We make sure your smile never leaves you!
Some dentures are a removable, set of artificial teeth that can be used in either the upper or lower jaw of the patient’s mouth. Some of them are attached via dental implants, giving you superior stability and help your jaw maintain its original shape. When attached by implants, they will also significantly reduce bone loss.
Old Villa Dental models and fits artificial teeth at our clinic in Hamilton. First your dentist will take an impression of your mouth to ensure the dentures fit correctly. They are then modelled to the proper shape and fitted into the patient’s mouth to look like real teeth.
Full and Partial Dentures
There are two kinds of artificial teeth: full and partial. Partial dentures are used to fill the space when teeth are still remaining in a set on either the upper or lower jaw. Full dentures are used when there are no teeth remaining in either the upper or lower jaw.
While artificial teeth are meant to be used for a long period of time, they may need to be readjusted or repaired at some point. This is because your gum tissue and bones may move over time. Just like teeth, dentures need to be cleaned daily to prevent a build-up of plaque and tartar. They can be cleaned using either chemical or mechanical cleaners.
