Dentures are prosthetic dental devices designed to replace missing teeth. Dentures can either be partial dentures, which replace a few missing teeth, or complete dentures, which replace all of the teeth in one jaw. Partial dentures are a good idea when a few teeth are missing, because they keep the remaining teeth in their proper place. If there is a space where no teeth are present, the teeth may shift out of their correct positions.

Dentures are a replacement for missing teeth that can be removed and put back into your mouth as you please. Depending on each individual patient case, they may receive full or partial dentures. Full dentures are used when all of the natural teeth are removed from the mouth and replaced with a full set of dentures.

There are two types of full dentures:

  • Conventional Full Dentures

  • Immediate Full Dentures

  • Partial Dentures

Even though dentures are not real teeth, you should care for them like they are. You should brush them to remove plaque and food particles before removing your dentures. After they have been removed you should place them directly into room temperature water or a denture cleaning solution. Never use hot water because it could warp the dentures. Your dentures are delicate, so make sure you are careful when handling them so you don’t drop them. Also, never try to adjust your dentures yourself. You could ruin them, so you should always seek assistance from your dentist if they feel uncomfortable or loose.
One of the things that patients with dentures may experience is increased salivation. Some mouth soreness and speech changes are possible as a patient gets used to their new dentures. These problems go away over time, especially if the dentures are properly fit.
Most sets of dentures last a long time, but they may need to be replaced or repaired if they are damaged acutely or over time.
