Full and Partial Denture

Dentures are replacements for missing teeth that can be taken out and put back into your mouth. There are two main types of dentures: full and partial. Dr. Geeta will help you choose the type of denture that's best for you based on whether some or all of your teeth are going to be replaced and the cost involved.

With full dentures, a flesh-colored acrylic base fits over your gums. The base of the upper denture covers the palate (the roof of your mouth), while that of the lower denture is shaped like a horseshoe to accommodate your tongue.

Dentures are custom-made in a dental laboratory from impressions taken of your mouth. Dr. Geeta will determine which of the three types of dentures described below is best for you.


Conventional Denture

A conventional full denture is placed in your mouth after any remaining teeth are removed and tissues have healed. Healing may take several months, during which time you are without teeth.


Immediate Full Denture

An immediate full denture is inserted immediately after the remaining teeth are removed. Dr. Geeta takes measurements and makes models of your jaw during a prior visit. While immediate dentures offer the benefit of never having to be without your teeth, they must be relined several months after being inserted. The reason is that the bone supporting the teeth reshapes as it heals, causing the denture to become loose.


Partial Denture

A partial denture rests on a metal framework that attaches to your natural teeth. Sometimes crowns are placed on some of your natural teeth and serve as anchors for the denture. Partial dentures offer a removable alternative to bridges.


How Long Before I Get Used to My Dentures?

New dentures may feel awkward or uncomfortable for the first few weeks or even months. Eating and speaking with dentures might take a little practice. A bulky or loose feeling is not uncommon, while the muscles of your cheeks and tongue learn to hold your dentures in place. If you experience irritation, see Dr. Geeta.


How long do Dentures Last?

Over a period of time, your denture will need to be relined, remade, or rebased due to normal wear. Also, as you age, your mouth naturally changes. These changes cause your dentures to loosen, making chewing difficult and irritating your gums. At a minimum, you should see Dr. Geeta annually for a checkup.


Tips for caring your dentures
  • When handling your dentures, stand over a folded towel or basin of water. Dentures are delicate and may break if dropped.
  • Don't let your dentures dry out. Place them in a denture cleanser soaking solution or in plain water when you're not wearing them. Never use hot water, which can cause them to warp.
  • Brushing your dentures daily will remove food deposits and plaque, and help prevent them from becoming stained. An ultrasonic cleaner may be used to care for your dentures, but it does not replace a thorough daily brushing.
  • Brush your gums, tongue and palate every morning with a soft-bristled brush before you insert your dentures. This stimulates circulation in your tissues and helps remove plaque.
  • See Dr. Geeta if your dentures break, chip, crack or become loose. Don't be tempted to adjust them yourself this can damage them beyond repair.

The replica watches uk and hour markers are bi faceted, which should provide a play of light and some visual interest on the replica watches sale sandblasted platinum dial. Too often manufacturers compromise legibility with hands that are just a tad too short or too long, a minor qualm rolex submariner replica more aesthetic than practical in nature.
