What Are Dentures?
Dentures are false teeth used to replace broken or missing teeth. Dentures fitted in denture wearers are held in place by a denture adhesive. They make it simple for you to eat, speak, and smile. You can take them out to clean or fix them anytime.
The two primary varieties of dentures are complete dentures and partial dentures. Your oral health and general dental needs will determine which denture choice is ideal for you.
Benefits Of Dentures
There are numerous benefits of dentures. Some of them include:
- Eating: increased force during chewing.
- Aesthetics: They give your face a natural-looking appearance by supporting your lips and cheeks and preventing the deflated formation that results from tooth loss.
- Phonetics: Replacing missing teeth, particularly the front teeth, improves speech by making it simpler to pronounce words.
- Self-esteem: Dentures will make you feel better about yourself.
Types Of Dentures
Complete dentures and partial dentures are the two types of dentures. Complete dentures are worn when all-natural teeth have fallen out. Partial dentures come in handy when some natural teeth are missing.
Complete dentures are dental implants created after the teeth have been removed, and the gums have begun to recover. After the teeth are extracted, it takes eight to twelve weeks before a full denture may be inserted.
Some forms of complete dentures, known as instant dentures, differ from typical complete dentures as they are fitted immediately after the teeth are extracted and produced in advance (immediately after teeth extraction). Consequently, you won’t need to go without teeth when your gums recover.
Immediate dentures need relining immediately after the gums have healed and receded. However, they can require more than one reline in the first year and might even need to be replaced, depending on how much each person’s jawline shrinks.
Removable partial dentures require the same level of maintenance as complete dentures, if not more. Typically, replacement teeth are secured to a pink/gum-coloured plastic base to create partial dentures. Dentists occasionally use a metal framework to secure the denture in the mouth. If there are more natural teeth still present in the upper or lower jaw; in that case, partial dentures are used. A fixed bridge replaces at least one missing tooth by placing crowns on the teeth on either side of the gap and affixing fake teeth to them. This bridge is then secured in position.
By distributing pressure more equally across natural teeth and other supporting structures in the mouth, partial dentures assist in stabilising and protecting the remaining teeth by relieving stress on isolated teeth. In other words, a partial denture prevents the movement of other teeth in addition to filling in the voids left by missing teeth. Using a partial denture is a less expensive approach to replacing multiple teeth.
Your partial dentures’ fit, maintenance, and cleanliness will affect how successfully your natural teeth erupt. Food particles might become trapped under partial dentures, harming your natural teeth. You should remove your denture to remove the food particles left after eating. The easiest way to clean your dentures is to brush your dentures, use denture cleansers, or clean in a soaking solution.

With a chewy steak in your mouth, your dentures may become loose or uncomfortable in certain areas. Just chop up your steak into small pieces instead of completely giving it up.
Same-day dentures, commonly called immediate dentures, are inserted into the mouth as soon as a tooth is extracted. As a result, they can significantly improve how natural toothless people feel about themselves by repairing any gaps left by missing or extracted teeth.
You will be given a complete denture if you have tooth decay, need to have all your upper or lower teeth extracted, or if your outdated complete denture has to be replaced. You won’t remain toothless for long because the denture is often fitted immediately after your teeth are extracted.
