What are Dentures?
Dentures are a removable solution for replacing missing teeth. They can be grouped into two types:
- Complete dentures
- Partial dentures
If you still have some healthy teeth, partial dentures can be a great option to restore your smile. If you have lost most or all your teeth, complete dentures may be the best solution for you.
How do Dentures Work?
Complete / Full Dentures
Complete dentures are shaped to fit comfortably based on impressions and measurements of your mouth. If you do not have any healthy teeth, the remaining damaged teeth are removed to prepare your mouth for your new dentures. An acrylic base is placed over your gums, with a full set of natural-looking teeth.
Full Conventional Dentures:
Conventional dentures are placed after your mouth has healed from the process of removing teeth. Your dentures will not be ready until after your mouth has healed, as the jaw and gums reshape throughout the healing process.
Full Immediate Dentures:
If you don’t want to go without teeth while your mouth heals, you may opt for immediate dentures. Immediate dentures are prepared based on impressions of your mouth taken ahead of time, and are placed immediately after your teeth are removed.
Immediate dentures require readjustment after your mouth has healed, as the jaw and gums will have changed shape over months of healing.
Partial dentures are used when you still have some healthy teeth remaining. They are connected by a metal frame and are sometimes supported by crowns placed over your natural teeth.
Taking Care of Dentures
You should take good care of your dentures just as you would with natural teeth. Brush them daily to remove food and plaque. Also brush your gums and tongue with a soft-bristle brush before putting your dentures in each day.
When not wearing your dentures, keep them in a cleaner solution or in cool or room-temperature water.
See your dentist for regular checkups to ensure that your dentures are in good condition.
