It becomes very complicated for any person when they have missing teeth. Chewing is severely affected by missing teeth. If the front teeth are missing then it affects the smile and ability to speak clearly.
Here, a person can have missing teeth due to any reasons like injury, decayed teeth, unavoidable teeth removal, etc.
Dentures are removable dental appliances used to replace missing teeth and the surrounding tissues. They are designed to restore a person’s ability to eat, speak, and smile when they have lost some or all of their natural teeth.
Dentures are typically made from acrylic resin or a combination of acrylic and metal.
What are various types of Dentures?
Here are various types of Dentures treatment options:
Full Dentures (Complete Dentures)
When all the natural teeth are missing, full dentures treatment is used. They consist of a full set of artificial teeth mounted on an acrylic base that matches the color of the gums.
Partial dentures are used when some natural teeth are still present in the mouth. They consist of one or more artificial teeth attached to a metal or acrylic framework.
Dental implants are surgically placed in the jawbone, and the dentures are then attached to these implants. With implant-supported dentures, a better security and stability is achieved.
Immediate dentures are placed in the mouth immediately after the extraction of natural teeth. They are a temporary solution while the mouth heals, and adjustments may be necessary as the gums and bone reshape.
Overdentures are used mostly when a small number of natural teeth are missing. They provide increased stability compared to conventional full dentures and are often used when preserving some natural teeth.
These are removable dentures that can snap onto dental implants or attachments in the mouth. They offer improved stability and can be easily removed for cleaning.
Flexible dentures are made from a flexible material (usually nylon) that provides a more comfortable and natural fit. They are often used for partial dentures and can be a good option for people who are allergic to acrylic or have sensitive gums.
You can use any of these types of Dentures solution as per Dental expert’s suggestion and your choice.
