This is a full denture that replaces all teeth on either one or both arches. We custom design a smile that is unique to you. We only use premium acrylic and composite teeth resulting in a lifelike healthy smile.

Not all dentures are made the same way, or with the same types of materials and denture teeth. We specialize in precision crafted Dentures using advanced techniques and materials to ensure a comfortable fit and long-lasting wear for years to come.

The end result is not just a denture but a true to nature smile based on your unique facial characteristics and personality, as well as your preferences, that not only feels and functions great but a smile that fits you perfectly.


Surgical Immediate Dentures

Surgical / Immediate dentures are dentures made before or within 6 months of having extractions. You can have the dentures made ahead of time to be inserted at the time of extractions or wait a few days for the mouth to start healing. If you choose to wait you will have more control over the looks of your new teeth as they can be tried on before processing. Since each patient’s healing period and ability to accommodate an immediate denture varies we include all post care for 6 months.

A permanent denture may not always be the best choice. Instead, you may have a temporary option. This is usually the case when your Dental Surgeon has extracted damaged or decaying teeth that your Immediate dentures will replace. Or if you are having implants placed.

According to the Oral Health Foundation, your gums need time to heal & shrink (usually about 6 months) after an extraction. After this time, your denturists can craft permanent dentures Or reline your Immediate Dentures.

Partial dentures

What are partial dentures?

Partial dentures are usually removable dentures that replace one or multiple teeth in the upper or lower portion of your mouth. Partial dentures are more than cosmetic devices. They can also enhance chewing and speaking for the wearer. Partial dentures can also preserve the placement of the remaining teeth in your mouth, which may otherwise shift over time. Partial dentures aren’t usually intended for around-the-clock wear. Most Denturists will recommend removing partial dentures at night and cleaning them. According to a 2017 research review, cleaning partial dentures not only keeps them clean, but it also reduces the risk of developing cavities in nearby healthy teeth because you can brush around them properly.

Why would one need partial dentures?

You may benefit from partial dentures if you’ve lost teeth in the top or bottom of your jaw.
Some contributing factors to a loss of your teeth include:

  • injury
  • removal of teeth or extraction
  • decay

Whatever the reason, it’s important that your remaining teeth stay healthy. At Shuswap denture clinic we will construct the partial dentures with the benefit and preservation of your remaining teeth in mind.

What types of partial dentures are available?

Partial dentures may replace the front (anterior) portion of your teeth or the back (posterior) portion.

In a 2017 study, people who had anterior partial dentures reported the greatest level of satisfaction.

Different manufacturing techniques and materials mean that there are a lot of partial denture options out there. The following are some considerations to know about partial denture types.

Location in your mouth.

Partial dentures may replace the front (anterior) portion of your teeth or the back (posterior) portion.
In a 2017 study, people who had anterior partial dentures reported the greatest level of satisfaction.
The researchers in the study above thought that the level of satisfaction might’ve been because the dentures made the greatest cosmetic difference for people’s smiles. But replacing the front teeth with partial dentures can also help people bite into foods more easily.
Also, posterior dentures can aid in speaking and eating, which also enhances satisfaction.

Number of teeth.
Are you needing just your two front teeth or are you replacing all but two? Different types of dentures can be used, depending on the number of teeth being replaced.

Materials used
For the base of the dentures, a Denturist can use either plastic PMMA, resin or metal, such as a mixture of cobalt and chromium or titanium.

Metal base dentures are actually a hybrid of plastic and metal. The metal base supports the structure of the denture, and the teeth, the part that shows when you smile, are made of high-quality composite acrylic.
Partial metal dentures are generally the better choice. This is because metal bases are lighter, thinner and more durable than plastic alternatives.

Flexible dentures
Some people also choose another option for partial dentures called “flexible” dentures. These dentures are made from thin, lightweight thermoplastics and without visible metal clips.
However, flexible dentures are usually bulkier than metal alternatives because they can break if they are made too thin, according to a 2014 research review.
Also, you’ll put in flexible dentures differently than the other types. Most metal- and plastic-based dentures are inserted directly into your mouth.
With flexible dentures, you will usually warm the flexible dentures in water for a minute first to help the dentures better mold to your gums.

Attachments in your mouth
Denturists usually fit partial dentures with either clasps or precision attachments.
Clasps are usually made from metal and will hold on to (hug) your adjoining teeth to secure partial dentures in position. Depending on where the clasps are placed, the metal may be visible when you smile.
Precision attachments will attach onto prepared existing teeth or dental implants. precision attachments are customized to each patient.

How much do partial dentures cost?
Partial dentures vary in cost, based on a number of factors, including:

  • materials used
  • number of teeth replaced
  • location in your mouth
  • method of creating the dentures

You may also require dental care beforehand and denture adjustments after receiving your partial dentures.
We can book you in for a consultation to determine which type of partial denture is right for you.

How do I choose the right partial dentures for me?
When creating your partial dentures. We take several factors into account, such as:

  • anatomy of your mouth, including your hard and soft palate
  • your remaining teeth and how they fit together
  • your cosmetic goals

When considering the type of partial dentures you would like, ask yourself the following questions:
What allergies do I have? People with metal or acrylic allergies may need to wear flexible dentures.
Do I mind if someone sees metal clips for my partial dentures? If your missing teeth are in the back of your mouth, this factor may be less important. For front teeth, you may prefer acrylic or precision attachments.
At Shuswap Denture Clinic we are here to help you make the right choice for you.

The bottom line
According to a 2017 research review, an estimated 20% of adults in the United States have some missing teeth. If you have experienced a loss of teeth or trauma, but have some teeth left, partial dentures can help improve your smile. 🙂

Shuswap Denture Clinic offers Same-day relines or rebases to resize your dentures.
Denture relines can become necessary due to a number of factors that cause tissue to change, this includes weight loss, ageing etc.

As the bone naturally shrinks over time. there can be a space left between the denture and the jaw bone.
Ideally, as the denture is used the force from chewing is transferred onto the crest of the ridge.
As the ridge shrinks the dentures get looser, if not properly supported the pressure can be transferred to the edges of the denture and dig in causing sore spots. Or cause the unsupported denture to snap
Relines prevent the loose dentures from rock side to side, impacting the bone as they move. Which can cause the bone to shrink faster.
Properly sized Denture minimize bone loss and help prevent adverse oral conditions

Fast quality work, because no one wants to go without their smile.
