Our In-House Denturist in Keswick Can Help You Regain Your Smile

For your convenience, we have an in-house denturist in Keswick who can restore your natural appearance and your ability to eat and speak. For many people, dentures remain the restorative treatment of choice.

Dentures are removable, custom-fitted replacement teeth that are crafted from strong, durable materials like acrylic resin which can be reinforced with porcelain or metal. There are two main types of dentures: complete and partial.

Complete dentures from your denturist in Keswick replace all your teeth. You may require both an upper and lower prosthetic. They can be placed immediately after tooth extraction or after a lengthier healing period. There are advantages and disadvantages to both approaches, and we can review these together to find the best option for your unique smile.

Partial dentures correct only the gaps in your smile by anchoring removable dentures to your natural teeth with metal clasps or nearly invisible devices called precision attachments. By filling in gaps, partials can help to prevent further decay, gum disease, or the shifting of your remaining teeth.

Here are a few interesting stats on dentures and tooth loss…

  • In Canada, the number of people without any natural teeth has dropped since 1990.
  • Complete tooth loss occurs most often in adults aged 40 and older.
  • Severe tooth loss affects 2% of the world’s population.
  • If unaddressed, missing teeth can result in nutritional changes, coronary artery disease, diabetes, obesity, and certain cancers.

With proper care, your dentures will provide a natural looking, functional smile for up to 10 years. Please call us! Dentures could be your smile solution!

Yours in excellent dental health,
