Complete Dentures

Complete Dentures

A complete denture is a removable appliance used when all teeth within a jaw have been lost and need to be prosthetically replaced.In contrast to a partial denture, a complete denture is constructed when there are no more teeth left in an arch.

Dentures are an efficient and cost-effective option for replacing missing teeth. Today’s dentures come in a variety of designs to fit your lifestyle, budget and aesthetic goals.

Types of dentures

Full Dentures-Sometimes referred to as”‘plates,” dentures restore all of the teeth in your upper or lower arch at one time. They’re used when you no longer have any natural teeth in your jaw. The customised prosthesis will rest directly against your gum tissues, so an accurate fit is essential.

Partial Dentures-Partials replace several teeth at a time while allowing you to preserve the natural teeth that you still have. A partial will wrap around your smile to fill in the spaces where your teeth are missing. Alternatives to a partial denture would be something along the lines of a fixed bridge or dental implants.

Denture design

Full and partial dentures can be made from an acrylic base, metal framework, or a flexible acrylic known as Valplast dentures. Acrylic dentures are typically reserved for full-arch prosthetics, while chrome and flexible options are most common in partials.

Denture daily care

Make a point to clean your denture each day like you would your own teeth. Remove it regularly to brush and rinse it clean and always take it out at night while you’re sleeping. If maintained properly, a denture can last for quite a few years.

If your denture rubs, feels uncomfortable or starts to seem loose, it may be time to have it updated or relined.
