Dentures Near You
Missing teeth can negatively impact your quality of life, from difficulties eating to being self-conscious when you smile. In addition, missing teeth can take a toll on your oral and overall health. The gaps can harbour bacteria, which can lead to infection and inflammation. We provide dentures in Malton to replace missing teeth and improve your oral health.
What are Dentures?
Dentures are a set of removable and customized artificial teeth. Since they are custom-made, they will comfortably fit in your mouth. Please keep in mind that dentures are not as strong as your natural teeth. However, they will still greatly improve the functionality of your teeth. They are a great option to help you become confident in your smile once again.
There are two types of dentures available. Partial dentures are used to replace a few missing teeth, while complete dentures replace your entire upper or lower arc of teeth. Partial dentures will be matched to the colour of your existing teeth to naturally blend into your smile. These dentures are secured with tiny clasps.
Complete dentures, on the other hand, are great for patients who have lost all or most of their teeth. The dentures can be put on immediately after any remaining extractions, or they can be fabricated after the extraction (conventional).
The Benefits of Receiving Dentures
Dentures can provide patients with many benefits, some of which include:

How to Care For Your Dentures
Dentures are extremely fragile, so please ensure you handle them with care. It’s important to clean your dentures on a daily basis with a soft-bristled toothbrush and a clear, mild soap. You should also remove your dentures and place them in a solution at night unless otherwise directed by our dentist.
