Dentures

What are Dentures ?

Conventional dentures are removable. Dentures are replacements for missing teeth that can be taken out and put back into your mouth. While dentures take some getting used to, and will never feel exactly the same as one's natural teeth, today's dentures are natural looking and more comfortable than ever.

There are two main types of dentures: full and partial. Our dentist will help you choose the type of denture that's best for you based on whether some or all of your teeth are going to be replaced.

How do Dentures Work?

With full dentures, a flesh-colored acrylic base fits over your gums. The base of the upper denture covers the palate (the roof of your mouth), while that of the lower denture is shaped like a horseshoe to accommodate your tongue. some rely on bonding or clipping onto teeth or dental implants.

Dentures are also commonly celled dental plate or false teeth meaning the same.

Removable Partial Dentures are for patients who are missing SOME of their teeth on a particular arch. Complete Dentures or full dentures are worn by patients who are missing all of the teeth in a single arch. Recently there has been a move in the practice to increase denture stability with implants.

The insertion of implants into the bone below the dentures do help to provide improved support and stability to withstand the pressure when the denture is used for chewing, keeping the bone from resorbing.

When implants are integrated into the treatment, the denture is now referred to as being an implant supported overdenture.

We produce clip bar systems, telescopic crowns or many different dental restoration work in order to choose the perfect solution in order to anchor the overdenture.

In the majority of cases, complete dentures are comfortable soon after insertion, however in many cases, there can two adjustment visits required to remove sore spots.

Just like natural teeth, dentures need to be brushed daily to clean them from food deposits and plaque.

Brushing helps prevent dentures from becoming permanently stained and keeps your mouth stay healthy.

Like all other dental procedures regular dental check-ups are important.
