Dentures (also known as false teeth) are prosthetic devices constructed to replace missing teeth, and are supported by the surrounding soft and hard tissues of the oral cavity. Conventional dentures are removable (removable partial denture or complete denture). However, there are many denture designs, some which rely on bonding or clasping onto teeth or dental implants (fixed prosthodontics). There are two main categories of dentures, the distinction being whether they are used to replace missing teeth on the mandibular arch or on the maxillary arch.
Dentures and Partial
If you have lost some or all of your natural teeth, dentures can be used to replace your missing teeth – improving your health as well as your appearance. Dentures prevent the sagging of facial muscles, which can make a person with missing teeth look much older. Dentures also enable you to eat and speak normally, little things often taken for granted until natural teeth are lost.
Every morning before you insert your dentures, brush your gums, tongue, and palate with a soft-bristled brush to stimulate circulation in your tissues and to help remove plaque. Regular dental checkups are needed so we can examine your mouth and dentures to ensure a healthy and comfortable fit.
At All Family Dental Care, we offer a wide range of denture and partial options to help our patients get the most out of their dental care. Dentures are artificial teeth and gums that replace missing teeth and can be used to restore the smile of someone who has lost their natural teeth due to age, tooth decay, infection, or injury. Partials are used to replace one or more missing teeth, but unlike dentures, partials fit securely into the existing teeth framework and can be taken in and out for ease of cleaning.
What are dentures?
Dentures are removable false teeth made of acrylic and other materials. They replace missing teeth and can be used to restore the smile, improve chewing ability and reduce speech impediments caused by missing teeth. Dentures come in two types – complete dentures and partial dentures. Full dentures are used when all the natural teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when only some teeth are missing.
What are partials?
Partials replace one or more missing teeth and fit into an existing framework of natural teeth. They are held in place by metal clasps, which attach to the existing teeth, while acrylic or other materials fill any spaces between the partial and the natural teeth. With partials, patients can still eat and speak normally without worrying about the partial slipping out of place.
