Many of these problems can be avoided with the help of dentures. In many cases, partial or complete dentures can stop shifting and secure the original jaw and face shape. Northgate Dental Centre offers services for dentures in North Edmonton and the surrounding areas to help patients with these concerns. When you schedule a consultation, we'll evaluate your needs and get you started with the process.
You can expect the journey to include some or all of the following steps:
1. X-Ray and Consultation
At your first appointment, we'll assess the condition of your remaining teeth and take x-rays. Once we evaluate your condition, we'll discuss your options. Most often, patients choose between:
● Restoring teeth
● Installing partial dentures
● Extracting remaining teeth and installing full dentures
We will extend recommendations, but the final decision will be yours.
If you need to have teeth extracted, we can schedule a surgery to do so.
3. Fitting and Adjusting
In most cases, we will try to install the dentures immediately following surgery. Quick installation will allow you to leave with a full smile and allow the tissue to heal. A few days after the surgery and installation, we'll have you in for an adjustment.
4. Post-Op Checkup
To see how you feel after surgery, we'll schedule a post-op checkup. At this time, we'll evaluate your healing tissues and perform any necessary adjustments.
