Implant supported dentures can be a great way to eat again for people who have been struggling with edentulism (lack of teeth).
Your Denture Solution in Airdrie
Dentures are an affordable option to restore your smile. Not only are they more economical, dentures may also a better option for some medical conditions such as uncontrolled diabetes or habits such as smoking.
Dr. Parsa will work with you to understand your current health and dental situation, and discuss all available options to restore missing teeth. Other options may include dental implants, a bridge , leaving the space as is, or a combination of treatments such as using implants to increase the retention of a denture. On a big screen, you’ll see a picture of your mouth and how the various options would work with your current teeth.
Why Choose Dentures?
If nearby teeth are not strong enough to hold a bridge or if multiple teeth are missing, dentures may be your preferred option. There are many benefits to dentures:
We follow the latest and lowest fee guide released by the Alberta Dental Association in 2018 to make Dentistry more affordable for our patients.
Denture technology has improved over the last number of years, and current options are more stable, making it easier to chew and speak than older versions. That being said, dentures are not for everyone. Dentures are not always comfortable and some people don’t like that they come out. There is also the risk of losing or breaking them.
Types of Dentures
Bridges are often a great option because they are permanent, and you don’t have to worry about taking them out at night or losing them. To take care of your bridge, you’ll need to brush and floss daily to keep them free from plaque and tartar, just like the rest of your teeth.
While dental bridges have many benefits, they might not be an option if you don’t have enough healthy teeth to stabilize a bridge or if you are under budgetary constraints. A consultation with Dr. Prasa will help you make an informed choice about what option works best for you.
Dr. Parsa guarantees her crown and bridge work for 5 years. If your crown or bridge requires replacement due to a mechanical failure or a bubble in the porcelain, Dr. Parsa will stand by her work. This does not include failure due to external trauma or recurrent decay around the work.
Dental bridges are sometimes a more expensive option, and Yankee Valley Dental will consider your financial situation, work with your insurance companies and offers payment plan to make treatments more affordable.
Implant supported dentures are the best option if you don’t have enough natural teeth and need to further stabilize the denture. Placing two to four implants on the bottom jaw can help stability those ‘rocking’ dentures, and improve their fit considerably.
Upper and lower full dentures are the conventional type of dentures for patients who require all their teeth to be removed (or already have them removed). They are made out of strong acrylic material.
Flipper dentures are used when you are only missing a few teeth. These dentures are made out of acrylic and best used for short-term purposes.
Dr. Parsa is familiar with all types of the dental implant supported dentures and can discuss each type in detail with you, including the pros and cons of each. Whichever you choose, the process involves an impression of your teeth in order to ensure the denture looks and fits well with your other teeth.
Dentures might be the best solution for your smile. Book a consultation at Yankee Valley Dental to explore denture options in Airdrie.

Testimonial of Our Service
I saw Dr. Parsa to get my wisdom teeth removed when she was working in Calgary. I had been told by another general dentist that I have to see the specialist to get them out but put it off because it was hundreds of dollars just for the consultation. I was in soooo much pain when I saw Dr. Parsa and was so relieved when she was able to take them out for me. It saved me a lot of money since my insurance covered her fees. I also had sedation since I was really nervous about the procedure and don’t think I could have gone through it without. So grateful that she was able to help me out. I highly recommended Dr. Parsa anyone looking for a dentist!
