All about Dentures

Dentures, also called dentures or false teeth, are false artificial teeth made from porcelain or composite materials that look and feel like real teeth. Have a look at Dentures for more info on this. Dental dentures help improve the appearance of your smile and may provide you with a self-esteem boost, as well as improve your ability to eat, speak and function throughout life. Most people who have missing teeth can’t wear full-face dentures because they would not be able to reach back deep enough to feed their mouths with traditional dentures, which offer only a few spaces for the teeth to rest in. However, dentures can be fixed into places where full-face dentures can’t be fixed, such as the side of the mouth.

Dentures can be fixed in different ways and can be one of two replacement options: either bridges or retainers. Bridges are false teeth that are attached to the front of the mouth so that the remaining teeth are placed over them. The bridge is secured into the bone using a metal frame, and the dentist can make adjustments to the bone of the jaw through the course of treatment to ensure that the bridge is secure and will bond properly to the bone. In order for the full effect of a bridge to be maximized, the jaw should be aligned so that the bridge will be fixed on top of teeth that already have a partial denture. Partial dentures, when removed, will not allow the dentures to sit properly on the remaining teeth.

Retainers are similar to dentures, but instead of covering the remaining teeth in place, they are fastened to the jaw using retainer. Patients with missing teeth can use retainer for self-contained oral care. The dentist will prepare retainer in your office according to your instructions and place it over your teeth. The dentist can adjust retainer to cover more teeth as needed and may also reshape or change the shape to match the remaining teeth in the mouth. Dentures and retainer are most often used together to address a wide variety of dental issues.
