Dentures are prosthetic teeth that are fabricated to restore the smile, function and esthetics to replace the missing teeth. Teeth loss could occur as a result of trauma, infection and the dentist might recommend a choice of dentures. Dentures are fabricated to fit closely to the oral tissues and the teeth.
Our smiles are an important part of our individuality and every individual possesses their own distinctive smile. Our goal is to make certain our patients attain their natural looking smile by personalizing and customizing their dentures.
The two forms of dentures are either partial dentures or complete dentures.
Complete dentures are recommended when all of the teeth on the bottom or top jaw or both jaws require replacement. These dentures are fabricated by acrylic with acrylic or porcelain teeth, designed to resemble your natural teeth.
A partial denture has an acrylic base containing one or several artificial teeth within it; it’s created using acrylic or metal and also has clasps that support the adjacent teeth. In addition to the preliminary assessment and fabrication of partial dentures on the teeth, the dentist may request more visits as a way to adjust the partial dentures to ensure they fit as comfortably as possible.
Immediate dentures have some significant benefits. The primary benefit is that a patient does not have to wait for the healing and can get a denture almost immediately. This is especially beneficial for people who are conscious of appearing toothless. Speaking might also be much easier as the change to dentures is going to be quicker, compared to being required to learn how to speak without dentures and then re-learn to speak with dentures. The immediate dentures need to be relined after 6months to a year to accommodate the tissue changes that occur after extractions.
