Dentures can be very useful to replace one or many or even all of your teeth. They gain support through suction fitting as well as soft tissues in the mouth. They can be made from acrylic or metal (Cobalt Chrome).
Dentures are prosthetic dental appliances fit to replace missing teeth. Dentures are removable false teeth made of plastic, nylon or metal. These set of teeth are a removable stand-in for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. There are various types of false teeth including partial dentures which can be fitted around your own teeth. Individuals who are missing one or more teeth due to oral infection, injury or disease would benefit from getting partial dentures. Partial Denture options allow patients to enjoy normal oral activities and protect the facial structure for an appealing smile. You can also obtain full dentures if you’ve lost all of your teeth.
Conventional dentures are not fixed but can be removed at any time. They can, however, be secured further in the jaw with implants – called implant retained dentures. These are especially useful when there are few or no teeth left in the jaws. These particular teeth try to aim to save the patient’s oral structure whilst providing them with replacement teeth. It’s important for people without teeth to seek medical help as leaving tooth gaps unattended can cause oral trauma which results in further tooth loss. The artificial teeth will be fitted as soon as your teeth are removed. The denture will fit perfectly over your jawbone and gums, but if you have dentures fitted immediately after the removal of several teeth, the gums and bone will alter in shape quite quickly and the dentures will most likely need reclining remaking after a few months.
There are many advantages to getting this procedure done, the first being appearance. Artificial teeth can boost a patient’s self-esteem and confidence. Besides this, dentures can help with the articulation of words and chewing as they help strengthen facial muscles. There are also medical benefits of having false teeth such as helping prevent ‘bone atrophy’ or loss of jaw bone density due to the deficiency in the supply of necessary nutrients in that area. Moreover, another benefit is the fact that they are fit to be comfortable and stable for the patient. Lastly, patients will be able to engage in everyday activities such as eating and speaking with peace of mind.
