What Are Dentures?
Dentures are removable devices that serve as a replacement for teeth that have been lost due to gum disease, tooth decay, injury, or other causes. They can be designed to fit the entire mouth or a section of the mouth. Besides replacing natural teeth, a denture provides support to the facial structure.
The loss of teeth could cause the facial muscles to sag. This type of restorative dentistry can help revitalize the appearance and profile of your face along with renewed self-confidence. Our patients have reported a better quality of life and an increased sense of ease when eating and speaking after being fitted with these removable appliances.
What Are the Different Types of Removable Dentures?
Complete dentures, or conventional dentures, consist of a full set of custom-made teeth that replaces all of the natural teeth in the mouth. Complete dentures are removable and are typically designed for patients who have had all of their teeth removed, following the entire healing cycle of the gums.
Partial dentures are the perfect choice for individuals who only have a few missing teeth, either in the top or bottom areas of the mouth. They consist of replacement teeth attached to a metal or a gum-colored plastic base supported by a metal framework.
Immediate dentures are fixed within the mouth immediately after the extraction of the teeth. However, it is important for patients with immediate dentures to have them adjusted several times in the initial few months of use.
Overdentures are artificial teeth that are retained by dental implants. This type of denture improves digestion, reduces bone loss due to jaw bone stimulation, and provides adequate structure to the face.
How to Care for Dentures?
Taking care of your dentures is a crucial aspect of maintaining adequate oral health and the longevity of your dentures. Maintenance of the dentures is required to prevent bacterial growth as well as permanent staining. As dentures are removable, caring for dentures can be easier than caring for natural teeth. Clean the dentures efficiently with a soft-bristle toothbrush to check the growth of bacteria. Rinse the dentures following each meal to remove any stuck food particles.
