Permanent & Removable

Dentures Barrie

One of the most common questions that we hear at Molson Park Dental Office is whether permanent dentures or removable dentures are more appropriate for your teeth. It has always been our passion to help patients improve their oral health and quality of life by offering solutions customized to their unique needs, which is why we offer both options.

There are advantages to removable dentures as there are to permanent dentures. If you are unsure about what may be best for you, please read through the information below and feel free to give us a call for a no-obligation consultation.

The advantages of removable dentures

There are many reasons why we have patients choose removable dentures for themselves. To begin with, removable fixtures are less invasive that the more permanent option. They also do not require implants or mini-dental implants meaning that the procedure is less expensive.

The advantages of permanent dentures

Many people also consider permanent fixed dentures as the more long-term option as they serve to be a highly effective, implant-supported solution. Compared to removable dentures which replaces the visible portion of the tooth, fixed dentures replaces the tooth root and the visible structure as well. The advantages of permanent dentures is that it helps to reduce the possibility of bone loss and improves the facial structure.

Are permanent dentures or removable dentures right for me?

The ultimate purpose of dentures – be it permanent or removable, partial or full – is to replace missing teeth. What is right for you depends upon many factors. We would be happy to provide you with more thorough information customized for your specific oral situation in a free, hassle-free consultation. Depending upon the costs involved and what needs replacing, there are usually multiple options.


For example, you may not require full dentures and may only request partial dentures. As with permanent and removable fixture, we are able to provide you with both options. The full dentures are used after all of your teeth have been removed and are easy to set. Compare this to partial dentures, which rest on a metal framework that attaches to your natural teeth, sometimes offered as a removable alternative to bridges. As evidenced in this discussion, there are different options that are right for different situations.


It may take a few weeks for you to get used to your dentures but in this time, they will settle. Throughout the course of a lifetime, should you choose removable dentures, you may have to have them relined, remade, or re-based due to regular wear and tear and/or as your mouth naturally changes. For this reason, we always recommend a yearly check-up to ensure that there are no issues with your dentures. Also, we are always here if your dentures break, chip, crack or become loose. If any of this does occur, try not to attempt to adjust them yourself. Instead, give us a call and we can schedule an appointment.


If you’re looking for more information on permanent and removable dentures, as well as to find out what is right for you and your needs, contact us today and we would be happy to set up a consultation.

Our daughter was 5 weeks old when she had a frenectomy done at Molson Park Dental and we couldn’t be happier with the experience and end results. The entire team was so friendly and did such a wonderful job keeping me at ease during the procedure. Also, our daughter started nursing 100 times better immediately after the procedure was done. We can’t thank you enough for allowing us to continue our breastfeeding journey pain free and allowing our daughter the ability to nurse efficiently :)
