A denture, also known as dental prosthesis, is a removable appliance used to replace missing teeth and surrounding tissue. Dentures are custom-made to fit the unique shape of each patient's mouth and are typically made of acrylic resin or a combination of acrylic resin and metal.

Here's an overview of dentures:

  • Types of Dentures:

    • Complete Dentures: These are used when all teeth are missing in the upper or lower arch of the mouth. Complete dentures are held in place by suction and may require the use of denture adhesive for added stability.
    • Partial Dentures: Partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain in the mouth. They consist of replacement teeth attached to a metal framework that clasps onto the remaining natural teeth for support.
    • Implant-Supported Dentures: These dentures are anchored in place by dental implants surgically placed in the jawbone. Implant-supported dentures offer increased stability and function compared to traditional dentures.
  • Fabrication Process:

    • Initial Consultation: The process begins with a consultation with a dentist or prosthodontist, who will assess your oral health and discuss your treatment options.
    • Impressions: Impressions or digital scans of your mouth are taken to create a custom-fit denture.
    • Try-In: A temporary or wax denture is created for you to try in your mouth to ensure proper fit, appearance, and function.
    • Finalization: After any necessary adjustments, the final denture is fabricated.
  • Placement and Adjustment:

    • Once the final denture is ready, it is placed in your mouth, and your dentist will make any final adjustments to ensure comfort and fit.
  • Care and Maintenance:

    • Proper care and maintenance of dentures are essential for their longevity and to maintain oral health. This includes daily cleaning, removing dentures at night, and regular visits to the dentist for adjustments and examinations.
  • Adaptation Period:

    • It may take some time to adjust to wearing dentures, especially during activities like eating and speaking. Your dentist will provide guidance on how to adapt to your new dentures and may recommend dietary adjustments during the initial period of adjustment.

Overall, dentures provide a functional and aesthetic solution for replacing missing teeth and restoring the ability to eat, speak, and smile with confidence. With proper care and maintenance, dentures can significantly improve the quality of life for individuals with missing teeth.
