Denture Treatment

If you have lost teeth through natural aging or unfortunate injury, dental prostheses can be a great solution. In other words, dental prostheses refer to dentures which are replacements for missing teeth that are custom-made, with the option of being removable. People who have dentures have the ability to take them in and out of their mouth at their own leisure. With modern day state-of-the-art technology, dentures look and feel more realistic than ever before. Although they take some time to get used to, they are almost as similar as real teeth.

There are two main types of dentures:

  • Full Dentures
  • Partial Dentures

Each type consists of several options and all have the same capabilities. Both types consist of a base that has a natural gum-color to it and is made out of a plastic resin. This base is placed on, what is left over from, the alveolar bone ridge. The alveolar bone ridge is what teeth are held in by and with dentures, it is where they create a suctioning effect to keep the dentures in place. It is very important that dentures are primarily fitted correctly so that they maintain position while in use. The nerves and ligaments in the mouth will have to be retrained until they can function properly.
