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. As a result, we are able to offer patients coordinated treatment plans for their required needs. Treatments now offered range from ‘flippers’, partial & complete dentures to implant retained dentures. We welcome inquiries about the ‘All On Four’ Implant Retained System which offers the closest possible fit and function to natural teeth. We also make mouth guards - both for sporting and night use - in both hard and soft material types. Snore guards are also available. Recently added is Zoom Whitening enabling a patient to enjoy a cleaner whiter look when choosing the tooth color of one’s denture.
WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT?
While offering all denture services, we are particularly pleased that both our denturists have training and experience in the field of implant retained dentures. These are dentures that snap onto implants in the patient’s jaw. Instead of having a denture which is fairly loose, this type of denture will snap in and stay put. There are a lot of myths in society about dental implants. For instance, a denture wearer needs only 2, 3, or 4 implants to hold their entire denture in place, as opposed to an implant for every tooth, as is commonly believed. Denture wearers need to be aware that they do not have to settle for conventional dentures, which usually are quite mobile, causing sore spots, and impeding chewing. In most cases, we can even cut out the palate of upper dentures! Imagine not having the roof of your mouth covered with acrylic! It is a life changing procedure for people. They are so happy with the results. Patients no longer worry about their dentures falling out and can eat things they couldn’t eat before. It gives a sense of security and boosts confidence. The costs are affordable when you see the great results. We believe that this technique, combined with full service traditional dentures and our friendly staff members, has helped Woodside Denture Centre build an enviable reputation in our community.
