Choosing between Denturist or Dentist for dentures and dental implant solutions

We at Smile Denture Clinic best know how missing teeth can affect your smile and reduce your confidence. Our denturist in Ottawa understands how missing teeth often reduce your ability to speak properly, bite well and chew easily. They can also lead to a loss in facial muscle support. This can make you appear older than you are, or even lead to jaw problems. 

Our Ottawa denture clinic offers dentures and dental implants that are a perfect replacement for missing teeth. Of the two, dentures are a more affordable solution for our Ottawa denture patients. However, dentures need to be replaced every 5-8 years and may not be able to stop bone loss. Dental implant supported dentures on the other hand, are much more durable and have a number of advantages over conventional dentures, although at a higher price. Moreover, when deciding the best type of treatment many people do not know whether they should trust a dentist or a denturist.

Dentist or Denturist in Ottawa

Both dentist and denturist are dental professionals that work in the same field but specialize in different dental aspects. The dentist has general knowledge of dental care and can proceed with various medical procedures concerning your oral health. The denturist is specialized in more practical procedures. Denturists fabricate dentures to ensure their optimal fit, functionality and look.

At our Ottawa Denture Implant Clinic we often get calls from patients asking whether they should get dentures from a denturist or a dentist. On a few occasions, we even got calls from distressed patients unhappy with the fit and feel of the dentures they were provided by their dentists. Patients will often be unhappy with the fit, fell or bite of dentures and often need multiple adjustments in order to make a denture comfortable. Denturist will address these common concerns as a licensed professional who specializes in fabrication and fit of dentures. Our Ottawa denturist, Caner Karaceper will meet you as many times as required to ensure the absolute comfort and fit of your new dentures.

Denturists are denture professionals

Moreover, denturists spend years training on how to fabricate different types of dentures. In fact, denturists pass a clinical exam that ensures clients are given the best treatment and care. Hence, denturist is often your best choice when seeking quality, expertise and passion for creating dentures that fit, chew and look great.

A dentist on the other hand, is a great choice for most of the oral concerns and should be consulted regularly on your dental health. Moreover, here at Smile Denture and Implant Clinic we work with a large number of dentists. We coordinate our treatments with dentists in Ottawa to provide the best service for our clients. As a result, both dentist and denturist are a great choice, depending on your needs and preferences.

Dentures or Denture Implants Ottawa

A Denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth. It is the most affordable solution to missing teeth. There are two types of dentures commonly available: removable partial dentures and full or complete dentures. Full dentures are appropriate when all teeth are missing and partial dentures are appropriate when some teeth are missing.

What are dental implants?

Dental implant is an artificial root made of titanium metal that serves as a replacement for the root of one or more missing teeth. By being inserted into the jawbone, dental implants help preserve your facial structure. Over time, dental implant will become one with the bone and a sturdy foundation for replacement teeth. 

Dental implants act as a solution to bone loss caused by missing teeth. Missing teeth cause bone to shrink by 0.5 mm every year. In fact, bone loss can become so severe making it difficult to even wear dentures as there may be too little bone left to support them. Moreover, dental implants actually help preserve the bone. They do this by acting as natural tooth root and by bonding to the jaw over time.

How are dental implants inserted?

A specialized periodontists or oral surgeons normally complete teeth extractions if needed, and insert dental implants. They will take an x-ray of your head and jaw, as well as your overall health to determine if implants are the right choice for you. Inserted dental implants take a couple of months to heal and bond with the bone. Once the tissue has healed, an abutment will be attached to your implants.

Our denturist in Ottawa, Caner Karaceper will then take an impression and make an immediate denture right after your procedure. This will be your temporary denture until your gums heal. Then, our denturist will make a permanent full or partial implant retained denture for you. For our denture implant patients, we always work closely with dentist specialists to ensure good healing process. We ensure successful denture treatment by creating quality implant retained dentures that fit, feel and look great.

 Denture implants care

Because dental implants and replacement teeth act and look like your natural teeth, they will require cleaning and flossing. Also, you will need regular dental checkups to ensure dental implants are functioning right. Denture supported implants are a more expensive solution to missing teeth, and the cost of dental implants varies. Implant cost depends on a number of factors such as: number of implants needed, health and success of implant bonding. Nonetheless, dental implants have an astonishing success rate of 95 – 98%, making them a cost effective long term solution.

Implant retained dentures are a perfect solution for those wanting a natural smile that is worry free and that will last them a long time. Our denturist in Ottawa, Caner Karaceper cares for your overall well being and will ensure that our service exceeds your expectations.
