If you’ve lost teeth due to an accident or disease, it’s important that you’re outfitted with artificial teeth that not only look natural, but fit and function without irritation or difficulty. Whether you’re in need of a new set or you’re beginning to experience complications with your pre-existing set, come to Calgary’s Sunridge Denture Clinic for service you can smile about. During your complementary denture consultation, we’ll conduct a thorough examination of your oral cavity. We’ll also examine your head and neck, soft tissue, bone density, current denture stability, as well as the structural integrity of your denture and bite. From there, our denturist may suggest:

Typically, you will drop your denture off in the morning and come pick it up shortly before closing.
