Dentures are a great substitution for missing teeth and tissue. Dentures have grown dramatically over the years thanks to advances in dental technology. Today, dentures can be personally customized for any mouth, allowing a more secure, tighter fit. Also, dentures are able to maintain a natural, real look that would fool any of your friends and family. In other words, they wouldn’t even know you had dentures unless you told them.
Two Types of Dentures
There are two types of dentures that people can choose from: complete (also known as full) or partial dentures. Partial dentures are a convenient option for those who still have a portion of their natural teeth. Partial dentures are carefully crafted to fit around the natural teeth you still have. It’s similar to the way dental bridges are made. Partial dentures help restore normal function to your mouth, including bite and structure.
Complete, or full, dentures replace every tooth in your mouth. These are a great option when a large majority of teeth have succumbed to tooth decay or if you have several missing teeth. Complete dentures give you a full set of teeth that can be used to carry out necessary oral tasks such as eating and drinking. Complete dentures are specifically crafted to your mouth so that you leave the office feeling comfortable and smiling with a new set of functioning teeth that also happen to look incredibly realistic.
Let Ganji Dental Help
Dr. Ganji will help you select the best choice of dentures through a thorough consultation. You may need to have certain remaining teeth extracted if a complete set is chosen. Immediate dentures are often made before this takes place so that you have a set of teeth to use before you receive a final adjustment.
Once you receive a new, shiny set of dentures, the only thing required is regular oral maintenance – the same routine that was necessary for your real teeth: brushing and flossing regularly, on top of visiting your dentist for a dental checkup to check for gum health and to make sure your fit is still secure.
