Dentures

Dentures

Dentures are the dental appliance that replaces missing teeth. They are made up of plastic resin teeth attached to a gum-colored base. They fit comfortably over the gum line and can be removed when necessary. They are designed in a way that mimics the appearance of natural teeth.

Patients missing one tooth, multiple teeth or all of their teeth may be candidates for dentures

Advantages of Dentures

Patients who have dentures experience the following benefits:

- They are easier to clean.

- They are cheaper than bridges.

- They are easier to repair.

- They are so natural-looking that people may not even notice you have them.

-They are custom made so that they fit perfectly and naturally.

Procedure for Dentures

 During the first appointment, the dentist begins the procedure through a complete dental examination which may include, X-Rays and regular dental checkups. The dental impressions of the mouth are taken and sent to the lab for the fabrication of the dentures. 

In the succeeding dental appointment, the dentist places the dentures inside the mouth. The acrylic base stays on the gums with the help of suction. 

Aftercare

After your dentures are placed, you should continue to brush your remaining teeth twice a day with toothpaste and soft-bristled toothbrushes. Brushing keeps your teeth and mouth clean and healthy.

You should also continue flossing your teeth once a day. It helps remove food debris and plaque from between your teeth and under your gumline. If you don’t brush and floss your teeth, you can other dental diseases that can affect the dentures.

-Remove and rinse your dentures after every meal. Leaving them in for any amount of time can increase the risk of oral bacteria growth. Use a denture cleaner to soak the dentures overnight, if possible. Rinse it thoroughly before placing them back in your mouth.

Dentures are an excellent option for patients who prefer to restore their missing teeth.
