Types of Dentures
There are various kinds of dentures available such as the conventional ones which are placed on the gum and implant-supported dentures that are surgically fixed to the jawbone for better stability and support.
Conventional Full Dentures
- They are prepared after removal of the teeth and gum tissues begin to heal
- Placed after 8-12 weeks of teeth removal
Immediate Full Dentures
- Unlike conventional dentures, these can be placed right after the teeth removal
- They are a temporary solution as jawbone shrinks during the healing process and multiple adjustments need to be made
- It consists of artificial teeth connected to plastic base that holds the denture in place in the mouth
- It is used when some natural teeth remain in the jaw
- A fixed bridge replaces the teeth and crowns are attached to the teeth
- Prevents other teeth from drifting and is removable
In addition to full and partial dentures, you may also choose from:
Implant-supported Fixed Dentures
We also offer implant supported dentures in Los Algodones which are replacement teeth supported by implants that have been surgically placed in the jawbone.
Implant-Supported Removable/Snap-on Dentures
An implant supported denture is called an over-denture. The denture stays in place with special attachments that allow the denture to “snap” into place over the dental implants.
A dental implant is a replacement tooth root topped by an artificial tooth or crown. It is surgically embedded in the jawbone and over time fuses with the bone. The implants are either supported by individual crowns or a bridge for replacing multiple missing teeth.
We also offer Prettau Implant Bridges which are a novel alternative to traditional dentures. They are highly flexible, translucent and are not abrasive to the tooth’s surface.
Process of Getting Dentures
Extractions and Evaluations
- After a careful evaluation of your teeth, and if required, your remaining teeth may be extracted to make space for dentures. Our dental professional will evaluate your oral dental health and then decide the course of treatment. Once extraction process is over, the gums are left to heal.
- An impression of your mouth is cast to start with the process of dentures.
- Some fine detailing of your mouth is also captured in these impressions so that your dentures fit in properly.
The Preliminary Stage
- Once your prosthodontist decides the type of denture that is required for your teeth, temporary dentures are prearranged until your permanent ones arrive.
- Necessary adjustments are made to ensure they fit well.
You can contact the clinic in case you have soreness as your dentures may need some minor adjustments.
Successful dentures require not only careful crafting but a number of stages to fabricate natural looking teeth. A quality set of dentures can transform how you look and eat. Here are a few MYTHS and FACTS about dentures:
|All dentures are same and are made from a standard mould.||Dentures are custom-made by taking impression of the jaw and mouth. We customize your dentures with different shapes, sizes and color to blend with your natural tooth enamel.|
|Dentures last forever and do not require oral hygiene.||They are softer than natural teeth and not looking after them can affect how they fit and look. One must follow suitable denture care routine to minimize plaque build-up.|
|Dentures will change your facial esthetics and the way you eat or speak.||Dentures do not change the shape of your face; instead correctly fitted dentures enhance your chewing ability so that you can enjoy your favorite food. Initially you may notice minor differences with your speech but gradually your mouth will adjust to dentures.
If you face problem with dentures, our prosthodontist will modify the shape of your dentures.
|They are painful.||Only ill-fitted or loose dentures are painful.|
|Wearing them during the night is OK.||It is advisable to remove dentures at night thus allowing gum tissues to relax. According to the AAID (American Academy of Implant Dentistry), wearing dentures during sleep could lead to oral inflammation and increased bacterial presence in the mouth.|
How Do I Clean My Dentures?
Daily home care cleaning is very critical as it prevents plaque build-up. Mayo Clinic suggests scheduling regular dental check-ups to help ensure a proper fit and prevent discomfort. For good denture care keep the following points in mind:
- To remove food particles from your dentures, place them under running water; you may also immerse them in water for cleaning them.
- Handle dentures with care. Make sure you don’t damage the clasps while cleaning.
- Use a nonabrasive cleaner to get rid of food particles and other deposits.
- Keep them soaked in water for retaining their shape.
- Rinse and clean your mouth after you remove dentures.
What Not to Do?
- Stay away from harsh and whitening toothpastes as they are abrasive and may damage your dentures.
- Avoid bleaching products as they can change the denture color.
- Steer clear of hot water as it can warp your dentures.
- Do not use a hard-bristled brush to clean dentures.
Life with Dentures
Getting used to dentures may take several weeks. Here are a few tips to chew and eat with them:
- Begin with scrambled eggs, puddings, and apple sauce.
- Do not hold liquids in your mouth for a long time as it may loosen dentures.
- Initially you may find foods taste different with dentures but don’t worry as taste and bite will improve with time.
- Gradually shift to solid foods and eat chopped fruits and veggies.
- Avoid hard and sticky food.
- Be cautious while eating red meat, nuts and coconut.
- Do not use front teeth for biting and chewing.
- Chew on both sides of the mouth at the same time.
