What are Dentures?
We recommend dentures when a person is missing all or most of their natural teeth. A denture, or a complete denture as it is also known, is an oral prosthesis that replaces missing teeth and supports the lips and cheeks. The teeth are attached to a gum-colored base composed of plastic, porcelain, or a combination of the two materials.
Dentures that are esthetically pleasing and stable can help patients with missing teeth rediscover their smiles thanks to materials and treatment planning technology advancements.
Types of Dentures
Complete and partial dentures are available for individuals who lost some or all of their teeth on the upper and lower dental arches. Our goal is to provide solutions that appear and feel natural by making comfortable, well-fitting dentures using strong, premium materials. There are three types of dentures.
Partial Dentures: If you still have some of your natural teeth and some are gone, partial dentures are a fantastic alternative. They offer strong dental support for your remaining natural teeth and are a removable option for replacing just a few missing teeth. Similar to complete dentures, if other restorations like dental implants are not suitable or practical for you, Dr. Chang may advise partial dentures as part of a comprehensive treatment plan.
Complete Dentures: Full dentures are detachable prosthetic teeth prostheses that cover the entire mouth arch. Complete dentures may be an excellent option for restoring your smile and enhancing your oral health if you have lost all teeth in one or both arches. When other restorations, like dental implants, are not feasible or suitable for you, we may recommend complete dentures.
Fixed Dentures: Dental implants are used to anchor fixed dentures firmly. The implants help retain and support the dentures to provide better esthetics and function. Fixed dentures can last a lifetime and feel almost identical to natural teeth with the proper care.
What are the Benefits of Dentures?
Receiving traditional dentures may be quicker and less expensive than getting dental implants, which is one of its main benefits. Once dentures are positioned on the gums, speaking, smiling, and chewing improves immediately. Dentures are furthermore removable, making it simple to clean them and enabling your gums to “breathe” for optimum tissue health. When teeth are missing, the face may appear “sunk in,” however dentures can counteract this effect. As a result, after treatment, our patients can look younger. Because their replacement teeth look so natural, most patients are satisfied with the results. Plus, we can adjust your dentures to fit your evolving needs.
How to Care for My Dentures
To stay clean, stain-free, and attractive, you must adequately maintain traditional removable dentures. Using conventional removable dentures requires specific cleaning procedures, which are listed below.
After eating, take off and clean your dentures by running water over them to eliminate any leftover food and loose particles. To get rid of food, plaque, and other deposits, brush your dentures daily. Be sure to brush your mouth with a soft-bristled toothbrush. Abrasive cleaning agents, bleach-containing products like whitening toothpaste, and hot water should also be avoided when washing your dentures. When cleaning them, handle them cautiously to avoid bending or damaging the plastic or clasps.
To keep dentures wet and in shape, soak them overnight in a mild denture-soaking solution. Please make an appointment for routine dental exams so Dr. Chang may check your mouth’s interior to ensure it stays healthy and maintains an appropriate fit, preventing slippage and discomfort.
