Types of dentures and their advantages

Not only can your self-esteem be impacted from missing or lost teeth, but the process of getting dentures requires the right knowledge and skills from an experienced team, making it a very daunting experience. There are many factors to take into consideration to ensure that you get the right dentures for you and your needs, as well as getting dentures that are the right fit.

Dentures are a specialised dental solution to missing teeth that blend in with the surrounding tissue. There are a few types of dentures to choose from to ensure that you have the best fit for you and your lifestyle.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures can be beneficial to replace one singular tooth, or even multiple teeth in your mouth. Partial dentures are useful for when there are still natural teeth present, and are often used on younger patients who have a loss of teeth due to injuries, or a certain types of gum disease that has caused them to have dental extractions. These partial dentures are also useful for older patients who have lost their natural teeth due to natural wear and tear or injuries.

The assistance of clips may be required to secure them into your mouth and ensures that it is seamless with your existing teeth. These clips are made to be extremely discrete and remain almost invisible. Partial dentures also have the added benefit of maintaining the alignment of your teeth.

Complete Dentures

Complete, or full dentures, are used when all of the patient’s teeth are missing from either the upper or lower jaw. They are made to mimic your natural teeth and replicate your smile as much as possible. Although, there are exceptions, this option is commonly used by older patients. These dentures are custom made once the teeth have been removed and the gum has completely healed. During the adjustment period, the dentures may need to stay in the mouth overnight.

This type of denture has a few different variations that can be used under this branch of dentures, depending on your circumstances. These include conventional dentures and immediate dentures.

Conventional dentures are those that can be made and ready to place into a patient’s mouth after their teeth have been removed for 3 months.

Immediate dentures, however, are prepared in advance so that so they can be inserted into the patient’s mouth as soon as the dental extractions take place. This option can be extremely beneficial as there is no time to stay without teeth during the healing period. As the gums need time for the healing process to be completed, gums and bones tend to shrink over time and thus these dentures call for regular adjustments, especially in the first few months of the healing process. These immediate dentures are often used as a temporary solution to having missing teeth whilst the conventional dentures are being made.

It is important to note that dentures require more attention than regular teeth. They need to be cleaned at least once per day by removing them and washing them with a cleaner and brush. All of the surfaces of the dentures, including the plastic base and clips, need to be thoroughly cleaned to ensure that they last as long as possible.
