If you have lost some or all of your natural teeth, dentures can be used to replace your missing teeth – improving your health as well as your appearance. Dentures help prevent the sagging of facial muscles and give you a youthful look. Dentures also enable you to eat and speak properly, little things that are often taken for granted until natural teeth are lost.
In order to receive full dentures, your dentist may possibly need to remove any remaining teeth in your mouth. Your gums will need time to heal before conventional full dentures can be worn safely and comfortably. Your full dentures are made in a lab to custom fit your mouth for a perfect fit and you will receive a temporary set of dentures while the healing takes place.
These are mostly used if you are missing a tooth or a few teeth in a row. They use your healthy remaining teeth as support and a framework is then built for the denture to attach to.
If you currently have dentures be sure to brush your gums, tongue, and palate every morning with a soft-bristled brush to stimulate circulation in your tissues and to help remove plaque before you insert your dentures. Regular dental checkups are highly recommended to allow the dentist to perform an oral cancer screening and examine the dentures to ensure they fit comfortably.
