Denture

It’s not easy to smile openly, laugh loudly, or eat the things you love when you’re missing teeth.

Whether you’re missing a single tooth or all of them, our skilled dentists will collaborate with prestigious laboratories to design dentures that are unique to your mouth and bite.

Types of DentuRes

The choice of denture type depends on various factors, including the extent of tooth loss, the health of the gums and remaining teeth, budget considerations, and personal preferences.

Our dentist will assess your oral health and discuss the most suitable denture options for your specific needs. Proper care and maintenance, including regular dental
check-ups, are essential to ensure the longevity and effectiveness of dentures.

Complete Dentures

These are used when all the teeth in one or both dental arches (upper and lower) are missing.

Complete dentures for the upper arch typically cover the entire palate, while lower arch dentures are shaped like a horseshoe to accommodate the tongue.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain. They consist of replacement teeth attached to a base made of plastic or metal.

Partial dentures often have clasps or connectors that anchor to the remaining natural teeth, providing stability.

Implant-Supported Dentures

These dentures are anchored to dental implants surgically placed in the jawbone.

Implant-supported dentures offer excellent stability, prevent bone loss, and provide a secure bite. They can be used for both complete and partial dentures.

FreQuently Asked Questions

The day when teeth are extracted might also be the day that dentures are delivered.

They are called “immediate dentures” because they can be put in right away. When getting a traditional denture, it’s best to wait around for a few months to ensure the extraction sites have completely healed.

People who have never used dentures before frequently ask whether they can permanently attach the false teeth. Permanent dentures can be affixed, yes. This dental procedure is only one of several options available to those who are missing teeth or need to have teeth pulled.

Bone loss caused by periodontal disease may speed up tooth loss, which might leave you with the insufficient bone for a successful dental implant. This might lead to less than-optimal results while using dentures.

Wearing your dentures to bed is a bad idea for a variety of reasons, regardless of the kind you have. Dentures should be taken out every night before bed to prevent the growth of germs in the mouth, gum disease, and the weakening of the jawbone.

You must keep your dentures clean. To reduce the amount of plaque that accumulates on your dentures, you should clean them daily. You may clean it in the sink with a gentle toothbrush, some water, soap, or denture paste. In addition, you should sometimes use effervescent pills to give them a thorough rinsing.
