Dentures

What is Dentures?

Dentures are custom-made, artificial teeth and gums that are meant to fill gaps from tooth loss in the mouth.

Dentures are not permanently fixed to the interior of the mouth, and can easily be taken in and out of the mouth for cleaning.

Dentures used to be made of plastic or porcelain, but now they are typically made from a fabricated, hard resin material.

None of these materials are quite as tough as real tooth enamel, but with proper maintenance and care, dentures can go years.

Benefits of Dentures:

Dentures, also known as false teeth, are removable prosthetic devices designed to replace missing teeth and surrounding tissues. Here are some of the benefits associated with dentures:

1. Aesthetic Improvement

Dentures can enhance the appearance of the smile by replacing missing teeth and restoring facial structure. This can contribute to increased self-confidence and improved overall appearance.

2. Functional Restoration:

Dentures help restore the ability to chew and speak properly, especially in individuals with extensive tooth loss. This can improve the overall quality of life and nutritional intake.

3. Speech Improvement

Missing teeth can affect speech patterns. Dentures provide support for the lips and cheeks, helping individuals articulate words more clearly and improving speech.

4. Cost-Effective Option:

Dentures are often a more affordable option compared to certain dental procedures like dental implants or bridges. They provide a practical solution for individuals with budget constraints.

5. Non-Invasive Treatment:

Unlike some dental procedures that may require surgery or invasive techniques, getting dentures is a relatively non-invasive process. The fitting and adjustment of dentures usually involve minimal discomfort.

6. Versatility

Dentures come in different types, including full dentures (for complete tooth loss) and partial dentures (for partial tooth loss). This versatility allows for customized solutions based on the extent of tooth loss.

7. Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Support

Dentures provide support to the jawbone and surrounding structures, which can be beneficial for individuals with missing teeth, helping to prevent issues related to jaw joint dysfunction.

8. Easy Maintenance

Dentures are removable, making them relatively easy to clean and maintain. Regular cleaning and proper oral hygiene practices can contribute to the longevity of dentures.

9. Immediate Replacement

In cases where teeth need to be extracted, immediate dentures can be placed on the same day. This means that individuals don't have to go without teeth during the healing period

10. Adjustability

Dentures can be adjusted and modified as needed. Over time, changes in the oral tissues may occur, and adjustments to the dentures can help ensure a comfortable fit.

Types of Dentures:

Hybrid Dentures: are fixed and permanent artificial teeth that feel, look, and function just like real teeth. This type of denture is stabilized within the jaw bone and is a combination of a traditional denture and a fixed bridge.

Overdentures: a set of artificial teeth that snaps to a permanently implanted post in the mouth. Overdentures provide a great fit and stability and allow you to replace missing teeth in a way similar to dental implants, but without the high cost associated with tooth-by-tooth dental implant procedures.

Complete Dentures: Also known as full dentures are what most people associate dentures with when they think of artificial teeth. These dentures take up the mouth completely and can be fully removed from the mouth and put back in with ease.

While dentures offer several advantages, it's important to note that they may take some time to get used to, and periodic adjustments may be necessary for optimal comfort and function. Additionally, advances in dental technology have led to other tooth replacement options such as dental implants, which provide a more permanent and stable solution for some individuals. The choice between dentures and other options depends on individual preferences, oral health, and specific dental needs. Consultation with a dentist can help determine the most suitable treatment plan
