What are Dentures?
Dentures are removable oral appliances used to replace one or more missing teeth. Missing teeth may be the result of:
- Advanced periodontal disease
Regardless of the cause of your missing teeth, dentures can help restore the function and health of your smile, as well as boost your self-confidence.
Types of Dentures
The two main types of dentures are partial dentures and complete dentures.
- Partial Dentures – Partial dentures are used if you are missing one or more teeth but have remaining natural teeth. They are secured in your mouth by using a thin framework, clasps, or hooks that attach to neighboring teeth. Partial dentures are made of denture teeth and are supported by a framework that mimics the appearance of gum tissue.
- Complete Dentures – Complete dentures replace all teeth in one or all full dental arches. The dentist may also recommend a denture adhesive for better stability. Additionally, dental implants can be inserted into the jawbone to improve the stability of the denture.
Steps for Getting Dentures
Typically, the process of getting dentures is between 6-12 weeks. However, this will depend on each patient and the type of dentures you are getting. The basic steps for getting dentures are as follows.
- Visit dentist for impressions of your mouth – During your visit, the dentist takes precise impressions of upper and lower arches and sends these to a dental laboratory.
- Dentist records relationship of arches to each other – The dentist will test your speech, check how your dentures fit and function, and select the shape and color of your denture teeth to match closely with your natural teeth. The dentures will then be sent to the lab for final fabrication.
- Final touches – Once the dentures are ready, any final changes to the dentures will be implemented. It’s important to remember that you may need some time to adapt to denture while eating and speaking.
