October Is Denturist Awareness Month
October is Denturist Awareness month.
At our clinic in Ottawa, we know that replacing your original teeth with dentures is about more than simply trusting someone with your smile.
We specialize in the design, fabrication, installation and ongoing care of different types of dentures.
Denturist vs Dentist: What is the Difference?
Unlike dentists, who can treat a great array of dental issues, denturists are specialized dental care providers.
Whatever your denture-related needs are, your friendly Ottawa denturist, Yevgeniy, has you covered.
Ottawa South Denture Clinic offers a variety of dentures, from complete dentures and partial dentures to implant dentures and much more.

What Is the 1st Appointment with Your Denturist Like?
We look forward to meeting you for the first time at Ottawa South Denture Clinic.
When you get here, our friendly and caring staff will greet you upon arrival. These days, of course, we are taking great care with enhanced COVID-19 measures, so you may see some differences.
If you are a new patient, we ask you to arrive no more than 5 minutes before your appointment check with staff when booking appointment. You will be required to complete new client intake forms – due to COVID-19 measures we kindly ask you to complete the paperwork ahead of time. You can find the necessary forms by following the links below.
Upon arrival to our clinic, you will be seen by our denturist, Yevgeniy, who will go through your oral health condition and medical history.
This is what you can expect from your denturist’s oral assessment:
- Gum and remaining teeth examination
- Bite and dentures check
- Denture inspection
- Denture cleaning
Depending on the outcome, your Ottawa denturist will recommend the course of dentures that suits you best.
Needless to say, we will happily answer any and all of your questions about dentures and the denture process. We believe that everybody should be aware of their oral condition and fully understand the suggested denture option(s) presented.
At Ottawa South Denture Clinic we allow plenty of time with every client to ensure they receive the best possible service.
How Long Do Dentures Last?
The average lifespan of a denture is generally between 5 and 10 years.
Like real teeth, dentures will wear and stain over. On top of that, your mouth and gums will change over time.
That being said, your dentures might need adjustments, relines (re-fitting), or even replacement. To prevent unexpected surprises, you should visit your denturist at the Ottawa South Denture Clinic at least once a year. Regular check-ups will help maximize the life of your appliances.
Dentures: Investing in Oral Health
Dentures are an investment in health and overall wellbeing.
At our denture clinic in Ottawa, we want to make sure you get the best treatment you need and deserve.
For this purpose, we offer a denture financing program. Many of our clients can take advantage of our convenient monthly payments.
In addition, we offer electronic billing to most insurance companies, and we are happy to see patients who are part of NIHB, Veteran Affairs, Ontario Seniors Dental Program, ODSP, Essential Health and Ontario Works. Before you receive any treatment, we will get in touch with your insurance provider to ensure that you are aware of how much coverage you will be getting.
