Information on Dental Dentures

Dentures are commonly referred to as false teeth. They are generally made of plastic and replace your missing teeth. Most people assume that with age you are bound to lose teeth. However by practicing good oral hygiene and routine visits to your local dentist the odds of keeping your original teeth are much greater. On the other hand, you can begin to lose teeth at a young age if you do not take care of them. Regardless, dental dentures are a solution if you have lost your teeth and want a solution to the challenges of missing teeth such as chewing as well as the esthetics of your smile. If you have remaining healthy teeth you will want to keep. Your dentist will always promote keeping as many natural teeth as possible. This will allow for partial dentures to be used.

Different types of Dental Dentures

The two basic types of dentures are partial and full. As the names suggest, full dentures are for those who have lost all of their teeth. However, to give these dentures the necessary support, mini dental implants are often used. These dental implants are used to stabilize the denture for both fixed in place and removable full or partial dentures.

Full Dentures:

Full dentures can be used on the upper or lower jaw. These dentures will rest either on the gums or be secured with dental implants. Different people have different shapes and features of their mouth and therefore, the complete dentures have to be custom made. With the advancements in dentistry this process is faster and more affordable than ever before. In the first visit, the dentist will take a detailed impression of your mouth or perform a scan. Once your dentist has discussed your options with you your dentures will be made and fitted.

After your complete denture has been fitted, it may take some time for the patient to get used to chewing and other natural activities. However, this is not always the case. Often times you can go about eating the foods you love and not worry about smiling and laughing in public. Full denture stabilization with mini dental implants offers a permanent solution for your missing teeth. Because the dentures are secured by the implants there is no need for messy adhesives.

Partial Dentures:

This type of denture is also removable. Partial Dentures generally have a metal framework that holds the teeth to the gums. Aside from removable dentures, the fixed partial dentures or bridges are also available. Your best option however will be mini dental implants to stabilize your dentures. They resemble your natural teeth and will last from 10 – 15 years depending on how well you care for them. With the introduction of mini implants for denture stabilization it is unnecessary to use existing teeth for support. The implants will bear the load of the dentures and act as standalone support.
