What are dentures?

Dentures are removable dental appliances designed to replace missing teeth and surrounding tissues. They are custom-made to fit comfortably in the mouth and can be used to restore both function and aesthetics for individuals with missing teeth. Dentures are typically made of acrylic, metal, or a combination of materials and are tailored to match the natural appearance of the patient’s gums and teeth.

Dentures-partial or full, are replacements for missing teeth that can be taken out and put back into the mouth. A partial denture fills in the spaces left by lost or missing teeth. It may be fastened to your natural teeth with metal clasps. 

A complete or full denture replaces all the natural teeth in either the upper or lower jaw. The denture fits securely over the gums and it gives support to the cheeks and lips. Without this support, sagging facial muscles can make a person look older and they will find it harder to eat and speak properly.

 

The Two Main Types of Dentures

There are two main types of dentures:

 

  1. Complete Dentures: These are used when all the teeth in a person’s upper or lower jaw are missing. Complete dentures replace the entire set of teeth in either the upper or lower arch. They rest on the gums and are held in place by suction and sometimes with the help of denture adhesive.
  2. Partial Dentures: Partial dentures are employed when some natural teeth are still present in the mouth. They consist of artificial teeth attached to a framework that clasps onto the remaining natural teeth for support. This helps fill in gaps caused by missing teeth.

Dentures are an effective solution for individuals who have lost teeth due to various reasons, such as tooth decay, gum disease, injury, or age-related tooth loss. They not only improve the ability to eat and speak but also enhance the appearance of the smile, boosting self-esteem.

What are the benefits of dentures you may ask?

Improved Chewing: Dentures restore the ability to eat a variety of foods.

Clear Speech: They help in speaking clearly, especially if missing front teeth.

Enhanced Appearance: Dentures fill gaps, improving the smile and facial appearance.

Support for Facial Muscles: They prevent facial sagging due to tooth loss.

Cost-Effective: Dentures are a more affordable option compared to some alternatives like implants.

Customisable: They can be tailored to match individual preferences and needs

 

The Denture Process

Dentures are custom-made dental appliances that replace missing teeth and surrounding tissues. 

They work by:

  • Consult with a dentist to determine the type of dentures needed.
  • Creating custom dentures based on mouth impressions.
  • Fitting and adjusting dentures for comfort.
  • Wearing dentures to restore chewing, speaking, and appearance.
  • Maintaining dentures through daily care and dental check-ups.
  • Dentures replace missing teeth and provide support to facial muscles, improving overall oral function and aesthetics

 

How do I look after my dentures?

To care for your dentures effectively, follow these steps:

  1. Daily Cleaning: Brush your dentures with a soft-bristle brush or denture-specific brush to remove food particles and plaque. Avoid using regular toothpaste, as it can be abrasive. Use a denture cleaner or mild soap.
  2. Rinse After Meals: After eating, rinse your dentures with water to remove debris.
  3. Handle with Care: When cleaning or handling your dentures, do so over a soft towel or water-filled sink to prevent damage if they are dropped.
  4. Soak Overnight: Remove your dentures at night to allow your gums to rest. Place them in a denture cleaning solution or water to keep them moist.
  5. Clean Your Mouth: Brush your gums, tongue, and palate with a soft toothbrush or gauze to remove plaque and stimulate circulation.
  6. Regular Check-ups: Visit your dentist for routine check-ups to ensure your dentures fit well and to address any adjustments or issues.
  7. Avoid Hot Water: Never use hot water to clean dentures, as it can warp them. Use lukewarm or cool water.
  8. Avoid Abrasive Cleaners: Avoid abrasive materials like stiff brushes or harsh cleaners that can damage dentures.
  9. Store Properly: When not in use, keep your dentures in a denture container filled with water or denture-soaking solution to prevent them from drying out.

Handle Denture Adhesive Sparingly: If you use denture adhesive, follow the instructions carefully and apply it sparingly.
