Precision
High-quality precision dentures that meet your expectations

Installation Procedures

Precision dentures mean above all the use of precise equipment and techniques in their design. A universal transfer bow system is used to gather a great deal of information on your cranium and temporomandibular joint and can also transfer this data to a precision articulator. We thus have access, from a laboratory, to a simulation of your denture’s movements. All of this personal data will guide the denturist in the fabrication of your dentures. Because you are purchasing dentures that are custom-made, you will find that they are more stable and efficient.

Teeth

Each natural-looking tooth used to make precision dentures is the perfect combination of “Handmade in Germany” and high technology: manually stratified in several layers, it is continuously the finest model when it comes to tint, shape and function. As proven by abrasion testing: better teeth wear out less rapidly and chew more efficiently.

Semi-Precision
Installation Procedures
Coordinated movements

A semi-precision articulator will be used to position teeth according to the articulation of a regular cranium. As jaw’s alignment and their degree of angulations are not adjustable, it is impossible to transfer a patient’s specific data like we can with a precision articulator. Dentures will nonetheless be fabricated to allow harmonious chewing on both sides and to achieve good stability, thanks to the movements made possible with this small but well-performing articulator.

Teeth

Quality teeth are always selected based on your morphology and esthetic requirements. Two essential qualities of good molars are their resistance to wear and their shape, which is designed to favor food grinding. To better suit your needs, teeth will be selected based on your gums, age and chewing strength.

Hygienic partial denture with no palate

Finally, a partial denture you forget you’re even wearing!

Before you get seduced, verify that the hygienic bar suits you. We can only create this true little dental jewelry in 40% of cases!

The PRA bar was created in the Montreal dental laboratory “Laboratoire Dentaire MALO”. Still today, few technicians attempt this very complicated fabrication. The process is simple but long and hard: use teeth’s inside shape to firmly maintain the denture in its place with no bearing on the palate or gum. Since this denture keeps the palate completely clear, you will rediscover all taste sensations, textures and food’s temperature. The gum regains its natural stimulation, all for its greater wellbeing!

PRECISION-type implantation is performed to give patients perfect control while chewing.

Note: Due to the complexity of the structure, its fabrication requires more time.

Partial acrylic denture

Used most often as transition prosthesis, the acrylic partial denture is above all an economic decision.

As acrylic is more fragile than metal, it needs to be thicker and cover a larger portion of the palate. This type of denture is not recommended for lower partials.

Partial denture with precision attachments without clasps

For an upper or lower partial that holds better without visible clasps. Your dentist adds unobtrusive attachments to in-mouth crowns, onto which partials can firmly grip to.

Partial dentures – Options

Less visible unobtrusive clasps
For a less visible partial denture, replace metallic clasps with pink, white or clear FRS clasps. Consult your denturist to find out if this is possible for you.
Precision attachments without clasps
For an upper or lower partial that holds better without visible clasps. Your dentist adds unobtrusive attachments to in-mouth crowns, onto which partials can firmly grip to.
An even thinner denture
For patients allergic to metals or those who simply want a lighter and thinner metallic structure that provides exceptional sturdiness: the metallic frame is made of TITANIUM. As a noble and biocompatible metal, TITANIUM is hard to manipulate but provides surprising results.
Extra durability
For patients who exhibit problematic occlusion or bruxism. A solution for the latter may be the replacement of the rearmost molars with a metallic occlusion. This option applies to patients who often break their lower dentures because of their thinness.
