+What’s a denturist?
Denturists are specialized dental-care professional who work exclusively with denture patients. The Denture Centre currently employs five denturists who have over 50 years combined experience! No referrals are necessary to see one of our denturists, however it's best to call ahead to schedule your free consultation.
+What education is necessary to become a denturist?
Denturists spend up to three years in school at Ontario colleges, studying the technical aspects of denture construction as well as the clinical challenge of fitting dentures to individual mouths.
+What is a dentist?
Dentists are doctors of dental surgery, meaning that they are medical doctors that deal specifically with the mouth and area structures.
+What’s difference between a denturist and a dentist?
Both dentists and denturists are able to work clinically with patients fitting dentures in the mouth. However, because dentists are medical doctors, they are much more trained in diagnosing and treating oral conditions. Denturists are trained to be highly skilled with both the technical and clinical aspect of denture fabrication.
+Can dentists and denturists work together?
Yes! This is frequently done when having teeth pulled at a dental office and getting dentures made at a denture clinic. In this situation it’s best to come for your free consultation at the nearest Denture Centre location before proceeding with any extractions. This allows us to communicate effectively with the dentist who will be pulling the teeth, helping to ensure an easier transition from your own teeth to a denture.
