DENTURES
A denture or a complete denture as it is often
called, is an appliance that is inserted in the
mouth, replaces natural teeth and provides
support for the cheeks and lips.
3
How dentures are made?
Most dentures are made of acrylic and can be
fabricated two different ways.
A conventional denture is made after all teeth
have been extracted and the tissues (gums) have
healed.
An immediate denture is fabricated and inserted
immediately after the teeth are extracted and the
tissues are allowed to heal under the denture.
An upper denture has acrylic, usually flesh
colored, that covers the palate (roof of the
mouth).
A lower denture is shaped like a horseshoe to
leave room for the tongue.

Continue..
The teeth are made of plastic, porcelain or a
combination of both. Dentures can be fabricated
to fit over endodontically treated teeth and a
complete denture can be attached to dental
implants to allow for a more secure fit of the
appliance.
Dentures over a normal course of time will wear
and need to be replaced or relined in order to
keep the jaw alignment normal. The alignment will
slowly change as the bone and gum ridges recede
or shrink due to the extraction of the teeth.
Regular dental examinations are still important
for the denture wearer so that the oral tissues
can be checked for disease or change.

TYPES OF dentures
Complete Dentures Getting the Full Monty
Complete dentures can be either "conventional" or
"immediate." Made after the teeth have been
removed and the gum tissue has begun to heal, a
conventional denture is ready for placement in
the mouth about eight to 12 weeks after the teeth
have been removed.
Immediate dentures are made in advance and can be
positioned as soon as the teeth are removed. As a
result, the wearer does not have to be without
teeth during the healing period.

Partial Dentures Filling in the Gaps
Partial dentures are used to replace a few
missing teeth and fill in gaps that can interfere
with eating, speaking, and comfort. They are
anchored into place with clasps or precision
attachments, which are more natural looking, that
surround natural teeth. Natural teeth that anchor
partial dentures sometimes need to have crowns
put on them to improve the fit.

How to take care of dentures
Except for the fitting period, dentures should be
taken out each night and soaked in water or a
denture solution overnight. And just as patients
are advised to brush their teeth after each meal,
dentures require cleaning after eating. While
your dentures are still out, clean your natural
teeth, gums, and tongue with a soft toothbrush.
Dentures should be cleaned every day using a
denture brush or soft toothbrush and a denture
cleaner or mild liquid soap. Anything harsher can
damage them, including toothpaste. Be sure to
rinse your dentures before putting them back in
your mouth.
