Dentures are removable appliances that can replace missing teeth and surrounding tissues. Several types of dentures are available – complete, partials and fixed dentures.
They usually consist of replacement teeth and are generally removable. The base is usually a pink or gum-colored plastic. Some patients will choose to resolve their minor tooth loss issues with the use of crowns and bridges. A partial denture is a suitable option for those patients who lack the necessary support in their surrounding teeth for the crown and bridge treatment. Partial denture is less expensive in comparison to other, more costly options like implants.
Where oral condition warrants the extraction of any remaining teeth, the process of receiving replacement full dentures will generally involve several stages.
Initially, the dentist takes an impression of the jaws after assessing the oral situation of the patient. Dentist then records the alignment of the upper and lower jaw. Once a model has been crafted, the final denture will be fit to ensure its correct function, aesthetic appeal and level of comfort.
Made from bio compatible materials, they look and feel natural within the mouth. They function as replacements for original teeth. The dentist ensures the correct colour match against existing teeth. Thus, the end result is not only strong, stable but also functional new mouth.
