FULL ARCH DENTURE

FULL ARCH DENTURE

Teethless individuals often use full arch dentures. This dental prosthetic helps people eat, speak, and smile confidently, improving their lives.

1. Who Needs Full Arch Dentures?

1.1. Missing all the teeth

Full arch dentures are best for patients who have lost all their teeth due to decay, gum disease, injury, or other health issues. Complete upper and lower jaw dentures replace teeth.

1.2. Extensive decay or disease patients

Full arch dentures may be indicated for extensive decay or disease patients who cannot save their teeth. Dentists remove broken teeth before fitting dentures.

1.3. Dissatisfaction with dentures

Patients unhappy with their fit, comfort, or aesthetics may seek full arch dentures. Nowadays, full arch dentures are more comfortable, functional, and natural.

2. How are full-arch dentures made?

Full-arch dentures replace all teeth in a jaw. Complete arch dentures demand precision and technical competence, contrary to popular opinion. This covers whole arch denture production.

Step 1. Initial Impressions

Complete arch dentures start with mouth impressions. The patient’s gums and teeth are sculpted with alginate and a stock tray. After this initial imprint, a bespoke impression tray is made from the patient’s mouth model.

Step 2. Last impressions and custom tray

Improved mouth fit with custom imprint trays. Using an exact substance, this tray takes a more comprehensive impression of the gums and remaining teeth. The patient’s last mouthprint becomes the denture pattern.

Step 3. Bite Registration

Enter bites. As normal, the patient bites wax or silicone. Knowing the patient’s upper and lower jaws helps the dental technician make a comfortable denture.

Step 4. Wax Trial

Dental technicians make wax try-in partial dentures using the working model and bite registration. This wax denture checks fit, bite, and tooth look. Make any necessary modifications now.

Step 5. Processing

The denture is processed once the patient and dentist approve the wax try-in. Acrylic gum replaces wax.

Step 6. Fitting

Patients receive dentures after processing. Dentists adjust denture fit, bite, and appearance. New denture care instructions are supplied.

Dentures break readily when dropped. Handle your denture over a bowl or cloth.

Never bend or break clasps or plastic during cleaning.

Keep dentures in water or a cleaning solution while not in use to prevent drying and shape loss.

Avoid hot water, which might twist dentures.

Full dentures require gum, tongue, and palate care. Brush these areas daily with a soft bristle brush.
