A denture or a complete denture as it is often called, is an appliance that is placed into the mouth replacing the natural teeth to help with normal daily functions such as chewing and eating and to support the cheeks and lips.
The majority of dentures are made of acrylic and are designed in two different ways.
Conventional Dentures - these are made once all the teeth have been extracted and the tissues or gums have completely healed.
Immediate Dentures – these are fabricated as a temporary dentures to be placed in the mouth immediately after the teeth have been extracted. Once in the gums and tissue begin to heal underneath the immediate denture.
The teeth in a denture can be made either of acrylic, porcelain or a combination of the two. Although dentures can be loose in the mouth, a more perfect fit can be achieved through dental implant secured dentures.
As time goes by, dentures will wear down and need to be replaced. Sometimes, due to the jaw alignment, your dentures might need realignment due to the bone and gum ridges receding or shrinking. Because of these factors, routine dental examinations are still necessary and important for the denture wearer.
