What are Dentures?

Dentures are artificial gums and teeth that are developed as a substitute for missing or lost natural teeth. Dentures are usually in part or complete, which implies that they can either be developed to replace every tooth on either side of the gum line or simply a couple of missing teeth. Irrespective of your denture type that is required, they are usually customized to match present teeth and perfectly fit the missing teeth.

What are Dentures Made Of?

Previously, dentures used for artificial teeth were developed from plastic or porcelain but modern dentures are usually developed from hard durable resin. The materials used for developing dentures are regarded as being more fragile than the standard teeth and they can become cracked or chipped if they are not properly looked after. Denture material can also wear down easier than normal teeth which will then require replacement with a new set of dentures, anywhere from five to 10 years in the future.

Benefits of Dentures

Conserve Facial Structure

Your teeth’s bone structure has a major significance in the appearance of your face. After the loss of most or every one of your teeth, this bone structure will also be lost. This will significantly change your appearance. Your shape as well as your teeth can be restored through dentures. Dentures are usually developed to conserve the initial facial structure you had before the teeth were lost.

Confident Smile

Loss of teeth can occur over a significant period. Most people consider this to be experiencing years of self-consciousness and embarrassment concerning the state of your smile. This could comprise limited laughter, mouthed smiles and avoiding discussions. Dentures can also offer and restore your confident smile which will end your worry about hiding your teeth.

Durable

Ultimately, you might have to replace your dentures but they can be functional for about 10 plus years if they are well catered for. Ensure that your dentures are carefully handled and always use a soft brush for brushing the dentures every day. With special care and a little foresight, your dentures can last for many more years while retaining its exceptional appearance.

Low Maintenance

Considering that dentures are detachable, it makes it easy to retain proper oral hygiene with less effort. You can use a soft brush or the special denture cleanser to ensure that they are clean and free from bacteria and plaque which could cause gum disease.

Enhancement of Speech

Our tongue usually reveals our teeth to create the proper sounds whenever we create words. But individuals with missing teeth can find it hard to pronounce specific words. Dentures will be beneficial in better enunciating your words and restore your normal way of speaking.

Freedom to Splurge Your Consumption

The loss of multiple or all of your teeth can significantly limit the food you can enjoy. A significant benefit of dentures is that you can continue to eat your normal meals. Properly fitted dentures can be beneficial in consuming your preferred meal without feeling frustrated or discomfort and pain.

Affordable

Dentures are usually available in complete sets for people suffering from high tooth loss and partial dentures for individuals who’ve lost a couple of teeth. Both ways, the denture is an affordable treatment alternative, especially with the presence of more natural teeth. Dentures are very easy to use, and an affordable option for retaining and restoring your smile and beauty, particularly if you are consistent about ensuring the care work is done so your denture will continue to look great.

Personalized According to your Requirements

Dentists customize dentures to become perfectly fit to promote comfortability. This implies that you are able to have your normal eating and consumption habits without any feeling of discomfort. Then, the dentist collects the impression of your mouth and develops a precise replica of your natural teeth. As your jawbone continues to change, the dentist can develop a personalized pair of dentures.

Second Step: Teeth Occlusion

Wax rims are positioned in your mouth to set up an appropriate bite and orientation (occlusion) of the teeth. Patients are then allowed to choose the shape, size, and color of the teeth that will be used for the denture. You can also allow your dentist or a familiar person to make this selection. The impression together with your choice of shape and size will then be sent to a dental laboratory for creation of denture.

Third Step: Testing the Mock-Up Denture

This step is very important in the denture process. A model of the denture will be sent by the dental lab consisting of a set made in wax, a set of pre-designed plastic teeth to ensure that you love the color, shape, fit and appearance of the denture. Extra appointments might be required if modifications are needed. After you are fully satisfied with the final product, the try-in denture will then be returned for the development of the final denture.

We at the City Dental Clinic will always guarantee that you are happy with your final denture and ensure that it appears and feels very natural. Since this decision is final and important, we strongly recommend that you come with someone or a spouse who is very familiar with you and will provide honest feedback concerning the appearance of the denture which will enable you to confidently make your decision.
