Country Dental’s Fergus dentists offer many options for people who need affordable dentures (false teeth).
No one welcomes having to get partial dentures or a full set of replacement teeth, but false teeth can be really important for some people. Dentures can help you chew, eat, and speak.
Existing teeth are kept in position, preventing drifting, which can lead to many other dental problems. Most importantly, affordable dentures can bring your beautiful smile back.
Here at Country Dental, we strive to give you the confidence to show off your teeth without any self-conscious feelings. We are also a denture clinic, offering the convenience of an in-house denturist.

The difference between complete dentures and partial false teeth is pretty simple.
- Complete dentures are used when all the teeth are absent.
- Partial dentures are used when a few natural teeth remain.
These types of affordable dentures are split into two options:
- Conventional Dentures
These are made after all remaining teeth are removed and the gum tissue is allowed to heal for a long period of time.
- Immediate Dentures
These dentures are for use the same day any teeth are removed. Immediate dentures require more adjustment though because gums and bones shrink while healing.
There are also two types of partial dentures:
- Removable Partial Dentures
A removable partial denture is made from replacement teeth bonded to a gum-coloured plastic base and a metal frame to help keep them together and connect them. Fixed partial dentures replace one or more missing teeth.
- Fixed Partial Dentures
Dental crowns are placed on each tooth surrounding the space and the replacement teeth are bonded to the crowns. This forms a bridge that is also bonded into place.
Dentures do add a lot of value to our dental patients providing peace of mind. Some insurance policies in Ontario might also cover some of the expenses related to affordable dentures. Our dental treatment coordinator will be happy to submit an insurance predetermination prior to your denture clinic visit.
We also offer direct billing to your insurance and dental financing options.

Below, you’ll also find answers to some common frequently asked questions about dentures.
How do dentures feel?
Dentures are properly fitted to each patient, which helps to minimize discomfort and make them feel normal more quickly. A minor irritation may be possible with new dentures until you get used to them. Contact your denture clinic if any soreness persists.
Will dentures affect my speech?
Wearing dentures can affect speech initially until you get used to them. Dentures tend to slightly change the anatomy of the mouth making some words difficult to pronounce. With a little practice, you will soon be able to speak normally again.
Can you tell if someone has dentures?
Denture technology has advanced a lot in recent years making it very difficult to tell if someone has dentures. Both full and partial dentures are designed to look and function like natural teeth and match the natural colour of your real teeth.
Are Dentures Safe?
Yes, dentures are considered relatively safe when they are properly fitted and cleaned regularly, and the wearer schedules regular dental appointments to have them checked by their denturist.
How much do dentures cost in Ontario?
In Ontario, the cost of dentures can be upwards of $1000 or more, depending upon the needs of the patient. Full dentures generally cost more than partial dentures.
How to clean dentures?
To clean dentures, soak them first, preferably overnight. After soaking, use only a non-abrasive denture cleaner with a soft-bristled brush. Proper cleaning and care will help to increase the lifespan of your false teeth.
Can cracked dentures be repaired?
Yes, in most cases a prosthodontist can successfully repair cracked dentures.
How long will it take to get used to dentures?
It usually takes about 3 to 4 weeks to get used to wearing dentures as the muscles and gums adjust and get comfortable with the new normal.
Can I sleep with partial dentures?
Yes, it is possible to sleep with partial dentures, but most dentists recommend removing them before going to bed. Your gums will thank you and it’s best to soak your dentures overnight so you can give them a good cleaning in the morning before putting them back in.
How long do dentures last?
When properly fitted, cleaned, and cared for, most dentures can last for as long as 5 – 10 years. New dentures will also be necessary as we age since our bodies, including our mouths, will change as we get older.
