Project Description

Dentures

Tooth loss can happen to anyone due to many factors. To help someone with a missing tooth or teeth, there are several options that restore a functional, beautiful and realistic smile.

Grande Prairie Family Dental Clinic can create custom-made dentures and implants, making the replacement of missing teeth easier than ever. Implants and dentures offer a natural-looking improvement to your smile. Plus, they provide support that will help a patient eat easier and speak comfortably.

Types of Dentures

Dentures are often the option for those with several missing teeth and act as a removable replacement. Dentures fall into two larger categories: full dentures, which replace a full set of teeth, and partial dentures, which replace just a few missing teeth. Within these categories, different specific types of dentures may be chosen based on jaw and tooth conditions.

  • Traditional Dentures: These types of dentures sit on top of the gums instead of being anchored to the jaw, so they are removable. They can be customized to perfectly fit the jaw and give a natural-looking smile.
  • Implant Retained Dentures: These dentures offer the most jaw stability. They are anchored by implants in the jaw and locator receptors on the dentures. This makes putting them in and removing them an easy task. Depending on how they are attached to the jaw, some are removable, while others provide permanent teeth replacement.

If you are missing teeth, getting dental implants can protect your jaw and prevent uncomfortable movement. Book your consultation with one of our dentists to determine the best options for your needs.

Invisalign is a clear aligner that are orthodontic devices and are transparent, in a plastic form. These are used for the same purpose as “traditional braces” you’ve likely seen before. Invisalign is a great option for anyone looking to straighten their teeth and improve their overall smile. Many people chose Invisalign over braces because it is easier to continue your day-to-day oral health care routine, rather than have a permanent brace covering the majority of your tooth.

Here is a list of beneficial reasons to use Invisalign; Invisible Appearance, Comfort, Improved Cleanliness, Saves Time, Safe and Removable, Better Dental Health, Beautifully Straight Teeth, Shorter time period, and an overall more enjoyable experience!

With Invisalign – (typically referred to as an aligner) patients will be left with a lovely smile, and can leave knowing their teeth have been set straight, with less of a hassle than braces. Braces tend to pull on the teeth much more than Invisalign, making Invisalign aligners a much more enjoyable and easier experience. Contact us to learn more!
