Full/Partial Dentures in North York
For patients who are missing multiple teeth, partial or complete dentures may be a suitable treatment option to replace them. Replacing multiple missing teeth can be very beneficial for function (chewing and speech), and appearance. They prevent facial muscles from sagging and provide support for soft tissues such as lips and cheeks.
Dentures however, will not prevent bone loss related to absence of teeth and in some cases could even accelerate the process. Increased need for relining adhesives, and in some cases numbness of the lip or chin are direct results of this process.
Dental implants can be used as an anchor, by creating stability and preventing bone loss. This will result in a well fitting denture and better aesthetic results in the long run.
