Dentures in West Vancouver
A denture is a removable dental device that is commonly used to fill any gaps between the teeth. They are used as an alternative to crowns and bridges to replace any missing teeth. Complete dentures are used when all of the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used to fill either one or several missing teeth.
Creating Your Denture
In order to create a denture, your dentist will take a series of impressions of your jaws and teeth. They will then create a physical mould of your teeth and send it to the dental lab for fabrication. The lab technicians will create a denture that is perfectly formed to fit your mouth with teeth that are colour matched to your existing teeth.
Maintaining Your Dentures
Caring for your dentures involves routine cleaning throughout the day. Brush your teeth and rinse your dentures after every meal to prevent bacteria from accumulating. Don’t brush your dentures using toothpaste, as they may contain abrasives that may scratch and damage the denture material. We also recommend soaking your dentures overnight in a denture solution for optimized cleaning.
