Complete Dentures in Oakville


Oakville dentures - Oakville family cosmetic dentist As unfortunate as it is, missing teeth are a reality that many of us have faced. Thankfully, we have solutions at our Oakville dental office. Depending on the number and location of lost teeth we can determine what of the many available replacement options are best for you. At our Oakville dental office we believe the traditional and still reliable option for replacing missing teeth is dentures. While dentures have been around hundreds, if not thousands of years, today's dentures are made from durable thermoplastics and cast metals. All dentures are removable. This can be a benefit and a drawback.


Complete Dentures in Oakville

At our Oakville family dental office, we use complete, or full dentures in situations where there are no remaining teeth in your upper or lower arch (ridge). They sit directly on your gums. Some call them false teeth. They are made of acrylic and replace receded gums as well as missing teeth.

Advantages to Complete Dentures:

  • can be fabricated quickly
  • can be esthetically good
  • replaces missing teeth and gums that have shrunk away as a result of tooth loss
  • relatively low cost
  • long history of use

Disadvantages to Complete Dentures:

  • removable
  • movement during eating and speaking
  • inability to chew many foods - only low biting & chewing pressure can be produced
  • lower complete dentures sit on a smaller area ( uppers have roof of the mouth to sit on too) allowing for poor retention and support that worsens over time
  • pressure directly on gums and underlying bone causes continued bone loss over time. This leads to poor support and retention over time and the need for relines.
  • taste problems
  • food accumulation underneath as you eat
  • large size may be too much for some causing gagging
  • risk of breakage
  • need to remove at bedtime

If you think complete dentures may be the right treatment for you or you've lost several teeth, contact Dr. Rosenblat, the Oakville dentist today!
