What are Dentures? and Who are in Need of Them?
Dentures are the best solution for the missing teeth. Dentures are made from acrylic resin and are used as removable replacements for missing teeth. The two types of dentures available are partial and complete dentures. Complete dentures are put into use only when the patient has lost almost all of his or her teeth due to injury, ageing, decay, or disease. On the other hand partial dentures are used when only a few teeth are missing. Both partial dentures and complete dentures are custom made for ultimate comfort, fit and appearance. Proper hygiene is what is needed for the dentures. Some people experience reduction in efficiency in chewing. In spite of all these shortcomings dentures are the best alternative for those who do not want or cannot afford to have dental implants.
Dentures: How the false tooth are set.
It is up to the dentures expert to decide whether the patient must go for partial or full dentures. So as to make the dentures more comfortable the medical practitioner may remove the remaining teeth. So as to make the mould for the dentures the dentist takes a wax bite impression and sends it to the laboratory for the dentures to be made out of it. Once the dentures are ready the health care professional will fix the dentures into the mouth and you are all ready to cherish the most loved food. The health care professional may call you again to fix the dentures in a better way or for tightening the dentures.
After care of the dentures
The dentures may last for life if proper care is taken and proper cleaning is done. The dentures are stronger and hence there is no possibility that the denture may break in but sufficient precaution should be taken before chewing in any hard food articles. Proper cleaning may avoid halitosis, infection, irritation, sores, and a host of other complications.
