Dentures in Victoria, BC
If you are struggling with tooth loss, Vancouver Island Prosthodontics offers denture services in Victoria, BC. Dr. John Keyes and his team understand major dental procedures can be stressful, but we address your concerns and alleviate your stress with dentures that aesthetically replace missing teeth and improve dental function.
Are Dentures Right for Me?
Increased use of cosmetic and durable materials have helped to improve denture fabrication. Not only are removable dentures comfortable and easy to care for, but they also allow you to smile with confidence. Dentures support ease of speech while improving function related to biting and chewing. There are multiple types of dentures available, and Dr. Keyes can help you determine which is right for your needs.
At Vancouver Island Prosthodontics, we offer complete and partial dentures. For those looking to avoid the challenges presented by a removable prosthesis, we also provide implant support for dentures. Speak with Dr. Keyes at your next appointment to discuss if your oral and overall health qualifies you as a candidate for full-arch restoration with dental implants.
The denture solutions available at our Victoria office include:
If you are missing all your natural teeth, complete dentures restore an entire dental arch. We typically schedule several appointments to provide an accurate fit for your dentures and make adjustments as needed. Our team takes detailed measurements and impressions of your jaw to create a model of your denture. Before fabricating final prosthetics, we can tweak measurements on the model to help your new teeth feel comfortable and look natural.
Partial dentures are used when patients are missing some, but not all, of their natural teeth. These removable dentures fill gaps and create the appearance of a full smile. Partial dentures are made up of artificial teeth attached to an acrylic base and a clasp or a metal framework. The clasp and base work together to hold the prosthetic in place.
An implant-supported denture uses implant posts as anchors for a full-arch prosthetic. Implants act as attachments for the denture, creating a sturdy framework and minimizing deterioration of the jawbone. Implant-supported dentures are often used on the lower jaw, where stability and resilience are paramount concerns. These are a great solution for patients who are fully edentulous and meet the bone health requirements for implant placement and integration.
Our Victoria prosthodontic practice features an in-house dental lab, allowing us to craft dentures specific to each patient’s needs. Having experienced technicians and the ability to do this work in our office also shortens the turnaround time between taking impressions and supplying the permanent restoration. Along with creating dentures, we offer services to reline, adjust, and replace them as needed.
