What Are Dentures?

Dentures are removable replacement teeth crafted from acrylic, resin, nylon, metal, or a combination of these materials. They fit snugly over your gums and replicate the appearance and function of natural teeth. Dentures replace missing teeth and surrounding tissues, restoring your smile and improving your ability to eat, speak, and maintain facial structure.

Types of Dentures

Complete Dentures

Full dentures are designed to replace all teeth in your upper or lower jaw or even both jaws if necessary. They’re ideal for patients who have lost all their teeth in a particular arch. Complete dentures typically rely on suction to stay in place, and some dentures may incorporate denture adhesive for enhanced stability.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures fill gaps created by missing teeth when you still have some natural teeth remaining in your jaw. These dentures consist of a metal framework that supports replacement teeth and clasps that securely attach to your natural teeth. This clasp system provides stability and keeps artificial teeth in the partial denture comfortably in place. Partial dentures offer a significant advantage over complete dentures by preserving your natural teeth and leveraging them for support.

  • Restored Appearance & Confidence: Dentures replace missing teeth, restoring your smile and enhancing facial contours. This can significantly boost your confidence and self-esteem when interacting with others.
  • Improved Chewing & Speech: Dentures allow you to chew food more effectively, promoting better digestion and a wider variety of dietary options. They also help improve speech clarity by filling the gaps left by missing teeth.
  • Increased Comfort: Modern dentures are designed for comfort and stability. They’re lightweight and fit securely to your gums, minimizing discomfort and irritation.
  • Affordable Tooth Replacement: Rather than other tooth replacement options like dental implants, dentures are a more cost-effective solution.
  • Easy Maintenance: Dentures are removable, allowing for convenient cleaning and maintenance. With proper care and regular dental checkups, dentures can last for several years.

Candidacy for Dentures

Dentures aren’t a one-size-fits-all solution, and a consultation with your dentist is crucial to determine if they’re the right option for you. Here are some factors your dentist will consider:

  • Jawbone and Gum Health: Adequate jawbone and gum tissue are essential for supporting dentures and ensuring a comfortable, secure fit. If your jawbone or gums are weak or require treatment, your dentist might recommend procedures to strengthen them before proceeding with dentures.
  • Your Needs and Preferences: Discuss your reasons for considering dentures, your lifestyle, and your expectations. This will help your dentist understand your priorities and recommend the most suitable type of denture.
  • Overall Oral Health: A thorough dental examination will assess your oral health for any underlying issues that might need to be addressed before denture placement.

Receiving Your Custom Denture Fixture

Middle-aged man smilingThe denture creation process typically involves multiple appointments. Here’s a general overview:

  1. Initial Consultation & Impressions: During your initial consultation, Dr. Charara will discuss your candidacy, answer your questions, and take impressions of your mouth and jaw.
  2. Trying-in Dentures: After the dentures are crafted based on the impressions, you’ll have a fitting appointment to assess the fit, color, and bite. Adjustments can be made at this stage.
  3. Final Denture Placement: Once you’re satisfied with the fit and appearance, Dr. Charara will place the final dentures and provide instructions for care and maintenance.

Caring for Your Dentures

Maintaining your dentures is vital for their longevity and oral health. Here are some key practices:

  • Regular Cleaning: Remove and rinse your dentures after every meal to remove food particles. Daily brushing with a soft-bristled brush and non-abrasive denture cleanser is essential.
  • Soaking: Soak your dentures overnight in water or a denture cleaning solution to keep them moist and prevent them from warping.
  • Cleaning Your Mouth: Even with dentures, it’s important to maintain good oral hygiene by brushing your tongue and gums with a soft-bristled toothbrush or using a moistened gauze pad.
  • Regular Dental Checkups: Schedule regular dental checkups for professional cleanings and adjustments to ensure your dentures continue to fit properly.
