Dentures are one of the best teeth replacement options when you are missing all or some of your teeth. A denture is a dental appliance that replaces your missing teeth and the surrounding tissue and resembles your natural teeth.
Dentures are of 2 types - complete and partial dentures. A complete denture is used when all your teeth are missing while a partial denture is used when some of your teeth are missing. Apart from filling the spaces created by lost teeth, a partial denture also prevents teeth shifting.
A denture can be used to:
The procedure of getting dentures can be "conventional" or "immediate". In a conventional process, the teeth are removed, and the gum tissues are allowed to heal which usually takes 4-6 weeks and you are without teeth for that period of time until you get your dentures. In an immediate process, dentures are created in advance so that they are placed just after the teeth are removed. Adjustments are made once the tissues are healed.
Accurate impressions are required to create custom dentures. It takes several "try-in" appointments over several weeks to ensure a proper fit and shape. You will experience soreness, increased saliva flow and some chewing and speech difficulty. However, all these problems will disappear once your tissues and muscles get adjusted to the new dentures.
We will give you proper care instructions to look after your new dentures. Proper cleaning of dentures, maintaining good oral hygiene, and visiting your dentist on a regular basis help in increasing the life of your dentures.
