Complete dentures or detachable tooth replacements might be the most practical alternative for people who have lost several teeth. Just even a few decades ago, losing your teeth meant having to live with an empty smile, slurred speech, and the inability to eat a wide variety of food types.
But now, people have a real opportunity to bring back their “full” smiles!
Why choose complete dentures:
Most people need complete dentures after a particular age; they’re frequently chosen because they’re convenient to use. In addition, they have distinctive pink parts that are supposed to resemble the palette and gum tissues. These enhancements contribute to a pleasing and utterly natural-looking smile.
One of the significant advantages of this method of tooth replacement is acquiring functional, artificial teeth in a short period. In addition, complete dentures have the quickest overall treatment time compared to all other tooth replacement treatments. Therefore, it makes it perfect for those who need replacements at the earliest possible.
Types of complete dentures:
Conventional Dentures: Conventional dentures are developed and made before a patient’s teeth are removed. This is because there will be a healing period for the gums after the teeth are removed, and the patient will not have any teeth during this time. Conventional dentures are implanted after the gums have healed and stabilized, and after having an adequate time to heal, the dentures will fit nicely. These are acrylic resin-based dentures that rely on the alveolar ridge, saliva, and other supporting elements to keep them in place.
Immediate dentures: These are dentures that are usually placed soon after all the teeth are removed. This denture aids in the confinement of the underlying ridge, remodeling the denture’s interior during the healing phase. This type of denture must be taken care of regularly, as the underlying tissues heal and restructure.
Since immediate, conventional, equilibrated, and metal-based dentures are all detachable, they must be treated cautiously when they are not in the mouth. In addition, dentures must be soaked in a water-based solution at night, as per dentist recommendations. Finally, because dentures are not impervious to plaque, it’s necessary to clean them gently and daily, which will ensure your dentures remain in top condition!
