New technology brings valuable peace of mind for dentures wearers

Everyone who wears dentures knows how important it is that they fit well. “When we’ve made a great denture for someone, and they’re beaming from ear to ear, the last thing any of us wants is for that denture to be lost or accidentally damaged. The unfortunate truth is, it happens all the time,” says registered denturist Jeremy den Ouden, of Langley’s Renew Denture Clinic.

Typically when a patient experiences a loss of dentures for any reason, they must restart the entire process of appointments and paying the cost of having new dentures fabricated from scratch. This process can be lengthy and costly – especially when it’s repeated unnecessarily.

“The best part is, patients can call me and let me know they need a new denture made, and depending on the case, I can often tell them to come pick it up the next day finished and ready to go. No appointments or hassle necessary, and they will have an exact replica of their original denture,” says Jeremy.

This is made possible by the innovative digital scanning technology recently introduced to Langley at Renew Denture Clinic. Jeremy and his team are able to scan and save digital copies of any removable denture appliance, even if it was originally made at a different clinic.

“You don’t even have to be a patient of Renew Denture Clinic to have your denture scanned. We want this technology to be available to all Langley residents, so they can feel confident and secure knowing their dentures are safe and easily replaceable when the unexpected happens,” says Jeremy.

Here’s how it works: A scanner arm rotates around the denture and captures every unique feature to create a detailed digital copy of the exact shape of the denture, Jeremy explains. “In just three minutes, we have a computerized copy of the patient’s denture – a digital replica that allows us to easily recreate the denture if anything ever happens to it.”

What does it mean for patients? Having the digital information at hand means there’s no need to repeat those initial steps to create the ideal denture. “If you need a new denture, for whatever reason, we can simply access that scan and start re-creating it,” Jeremy says.
