There are many reasons for people to get dentures. These can include tooth decay, gum disease, trauma to the teeth, or old age can all result in tooth loss. If only one or two teeth need replacing, dental implants are the preferred options. However, for multiple teeth that are in need of replacement, dentures are often a better choice than implants.
Dentures can create a more vibrant smile by replacing badly broken or decayed teeth. They can also provide other cosmetic effects such as bringing fullness back into the face. When you lose all of your teeth, it causes the muscles in the face to sag. The application of dentures will fill out your face to give it a more natural look. Dentures can also be made to solve such issues like crooked teeth, or have the same effect as tooth whitening.
Traditionally there are three different types of dentures used by dentists. These include: conventional, immediate, and overdentures. The conventional dentures are removable. This style of denture will not be placed until several months after your teeth have been extracted and healing has taken place. Immediate dentures are inserted on the same day as your surgery. There are some instances where immediate dentures will need to be modified or remade at a later date. When some of your teeth can be saved, an overdenture will be a good option. These dentures can fit over a small number of remaining teeth for a natural look.
Good oral hygiene habits should continue to be practiced when you have dentures. Because plaque can develop on your gums, they should be brushed with care along with the tongue and roof of your mouth. This should be done every morning before you put your dentures in. Brushing should also take place directly on the dentures to ensure you remove any loose food or debris that may be embedded in them. When you take your dentures out, they should be placed in a water-filled container with a secure lid so they aren’t damaged.
