The In’s And Out’s Of Wearing Dentures

The teeth play an important role in having beautiful smile. It makes sense to maintain the cleanliness of your teeth and avoid plaque buildup. However, there are instances in which no matter how diligent a person is in keeping their teeth clean, the time comes when they start to get brittle and cause further tooth problems. In this case, there is no other remedy but to extract the tooth.  After several teeth are gone the most cost effective solution is often to replace them with dentures.


Dentures are also often called false teeth and can be removed. They can be made of metal or acrylic depending on your choice. These false teeth are designed not only to replace the missing teeth, but also in preventing possible problems that may occur as a result of the gaps. The gaps may affect the way a person speaks and eats. Sometimes the dentist recommends removing all of the patients teeth and replaces them with false teeth. This is called complete dentures, as opposed to the partial dentures wich is when only a few teeth are replaced.


Having dentures can help in preventing further problems at the same time improve the way you smile and speak. However, before deciding to have false teeth it is important to know some important information.


How removable Dentures are fitted


Full Dentures

If there is a need to remove all of the teeth, then obviously you need to replace them by having full dentures. After removing the teeth, the dentist will fit the dentures over your jawbone and gums. However, chances are that you need to wait until your gums heal before fitting the dentures. You can either see a qualified dental technician or a dentist to fit thees false teeth.  First a trial denture is created to obtain the impressions of your mouth. This will help the dental technician or dentist to assess the appearance of the false teeth. Likewise, the shape and color can be adjusted in order to produce perfect false teeth that look like the real thing.


Partial Dentures

Thees type of dentures are designed to replace one or more teeth that were removed. They can be made of metal or plastic plate. They are fitted to the natural teeth through metal clasps that hold the dentures securely into your mouth. Likewise, it can be easily removed and unclipped. Partial dentures are made just like full dentures.


Wearing dentures may feel strange, but once you get used to wearing them, you will be comfortable even while sleeping. These false teeth can sometimes put stress on your gums.  If this happens removing them at night can allow your gums to rest or relax. If you chose to remove the dentures make sure to keep them in a polythene bag or water so that they will remain moist. If you let the denture material to dry out it can alter their shape.


Dental hygiene is important even if you are wearing denture. It is still important to brush the remaining teeth, tongue and gums to avoid gum disease, tooth decay and further dental issues. Likewise, it is also a must to clean the denture diligently to avoid oral or dental problems.
