When you lose your natural teeth, it not only can affect your smile but also the way you speak and even how you eat. Whether the loss is due to gum disease, dental injury or tooth decay, dentures can be made to closely resemble your natural teeth. This not only can improve your smile’s appearance but also your dental functionality.
Various Types Of Dentures
Dentures are removable appliances we use to help replace missing teeth.
- Conventional dentures are a full set placed in the mouth after all remaining teeth have been removed and the tissue has healed.
- Immediate dentures are generally inserted on the same day teeth are removed.
- Overdentures are made to supplement existing natural teeth when some can be saved, helping provide stability and support.
Fitting & Care
Dentures may require an initial adjustment and standard refitting period. Just like having natural teeth, they require good dental care to ensure good health. Brushing your gums, tongue, and roof of your mouth before inserting them helps stimulate circulation in your mouth.
Rinsing and brushing them along with their safe storage supports their cleanliness. And scheduling regular dental check-ups to ensure their health and safety is key.
