There are several reasons you could need dentures, the most obvious reason being if you are missing teeth. Here are some points that you need dentures now.
Dentures are artificial teeth and gums which replace the lost natural teeth in a patient.
Dentures are custom made for every patient by the dentist to give a good fit and matching the natural tooth colour of the surrounding teeth.
Dentures can be complete or partial, meaning a denture can either replace all the missing teeth on either the upper or lower jaw, or just a few teeth that may be missing.
There are two types of dentures:-
These dentures are given to those who have lost their entire set of teeth, either on the upper jaw or the lower jaw or in both.
More than the aesthetics these patients are generally pleased on having restored their chewing ability thanks to these dentures.
These dentures are only prepared after the removal of all the teeth and once the healing of the gum tissue is complete.
Impressions, measurements, bite, and trials are taken by the dentist and the denture is prepared in the dental laboratory. This may take multiple sittings before the final complete denture is delivered.
These types of dentures are given when a few teeth are missing in the upper or lower jaw, or both.
These types of dentures usually have a clasp that encircles the surrounding natural teeth, giving the denture good retention.
Dentures aids in chewing food and thus helps in improving the overall health of the patient.
Dentures helps in improving the aesthetics of a patient with missing teeth. Along with providing you with a beautiful smile, it also gives fullness to the cheek and lip area giving you a better overall look.
Dentures help in improving the speech of the patient.
Dentures replaces painful teeth that cannot be saved by more comfortable artificial teeth.
Complete dentures are made only after the gums have healed following extraction of teeth, and the gums are in a healthy condition.
Complete dentures replace all the teeth in the upper or lower jaw or both. Gums shrink through the healing process of tooth removal, which takes anywhere between six to twelve months. The immediate denture may need adjustments during this period to account for the changes in the gum structure and the underlying bone. This includes soft and hard relining procedure.
An overdenture is a type of a removable denture that takes the support of one or more teeth roots or dental implants. This gives additional retention to the removable denture.
A removable partial denture is a dental prosthesis that replaces some missing teeth and is made around the existing natural teeth.
An overdenture and a removable partial denture are both connected to the teeth roots or the existing natural teeth by anchors made of metal or plastic. These connections help in increasing the stability and retention of dentures.
Complete dentures, partial dentures, and overdentures should all be removed at night before sleeping. This helps the gums in being exposed to the saliva, which helps in controlling the naturally occurring flora which is present in the oral cavity. Saliva helps in the maintenance of a healthy oral cavity.
