With our Denture lab on site, at Accurate Denture Clinic we provide a variety of denture related services including:
Denture over Implant
This procedure can be the ideal solution when all or several teeth are missing in the upper or lower jaw. Once the implants
are placed into your jaw, the denturist will temporarily fit your dentures over the implants until the bone and the implant
have integrated, this is known as the healing period. After the healing period the denturist will secure the denture through
final restoration. A removable type of denture over implant will not move or disengage from the dental implants with regular
movements like eating or speaking, it can also be removed for cleaning.
Some of the benefits of implants include the following:
- Stability during eating
- Increased preservation of bone
- Decreased gum tissue shrinkage
- Less food seepage under the denture
- Superior esthetics
- Social interactions accomplished with confidence
- A feeling close to that of your natural teeth
- Dietary nutritional benefits

Regardless if you decide to go with a standard or precision denture, either way we will
provide you with a customized denture designed to match your age, complexion and facial
features. During your consultation, the denturist would invite you to explain your expectation
and lifestyle concerns. At the same time the denturist will recommend solutions specific to
your new oral condition, functional needs and esthetic requests. This critical information
will help us to come up with the design of your personalized denture. Then the teeth are set
according to your needs and to produce a pleasing smile.
Fabricating Precision and Standard dentures
A precision denture is made to suit each person’s individual looks and needs by using extensive
measurements of your oral cavity. Details like the shape of your face, jaw line, lips, eyes, eyeglasses
and hair color are also taken into consideration. High quality teeth are also used to give you a high
chewing efficiency and a natural looking smile. A precision premium denture provides excellent function
and fit during everyday life activities, optimizing the ability to eat, speak or laugh confidently.
Standard dentures could also fit comfortably and function reasonably well. However, they are designed
using average measurements for patient’s who simply want a good quality denture. Although the choice
of materials such as tooth shapes and colors are not as extensive as our Precision denture option,
good quality teeth are used and it is still handcrafted and made to suit each person’s individual
looks and needs.
Complete and Partial Dentures
Complete dentures are worn by patients who are missing all of the teeth in the upper or lower jaw.
Complete dentures may rest directly on the gum that covers the bone or it can be fitted over implants.
During your initial consultation, the denturist will recommend solutions for you to consider and will
also inform you about the process involved in designing an accurate denture for you.
Partial dentures are worn by patients who are missing several teeth. A partial denture is designed according
to the patient’s oral structures and may be completely tooth supported or held by precision attachments.
Partial dentures can be made using a high quality metal cast-frame and acrylic or completely out of acrylic.
The denturist will help to determine the appropriate treatment plan and the appropriate partial for you.
When complete extractions of your remaining teeth become unavoidable, an immediate denture is a solution.
In most cases the denturist will initiate this procedure before your teeth are extracted. After your extraction
appointment, your immediate dentures are inserted avoiding the embarrassment of having no teeth during your
At the completion of your healing period, a permanent reline could be applied or a new denture may be fabricated
to ensure a comfortable and proper fit. Temporary liners, tissue conditioner and relines are post treatments
services that might be necessary in order to provide proper functioning dentures.
Relining is a normal part of denture maintenance and necessary to keep your denture fitting well.
A reline is recommended every two to three years or may be required in the following situations:
weight loss, bone loss in the upper or lower jaw, tooth loss, post immediate dentures, general
physiological aging, and sickness or disease.
The appearance of your dentures will not change. This procedure can be performed by chairside
which means the material used is cured while the patient is on the chair. Because of the nature
of material used it is not considered as accurate and long lasting as a laboratory processed reline.
A Laboratory processed reline is still considered one of the best types of reline available and very durable.
The acrylic is processed and cured in the laboratory in the same way the acrylic of the original denture is
cured. Laboratory processed reline will require you to be without your denture for most of the day.
This procedure is similar to relining. The difference being that a rebase replaces all of the acrylic
denture base material. The existing teeth remain in the exact same place. A rebase is often done when
the denture is broken or weakened due to multiple repairs and does not fit well. This procedure
generally takes 2 days rather than same day service you can expect with a reline.
Soft-liner is an option to consider if you have flat or nearly flat gum tissues, gums with thin tissues
over bony areas and chronically sore gum tissues. Soft-liner is a shock absorbing cushion when you are
chewing. Soft liners can be applied to new dentures, old dentures or for reline and rebase situations,
the average lifespan of soft-liners is two to four years depending on your physiology. This procedure
will increase comfort during chewing and daily wear. Just like all removable dentures, Soft-liners
require a regular check-up to make sure the fit is proper and to assess your oral health.
If your denture has been broken or damaged it is important that you see your denturist as soon as possible.
In most cases your denturist can restore a fractured or damaged denture close to its original condition.
Denture repairs can be done on a same day basis. You will be advised by your denturist of the condition
of your denture and the necessary steps needed in preventing further breakage.
Denture clean up
Like natural teeth, dentures must be cleaned regularly and thoroughly everyday to prevent permanent staining
and to remove food deposits and plaque. It’s best to use a brush designed for cleaning dentures. You can also
use a toothbrush with soft bristles. Avoid using brushes with hard bristles that can damage dentures.
A professional cleaning can be done to your denture at our clinic while you wait. Professional strength denture
cleaners are also available at our clinic.
