For over half a century, Dental Implants have given people the experience of having their natural teeth back. If you want to eat any food you want, say goodbye to dentures, sore spots, adjustments and adhesives, this is the only way to go.
Dental Implants function much like natural teeth. With care, they will be with you for a lifetime. A recent study conducted by My Canadian Pharmacy identified that 75% of denture patients would have selected Dental Implants had they known about common denture problems.

The average man wears a size 10½ shoe. That shoe will fit about 12% of men and about 1% of women. Everyone else – 88% of men and 99% of women – will be extremely unhappy wearing those shoes no matter how much they try to get use to them. Dentures are even more personal than shoes.
A personalized denture utilizes sophisticated instrumentation to measure specific jaw movements and facial landmarks. Not only are we able to restore the natural contour of your lips and facial muscles; the denture fits better and makes it easier to chew food. Your dentures will also last longer and “feel sharp” for a longer period, as the teeth are arranged in a more personalized, balanced and precise manner. While the process involves a lot of additional labour for our lab staff, it only requires a few additional minutes for the patient.

The main difference between economy and personalized dentures is that personalized dentures are customized to the patient. An economy denture uses average values to arrange teeth. The average values used for conventional dentures are known as the Bonwill Triangle which was established in 1854 and is still used to this day. Knowing the distance and orientation of the teeth compared to the rest of the facial features is extremely beneficial when fabricating a new denture. Bonwills Triangle uses an average distance of 4 inches and 3.46 inches. If your jaw differs greatly from these average values, an economy denture may not function very well.

All dentures can be strengthened with FiberForce. Fiber Reinforced Composites (FRC) are used in everything from airplanes, cars, boats and bicycles to provide additional strength. FiberForce Denture Strengthener is a fiber reinforced mesh which significantly increases the strength of dentures. Fracture resistance tests have shown that FiberForce reinforced dentures are more than 3 times as strong as traditional dentures. Unlike metal reinforcements, FiberForce actually chemically bonds to the acrylic.
Adding FiberForce to your dentures involves a complicated 18 step process that requires special care and attention from our experienced lab staff, since the fiber reinforced mesh must be embedded in the denture without being visible. We highly recommend FiberForce as dentures generally last 5 years and the cost of repairs can add up quickly. Protect your investment with Fiberforce.
