Dentures are a functional, versatile and aesthetically pleasing solution to replace missing teeth and support gum tissue. Dentures are designed so that they replicate the function of normal teeth, which enables the ability to chew and speak. Dentures can also be shaped to improve the soft tissue profile of the face which provides a fuller and more youthful appearance.
Dentures have many benefits and are a very useful alternative in cases where implants and bridges may not be possible. Dentures can also be connected to implants to improve their stability and retention, which is quite a big problem for many patients with upper and lower complete dentures.
In addition, Dentures are very commonly used as an interim prosthesis whilst the mouth is healing for implant surgery, as they can be made quickly and are removable.
The denture development process takes a few weeks and several appointments. Depending on each individual’s case, sometimes all the teeth or only some need to be removed and replaced. Therefore you may need either complete dentures, which are a full set, or partial dentures, which just replace one or a few teeth.
The denture will need to fit well over your gums and jawbone. A trial denture will be created from the impressions taken of your mouth. The shape and colour may be adjusted before the final denture is produced.
Dentures should last several years if you take good care of them. You should continue to see your dentist regularly if you have dentures, even if you have complete dentures, so they can check for any problems.
After you get your dentures, you may need one or more follow-up appointments to get adjustments. Never attempt to adjust or repair dentures yourself!
