About Woodside Denture Centre
Since Woodside Denture Centre first opened in Airdrie in December 2003, many changes have occurred. Megan Skarsen most recently became its owner introducing not only a new look to the office but also many upgrades to the treatments being offered. She & her associate Trish Pitchford have established a mutually respectful liaison with dentists not only in Airdrie, but also many surrounding communities.
In addition to offering a wide range of dentures, we provide services that keep your dentures at their best as well as to ensure that they are reliable for years to come. Below is a listing of just some of the services we offer at woodside.
Unfortunately, the longer you wear the denture, the more your gums change underneath it, and the looser it gets. In order to restore the retentive qualities of the denture, and to prevent it from irritating your gums, you should have the denture professionally relined at least every two years.
Permanent Soft Denture Liners
These are resilient or “rubbery” surfaces that are placed in the denture (usually the lower) to provide a cushion. This cushioning is most often required by people with flattened lower ridges. This is done either when you have new dentures made or existing ones relined. After a new denture has been inserted, it ought to retain in the mouth quite nicely due to the fact that the shape of the inside of the denture base conforms closely to the shape of the gums.
Those who wear dentures on daily basis occasionally experience a broken denture that is caused by various reasons including; age of the denture, eating hard foods, or the accidental fall onto the floor or sink, as well as damage caused by a pet. Denture Repair can remedy most broken dentures to a like-new, useful condition, where the broken dentures pieces can be reconstructed professionally using real denture acrylic material.
Dentures can help whether you are missing all of your teeth or just a few. We can make your dentures look as natural as your current teeth or if there are things you do not like about your natural smile we can change it. It is up to you! The dentures may even improve your look by giving you a more confident smile and filling out the appearance of your face and profile.
There are several types of dentures available; their cost will vary depending on the materials used and the necessary steps taken to make them.
Conventional or Standard Dentures
Conventional dentures are those that are placed once the bones and gums have healed after the removal of natural teeth(At least 1 year after extractions).
Immediate dentures, as the name implies, are placed as soon as the natural teeth are removed. With immediate dentures, the patient no longer needs to face the world without teeth.
Instead of traditional plastic prosthetic teeth, natural looking cosmetic dentures are made with modern five to seven layer composite teeth.
Removable Partial Dentures
A removable partial denture is usually made to replace one or more teeth, and is customized to a patient’s specific requirements. Removable partial dentures restore a person’s natural appearance and greatly improve the ability to chew and speak clearly.
Implant-retained dentures are an increasingly popular option for replacing missing teeth rather than conventional bridges or partial dentures. Implants, used in conjunction with an overdenture can provide a patient with a fixed denture solution. That’s right, no more Polident or other adhesives! Many patients with implant-retained dentures can eat food they once didn’t think to try greatly increasing their quality of life.
