Eligibility For Dentures

Were you aware that approximately one quarter of adults aged 65 and over have lost all their teeth? Dentures present a prevalent and honourable remedy for tooth loss, offering such reliability and natural appearance that you’ve likely interacted with denture wearers without realizing it. Could you be a suitable candidate for dentures?

    To be a suitable candidate for this restorative procedure, you should:
  • Desire to replace multiple or all of your teeth.
  • Refrain from smoking or using other tobacco products.
  • Possess a healthy jawbone (we can assist you in achieving this!).
  • Not experience persistent dry mouth.
  • Be committed to maintaining your dentures at home.
  • Continue with regular dental check-ups, akin to caring for natural teeth!

Maintaining your dentures requires routine cleanings and examinations, as even those with perfect prosthetics need periodic dental visits. During these visits, we assess the fit of your dentures and examine your gums, tongue, jaw, and the entirety of your mouth, emphasizing holistic oral health.

    For at-home care of dentures:
  • Remove your dentures overnight to allow your mouth to rest.
  • Soak dentures in warm water, with or without denture cleanser, avoiding hot water.
  • For dentures with metal clasps, use only warm water for soaking.
  • When not in use, keep dentures submerged in water to prevent drying and warping.
  • Clean and massage your gums with the dentures out; if a toothbrush causes discomfort, soften it under warm water or use a finger wrapped in a clean, damp cloth.
  • For those with partial dentures, continue regular brushing of natural teeth.

The Cost Of Dentures In Calgary

You can anticipate paying roughly $900 – $3500+ for full or partial dentures, with the wide range due to the variety of needs dentures can address. Full-mouth dentures might range from $1,800 to $3500 and above, while a full set of implant-supported dentures generally averages around $30,000 as a ballpark figure.

The cost of dentures is determined by several significant factors, including:
  • The specific type of denture required.
  • Any necessary dental extractions or preparations.
  • Potential need for X-rays.
  • Decision to opt for supportive implants or not.

Since every case varies, consulting with a dentist and undergoing an oral exam are essential to assess your individual needs and explore various treatment options. This will enable us to offer you a more precise cost estimate.

Your consultation will include an examination of everything from your teeth, gums and soft tissues to the shape and condition of your bite. Generally, we want to see how your whole mouth looks and functions. Before we plan your treatment we want to know everything about the health and aesthetic of your smile, and, most importantly, what you want to achieve so we can help you get there.

Frequently Asked Questions

With regular care and maintenance, your dentures should remain in good condition for 5 – 10 years. Beyond the natural wear and tear on the dentures themselves, changes in your mouth over time might necessitate getting fitted for an entirely new set.

Your upper dentures should adhere through suction to your gums, while the lower ones hover above the gums but remain stable. Partial dentures should align with natural teeth, exhibiting minimal movement. Implant-supported dentures, on the other hand, should snap securely in place. If you have concerns about the fit of your denture, feel free to schedule an appointment, and we can assess the fit and make any necessary adjustments.

Dental bridges are a suitable solution for restoring a gap resulting from one to three missing teeth. In contrast, dental implants can be used to address any number of absent teeth. However, dental implants often come with a higher initial cost and necessitate specific health criteria to be met for eligibility.

While it is possible to wear your dentures to bed, it is advisable not to do so. It’s beneficial to develop the habit of removing them at night for soaking, allowing you to clean your mouth, gums, and any remaining natural teeth. This practice also gives your gums and jaw the opportunity to rest.

Once you’ve acclimated to your dentures, you should be able to consume almost any food. However, certain foods can be tough on your dentures or might cause rubbing or irritation. Items that are hard, sticky, or contain small particles—such as caramel, carrot sticks, tough cuts of meat, popcorn, or seeded crackers—could be challenging and might be better enjoyed occasionally.

I love Dr. Dina, she is great. She cares. She listens. She takes the time to talk to you and explain. She is comforting. She has a wonderful sense of humour. Her skills are top rated. I came from a very bad dentist situation of pain, I thought I may have to be sedated from now on. Because of Dr Dina I feel comfortable having dental work done without sedation.

Thank you Dr Dina.

I highly recommend Dr Dina.
