Missing teeth can complicate chewing of food, your pronunciation of some words and deface your facial appearance. Dentures are a perfect solution for such problems. Essentially, different types of dentures are designed to cater to a patient’s specific needs.
Types of Dentures
Temporary Dentures: When you undergo tooth removal surgery, several months are needed for your jawbone and gums to heal and recover fully. To help stabilize your jaws, your dentist could use a temporary or immediate dentures made from plastic to seal the gap. When the jaws have stabilized, a bridge or long-term dentures can then be fitted into the gap.
Partial Dentures: Partial dentures can be used as a replacement in cases where one or more teeth are missing. This type features metal clasps that are attached to the natural teeth for support. The metal clasps can be concealed and made invisible when you smile or talk when necessary.
Full dentures: These dentures are necessary in cases where a patient’s upper or lower teeth are all missing. The teeth are usually made of plastic and attached to a plastic frame. An ultra thin layer of saliva creates suction between the mouth’s roof or palate and the dentures. This suction in addition to your facial muscles and tongue are what secure the dentures into place.
