Dentures can be made in different ways, and with varying qualities of materials and equipment. Not all dentures are created equal, and your free consultation is the best way to gather information on the different methods and materials that are available as choices in the construction of your new denture(s). During your visit to our office, we will explain the differences between standard and precision dentures and answer any questions you may have. Whichever option you choose, your prosthesis is handcrafted to match your age, complexion and facial features. Considerations such as the shape of your jawline, lips, eyes, eyeglasses and hair colour are noted. The teeth are set to produce a pleasing smile, customized to your liking.
Premium Precision Dentures
Patients who have unusual conditions in their temporal mandibular joint, [jaw joint, (TMJ)], or oral cavities may require additional extensive measurements to accommodate their needs. A precision denture provides maximum function during everyday life activities, optimizing the ability to eat, speak or laugh confidently.
Precision premium dentures incorporate measurements of your TMJ, as well as your oral cavity and jaw relationship. These measurements are transferred to a precise, semi adjustable instrument that closely duplicates the natural movement of your jaw. The measurements allow the denturist to recreate the majority of intricate movements associated with eating. Further measurements guide the denturist in the placement of your teeth for maximum aesthetics and ideal speech patterns with your new denture. Using special techniques to register accurate jaw measurements, personalized aesthetics and premium materials, a denturist can provide a superior prosthesis.
Standard dentures may fit comfortably and function reasonably well, however, they are constructed using physiological averages on a non-adjustable machine. This means that the measurements and positional relationships of how a denture should work are based on a range of average values, not from a patient’s individual anatomy and how their jaws function. As a result, standard dentures will not perform optimally for many patients.
