About Calgary Denturists and their profession
Denturists professional designation is 'DD' which stands for Diploma in Denturism.
Denturists are licensed to fabricate, adjust and repair complete dentures, partial dentures
and removable implant retained dentures, also commonly called dentures over implants or
'overdentures on implants'.
A partial denture replaces one or more teeth but not all of them, whereas a complete denture
replaces all of the patient's natural teeth. A removable implant retained denture is supported
by an abutment (made of titanium) which is integrated into the bony tissue.
In Alberta, Denturists are the main provider to seniors for complete and partial denture
treatments; however, they provide services to people of all ages including some children.
Denturists are defined as dental health care professionals who provide denture care directly
to the public. Calgary Denturists are independent self-regulated professionals who work with
other Oral Health Care providers, including Dentists, Oral Surgeons, Dental Technicians and
Dental Hygienists to provide the best denture care and service for their patients.
An important fact to note is that contrary to popular belief, you can go directly to a Denturist
for treatment without a referral from another Health/Dental Care practitioner.
Denturists provide the most cost and time effective service because unlike other Dental Care
practitioners who provide dentures, most Denturists' laboratory work is done in-house on the
premises and by the Denturist, trained in both intraoral procedures (clinic procedures) and the
associated laboratory procedures for the required treatments.
Did you know that Denturists study the clinical and technical aspects of removable dentures
and general health longer than any other Oral Health-Care practitioner? Therefore, Travis
Dalquist's expertise and professionalism make him the best possible choice to help you derive
the maximum benefit from the most advanced denture technology.
If you do not have a regular Dentist or need a referral to an Oral Surgeon, your Denturist will
be happy to refer you to the appropriate practitioner. Travis works with an excellent team of
twenty-four (24) referring Dentists and Oral Surgeons to provide his patients with the best
restorative, cosmetic, implant and denture options available today.
Some people wonder about why go to a Denturist and what's so different about going to
a Denturist verses other dental professionals. Calgary Denturists are experts in design,
construction, insertion and adjustment of removable dentures as well as overdentures on
implants. Their expertise, meticulousness and professionalism make them your best option.
They listen to your needs and they personally handle every step in the construction of your
denture: from the first impression to the last adjustment. Additionally, your Denturist is the
ideal person to instruct you in the daily maintenance of your denture. He can also tell you
how often your denture should be adjusted in order to ensure the comfort, effectiveness
and aesthetic appearance that you expect.
