What are the advantages of new dentures?

Dentures, whether partial or full, offer a host of benefits for individuals missing some or all of their teeth. One of the most immediate advantages is the restoration of a full smile, which can significantly boost self-confidence and improve facial aesthetics by providing support to sagging facial muscles and enhancing the structure of the face. Functionally, dentures aid in improving speech and pronunciation that may have been adversely affected by tooth loss. Additionally, they enhance the ability to chew food properly, enabling a more varied and nutritious diet. With advancements in dental technology, today’s dentures are more comfortable, natural-looking, and durable than ever, making them a viable solution for many seeking a blend of comfort and functionality in tooth replacement.

Types of Dentures

Full Dentures

Full dentures, also known as complete dentures, are removable prosthetics used to replace an entire arch of teeth, whether upper, lower, or both. They consist of a set of artificial teeth attached to a gum-coloured acrylic base that covers the gums and, in the case of upper dentures, the palate. Full dentures restore the appearance and functionality of the mouth when all natural teeth are missing.

Implant Retained Dentures

Implant-retained dentures are a type of prosthetic designed to replace missing teeth, securely anchored in place by dental implants embedded into the jawbone. different to traditional dentures, which are designed to rest on the gums, these dentures snap onto or connect to implant fixtures, providing enhanced stability and preventing unwanted movement. This design offers patients improved chewing ability, greater comfort, and the confidence that the denture will remain securely in place throughout daily activities.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are dental prosthetics designed to replace one or several missing teeth in cases where some natural teeth still remain in the upper or lower jaw. They are comprised of replacement teeth attached to a gum-coloured base, often connected by a metal framework. These removable appliances not only fill in the gaps caused by missing teeth but also prevent remaining teeth from shifting positions.

Frequently Asked Questions

Dentures come in various forms, including complete/full dentures (for when all natural teeth are missing), partial dentures (when some natural teeth remain), and implant-supported dentures (which are anchored by dental implants for added stability).

Adjusting to new dentures may take a few weeks. Initially, they might feel a bit odd or loose, but your muscles and oral tissues will learn to hold them in place, and you’ll become more comfortable eating and speaking with them over time.

Dentures require daily cleaning to remove food particles and prevent plaque buildup. Use a soft-bristled brush and non-abrasive denture cleaner. It’s also advisable to keep them moist when not in use by placing them in a denture solution or plain water to prevent warping.

Eating and speaking might feel different when you first get your dentures. It’s recommended to start with soft foods and practice speaking aloud to adjust faster. Over time, you’ll become more accustomed to them, and these tasks will become easier.

Dentures may require adjustments over time due to wear or changes in your gum and bone structure. On average, dentures should be replaced every 5-7 years. Regular dental check-ups are essential to ensure your dentures fit well and remain comfortable.
