Full Dentures in Oakville for a Complete Smile

Full dentures - also known as complete dentures - replace all of your teeth, providing you with a full, new smile. If you have lost all of your teeth, or your jaw will not sustain partial or implant dentures, complete dentures in Oakville are the perfection solution for you. Complete dentures consist of replacement teeth and an acrylic base that is designed to look like natural gums. These dentures are held in place by suction and are removable so you can sleep in comfort at night. Burloak Denture Clinic offers complete dentures in Oakville for patients who have lost all of their teeth or those who need to have all of their teeth extracted.

Types of Full Dentures

Complete dentures come in two types: immediate and conventional.

  • Immediate dentures are made before your teeth are removed and are placed immediately after the procedure. Your mouth will require about a six month healing period, and the dentures will probably take some time to get used to. Immediate dentures are a great option because you are never without teeth, but after the healing period they may require many adjustments. After an extraction you will immediately be placed with your new dentures so that you can chew and talk as you normally would.
  • Conventional dentures are made and inserted into your mouth after your teeth have been extracted and after the gums and jaw tissue have completely healed. This means you are without teeth for about six months, but they are often a more comfortable fit, and they are very sturdy. They also require fewer adjustments because your jaw will move less after it has healed.

Whichever type of complete dentures you seek in Oakville, your denturist will make the perfect set that fits your mouth. If you find recurring discomfort with your dentures, Burloak Denture Clinic offers relines and repairs. Your dentures can be easily adjusted and repaired at our clinic or at your home during emergencies. Be sure not to adjust them yourself as this can lead to unrepairable damage.

Eating with Complete Dentures

The replacement teeth of your complete dentures aren’t quite as strong as natural teeth, so we recommend avoiding foods that can damage your new teeth or get stuck between them such as:

  • Hard foods like raw carrots, apples or corn-on-the-cob
  • Popcorn
  • Sticky candies and nut butters (like peanut butter)
  • Nuts and seeds
  • Steak and tough meats

Caring for Your Dentures in Oakville

While dentures are not made of organic matter and cannot get cavities, to keep their pearly white colour you will need to brush your dentures to keep them clean. If you take your dentures out at night, we recommend keeping them in a water solution so they won’t dry out. We also provide custom-fitted mouth guards to protect your dentures if you grind your teeth.
