WHAT ARE THE TYPES OF DENTURES?
Because everyone’s mouth and oral health is unique, there are a number of types of conventional dentures available, including partials, full dentures, immediate dentures and overdentures.
As the name suggests, partial dentures (also called partials or removable partial denture prosthesis) are designed for patients with a few missing teeth.
The partial dentures themselves consist of one or more artificial teeth that are held in place with a clasp. These can be taken out by the patient at night before bed and for cleaning.
Full dentures (also called complete dentures) are for patients who have lost all of their teeth. Some people may find these uncomfortable at first as they do take some getting used to. Full dentures are held in place by suction or adhesives. The two types of full dentures are immediate dentures and complete dentures.
Immediate dentures are made prior to having your teeth extracted and put into place immediately. The advantage of this is that you do not have to wait until your mouth heals (up to six months) to have a full set of teeth again.
Complete dentures are usually put in place once gums and jaw have healed.
What’s the implant denture?
The implant is a metal frame or post embedded through surgery into the jawbone under the gums. Implant Dentists at Wellness Dental can fix the replacement teeth once these are in position.The main benefit is the implant is done to appear like a natural tooth. The crown (artificial tooth) is shaped so it is similar to a genuine tooth. It is not easy to differentiate implants from normal teeth even if you look at them closely. Another benefit is dental implants are long lasting. False teeth require replacing every 7 to 10 years but the implant is a permanent denture since it is attached to the mouth.
Taking Care of Dentures
It is actually very easy to take care of dentures. You will need to clean them every day with warm water to prevent warping. There are many clinic products to clean dentures. There are even electronic denture baths that are pretty economical.
