A denture is positioned in the mouth to replace the natural teeth with a gadget or a removable prosthetic device to support the cheeks and lips. It fully substitutes the old set of teeth.
What Are The Benefits Of Dentures?
Dentures help restore a natural and desirable look to the teeth. Specific benefits of dentures are:
The prosthodontist decides what type of treatment is best for you. At first, measurements are taken of your jaws and the spaces in them. Then, their impressions are customized. The wax forms or plastic pattern models are fabricated to fit in the same position and shape of the denture. You will be made to try out these models at certain times, and the denture will be made to match the color of natural teeth before making the final denture. The necessary adjustments will be made accordingly.
The two types of dentures are:
Complete Dentures: Complete dentures can be either "conventional" or "immediate." Conventional dentures are made and positioned after the tissues have healed and the rest of the teeth are taken out. Immediate Dentures are placed soon after the remaining teeth are removed.
Partial Dentures: Partial dentures can take the place of only a few missing teeth. A removable partial denture or bridge usually comprises replacement teeth fixed to a pink or gum-colored plastic base, which is occasionally connected by a metal framework to hold the denture in place in the mouth. These dentures are used when one or more natural teeth stay in the upper or lower jaw.
It might take a week or two to get used to the dentures. Your dentures may feel awkward and uncomfortable in the first place while you learn to speak and eat with them. Your mouth will get accustomed to your brand-new dentures with time. Even though they may look different at first for you, they will look great to everyone else.
Your tongue and mouth might need to get used to new dentures, so it is advised that you prefer eating softer foods. Have adhesives or medications that the dentist suggests. Get regularly checked in the scheduled appointments.
