Dentures are a tooth-replacement option that uses synthetic teeth to restore your smile. Some systems are secured in place using several dental implants. The most common type of dentures, however, are called removable dentures, which fit securely over the surface of your gum tissue.
A full set of dentures replace all of your natural teeth. You may need to have any remaining teeth extracted before moving forward with full dentures.
Partial dentures only replace some of your teeth and are shaped to fit around your healthy natural teeth. They are a great way to give your natural teeth support, which can prevent additional tooth loss.
Both full and partial dentures are crafted to look like natural teeth, with subtle variations in shade and shape.
Affordability is a primary benefit of removable dentures as compared to other tooth-replacement options. It’s important to understand, however, that even the best set of dentures will eventually need to be repaired or replaced, so be sure to factor those expenses in when weighing your options.
Many people with missing teeth find it challenging to eat a wide variety of foods. They often limit their diet, which can cause problems with overall health and wellness. Today’s dentures are comfortable and easy to wear, allowing you to enjoy all kinds of foods, including chewy or hard foods.
Removable dentures can also make you far more confident in your appearance. They prevent your lips from folding inward toward your gums and restore a normal lower facial appearance. Dentures can make it easier to speak normally as well, helping you feel more comfortable talking with others.
While your dentures are not subject to decay, it’s still important to clean them properly each day. Food particles, plaque, and debris can accumulate on your dentures, leading to bad breath and possibly causing problems with your gum tissue.
Remove your dentures to give them a thorough brushing, and if you leave them out during sleep, use a special denture solution to soak them overnight. While dentures allow you to enjoy all kinds of food, you should avoid chewing ice or biting down on hard non-food items, which can crack or break your dentures.
If you notice changes in the way your dentures fit, schedule an appointment at Cisco Dental. Changes in your gum tissue can alter the way your dentures fit, and minor adjustments can sometimes improve the fit or comfort of full or partial dentures.
