Complete & partial removal dentures
Dentures are a great option for replacing missing teeth. For many men and women, a new set of dentures restores more than just a beautiful smile; it also restores confidence.
Dentures are artificial teeth and gums created by dentists to replace lost natural teeth and adjacent structure; that can be removed and put back into your mouth as you please. It can either be full or partial, meaning it can either replace partial gum line if just a few teeth are missing or all. Before getting dentures, dentists will customize it according to your mouth in a way it matches to your existing tooth.
What are dentures made of?
Earlier, artificial teeth in a denture were made of plastic or porcelain but modern dentures are made of hard resin. Whatever is the material, general materials used to make dentures are more fragile than natural teeth and hence chances for it be chipped or cracked is more if not cared properly
Why wear dentures?
Dentures not only improve the appearance of a smile that has multiple missing teeth, but they also keep the structure of the mouth sound by supporting the structures around the cheeks and lips. Dentures also make it possible to eat foods that require chewing, making it possible to keep your diet the same and ensure that you are properly nourished.
Nevertheless, dentures are a viable solution to replace teeth that are causing serious pain and oral health issues, such as those with rotten roots or severely damaged tooth structure. Having dentures fitted means that troublesome teeth are eliminated and replaced with a strong and beautiful alternative.
Why Dentures are important for your wellbeing?
it is very important to wear your dentures and make sure they fit well. If you don’t wear your dentures you may suffer from the following issues:
Gradual progressive bone loss can occur when you are missing any teeth from the jaw. This can result in changes in facial structure and problems with the jaw. Wearing dentures can help support your jaw bone and remaining teeth if you have any.
When bone loss occurs it can change the way your face looks. You can experience sagging skin, collapsed lip and sinking around the eyes and mouth. You can avoid this by wearing dentures which gives good support to your facial structures.
When you have missing tooth, the missing gaps will be seen when you do laugh or smile which will affect one’s confidence. If you don’t wear your full or partial denture it will affect your smile. A proper fitting denture completes your dazzling smile.
The missing tooth will result in the bite load to be shared by fewer teeth and it creates a lot of stress to the adjacent tooth and its supporting gums. When you have missing teeth with no replacement solution, other teeth can become loose and the gums can become sore.
Overall physical well being
A complete set of tooth ensures one with confident and a much youthful look. Not only it improves your aesthetics of face, it also helps one to eat better, hence enabling a proper balanced diet intake, improving one’s health status and quality of life drastically.

This full removable denture is made and placed in your mouth after the remaining teeth are removed and tissues have healed, which may take several months.
This removable denture is inserted on the same day that the remaining teeth are removed. Your dentist will take measurements and make models of your jaw during a preliminary visit. You don’t have to be without teeth during the healing period, but may need to have the denture relined or remade after your jaw has healed.
Sometimes some of your teeth can be saved to preserve your jawbone and provide stability and support for the denture. An overdenture fits over a small number of remaining natural teeth after they have been prepared by your dentist. Latest advancement in dentistry allows Implants serve the same functions too.
There is a learning curve on how to get accustomed to the new dentures and it may feel little awkward initially but the body trains itself to get used to it very soon. The dentures may feel loose while the muscles of your cheek and tongue learn to keep them in place. It is not unusual to experience minor irritation or soreness. You may find that saliva flow temporarily increases. As your mouth becomes accustomed to the dentures, these problems should go away.
Follow-up appointments with the dentist are generally needed after a denture is inserted so the fit can be checked and adjusted. If any problem persists, particularly irritation or soreness persist, consult your dentist immediately.
Dentures will, eventually, need to be replaced, but with the proper care, they can last several years. In general, dentists recommend getting new dentures every five to eight years. Over this time, dentures get worn out due to regular use, and your gums may change shape or shrink over the years.
- Rinse your dentures before brushing to remove any loose food or debris.
- Use a soft bristle toothbrush and a non-abrasive cleanser to gently brush all the surfaces of the dentures so they don’t get scratched.
- When brushing, clean your mouth thoroughly—including your gums, cheeks, roof of your mouth and tongue to remove any plaque. This can help reduce the risk of oral irritation and bad breath.
- When you’re not wearing your dentures, put them in a safe place covered in water to keep them from warping.
- Occasionally, denture wearers may use adhesives. Adhesives come in many forms: creams, powders, pads/wafers, strips or liquids. If you use one of these products, read the instructions, and use them exactly as directed.
