Complete dentures are usually considered to replace teeth that have been extracted due to serious gum disease or tooth decay. They refer to a full set of replacement teeth that are used in the lower or upper maxillary regions.
At Olds Denture and Implant Centre we offer two different types of complete dentures. One is Standard Dentures and the other one is Complex Dentures. The Standard Dentures usually creates more of an artificial function when it comes to articulation and chewing. They are definitely a more cost effective option compared to Complex Dentures.
With Complex Dentures we capture your correct chewing function and jaw relationship. At The Olds Denture and Implant Centre we use a computerized jaw record called ‘Arcus Digma II’ this is a software which uses sensors to track your natural TMJ (Temporo Mandibular Joint) through precise movements of your jaw. We use these records to program a fully adjustable articulator to stimulate your natural jaw movements to enable your dentures to function within your natural chewing parameters.
We also use a much more natural aesthetic looking tooth, which helps in designing your appearance to suit your natural face form, by using composite teeth and proper aesthetics along with a computerized jaw function we can ensure that you are getting a denture that is custom fit to your specific needs.
