A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and the tissues connected to those teeth. It is made of acrylic plastic and sometimes porcelain and metal materials. A denture closely resembles natural gum tissue and teeth.
Complete dentures replace all of the teeth, while partial dentures fill in the spaces created by missing teeth and prevent other teeth from shifting position. Complete dentures are “immediate” or “conventional.”
An immediate denture is a complete denture or partial denture that is inserted on the same day, immediately following the removal of the natural teeth. The immediate denture acts as a Band-Aid to protect the tissues and reduce bleeding after tooth extraction.
Type of Dentures:
Complete Dentures: The conventional denture is ready for placement in the mouth about 8 to 12 weeks after the teeth have been removed and the gum tissue has healed. However, some dentists may recommend more time before placing a conventional denture.
A full denture replaces all your upper or lower teeth. If you have some remaining teeth then you need to get those removed before going for the complete dentures. Our complete denture plates are made to support your soft lip skin. So, you feel comfortable.
Partial Dentures: A partial denture is for people who still have some of their natural teeth. Dentures are not just for elderly patients. Patients of any age may lose some or all of their teeth and may require a denture of some sort. Because teeth are a permanent part of the body, tooth loss can have an emotional impact on some people.
It is important to talk to your dentist about any fears, anxiety, or other emotions you are feeling about tooth loss.
These partial dentures are perfect for replacing a few missing teeth. These dentures are flexible, durable, and fit perfectly to give you a perfect sparkling smile.
Dentures Implant: If you are looking for something permanent and natural, then implant dentures are perfect for you. The artificial teeth are shaped just like natural teeth. So, it is practically impossible to differentiate between dentures and natural teeth.
How to Take Care of Dentures:
It is very easy to take care of your dentures. There are many clinical products available which you can use to clean your dentures. It is recommended to consult your dentist before using any product. You can also clean them with warm water.
