Dentures are removable prosthetic or false teeth that replace complete rows of missing upper or lower teeth. Dentures are worn during the day, held in place with special denture adhesive, and then taken out at night.
A custom-made denture fits firmly and comfortably over your gums, looking and feeling similar to natural teeth. Quality of life can be improved with a denture, making eating easier and more enjoyable as well as giving you a new smile.
After your initial consultation and dental examination, your dentist will advise you on the most appropriate treatment option that may include dentures. Depending on your requirements, there are three main types of cosmetic denture:
Full Dentures – when you need to replace an entire row of upper or lower teeth, full or complete dentures are commonly used. Full dentures are removable and worn during the day, secured in place with a dental adhesive.
Partial Dentures – where several teeth are missing from your mouth, a partial denture is frequently used as a removable replacement. Partial dentures are secured in place with clasps which are attached to healthy teeth.
Implant-Supported Dentures – when your jawbones are strong and healthy, an implant-supported denture is a very effective and convenient treatment. Dental implants are secured to the jawbone, supporting a removable denture. You can expect optimal eating comfort and everyday convenience.
Once you have accepted your denture treatment plan, your Kettering dentist will begin by taking measurements of your mouth and impressions of your remaining teeth.
Depending on your requirements, dentures can take several appointments to complete. In the case of implant-supported dentures, you will need to allow several months for the implant to fuse with the jawbone before your new denture can be worn.
If you wear an old denture that you find uncomfortable or loose, our dentists are here to help. A new denture can improve quality of life, making eating easier and more comfortable as well as enhancing your smile. For more information about dentures and denture repairs in Kettering, call us now.
