Dentures and Partial Dentures
Dentures and partial dentures are artificial teeth used to fill in the spaces created by missing teeth. They can be made by different materials, often hardened porcelain and acrylic resin as well as cast metal in some instances. They are made to look as natural as possible. Partial dentures replace missing teeth and anchor onto existing teeth for support. Dentures can be created when all of the teeth are missing. Aside from aesthetic appearance, dentures and partial dentures will help a patient with chewing, normal speech, facial muscle support, in the case of partials, help avoid the shifting of surrounding teeth. Main Street Dental Centre has an on- site dental laboratory to fabricate and custom fit dentures and partials. Patients with dentures or partial dentures can have them made or repaired here with our onsite dental laboratory. Often, depending on the repair, it can even be done in a couple of hours.
Bruxing is the unintentional grinding together of your teeth. Most people do not even know that they are doing it because they are sleeping or concentrating on some activity. Main Street Dental Centre offers the fabrication of custom bite planes to prevent the constant grinding and damage to occlusal tooth structures.
Anyone who participates in a sport that carries a significant risk of injury should wear a mouth protector. This includes a wide range of sports like football, hockey, basketball, baseball, gymnastics, and volleyball. Mouth protectors, which typically cover the upper teeth, can cushion a blow to the face, minimizing the risk of broken teeth and injuries to the soft tissues of the mouth. If you wear braces or another fixed dental appliance on your lower jaw, your dentist may suggest a mouth protector for these teeth as well.
