A denture is a removable dental appliance replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissue. At our Calgary dental office, we are a provider of both complete and partial dentures.
A partial denture may be recommend when only select teeth are missing or have been extracted. Partial dentures help fill in the spaces created by these missing teeth and help prevent the remaining natural teeth from shifting.
A full or complete denture may be recommended when all of the teeth are missing. Complete dentures can be either “conventional” or “immediate.” A conventional denture is created after the teeth have been removed and the surrounding gum tissue has healed. This typically takes between 4 to 6 weeks.
