Candidates for Dentures

Did you know that around one-quarter of adults over the age of 65 are missing all of their teeth? Dentures are a common and respectable solution to missing teeth. They are so dependable and natural-looking that you’ve probably spoken to someone with dentures and didn’t even know it. Do you think you might be a good candidate for dentures?

    To be a good candidate for this restorative treatment you should:
  • Wish to replace several or all of your teeth.
  • Not smoke or use other tobacco products.
  • Have a healthy jawbone (we can help you with this!).
  • Not suffer from dry mouth.
  • Be prepared to take good care of your dentures at home.
  • Continue to visit the dentist for routine exams – just like with natural teeth!

How do I take care of my dentures? Take care of your dentures with routine cleanings and examinations. Even patients with perfect prosthetics need to visit their dentist from time to time. During your visit, we will take a look at your dentures and how they’re fitting and we will also examine your gums, tongue, jaw and mouth inside and out. In short-- we care about your oral health. Not just your teeth.

    To care for your dentures at home:
  • Remove dentures overnight to let your mouth rest.
  • Soak dentures in warm water with or without denture cleanser.
  • Do not soak dentures with metal clasps in anything but warm water.
  • When not wearing dentures, keep them in water so they don’t dry out and warp.
  • DO NOT soak in hot water.
  • With dentures removed, clean and massage your gums.
  • If your toothbrush hurts your gums, run it under warm water or try using a finger wrapped in a clean damp cloth.
  • If you have partial dentures, brush your natural teeth as usual.

Cost of Dentures in Bracebridge

In you can expect to pay approximately $900 - $3500+ for full or partial dentures. The cost of dentures varies widely because there are dentures to suit many different needs. Full-mouth dentures can cost anywhere from $1,800 to $3500 and up. The cost for a full set of implant-supported dentures averages out to about $30,000 as a ball-park estimate.

    How is the cost of dentures determined? Here are some important factors:
  • The type of denture you need.
  • Dental extractions or other required preparations.
  • Xrays that may be needed.
  • Whether or not you get supportive implants.

Every case is different so it's important to speak with a dentist and to have an oral exam to allow us to evaluate your unique situation and provide you with different treatment options to consider. We would be happy to provide you with a more accurate quote.

Your consultation will include an examination of everything from your teeth, gums and soft tissues to the shape and condition of your bite. Generally, we want to see how your whole mouth looks and functions. Before we plan your treatment we want to know everything about the health and aesthetic of your smile, and, most importantly, what you want to achieve so we can help you get there.

Frequently Asked Questions

Dental bridges can be used to restore a gap caused by 1 to 3 missing teeth. Any number of missing teeth can be restored using dental implants. Dental implants typically have a higher initial investment cost and certain health requirements to qualify as a candidate for treatment.
With routine care and maintenance, your dentures should be good for 5 - 10 years. Aside from wear and tear on the dentures themselves, your mouth also changes over time and you may eventually decide it’s best to get fitted for a completely new set.
Yes, you can wear your dentures to bed but its recommended that you don’t. You should get into the habit of taking them out at night to soak so you can clean your mouth, gums and remaining natural teeth and then give your gums and jaw a chance to rest.
Your top dentures should suction to your gums. Your bottom dentures float above your gums but stay in place easily. Partial dentures should stay in line with natural teeth without moving very much. Implant-supported dentures snap in place and remain stable. If you’re questioning the fit of your denture, you are welcome to book an appointment so we can check your fit and make adjustments as needed.
After you’ve had some time to adjust to your dentures you should be able to eat almost anything. There are some foods that are hard on your dentures or that might cause rubbing or irritation. Foods that are hard or sticky like caramel, carrot sticks or a tough cut of meat or foods that contain little particles like popcorn or seeded crackers might present some challenge and should perhaps be enjoyed only as an occasional treat.

I felt like the people that work in this office are like family to each other. It was a comfort to me to see that, and once my visit was over I felt like I had just become part of that family. I am happy to have them as my dental office. Thanks Chris

The team at Cottage Country Dental is truly top notch. I have a big fear of going to the dentist, but this was honestly one of the best experiences I have had going to the dentist. Christine was extremely prompt when I submitted an online request for an appointment, and so lovely when I went in for my appointment. My hygienist Danielle was very gentle with the cleaning and regularly checked in throughout my appointment on how I was doing, she was honestly the best hygienist I have ever had, and big bonus she had Fleetwood Mac playing too! The dental assistant Kelly was also extremely kind and was very thorough with her explanations, more so than I have ever experienced at a dentist appointment. Dr. Danyal, while my visit was brief, was informative and very nice too. I was nervous about finding a new dentist after moving here a couple of years ago, but I am glad I chose the Cottage Country Dental team!

I had a very good experience not only as my initial visit as a new patient but also with my following appt for teeth extractions and a follow up. I was extremely nervous but they put me at ease and offer great options for "sleep dentistry". All in all I am very happy with Cottage Country and highly recommend them.
