Dentures in Mississauga, ON
Dr. Jeff Levman’s dental practice is dedicated to restoring and enhancing the natural beauty of your smile. Our goal is to use conservative procedures, up-to-date technology, and high-quality materials to give our patients beautiful, long-lasting smiles, and that includes dentures as an option for your smile makeover.
There are many choices for tooth replacement that our Mississauga dentist offers, such as dental implants and dental bridges, but dentures in Mississauga, ON, are an option that should also be considered as natural-looking artificial replacements for your teeth.
Types of Dentures
When you visit us for your consultation in tooth replacement, we’ll discuss all options with you, including the three types of dentures that can be used for your smile restoration: partial dentures, complete dentures, and overdentures.
Partial dentures can be used when you have nearby teeth that can support the clasps that are used in the placement of the prosthetic teeth. Partial dentures are sometimes called removable partial denture prostheses. They are easily removed at night for cleaning.
Complete dentures (sometimes called full dentures) are used for total tooth replacement when all of your natural teeth are missing. They, too, are removable at night for cleaning, but they are held in place during the day with suction as opposed to the clasps used in partial dentures.
Within complete dentures, there are two sub-types: immediate dentures and conventional dentures. Immediate dentures can be made before your teeth are extracted, and a model can be made of their natural placement, whereas conventional dentures are made after your teeth have been lost or extracted, and your gum and jaw tissue has healed.
Another choice in types of dentures includes over-dentures. This option is ideal for anyone wanting to reduce the shrinkage of their jawbone since dental implants are used. Also, because of the added stability provided by the implant, patients find them durable and comfortable to wear.
Our dental care team is comprised of highly-trained and skilled clinicians who remain committed to providing the latest products and technology available in modern dentistry. When you visit us for your consultation for dentures in Mississauga, ON, you’ll receive information on every type of tooth replacement option available so you can make the best choice for your comfort and lifestyle.

Dentures Care and Maintenance
Cleaning of your dentures is not much different than the oral care that’s recommended for natural teeth. You’ll need to clean them every day to control tartar build-up and staining, as well as control bad breath and prevent future gum problems such as gingivitis.
Part of our complete dental care includes providing each patient with best practices for use at home based on the type of dentures used. Plus, our convenient practice hours that include Saturday and early evening appointment times mean that we’re here to answer your questions and make adjustments to your dentures when it’s most convenient for you!
