What are Dentures?

In simple words Dentures means a temporary arrangement of an artificial set of teeth that is made to regain the lost teeth to facilitate easy chewing on foods. If you’ve lost all of your teeth or believe you may need total extractions of your remaining teeth, you have several options for new dentures. Dentures are removable prosthetics designed to restore the appearance and function of your smile.

What are the types ?

A denture is a removable appliance that serves as a replacement for lost teeth. There are two types of dentures:

1. Complete denture

2. Partial denture

Complete dentures are suitable when the entire teeth are lost or missing. A partial denture is used when little numbers of natural teeth still remain; it covers up for the missing teeth.

1. Complete denture

A complete denture is fabricated as a replacement for the entire of missing teeth. Complete dentures are of 2 types - conventional and immediate.

Conventional denture

Conventional dentures are placed in the mouth only after the gum tissue has healed following the removal of all the teeth. This means there is a gap of nearly 8 to 12 weeks since the removal of teeth for placing a permanent denture. During this healing period, immediate dentures are used. Immediate dentures are made ready in advance before the removal of teeth and are immediately placed once the teeth are removed. This is an arrangement put in place to ensure that the wearer of the denture need not be without teeth during the healing period, thereby ensuring that his eating habits are not hampered.

Immediate denture

Immediate dentures are considered as a temporary arrangement till such a time that conventional dentures are placed. Immediate dentures will need constant adjustments during its their use since the healing gums will create problems with the denture's fitting.

Partial denture

A Partial denture is a removable appliance that acts as a bridge to replace missing teeth. As discussed, partial dentures are used when other teeth still exist in the mouth. A partial denture has replacement teeth attached to a base that has the coloration of gums. It usually has a metallic framework that ensures that the denture is held in place in the mouth.

How are dentures made?

The base of a denture must look like natural gum tissue and is made up of carefully pigmented acrylic known as polymethyl methacrylate, or PMMA. The visible PMMA surfaces are highly polished to look as natural as possible, and they also help to prevent the build-up of bacteria on your dentures to keep them feeling fresh and clean.

Upper dentures tend to cover the roof of your mouth, while the lower denture is U-shaped to ensure there is enough room for your tongue. Both upper and lower dentures rest on the gum tissue, and suction helps to keep them in place.
