Dentures South Surrey
Dentures are removable implants for missing teeth and surrounding gum tissue. If you live in South Surrey and are looking for qualified dentist for new dentures, call PowerSMILE Dental Centre today. There are two types of denture options: complete and partial dentures. Depending on your needs, either can be a fitting choice! PowerSMILE can help you with either options. If you are looking for dentures South Surrey, think PowerSMILE.
Partial dentures sound exactly how they look. Instead of having an entire set of new teeth, partial dentures replace missing teeth with implants to give you a complete smile. Partial dentures are teeth implants fixed to a pink gum-like base that clicks into your upper or lower palette. Like a retainer, they are removable and can be easily cleaned this way and can be a great alternative to implants. They are a great solution if most your natural teeth can be kept in healthy condition.
Complete dentures are for those who need a completely new set of teeth. Immediate dentures are given before a custom set are made to your specifications. 12 weeks after teeth removal, your gums will be healed enough for a full set of implants. The professionals at PowerSMILE Dental Centre will then walk you through how to take care of your dentures properly to last you a lifetime!
YOUR SOUTH SURREY DENTURES CENTRE
While it is possible to get complete dentures (replace all missing natural teeth), you also have the option of getting partial dentures. Unlike dentures in the past which were a painful process requiring remaining teeth to be removed before creating a mold that would fit into your mouth, dentures nowadays can retain natural teeth.
However, having enough structural support is still an issue. Loose or ill fitting dentures can affect speech, self- confidence and even your diet. Having a good set of healthy teeth allows you to chew healthy foods like raw veggies so you can get the nutrients necessarily for your body to thrive.
At PowerSMILE Dental Centre we offer complete & partial dentures made of cast (metal and plastic) and acrylic (hard plastic). Cast uses a metal alloy making the overall framework of the denture highly durable and strong. Acrylic is a more cost-effective and beneficial for those who will lose more natural teeth in the future (e.g. a patient undergoing gum disease) since it is easy to add teeth to the appliance.

Although designed for long term wear, your dentures will need to be realigned or remade overtime since your mouth changes as you age. This can cause dentures to feel loose and irritate gums so see Dr. Miral Hassan for a check up on a regular basis.
