Standard dentures are the most cost effective option provided at our clinic. The dentures are fabricated using standard materials and the quality of teeth are composed of a softer layer, hence the dentures may need to be replaced sooner (4-5 yrs). This denture option consists of three appointments to complete the treatment. We will take a generalization of your facial structure to achieve an aesthetically pleasing appearance in the standard dentures.
Upgraded dentures provide you with greater fit and function. The dentures are fabricated to assure comfort. The quality of teeth used in the dentures are composed of a denser material which allows for greater chewing capabilities and in turn won't need replacing as soon as the standard dentures (5-7 years). The upgraded denture option consists of four appointments to complete the treatment. The broader selection of teeth shade and moulds allow us to present you with a natural smile which best suits your facial structure.
Equilibrated dentures are the optimum tissue supportive option we can offer at First Impressions. It includes comprehensive appointments from the impressions to measuring additional facial and jaw records to enable superior fit and function of the dentures. The quality of teeth used are composed of stronger material, which in some cases could last up to 10 years. Patients exhibiting in abnormal jaw positions or presenting with severely shrunken ridges should inquire about this option to accommodate their anomalies and increase rate of success. This treatment consists of five appointments to complete.
Immediate dentures are sometimes known as surgical dentures. These dentures are inserted after your natural teeth have been extracted, so you never go without having any missing teeth. Since each patient's recovery period and ability to accommodate the immediate denture varies the acceptance will differentiate as well. There are a number of benefits in having immediate dentures:
As the healing process takes place the tissues will resorb and you might feel movement in the dentures. We will be placing temporary liners to compensate for the tissue resorption that occurs. About 9-12 months after the extractions a permanent reline is necessary to "refit" the tissue surface with a permanent solution. At First Impressions our denturist will recommend the best option for your needs and help determine if an immediate denture is the right choice for you.
