Denture base is made of acrylic plastic that can be tinted to match the patient’s natural gum tissues. The prosthetic teeth projecting from the base are designed to look and function just like your natural teeth.
Complete or Partial dentures can be given as a temporary means of toth replacement until a permanent treatment alternative is availed.
Partial removable dentures are held in place in the mouth by wire clasps and/or other means of attachment to the remaining natural teeth. It is prudent to explore other permanent replacement treatment options, like bridges or dental implants.
Complete removable dentures are held in place by “suction cup effect”, and the patient’s-controlled use of their tongue and facial muscles. At first, wearing dentures may require some time to get used to in terms of talking and eating, as the dentures become “balanced” in the space formerly occupied by the teeth. Learning to function with complete removable dentures can be a challenge, as with any prosthetic device.
Dentures also help support the facial skeleton and the soft tissues of the lips and cheeks, which can help create a more youthful appearance. Dental implants can also be used to help stabilize dentures, and often significantly improve a patient’s quality of life.
Types of Full Dentures
Immediate Dentures: These are usually a temporary means of helping you transition to successful denture wearing and help to avoid tooth less look during the healing time after extractions.
Conventional Full Dentures: These are permanent dentures that customized to your mouth with near-perfect accuracy and meant for a long-term usage.
Implant-Supported Overdentures: To increase the stability of a lower or upper denture, it’s possible for it to be securely anchored using two or more dental implants. This option offers a great balance of comfort, functionality and value.
Types of Partial Dentures
Transitional Partial Dentures: These relatively inexpensive removable plastic dentures serve as a temporary tooth replacement and space maintainer as you wait for your mouth to heal from tooth extraction, for example. Once the healing process is complete, dental implants can be placed.
Cast Partial Dentures (CPDs): Usually made of cast metal, these well-constructed, metal-based removable partial dentures are much lighter and less obtrusive than those made of plastic. They are a little more expensive than plastic dentures, but will fit better. They are, however, much less expensive than implants or fixed bridgework.
