Dentures are removable appliances that replace a few or all missing teeth and help return give your smile. When you lost all of your teeth, facial muscles sag and causes you to appear prematurely aged.
Dentures not only support those sunken facial muscles, but they reestablish your proper face height and profile. Denture teeth are highly engineered to mimic natural teeth so that one’s appearance is natural. These teeth are set in an aesthetically pleasing way that may even improve the look of your smile.
Many people need to have some form of surgery to remove teeth and correct any gum and teeth problems before the set of artificial teeth can be placed. The denture fitting involves selecting a color, size, and shape of the teeth needed to fit the patient’s space correctly. The denturist will design the denture based on the measurements of the patient’s mouth. Dentures are designed to create a natural-looking smile and support a healthy jawline.
Most dentures last for over five years or ten years, and while there is maintenance involved, they offer an attractive option for people who have lost their teeth and are having speech problems, difficulty chewing or are experiencing pain in the jaw line because of increased tension in the jaw muscles. Dentures will eventually need to be replaced and need to be checked for fit and wear periodically
There are four types of Dentures:
- Conventional Complete Dentures: – Complete dentures designed to replace all of the teeth in the upper and lower quadrants.
- Immediate Complete Dentures: – Immediate dentures made before the last of the teeth are extracted and typically placed immediately after extractions.
- Overdenture: – Overdenture designed to correct only the gaps in the smile or replace missing teeth. These are often secured with clasps or rests.
- Partial Dentures: – Partial dentures are similar in construction as complete dentures except that they use one or more natural teeth for securing the denture.
