In order to accommodate full dentures, all teeth must be removed. After pulling the teeth, the gums need time to heal and shrink back to their permanent shape. The duration of this waiting period varies from patient to patient and depends on the number of teeth being removed. Partially removable dentures require only the removal of some teeth. The type of dentures the patient needs will determine the outcome.
A full recovery typically takes between four and six weeks. An impression of the mouth will be taken at this point by your dentist. Dentures are created using this impression as a guide.
It is possible to replace a missing tooth with a “false” or artificial tooth as an adult. It may cause your other teeth to shift if you do not replace it. Taking care of your dentures is just as important as taking care of your natural teeth. You can extend the life of your dentures and make them fit better if you properly care for them. Dental implants, partial dentures, fixed bridges, and complete dentures are the four main types of dentures.
There are two or more false teeth that are held between healthy teeth on both sides of a fixed bridge (or fixed partial denture). This type of bridge is impossible to remove on your own.
Dentures that are removable (or partial dentures) consist of one or more false teeth that are attached to nearby healthy teeth via clasps. If you need to clean them or take them out at night, you can do so yourself.
A complete denture can completely replace all of your natural teeth in the event that you lose them.
False teeth and fixed bridges are supported by dental implants. In order for an implant to be successful, you must have healthy gums and bone (under your teeth). In order to put a small metal post into your jawbone, your dentist (or oral surgeon) needs to drill a hole in it. As the post integrates with the surrounding bone, it will become stronger. One or more false teeth will be attached to the post (or implant) using an anchor.
The purpose of dentures will be determined by to what extent they replace your natural teeth. The gums fit snugly over full dentures, which replace all your natural teeth. In addition to improving your confidence and self-esteem, they will assist you in eating comfortably and speaking clearly. The partial dentures replace missing teeth and can sometimes be supported by your remaining teeth. Having gaps between your teeth can result in crooked or tilted teeth if your other teeth move into the space. As a result, your bite could be affected and your other teeth could be damaged.
A close fit between the dentures and the underlying gum as well as bone tissue keeps dentures in place. Keeping this oral health device in place is helped by the layer of saliva between the gums and the denture. A larger surface area means a stronger seal. It is for this reason that upper dentures have relatively few problems.
Due to a smaller surface area, overdentures are typically designed for the lower jaw since there is less suction on the bottom. The roots of natural teeth are connected to overdentures.
To hold partial dentures firmly in place, clasps wrap around the teeth’s roots. The purpose of partial dentures is to replace missing teeth by attaching artificial teeth to natural teeth. Since the remaining natural teeth in the mouth have roots, partial dentures will likely prove to be more stable than complete dentures. The patient can also connect dentures to dental implants if he or she is missing a tooth.
