REMOVABLE DENTURE

Removable dentures are dental prosthetics that replace missing teeth and surrounding tissues. They are commonly used by people who have lost their teeth due to various reasons such as age, injury, gum disease, or decay. Removable dentures come in two types- partial and complete dentures. Partial dentures replace only a few missing teeth, while full arch dentures replace all teeth.

1. Advantages of removable dentures

Removable dentures offer several benefits to people who have lost their teeth. They improve the appearance of the face by filling gaps in the mouth and preventing the sagging of the facial muscles. They also improve speech and chewing ability, essential for proper digestion. Removable dentures are easy to clean and maintain and are affordable compared to other dental prosthetics.

2. Types of removable dentures

Removable dentures come in different types, each with a specific purpose. Partial dentures replace a few missing teeth and are held in place by clasps that attach to the natural teeth. Complete dentures, on the other hand, are used to replace all teeth and are held in place by suction or dental adhesive.

Immediate dentures are another type of removable-denture placed immediately after tooth extraction. Immediate dentures help preserve the gums’ structure and prevent bone loss. They also serve as a temporary replacement for missing teeth until permanent dentures are ready.

Implant-supported dentures are a modern type of denture held in place by dental implants. Implants are surgically placed into the jawbone, and dentures are attached. Implant-supported dentures offer more stability and comfort compared to traditional dentures.

3. Making removable dentures

The process of making  dentures involves several steps. First, the dentist takes impressions of the mouth, which are used to mold the teeth and gums. The mold is then sent to a dental laboratory where the denture is fabricated.

Once the denture is fabricated, the dentist checks its fit and makes necessary adjustments. The patient is then instructed on how to wear and care for the denture.

4. Caring for removable dentures

Proper care of dentures is essential to ensure their longevity and functionality. Dentures should be cleaned with a soft-bristled brush and mild soap or denture cleaner. They should be rinsed thoroughly with water after cleaning.

Dentures should be stored in a clean, dry container when not in use. They should also be soaked overnight in a denture, more sterile solution to remove any bacteria and stains.

Regular dental checkups are also essential to ensure that the denture fits correctly and that the gums and surrounding tissues are healthy.

Conclusion

Removable dentures are an effective and affordable solution for people who have lost their teeth. They improve the appearance of the face, speech, and chewing ability. Different types of dentures are available, and each type serves a specific purpose. Proper care and maintenance of dentures are essential for their longevity and functionality. Regular dental checkups are also crucial to ensure that the denture fits correctly and that the gums and surrounding tissues are healthy.
