Denturists are classified as health-care providers. They provide services that improve the health and well-being of their patients. There are many services that a Denturist provides. Among them are:
Partial dentures are necessary when one or more of your natural teeth are missing in the upper or lower arch. Not only does a partial denture fill in the spaces created by missing teeth, it helps to prevent other teeth from shifting.
Dental implants are becoming a popular choice for denture wearers. However, not everyone is a candidate for implants. Consult your Manitoba Denturist for advice.
Servicing your existing dentures.
Athletic mouth guards delivered by your Denturist are custom made to maximise protection. They provide protection to the lips, teeth and cheeks and can also reduce the forces that contribute to concussions and jaw fractures.
A custom fit night guard is worn on the upper or lower teeth decreasing the grinding of the teeth and clenching of the jaw, preventing chipped and/or broken teeth. The wearing of night guard will help in the reduction of TMD problems.
Anti-snoring devices, worn when sleeping, are to be used by patients who have been diagnosed having snoring problems or apnea.
Bleaching trays are removable thin personalized teeth whiting trays used by patients who would like to whiten their teeth. By placing a small amount of whitening gel in the tray and inserting the tray in to their mouth for specified period of time the teeth will become whitened. The manufacturers of the gel provide a guide to the length of time the gel is to remain in the mouth.
For the convenience of our patients many Denturists offer direct billing to private insurance companies such as Great West Life, Blue Cross, Manulife, Sunlife, etc. Some clinics will also accept public dental plans such as Veterans Affairs, Family Services and NIHB.
