No matter how hard we try to hold on to our teeth, sooner or later we get to dentures. But with today’s quality materials and improved technology, dentists can fashion dentures that fit comfortably, stay on and appear natural.
Whether it is porcelain, acrylic or any other type of material used for dentures, they restore proper chewing and self-confidence.
There are two main types of dentures
Complete dentures are made after the teeth have been removed and are of two types: conventional and immediate.
A conventional denture is ready for placement about eight to 12 weeks after the teeth have been removed, while immediate dentures are made in advance and can be positioned as soon as the teeth are removed.
Also known as bridges, removable partial dentures consist of replacement teeth attached to a gum-colored plastic base. Sometimes this base is connected by metal framework to hold the denture in place in the mouth. Partial dentures can be used when one or more natural teeth remain in the upper or lower jaw.
Partial dentures are attached with crowns on the teeth on either side of the space and attaching artificial teeth to them. The created bridge will fit perfectly into the spaces created by missing teeth and it prevents other teeth from changing position.
