A denture is basically a removable appliance that is used for replacing a missing tooth and the surrounding tissue.
Dentures are always custom made that are designed according to the needs of a mouth.
They help in creating a natural smile for people with defective teeth.
The main question remains is what type of dentures do you need? As already mentioned earlier, the dentures are designed according to the needs of patients. In the past however, dentures were quite heavy and bulky. The newer technology has enabled dentists to provide a perfectly beautiful smile with the help of lightweight materials. The present dentures are lighter and even more natural than ever.
Partial and Complete Dentures
Both partial and complete denture services are provided by Smile Dental. The complete dentures are used in cases where a person is missing every tooth in his or her mouth. A Partial denture is used in cases where a person is missing just one or a few teeth.
In case of a complete denture, the process can be either immediate or conventional. This process is applicable when the teeth have been removed and when the gum beneath has completely healed. The conventional denture can be processed weeks after all teeth have been removed.
Immediate dentures, unlike the conventional ones are made in advance and have the ability to be positioned as soon as the teeth have been removed from the
mouth. The wearer in fact does not even have to be without teeth during the gum healing period.
Dentures are a set of replacement teeth or false teeth worn to replacing missing teeth, Partial dentures are used to replace single or multiple missing gaps. Full dentures, compoete dentures or overdentures are used to replace full jaw missing gaps.
Dentures prevent adjacent teeth from changing position and moving into the empty gaps as well as maintain a persons facial profile. Dentures provide better outlook appearance as missing gaps are covered with new teeth.
Dentures may be made of a metal or acrylic resin that is a plastic-like material molded to fit to the shape of a person’s mouth.
1) Acrylic Dentures
Acyrlic dentures are plastic dentures holding false teeth on the plate. Both partial and full dentures may be made of acyrlic resin materials.
2) Metal frame dentures
Metal frame dentures are dentures that have a metal framework with false teeth placed on the metal frame. Partial dentures may be made from metal base frame as a longer lasting solution.
3) Full Dentures
Full dentures, complete dentures or overdentures are used to replace full jaw missing gaps.
Full dentures are removable prostheses and may slip and slide. Dental implants may be used to help retain dentures in place. The dental implants are posts whereby the full dentures may be fitted over in holding down the dentures down securely.
4) Implant Dentures
Dental Implant Dentures uses conventional dental implant posts and are long-term treatment solutions. A locator, ball or bar may be placed over the implant posts. The complete dentures has a a socket on the reverse in securely locking the full dentures in place over the locaor, ball or ball..
The implant is a metal frame or post embedded through surgery into the jawbone under the gums. Implant Dentists at Smile Dental can fix the replacement teeth once these are in position.The main benefit is the implant is done to appear like a natural tooth. The crown (artificial tooth) is shaped so it is similar to a genuine tooth. It is not easy to differentiate implants from normal teeth even if you look at them closely. Another benefit is dental implants are long lasting. False teeth require replacing every 7 to 10 years but the implant is a permanent denture since it is attached to the mouth
It is actually very easy to take care of dentures. You will need to clean them every day with warm water to prevent warping. There are many clinic products to clean dentures. There are even electronic denture baths that are pretty economical.
