*** IMPORTANT PUBLIC NOTICE ***   TEMPORARILY CLOSED DUE TO COVID-19 PANDEMIC

Back to work

To our valued patients:

 

Life has been anything but normal this spring and we sincerely hope you and your family are in good health. We are happy to inform you that we are now able to once again provide dental care for you and your family starting in August. The Ministry of Health has lifted the restrictions placed back in March. While many things have changed since then, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your health and safety. 

 

Our office has always followed strict infection control standards and in order to keep us all protected during this pandemic and in the future, we have updated our protocols. When we see you at your next appointment, things will be a little different. 

 

•        We will ask some screening questions before your appointment and you’ll be asked those same questions again                   when you’re in the office. 

 

•        You may be asked to wait outside our office or in your car and call us when you arrive and then wait for a call back to           let you know when you can enter the office. 

 

•        We have hand sanitizer that we will ask you to use when you enter the clinic. There are more dispensers around the           office for you to use as needed.

 

•        Our waiting room will no longer offer magazines or children’s toys since those items are difficult to fully disinfect. 

 

•        Appointments will be spaced out to allow for physical distancing between patients. That might mean less flexibility               for scheduling your appointment, but it will also reduce the number of patients in the reception area at any one                   time. 

 

•        You may be surprised that we’re wearing more protective gear – such as masks, face shields, gowns – than we                       normally do during your visit. 

 

Rest assured, all these procedures are designed to create the safest environment for you, other patients and our team.

 

We look forward to seeing you again. If you have any questions, please let us know. To make an appointment, call our office at 705-855-3200 or email us at drwitzu@gmail.com  

 

Thank you for patience and loyalty throughout this ordeal. We value your trust and look forward to welcoming you back! 

 

Sincerely, 

 

Dr. Witzu and staff

Providing Complete & Partial Dentures in Sudbury

Dentures are removable dental appliances that help replace and replicate missing teeth, as well as the surrounding tissues. At Chelmsford Family Dentistry, we craft custom dentures to perfectly recreate your natural teeth and greatly enhance your smile. Contact us if you are looking for complete or partial dentures in Sudbury.


Complete or Partial Dentures — Which to Choose?

All depending on your needs, there are two types of dentures for you to consider:


Complete Dentures

Complete dentures are perfect for those with all of their natural teeth missing. A complete denture can either be placed immediately, or through the conventional method of waiting for the gums to heal following tooth extractions. Conventional dentures typically require a four- to six-week waiting period in which you will go without any type of teeth. If having teeth is essential to maintaining your appearance, we can create immediate dentures in advance and then immediately place them once your remaining teeth have been removed. Several weeks later, after the tissue has healed, we will perform adjustments.


Partial Dentures

If you still have several natural teeth remaining, they can be used as posts to help stabilize a removable partial denture. Partial dentures are ideal for patients who have lost only several teeth in an arch and are looking to maintain the position of their existing teeth.


As very durable appliances, your dentures should last many years, although they may need to be remade, repaired or readjusted as a result of normal wear and tear.


Beyond Appearances

While both complete and partial dentures can help to improve your appearance, they also help with your ability to chew, speak and digest foods.


What Goes into Getting Dentures?

The process of getting dentures requires several appointments, usually over a number of weeks. Highly accurate impressions (moulds) and measurements are taken and used to create your custom denture. Several “try-in” appointments may be necessary to ensure proper shape, colour and fit. At the final appointment, your dentist will precisely adjust and place the completed denture, ensuring a natural and comfortable fit.


It is normal to experience increased saliva flow, some soreness and possible speech and chewing difficulty at first. However, this will subside as your muscles and tissues get used to the new dentures.


You will be given after-care instructions for your new dentures. Proper cleaning of your new dental appliance, good oral hygiene and regular dental visits will be a great help in extending the life of your dentures.
