Dentures


A denture is a removable replacement for surrounding tissues and teeth that are missing; they are supported by surrounding hard and soft tissues of the oral cavity. The benefit of using dentures is that if you have lost your teeth, they will help in improving both oral function and appearances. Dentures improve one's smile, cleaning is easy, and they minimize oral health issues. At RJ Dental we can give you satisfactory and topnotch service with your dentures and other dental services.

Types of dentures


The two most common types of dentures are complete dentures and partial dentures. Complete dentures can be immediate or conventional. They are made after the teeth have been removed and the gum tissue has begun to heal. A complete denture is ready to be replaced in the mouth of the patient about eight to 12 weeks after extraction has taken place. Immediate dentures are prepared in advance and can be placed in the desired position after teeth have been removed; the gums reduce in size over time. Immediate dentures have more adjustments to fit properly in the process of healing; conventional dentures are more approximate.

Partial dentures consist of replacement teeth that are attached to a base that is plastic and color. It can be joined with a metallic framework that holds the dentures in the mouth. Partial dentures are used when natural teeth remain in the lower or the upper jaw. A fixed bridge replaces the teeth by positioning crowns on both sides, and the artificial teeth are attached. The bridge is afterward cemented to the dentures and also helps prevent the other teeth from changing position.

Making and functioning of dentures


The development procedure to create dentures takes several appointments. By first measuring how the jaws relate together and the space between them, we will choose the appropriate dental appliance for you. Dental molds, the same size of your remaining teeth will be made, casting on the mold on the final denture and, then making adjustments on the dentures to ensure comfort-ability. The dentures may feel loose for a few weeks before the tongue and the cheek muscles learn to keep the dentures in position. Dentures are made to look innate; thus, little changes will be noticeable. While eating for the first time, it may feel awkward or uncomfortable, so the patient is advised to eat soft food. As you get used to the feel of your dentures it will become easier. Patients are advised not to eat bones and avoid hard and sticky foods; toothpicks should also be avoided.

After placing the dentures, some words might be hard to pronounce, but you will get used to talking with your dentures in no time.
Dentures, if not secure, can slip when smiling, laughing, or coughing; the dentures can be put back in position by biting down gently and swallowing. If speech problems persist, the patient should visit us, and we can offer therapy for speech improvements. When dentures are initially placed, the patient should wear them all the time. Once the necessary adjustments are made, dentures can be removed before sleeping.
