Dentures are removable dental appliances that can be used to replace one or more missing teeth. There are two main types of dentures:
Partial dentures – replace one or several missing teeth in either your upper or lower jaw
Full dentures – replace all the teeth in either your upper or lower jaw
It can be made with an acrylic or chrome base and composite teeth. The colour of the teeth will be matched so they blend seamlessly with your natural teeth.
At your initial appointment, the dentist will take impressions of your teeth and gums, which are sent to the laboratory. From these the dental technician is able to make moulds of your mouth, these are used to build up the dentures, with regular appointments to ensure that they fit, allow a proper bite and to ensure that look aesthetically pleasing. They are normally created in four stages and you will need to return to the dentist for an appointment every week for them to be completed. This enables the dental technician to craft unique dentures, designed specifically to meet your needs.
Benefits of Dentures:
Dentures can provide a fresh start – if you have been having problems with your teeth for a number of years, dentures can provide a new set of teeth that are natural looking and custom made.
Dentures are low maintenance – although it will require 4 or 5 appointments to initially make the dentures, once they are made, they simply need cleaning in a similar way to how you would clean your natural teeth.
They allow you to eat a full and varied diet – it may take some time to get used to your dentures but once you are, you will be able to eat and chew comfortably without the fear or pain or discomfort.
They can help make you look younger – They help to fill out your cheeks and give your face the support it needs.
They can help to enhance the appearance of your smile – They can be made so your teeth are straighter and whiter than your original smile, helping to give you confidence in your appearance.
