Dentures With Franklin

Fort McMurray Family Dentists

Have you lost your teeth or do you feel oral pain every day? Stop suffering and come to Franklin Dental where we provide the best oral health for a pain free, naturally winning smile. When you go out to celebrate your Birthday it is fun to crunch down on freshly buttered popcorn or enjoy a chocolate ice cream cone. We want you to be able to enjoy the freedom to indulge in your favourite snacks but without teeth it is impossible. The solution is to get dentures.

Dentures are false teeth and gums that replace removed, lost or seriously painful teeth.

Our dentures are custom designed to fit your teeth and mouth. Dentures come in an array of options.

Aftercare Instructions
You will experience some discomfort with any new denture for a few days. All new dentures need several adjustments to completely and comfortably fit your mouth. Please read and follow the aftercare instructions below. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at 780-790-0088.

Your Options

For Dentures

Full/Complete and Partial Dentures: With the same qualities as partial dentures, full ones replace all of your teeth on the top and bottom of your gum line and are held in place by an oral adhesive or suction. Partial dentures only replace a few teeth.

● Can be removed for cleaning and sleeping since they are not permanent.

Immediate Dentures 

With Franklin Dental

● Used straight after a tooth extraction and worn during healing.
● Disposed of when permanent dentures are ready to be placed in your mouth.
● Created before your teeth are removed or replaced.

● Easy to refit, accommodating your mouth changes and swelling of the gums and jaw

Let’s get you those dentures so you can eat all the delicious food you want during that special celebration of yours!

Overdentures With Franklin

● Fitted over the roots of your natural teeth, resting here or on dental implants if there are no natural teeth left
● Easily removable
● Alternative to traditional dentures that feel very uncomfortable or when you only have a few of your natural teeth remaining

Implant Supported

● Anchored in your mouth with dental implants

We will inform you about all the ways to care for your dentures but below is a list of some things to follow after treatment.

After Care 

For Your Dentures

● Keep your dentures in for the first 24 hours
● Get rest

● Use ice packs to reduce swelling
● Gently apply a biting pressure to your dentures within the first 4 hours

● Avoid alcohol consumption because it will act as a blood thinner

Once you have dentures it is important that you keep them clean.

Denture Cleaning

● Brush with a soft toothbrush using a mild soap or denture cleaner but DO NOT use regular toothpaste, other cleaners or an electric toothbrush as these will damage and wear your dentures away.

● Rinse well after cleaning
● Remove your dentures before going to sleep so as to avoid dislodging or damage. Denture removal also allows for your gums to relax.
● Clean your natural teeth and gums with a gentle, wet toothbrush and toothpaste containing fluoride. You may eve use a washcloth if your brush is too harsh on your gums.
● To keep your dentures from drying out, put them in warm water where they will avoid getting misshapen. You can use a denture soaking solution only if your dentures have no metal parts because this solution will tarnish metal.
● Clean your dentures on a daily basis by running water over them to get rid of food particles

Frequently Asked Questions

What can I expect when wearing dentures for the first time?
You will experience some discomfort with any new dentures for a few days. All new dentures need several adjustments to completely and comfortably fit your mouth.
How long before I’m able to eat with dentures?

1.5 hours after getting dentures, but we recommend soft and nutritious foods for the first several days.

What are my options for dentures?
Full/Complete and Partial Dentures are available. With the same qualities as partial dentures, full ones replace all of your teeth on the top and bottom of your gum line and are held in place by an oral adhesive or can be removable. Partial dentures only replace a few teeth.
How long should you wear dentures each day?
You should be wearing your dentures for at least 8 hours a day.

What is the average cost of dentures?
In Canada, the average cost for full dentures is approximately $1800.00, while partial dentures can cost between $1300.00 to $2000.00. This is, however, just an estimate, as no dentures are made to be exactly alike.

How do I care for my dentures?

Gently clean your dentures daily with a soft-bristled toothbrush and nonabrasive toothpaste to remove food and plaque. If you use denture adhesive, be sure to remove any remaining adhesive. Soak dentures overnight or with a mild denture-soaking solution and wash thoroughly before placing them back into your mouth. For new dentures, you can find more aftercare instructions here.

How do you know when it’s time to reline dentures?

We recommend you reline your dentures every 1-2 years. However, if you are feeling discomfort or your dentures are loose, call us and book an appointment for a reline sooner!
