Denturists have been serving the public in Ontario since 1974, when legislation was enacted to govern and license our services. Denturists are licensed to fabricate, repair and adjust complete dentures, partial dentures and removable implant retained dentures. A complete denture is one which replaces all of the patient's natural teeth. A partial denture is one which replaces one or more teeth but not all of them. A removable implant retained denture is a denture which is supported by an abutment (made of titanium) which is integrated into the bony tissue.
The literal meaning of the word Denturist is "one who makes dentures". A Denturist's practice is devoted to the fabrication and repair of dentures. You can go directly to a Denturist for treatment without a referral from another health care practitioner. Denturists provide the most cost- and time-effective service. Unlike other health care practitioners who provide dentures, most Denturists' laboratory work is done on the premises and by the Denturist who sees the patient chairside. Denturists are uniquely qualified to provide quality, custom dentures. Denturists are skilled in the clinical and laboratory aspects of making dentures – they perform both jobs and have first-hand experience working with the patients.
