Yukon Dentistry offers Dentures in Whitehorse

Yukon Dentistry is a fully-operational dental clinic with an adjoining dental laboratory. As such, our team crafts state-of-the-art dentures using precision digital design and quality materials for dentures you’ll love wearing.

Types of Dentures

Dentures are versatile oral appliances. There are many different types to choose from, but our team will consider both your oral health and aesthetic goals when offering dentures recommendations.

Conventional Dentures

Also known as traditional dentures, conventional dentures are
restorative appliances that replace a full arch of missing teeth.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures can replace
several missing teeth in a row or sporadically missing teeth.

Implant-supported Dentures

Implant-supported dentures require oral surgery, but they are largely considered the most dependable tooth-replacement option on the market. Implant-supported dentures are a suitable option for patients with mixed or total tooth loss.

Immediate Dentures

Immediate dentures are temporary appliances that patients can use while they are waiting for their final dentures.

Dentures Cost

At Yukon Dentistry, we follow the Yukon Dental Association Fee Guide of 2021:

  • Partial dentures: 1,800$
  • Full dentures: 1,800$
  • Immediate dentures: 1,900$

If you have dental insurance, we can bill your insurance company directly. Patients are only responsible for what their insurance does not cover.

Dentures Candidacy

In general, most patients with extensive tooth loss are good candidates for dentures. However, our Yukon Dentistry team is looking for:

  • Healthy gums
  • Sufficient jaw bone density to support your appliance
  • Cavity-free and healthy remaining teeth

Good candidates should also be committed to caring for their dentures and oral health on a daily basis. Additionally, candidates should consider the added cost of dentures upkeep, like adhesives and cleansers.

The Dentures Process

At Yukon Dentistry, it is our pleasure to offer free dentures consultations for new and existing patients. During your consultation, our skilled team will help you determine which restorative appliance is best for your oral health, appearance, and budget.

Next, we will take impressions of your mouth to send to our dental lab. Our dental lab will use your oral impressions, cutting-edge technology, and high-grade materials to fabricate your personalized dentures.

After our dental lab completes your custom-made dentures, we’ll invite you to come back to our clinic for a fitting. At this appointment, our team will make sure your dentures feel comfortable and meet your expectations.

Once you and our dental team are happy with your dentures, you are free to take your new appliance home. If your dentures stop fitting properly or get damaged, then let us know. We can adjust and repair dentures so you can keep smiling, eating, and speaking with confidence.

Dentures Lifespan

Most patients can expect to enjoy their dentures for 5 to 10 years. However, properly caring for your dentures could extend the life of your appliance for years.

Caring for Your Dentures

Caring for removable dentures is crucial for your oral health. Proper daily care includes:

  • Rinsing dentures after eating to remove food particles
  • Brushing dentures with a non-abrasive toothpaste and soft-bristled brush at least once a day
  • Storing dentures in water or a dentist-approved denture cleanser
    overnight

You should also schedule regular dental checkups and cleanings to keep you, your mouth, and your dentures functioning properly.
