Complete Dentures

Complete dentures are needed when all teeth either on the upper or lower jaw must be replaced. At River Side West Family Dental Centre, we offer complete dentures in Owen Sound, both conventional and immediate. Upon a consultation, we can advise of all of the treatment options available to you and help you choose the appropriate dentures for your lifestyle.

  • Conventional dentures
Conventional dentures require a healing period before they are placed. Once teeth are removed, gum tissue is allowed to heal for 8 to 12 weeks before conventional dentures can be placed.
  • Immediate dentures

Immediate dentures can be placed as soon as teeth are removed, ensuring the patient does not have to be without teeth during a healing period. The option of immediate dentures does come with more dental visits as bones and gums shrink over time, requiring more adjustments to fit properly. Most denture professionals consider immediate dentures a temporary solution until a set of conventional dentures are made.


Partial Dentures

If one or more natural teeth remain, a removable partial denture may be considered. This denture is made of a gum coloured base and is usually connected by metal framework that clips on the remaining natural teeth. A partial denture will not only fill the gap left by the missing tooth or teeth, but will also keep the remaining natural teeth from shifting out of their current positions.
