Dentures are a suite of teeth that can be
easily placed and removed at will. They make an excellent choice for those who
are looking for a natural, non-permanent solution to replace their teeth.
Modern dentures are highly realistic in appearance
and mimic the natural look of teeth. They may need some getting used to in the
beginning, but they are generally considered comfortable.
Are The Different Types of Dentures?
Dentures come in three varieties:
conventional full dentures, immediate full dentures and the partial dentures.
Our dentists at Wellness Dental Studio will examine the health of your oral
cavity, teeth and gums, and recommend you the best choice for you.How
Are Dentures Made?
Dentures are custom-made implants that
fit over your gums. Full dentures have an acrylic base that covers the roof of
your mouth or the hard palate from above and accommodates the tongue from
Do I Get My Dentures?
To get your custom-made dentures, you
will need to get an appointment at Wellness Dental Studio. Our dentists will
first take impressions of your mouth which will then be used to construct a
denture in our laboratories.
One of three types of dentures can be
made. Conventional full dentures can only be placed after all-natural teeth are
removed, and the underlying gum has healed. This can take several months.
Immediate full dentures are placed
immediately after all-natural teeth are removed. However, these dentures need
to have multiple follow-up appointments for realignments until the tissue and
bones have completely healed.
For partial dentures, you don’t need to
get your natural teeth removed. These dentures sit on a metal body that is
inserted on your natural teeth. Partial dentures may need crowns in the
underlying natural teeth for better anchorage.What
To Expect After Getting Dentures?
Dentures can take some time getting used
to. Many people complain of a bulky or loose feeling in their mouth as well as
excessive saliva. After a few months of use, dentures eventually become comfortable.How
To Care For Dentures?
Denture care is extremely important to
make them last for a longer time. You should handle your dentures gently, keep
them moist and brush and floss regularly. It’s also important to visit your
dentist frequently if you have dentures.
