Complete Dentures

Patients with no natural teeth left must resort to using a prosthetic device (denture) that is designed to replace their natural teeth. Historically, removable dentures were the norm, but they were far from ideal solutions. There was often less than optimal functionality (bite), gradual resorbtion of the upper and/or lower jaws and an increased fragility of the remaining jawbone. Aesthetically, the bone resorbtion creates the visibly recessed jaw line that becomes evident when the dentures are removed. Despite the shortcomings of this treatment solution and our recommendation to work with implant supported dentures whenever possible, there are cases and circumstances where removable dentures are the only alternative. In those instances, Dr. Shaw works closely with the dental lab technicians to ensure that the design of the dentures is comfortable and functional.

After completing your procedure, it might take a little time to adjust to your complete dentures, but by talking to your dentist, we will be able to advise on what to expect and help put your mind at ease. With a little practice over time, you will be back to your usual self in no time. To help keep your complete dentures in perfect condition, you should follow a daily cleaning regime. Your dentures will give you a healthy life, helping you gain your confidence to carry your daily activities with utmost conviction.
