Are you missing more than one tooth? Does it affect your lifestyle, diet, and even your self-confidence? It’s impossible to grow new teeth to replace the permanent teeth that you lose, that’s why patients and dentists have turned to dentures.
Modern dentures have been a standard dental restoration for missing teeth since the early 20th century. The materials used for these prosthetics include acrylic, various types of plastic, and porcelain for the tooth crowns.
Dentures are fabricated based on the number of missing teeth you have. Full dentures are made for completely edentulous (toothless) individuals, while partial dentures are made for those who still have a few healthy teeth left, but need to fill in the gaps.
If you are already completely edentulous and you would like to get full dentures, traditional dentures may be an option. These are made to fit over your gums perfectly and provide good aesthetics and function.
Traditional full dentures are also available for patients who still have a few missing teeth but are planning to get them extracted. If you only have a couple of teeth left or your existing teeth are all damaged, your dentist may recommend that they be extracted and replaced with dentures.
If you decide to go with the extraction of your remaining teeth the gums will be given a few months to heal. Impressions will then be taken during the healing phase, and the molds used to fabricate your new denture. It’s important to wait until healing is complete to ensure accurate size and fit of your denture. Once the dentures are ready, you will be called back for placement and any adjustments will be made to ensure a comfortable and proper fit.
If you still have plenty of healthy teeth and you don’t want to get them extracted, you can opt for partial dentures. These are different than full dentures because their framework is made toaccommodate the existing teeth.
Some partial dentures have metal clasps that lock into your real teeth to stay in place, while others also have acrylic gum bases that allow them to fit over your real teeth. Our dentist Dr. Karanvir Sibia, DDS, will explain all possible options to help you decide what’s best for your current dental condition.
