Service Description

Dentures are prosthetic devices constructed to replace missing teeth. Conventional dentures are removable. Multiple Sessions Required. Learn more about dentures below: 1. What Are Dentures? Dentures are removable dental appliances designed to replace missing teeth and the surrounding gum tissue. They can be classified into two main types: complete dentures, which are used when all natural teeth are missing, and partial dentures, which are used when some natural teeth are still present. 2. How Are Dentures Made? First, your dentist will take detailed impressions of your mouth to create a custom-fit denture that matches the shape and contours of your gums and any remaining natural teeth. Once the impressions are ready, a dental lab will fabricate your dentures using high-quality materials. After completion, your dentist will ensure the fit is comfortable and make any necessary adjustments. 3. How Do I Care for Dentures? Proper denture care is essential to maintain their function and longevity. Remove and rinse your dentures teeth after eating, clean them daily with a denture brush and mild soap or denture cleaner, and store them in a denture solution or water overnight to prevent them from drying out. Regular dental check-ups are crucial to check the fit and make any adjustments. ​ 4. Are There Alternatives to Traditional Dentures? Yes, modern dentistry offers alternatives like implant-supported dentures. Dental implants are surgically placed in the jawbone, providing a more stable and secure foundation for the denture. This option offers increased comfort and chewing efficiency. 5. How Long Do Dentures Last? The lifespan of dentures can vary, but on average, they last 5-7 years. Over time, changes in your mouth's shape may require adjustments or a new set of dentures for an optimal fit and function.
