Dentures are orthodontic dental appliances designed and built to regain facial and dental aesthetics. Dentures can be fabricated as full (complete) and partial dentures. They are custom-designed prosthetics that act as teeth replacements. They are engineered to promote comfort and allow patients to smile a fuller smile.
Dentures offer patients with stable dental care. It allows you to have either complete replacement of your dentition or a partial replacement. With support from dentures, patients can also expect to regain jawbone support enabling them to have a full face. It improves phonetics and allows you to eat and laugh with confidence and comfort.
Dentures are generally engineered by using materials like acrylic resin or chrome cobalt metal. Dentures with additional support from metal can offer more stability too. Flexible dentures are made of nylon.
Full dentures can be used to cover both the upper arch and lower arches of your jawbone. The upper denture would cover the palate while the lower denture, mostly designed like a horseshoe, is designed to accommodate the tongue.
They are custom-made by taking impressions of your mouth.
There are several types of dentures available. Your dentist will know what'd suit you the best.
Conventional full dentures
Conventional full dentures are placed to replace any missing teeth after the tissues of the jawbone have been healed.
Immediate full dentures
Immediate full dentures require no waiting time and can be placed immediately after teeth have been removed.
Partial dentures generally rest on a metal framework and are attached to your natural teeth.
