At Oakridge Denture & Implant Centre we provide:
A denture is a denture, is a denture; well not really. Some businesses advertise all kinds of dentures; “basic”, “economy”, “premium”, “cosmetic” and even “boutique”. These names are misleading and may give a person a false sense of what they will be getting, and are often done to try to entice people to come to the business. In Alberta the Regulatory Body states that there are two basic denture types; Standard or Complex, and within those types, are some variations such as surgical and implant dentures.
There are some techniques which are recognized that fit into the denture types, such as the Ivoclar BPS® Denture System.
Are you tired of your lower denture moving while your eating and speaking? Tired of not being able to eat the foods you want? Thought about dental implants but don’t think you can afford them?
Although standard dental implant treatment can be costly depending on what is done and your position on costs, mini-implants provide a more economical solution with excellent results.
Historically, mini-implants were considered to be a temporary solution and had limited systems to retain a denture. Now, mini-implants are considered to be a long-term solution and are available with two excellent systems to retain your denture; either the Locator® Overdenture Implant System or the Straumann Mini-implant Optiloc® System.
