Dentures are consists as a removable replacement of missing teeth and surrounding tissues. There are two types of dentures:
Complete dentures can be made either ‘ conventional’ or ‘ Immediate’ dentures. Conventional dentures are usually placed in the mouth 8-10 weeks post extract of the teeth. Unlike conventional dentures, Immediate dentures are made in advance and placed in the mouth immediately after extraction. Hence the wearer does not have to be teeth- free during the healing period.
Partial dentures consist of replacement teeth and gum- coloured base which is supported by a metal framework that holds the denture in the mouth. A partial denture replaces the missing teeth and also prevents the change of position of other neighbouring teeth.
Dental implants are definitely the ideal alternative to dentures as they very closely resemble the feel of natural teeth.
Dentures are fabricated to resemble the natural teeth and even improve your general smile and facial appearance.
Initially the dentures are worn for a long period of time , so we can identify the areas on the dentures that need adjustment. Once the adjustments are made , you can remove your dentures at night time. This allows your gum tissues to rest and your dentures can be inserted in your mouth the next morning.
Denture adhesive increases retention, stability and the wearer’s sense of security with the new denture. It is useful for people suffering with dry mouth , taking long term medications, neurological disabilities and the elderly. Denture adhesives are also useful for people with unusual demands on facial muscles – for example: public speakers and musicians.
New dentures can feel loose for the first few weeks until the muscles in your mouth adapt to keep the denture in place. The patient should also feel comfortable inserting and removing the dentures at ease. It also common to have mild irritation during the initial few weeks but these problems will soon fade away as the patient gets adapted to the new denture.
It is always advisable to start with soft foods with new dentures until the wearer feels comfortable. It is advised to chew slowly using both sides of the mouth. As you get used to your denture, you can start your normal diet. Make sure to be cautious with hot, hard, sticky or food containing sharp- edged bones or shells.
Initially there may be difficulty pronouncing certain words but by regular practice you can slowly get used to your new dentures.
