Dentures are prosthetic devices that replace missing teeth. They are made of a combination of plastic, metal, or ceramic and can be removable or fixed.
Dentures can be used to replace missing teeth or as a cosmetic device to change the appearance of your smile. They are often used in cases where you have lost all your natural teeth due to periodontal disease, tooth decay, injury, or trauma. When you lose your teeth, you have a few options to replace them. These options are dentures and implants.
What to Expect When Considering Dentures?
Dentures are used to replace missing teeth and provide support for natural teeth. Dentures can be made of metal, acrylic, or porcelain. They are also known as false teeth since they are not natural but rather artificial replacements for natural ones. They typically are made to be removable, where they can be removed for sleeping and cleaning. This was the most common way to replace missing teeth in the past. They are straightforward, and the procedure is very easy.
You simply need to schedule an appointment with your dentist. Sometimes they will want to pull a few more teeth to give you the very best outcome. Oftentimes dentures are for your full mouth. However, they can be sections as well. These are called bridges.
Rotten and broken teeth will need to be extracted before fitting dentures can occur. Once the bad teeth are extracted, you will then have molds made to have your dentures custom-made for you.
Why Choose Dentures Over Implants?
Dentures are a popular choice because they are less invasive and require less recovery time. They can be removed easily and replaced when needed. They also offer a better fit for people with limited jaw movement or those who have lost their teeth due to trauma or disease. Dentures are more affordable than implants and don’t require any type of surgery. While many people would prefer implants, there are certainly reasons to look at dentures as a viable option.
How To Look After Dentures
It is recommended that dentures should be cleaned at least twice a day with a toothbrush and water and rinsed in between brushing sessions with a mild soap and water solution. This will help remove plaque build-up on the denture’s surface and prevent gum disease. You can still have oral health problems even if you have dentures, which is why it is so important that you understand how to care for them properly.
