When all of the teeth are lost for a variety of reasons ( decay, disease, poor oral care, fear of dentistry, periodontal disease, financial reason) , one of the recommended treatments available is a removable complete denture. There are a variety of natural-looking and comfortable dentures for patients who need to replace missing teeth. Made of a gum-colored plastic resin or acrylic base and either resin or porcelain replacement teeth. dentures are custom designed to fit your mouth. If you have several teeth or all teeth missing on the upper or lower jaw, full dentures may be your best option. Partial dentures, which can be either fixed or removable, are great for patients who have several missing teeth scattered along the upper or lower jaw.
The process of getting dentures may take a few months if the teeth need extractions and includes a set of several dental visits.
Just as with your natural teeth, dentures require daily maintenance. With regular wear and tear, your dentures can last 5-7 years. During that time, you may need periodic denture relines to accommodate changes in the contours of your mouth. Regular denture relines involve resurfacing the base to ensure that your dentures fit and function perfectly. If you break your dentures, it's critical to bring them to your dentist for professional denture repair if possible. Home denture repair kits can cause more damage and be even more costly to fix.
Advancement in the field of implant dentistry is giving the dentist and the patients many different options of replacing a few or all missing teeth using fixed, hybrid, to implant supported complete removable denture appliances.
