If you are only missing one or a few teeth, a partial denture, or bridge, could be the answer! At Swiss Denture Clinic, the process towards providing our patients with partial dentures includes a first consultation, a dental impressions appointment followed by a fitting appointment after which the patient can start using the prosthesis and come back for final adjustments.
Most patients use partial dentures either temporarily or long-term, depending on their needs. Temporary acrylic dentures can be used before a surgery or during the healing period after teeth extractions, to be replaced with permanent ones once the healing is complete. Temporary partial dentures can be worn for up to 2 years. On the other hand, with good care and annual checkups, long-term partial dentures with metal frameworks can be used for up to 5 to 7 years.
Our clinic offers a wide range of removable partial dentures that are typically made of replacement teeth attached to a gum-coloured plastic base, which can be attached by metal framework that holds the denture in place in the mouth. A partial denture may have a metal framework and clasps that connect to your remaining natural teeth or they can have other connectors that are more natural looking. In some cases, a removable partial denture is made to attach to your natural teeth with devices called precision attachments.
We also offer implant-supported partial dentures, which are sometimes recommended to give extra support to an unstable lower jaw prosthesis.
GETTING THE RIGHT FIT FOR YOUR DENTURES
Whether it’s your first set of dentures, or you’re replacing a set you’ve had for years, you’ll need to go to a denture clinic to make sure you get a perfect fit. Here’s what to expect when getting fitted for dentures at Swiss Denture Clinic in Calgary.
If this is your first set of dentures, we will provide a consultation to help you decide which kind of denture is the best choice: full, partial or implant. We’ll assess the condition of your remaining teeth, which will allow us to recommend the best overall strategy for your dental care. If a tooth or several teeth are no longer viable and need to be extracted, we’ll arrange for you to see a dentist before we begin fitting you for dentures.
We’ll make a mould of your jaw and help you choose the right tooth size, shape and colour so your dentures look as natural as possible.
