If you feel the implant option is not for you — whether you’re uncomfortable with surgery, concerned about the cost or simply accustomed to wearing complete dentures and happy with their function and aesthetics, we offer “conventional” full dentures in Ottawa.
The purpose of the Myoloc™ System is to help give the lower denture more stability. It consists of two wires, which sit below the tongue but above the floor of the mouth in what is called a neutral zone. The action of the tongue sitting on the wires helps keep the dentures down. While implants provide great stability, the Myoloc™ System offers additional stability, especially to those with significant resorption on the lower ridge without surgery.
For edentulous patients who choose not to have implants, we offer two different kinds of permanent complete dentures: standard and precision dentures. The main difference between the two involves the quality of the teeth. The teeth used for precision dentures are premium teeth, which are more durable than those of a standard denture.
As a rule, complete lower dentures tend to be more mobile upper dentures. However, they are more difficult to become accustomed to than complete upper dentures. To help make it easier to cope with complete lower dentures, we offer two products at an additional cost: soft lining and the Myoloc™ System by Winder Research.

As with any type of dental prosthetic, it may feel odd or foreign at first, but you’ll get used to your standard dentures in no time. It will take some time to get used to eating normally and speaking confidently with your dentures, but once you’ve become accustomed to them, you’ll barely distinguish the feeling from having your natural teeth. Not to mention you’ll get your bright and white smile back!
You can, but it’s not recommended. By taking out your dentures overnight, you give your gums a chance to rest and not get irritated. It’s also a healthy oral hygiene practice to take out your dentures to clean them thoroughly and clean your gums as well.
Just like any type of dentures and dental prosthetics, standard dentures will wear out over time and will eventually need to be either repaired or replaced. You can typically expect your standard dentures to last anywhere from 5 – 7 years. With proper oral hygiene and cleaning habits, you can maximize the longevity of your dentures.
If you’re missing some or all of your teeth, there are several denture solutions to consider:

Aside from the visual aesthetic appeal of getting dentures, one of the main reasons for getting dentures is to restore or improve the function of your jaw/teeth.
Although it may take some time to get used to speaking and eating confidently with your new dentures, once you’re used to your dentures, they’ll start to feel more and more comfortable and normal. Specifically for eating, start with smaller and softer foods before jumping right back into your regular diet.
