Dentures are commonly referred to as false teeth, used to replace missing teeth. Complete/Full dentures replace an entire jaw (upper and/or lower) of teeth. Partial dentures replace a few teeth. Made to order exclusively for each patient, the dentures fit comfortably in the mouth cavity, well supported by the soft and hard tissues that surround them.
Dentures are of two types namely the “immediate” and the “conventional” types. In the case of immediate denture, the replaced teeth are done on the same day, generally to minimize the chances of bleeding after extraction. The conventional type may take a time period of 8 to 12 weeks for the gum healing process to take place before dentures are placed. However, the dentists may advise you on the time period as it is different for everyone depending on the case.
Maintenance of dentures:
The denture is removable and is made up of acrylic plastic or metal materials and porcelain depending on the choice of patient or based on the suitability advice by the dentist. Your Dentist will give you specific instructions on how to safely manage the denture. The regular maintenance activity includes removing of denture and brush it every day, soaking denture in cleansing water during nights and avoiding boiling water to sterilize the denture etc.,
Alternatives to Dentures:
