Dentures are removable prosthetic devices used to replace missing teeth. Thanks to improvements in the materials used to make them, dentures are now more natural-looking and comfortable than ever before!
Types of Dentures Available
There are 2 types of dentures :
A complete denture teeth arch can be made if all of the upper or lower teeth need to be extracted. Complete dentures can be either ‘conventional’ or ‘immediate’.
Conventional: After the remaining teeth are removed and the gum tissue has healed, a conventional Dentures is fitted and placed.
Immediate: An immediate denture is placed immediately after the remaining teeth are extracted. This kind of denture is recommended as a temporary solution as the bone and gum shape may change during the healing process.
A partial denture is constructed to fill gaps of one or more adjacent missing teeth. In this replacement, the denture is attached to the adjoining teeth by a metal framework. This not only fills the gap created by the missing teeth but prevents the teeth from moving during the smile makeover.
If you have had problems with your cosmetic dentures becoming loose, implants may be your perfect solution.
Stabilisation of complete dentures using Implants
Stabilisation of full dentures by using dental implants will mitigate problems associated with having loose dentures. Studies have proved that poor chewing capacity in those people who wear complete dentures will lead to oral diseases. Having ill-fitting dentures for a long term will also cause shrinkage in jaw bones, which result in problems like jowls and ‘witches chin’.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, we encourage you to discuss these matters with an appropriately qualified health practitioner at the denture clinic.
Tips to take care of your dentures
- When you’re not wearing them, keep your dentures in a glass of plain cold water so they don’t dry out.
- Brush your dentures daily with a soft toothbrush to eliminate plaque and to prevent them from becoming discoloured. Refrain from using toothpaste, and instead use a proper denture cleaner.
- If your dentures break or don’t fit as before, contact your dentist immediately.
