THE BEAUTIFUL SMILE
of which you
A versatile option
Are you partially or completely edentulous in one or both of your jaws and does this affect your daily life? At Centre dentaire Emmanuelle Seica, we can design a dental prosthesis perfectly adapted to your needs.
Our team of dental professionals wants all patients to be able to smile with pride. For this reason, we offer several solutions for replacing missing teeth. When there are many teeth to be replaced on the same jaw or when the patient is completely toothless, dentures are in most cases a versatile and economical treatment option.
Full or partial prothesis dentures ?
Full prothesis dentures, which are well known as “dentures”, are an excellent way to treat patients who are toothless. We can create a prosthesis that will replace all the missing teeth on the same jaw, using artificial teeth that have a natural appearance. They can be used on the upper jaw and/or the lower jaw. A portion of the prosthesis also mimics the gum so that it fits discreetly in the mouth. The full denture is usually held in place by suction on the gums and palate, on which it is placed. It must be removed for cleaning and at night for better hygiene.
Partial denturesare used for patients with missing or damaged teeth. We use them to replace several teeth on the same jaw. Most of the time, this type of prosthesis is removable, which means that it can be taken out like a full denture, and it is attached to the surrounding natural teeth with metal clasps. Partial dentures are an aesthetic and practical solution that not only improves the appearance of the patient’s smile and face, but also has a beneficial effect on chewing and speaking.
Through an assessment of your needs and a thorough oral examination, Dr. Seica can determine if these options are appropriate for replacing your missing natural teeth.
Even though they are artificial teeth, dentures must be maintained on a daily basis, as is the case with natural teeth. This is because plaque also forms on dentures, whether they are partial or complete. Even if this does not cause cavities or dental pain, plaque can lead to negative consequences such as tartar build-up or bad breath. If you take good care of your dentures, there is no doubt that they will last much longer.
Our advice for the maintenance of your prostheses
- Remove your dentures after each meal to clean them properly ;
- Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and a mild cleaning product to clean your dentures ;
- Avoid using bleach to clean your dentures at all costs. In addition to being potentially dangerous for your health, it could yellow the artificial teeth on the denture.
