Today’s modern dentures are designed to resemble your natural teeth and gums as closely as possible. They’re also made from composite materials that are comfortable, durable, and secure. We provide denture fabrication, repair, and relining services.</p> <h2>Types of dentures</h2> <p>There are many denture designs and options available to suit your situation. </p> <p>Full, or complete, dentures are used when a patient has lost an entire arch of teeth. Partial dentures replace single or multiple missing teeth. Partials have a metal framework for strength and to make them more streamlined. Immediate dentures are full dentures that are fabricated prior to the removal of teeth so they are placed right after surgery. All denture styles are designed to restore the appearance of your smile while fitting comfortably.</p> <p>Full dentures are held in place by a variety of methods. Most rely on natural suction and are designed to fit the contours of your mouth for a secure fit. Partial dentures can be secured to your other teeth with clips or precision attachments for “invisible” retention. Finally, implant-supported dentures are secured to dental implants that are placed in your jaw bone. Implant-supported dentures are very secure as they are clipped or locked onto attachments which are secured in place by dental implants. When complete dentures are secured by dental implants, they do not cover the palate. This improves your ability to taste and enjoy food. Any group of teeth that you are unable to remove yourself is called a bridge.</p> <h2>Emergency repair</h2> <p>We provide emergency repair services for damaged dentures.

Signs that you may be grinding your teeth include your teeth getting flatter or shorter, chipping, and cracking. Many people are “silent bruxers” who may have no symptoms except a progressive flattening of their teeth. Over time, bruxism can cause serious damage to your teeth such as loosening, fracturing, gum recession, and increased sensitivity.</p> <p>To diagnose and treat bruxism, we begin with a comprehensive examination. Treatment usually consists of a bruxism appliance that you wear while you sleep. The appliance keeps your jaws in place overnight, preventing you from grinding and clenching your teeth.</p> <p>Contact us today to make an appointment if you suspect you may be grinding your teeth.</p> </div> Sun, 21 Jun 2020 14:51:22 +0000 admin 56 at https://www.niagaraprosthodontics.ca Sleep Appliances https://www.niagaraprosthodontics.ca/services/sleep-appliances <span>Sleep Appliances</span> <span><span lang="" about="/user/1" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">admin</span></span> <span>Wed, 10/23/2019 - 13:30</span> <div><div class="row"> <div class="col-12"> <h1 class="display-4 mb-2"></h1> <p class="display-5 mb-2">Sleep disorders can steal your precious rest and leave you feeling tired in the morning. They can also affect the quality of your day to day life and put you at risk of complications to your health. You may be referred to our office by your physician, a certified sleep therapist, or other medical professional to come for sleep screening.</p> <h2>How we diagnose sleep disorders</h2> <p>Diagnosis of sleep disorders involves a thorough examination of your mouth, face, neck, and sleeping habits. We will also provide you with a take-home sleep test (Level 3 PSG) to screen you for conditions such as snoring, apnea, and bruxism. The test contains medical and dental information that is shared with your family physician or therapist to help coordinate your treatment.</p> <h2>Treatment</h2> <p>Treatment options for sleep disorders depend on the severity of the condition. A custom oral appliance can address bruxism and apnea. In more severe cases, you may require a CPAP machine in addition to the appliance. Patients who are unable to use CPAP machines may also find that using an oral appliance helps them tolerate a CPAP.</p> <p>We also work closely with physicians and sleep specialists to diagnose and treat sleep disorders, and we may refer you to a specialist (or they may refer you to us) for specialized treatment.</p> <p>Get a good night's sleep.

The treatment depends on the cause but is typically performed with a customized oral appliance you wear while you sleep. Other treatments can include a daytime oral appliance, palliative self care, or referrals to other medical practitioners such as a physiotherapist. In some cases, Botox injections by a neurologist can also help.
