Dentures

What are dentures?

Dentures are removable artificial teeth used to replace missing teeth. They are removable and are available in a variety of materials.

What are the advantages of dentures?

  • Dentures help in chewing
  • They improve appearance and give confidence
  • They aid better in speech
  • They are removable and can be cleaned

What are the different types of dentures available?

Complete Denture:

Are used by patients who do not have any teeth in either of the upper or lower arches

Partial Denture :

Partial Dentures are another alternative treatment for patients with few missing teeth.

Is it difficult to eat after wearing dentures?

Initially with a denture, eating may require practice . One should start eating soft food in small bites. Food should be chewed using both sides to avoid tripping of dentures. The quantity of food can be gradually increased. One should not chew hard/ hot food, or bite on hard objects .

What care should be taken?

Dentures should be cleaned regularly as tarter/plaque can get accumulated on artificial teeth. One should brush the denture after every meal. Bleaching agents should be avoided as they may discolour the denture material.

How long do dentures last?

Dentures can last for say 5 to 10 years. Gums and teeth continue to change shape (when there are no teeth) for a lifetime. Dentures do not change their shape and therefore need to be adjusted or replaced after a few years. Continuous visits to the dentist are recommended so that there is no major problem which cannot be identified by the patient.

What factors determines the cost of the denture?

The cost depends on the skill of the dentist, experience, type of denture to be constructed and materials used. Dentures are one of the most commonly used treatment for complete missing teeth.
