Dentures in Ottawa
Partial and complete traditional removable dentures are viable options for replacing your missing teeth. You may be a candidate for dentures if you’re missing teeth or are scheduled for several extractions, or if you have bone loss. Talk to your dedicated dentist at Billings Bridge Dental Centre about your out-of-pocket costs and benefit coverage for removable restorations and other treatments for gum disease or extraction when considering dentures—we are always happy to help you learn the best way to manage the costs of dental care.
Why Get Dentures?
Dentures may be partial or complete, depending on whether you’re missing all your teeth or if you still have some natural teeth left. Dentures can be used for aesthetic purposes, perfecting your smile and raising your self-esteem. They are also helpful for chewing, speech, digestion, and in the case of partial dentures, keeping your natural teeth in place.
How Long Does It Take to Get Dentures?
On average, traditional denture appointments take 2-3 visits with additional appointments for extraction or gum treatment if needed. We take digital impressions and send them to a professional laboratory to create your final denture plate and then schedule your next appointment approximately two weeks later. When your dentures are complete, your dentist will make any necessary adjustments and teach you how to clean your restoration effectively. We encourage regular follow-up exams to check for any needed repairs or adjustments.
