Got missing teeth? Replace them with Dentures and Partials
A denture is a removable dental appliance that replaces missing teeth and surrounding tissues. Dentures are custom-made in a dental laboratory from impressions taken of your mouth. There are two types of dentures: full and partial. Full dentures are used when all teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain. If a patient needs a full arch restored, they may need to receive a partial denture. A denture is a removable appliance made from resin. Partial dentures are designed in a horseshoe shape, and they fit into a person's mouth by clasping around the remaining teeth. Full dentures cover the entire mouth, and they are held in place with a suction effect that occurs naturally with healthy jawbones. Dentures can also be supported by dental implants. Implant-supported dentures offer patients increased stability when compared to traditional removable appliances, and they also help to preserve jaw bone tissue. Patients should visit their dentist twice a year to have their dentures cleaned. This is essential for removing bacteria and preventing tooth decay. Your dentist may also recommend soaking your dentures overnight in a specialized cleanser to prevent them from becoming stained.
What are the benefits offered by Dentures and Partials?
Dentures are removable replacements for missing teeth. When you've lost all of your natural teeth from gum disease, tooth decay, or injury, replacing missing teeth will benefit your appearance and your health. Without support from the denture, facial muscles sag, making a person look older. For complete tooth loss, an implant-supported full bridge or full denture is recommended to replace all the teeth. Partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain. After successful treatment, patients get to enjoy the restored function as well as a natural-looking smile that can boost confidence at work and in social settings as well.
Both denture types help to restore natural chewing ability when teeth are lost due to tooth decay, gum disease, or injury. They also help improve speech and prevent facial sagging that can occur from the loss of so many teeth at once. People also choose to get dentures because they can't afford dental implants or are waiting for their teeth to heal after oral surgery, such as a tooth extraction or a dental implant procedure. Getting dentures is the next best option until the person is ready to receive implants.
