Our Denture Services at Accufit Denture Centre in Saskatoon
Whether you have considered dentures or not, if you have missing teeth, now may be a great time to talk to our experts at Accufit Denture Centre. We would be glad to inform you about the services that we provide and their resulting benefits.
Our location in Saskatoon provides custom-fitted, complete, full or partial dentures. We also offer a number of services and products for patients who already have dentures. We can provide temporary relines, denture cleaning supplies and caps.
Complete dentures are designed for patients who are missing all their natural teeth or are looking for replacements for their current set of dentures. Dentures are available as standard, precision, and soft-liners.
Standard dentures are more economical and fabricated using simpler methods.
Precision dentures are higher-end customized prosthetics and aim to more closely mimic your natural teeth.
Soft-liners are cushion-like materials that are bonded to the lower denture, for patients who experience chronic lower ridge sensitivity, have minimal bone support, or who have a tough time wearing hardliner dentures.
Immediate dentures are a suitable option for people who are looking to transition from natural teeth to dentures. These dentures act more like a bandage on the site of extracted teeth, allowing your mouth to heal before a more permanent option is installed.
Partial dentures are designed for patients who have lost some of their natural teeth, but not all of them. They are often constructed from metal and acrylic composition or completely out of acrylic. We aim to create a removable partial denture that addresses your specific needs.
When a partial denture is designed, the denturist will take into account the strain that chewing places on your remaining teeth and designs it so that the stress is distributed evenly across your remaining teeth and tissue.
Implant Stabilized Dentures
An implant stabilized denture is a denture that is attached to a post implanted into the gums. This provides extra stability during eating and talking, which provides you with more confidence. It also reduces loss of bone density and soft tissue. It often provides a feeling that is close to that of a natural tooth.
If you struggle with your dentures moving while chewing or talking, you might want to think about implant dentures. They minimize denture movement and allow for a stronger bite force.
Dentures can wear out, crack, and break due to time and use. Whether you’ve had a chip, a tooth pop out, or the base become cracked, you can count on us to provide prompt denture repair services to restore your dentures to good working condition again. Our denture repairs can often even be done on a same-day basis.
Over time, your mouth may change shape. Changes in the underlying tissues, bone loss, and other factors can cause these alterations. These changes mean your dentures will not fit properly anymore, which leads to chafing, pain, and discomfort in your mouth.
When that happens, relines become necessary to maintain your oral health. Our denturist will take an impression of your oral tissue and add new base material to your existing dentures to ensure a correct fit once again.
Check-Ups & Cleaning
Regular check-ups to make sure your oral cavity and your dentures are in good condition are always a good idea.
Patients who have had extractions should visit for aftercare appointments throughout their first year of dentures. After that, it is a good idea to schedule a visit every 2-3 years to ensure maximum comfort and functionality.
During a check-up, we will:
Update any changes in your medical or dental history.
Perform an examination of your oral cavity, assess the tissue and bone.
Check the stability, bite, and integrity of your denture.
Review your oral hygiene care routine.
Answer any questions or concerns you may have.
Besides providing denture solutions, Accufit Denture Centre also administers high-quality mouth guards. These fitted guards are perfect for all types of physical activities.
