Whatever the cause of your tooth loss, tooth replacement solutions such as dentures are considered by Canadian public to best done at a denture practice for a number of reasons. Denturists are highly trained professionals licensed in designing, constructing, repairing, fitting and adjusting dentures. Having studied for multiple years in an accredited Canadian Institutions, denturists focus on both clinical and laboratory skills, allowing them to be fully immersed in the denture process from start to finish. Because their training is focused specifically on dentures, they work solely with denture patients and have the specific expertise and knowledge to handcraft each denture to suit patient’s unique situation.
Dentists vs. Denturists
Dentists are health care practitioners who work with a variety of patients and work on a large range of dental and oral issues. When working with dentures, dentists do not usually make the dentures themselves. They or even their office staff take dental impressions and send them to a dental lab where a technician makes the set of dentures without ever meeting the patient. This process involves outsourcing the actual denture work to a third party and like in any real world situations there are often issues caused by communication errors, non-efficiency, and even quality of craftsmanship.
Denturists, on the other hand, provide denture services directly to the patient in their practice. They are formally trained and licensed with the experience and education to provide patients with customized and durable denture solutions. To do this, denturists perform an oral examination and evaluation of the patient’s mouth, teeth, and gums. They take very accurate dental impressions with custom trays, fabricated to cater to your denture needs, that are used to create custom dentures that have unique fit for each patient. After the denture is constructed, they ensure it fits the patient’s mouth and make adjustment as needed. They are also qualified to perform services such as repair, realignment, and adjustments directly in their clinic. Because denturists have the knowledge, equipment, and materials right in their clinic to develop dentures from start to finish, visiting a denture practice has become an obvious choice for Canadians seeking removable tooth replacement solutions.
