What are Dentures?
Dentures are artificial replacements for your natural teeth. Dentures are needed when you have several unhealthy teeth or no teeth. Dentures will replace your missing and/or unhealthy teeth. Dentures will restore your smile and return some of the chewing power you once had.
Dentures are removable. Dentures can replace all of your teeth, or they can just replace a few missing ones. Complete dentures are usually made of an acrylic resin, while partial dentures are made from a combination of acrylic resin and metal.
Dentures will restore your smile and increase your chewing power.
Types of dentures
There are three main types of dentures: complete, partial, and overdentures. The type of denture you will need is based on how many remaining natural teeth you have and your individual needs.
Tips to Get Used to your Dentures
How to Take Care of Your Dentures
Dentures need daily care. For complete dentures, brush your gums and tongue with a soft-bristled brush before inserting your dentures. Take your dentures out of your mouth and brush them at least once a day. Place them in water or a denture-cleansing liquid while you sleep.
For partial dentures, brush your gums and tongue with a soft-bristled brush before inserting your dentures. But don't let partial dentures with metal parts soak in a denture-cleansing solution for more than 15 minutes.
Be gentle when handling your dentures, as they can be fragile and might break if dropped.
