Kerrisdale Denture Clinic provides quality full dentures to our patients. Our staff ensure quality and satisfaction by consulting with you about the process in designing accurate dentures. We take into account your expectations, esthetics, lifestyle issues and the most recent developments in technology advances. Our staff will then take the time to explain and recommend the best and most appropriate solutions.
Complete dentures are either "conventional" or "immediate." A conventional false teeth are placed in the mouth about a month after all the teeth are removed to allow for proper healing, whereas an immediate denture is placed as soon as the teeth are removed. The drawback behind an immediate denture is that it may require more adjustments after the healing has taken place.
It is important to continue having regular checkups so that a denturist can examine oral tissues for signs of abnormalities. As you age, your mouth will continue to change as the bone under your dentures shrinks or recedes.
To maintain a proper fit over time, it may be necessary to adjust your dentures or possibly re-evaluate them for realigns or new dentures. Never attempt to adjust your dentures yourself and do not use adhesives for a prolonged period because it can contribute to bone loss. When in doubt, please come in to consult our registered denturists (RD).
Complete Dentures are a matching set of Full Upper and Full Lower dentures that replace all your teeth. There are two types of complete dentures: conventional complete dentures and immediate complete dentures. Conventional Dentures can be fabricated between 3 to 4 appointments.
Immediate dentures are the solution we provide when the rest of your remaining teeth are due for extractions. Should you wish to avoid being completely without teeth for an extended period after extraction, we can start the procedure to fit you with immediate dentures prior to the extractions.
Our registered denturists (RDs) will make an impression of your existing teeth and gums prior to your surgery. They will then use those impressions in the construction of your new dentures, duplicating your original teeth or even improving their appearance should you desire.
Some guidelines on immediate dentures:
After your gums have completely healed, a permanent reline or measurements for a new denture is advisable to ensure a comfortable and exact fit. Our RD's have the prerequisite skills and years of experience to provide advice on options that best meets your specific needs.
DON’T MISS A DAY WITHOUT TEETH
Conventional dentures can’t be applied to your gums until they’ve healed completely from extractions, which can take 6 to 8 months, depending how you heal. However, with immediate dentures, you can have a upper, lower or complete set of dentures inserted immediately following extractions. To make sure you don’t miss a day without a full smile, we take impressions for your dentures weeks before extractions. By doing this, we can have a beautiful set of immediate dentures ready for you as soon as your extraction is done. After your extractions and the Dentist has inserted your Immediate Dentures, we will provide you with a temporary lining, which will help your gums during the healing period.
At our clinic, our licensed denturist, Giao Le, will make your dentures in-house, meaning she will work with you from initial consultation to fitting and follow up.
