A conventional denture is a non implant retained denture that seats on the gum in the mouth to replace natural teeth and provides support for the cheeks and lips.
What are full dentures?
Full dentures are custom-made removable dental appliances that replace a full set of missing teeth and restore full functionality and appearance to your mouth.
Also known as conventional or complete dentures, full dentures can replace a full set of top teeth, bottom teeth, or both. They have a gum-colored base lined with dental adhesive to hold them firmly in place on your gums.
What are immediate dentures?
If you need full dentures because you’ve lost most or all of your teeth as a result of illness, injury, or decay, you may be a good candidate for immediate dentures, sometimes called temporaries.
After the extraction of remaining teeth, your gum tissues need to heal completely before you can being wearing full dentures. Because the healing process can take weeks or even months, immediate dentures provide the convenience of never having to be without teeth, even as your gum tissues heal.
Wearing a temporary appliance allows you to eat normally and maintain your appearance until you’re ready to wear a more permanent appliance. Just like other types of dentures, temporary dentures are removable.
What are the benefits of full dentures?
Full dentures are more comfortable, more natural-looking, longer-lasting, and easier to maintain than ever before. Custom-created using highly advanced technology, full dentures can help you speak clearly and eat normally, and they restore your smile as well as the shape and profile of your face.
If you aren’t a good candidate for implant-supported dentures, either because you don’t have sufficient jawbone mass or you aren’t a good candidate for surgery, full dentures provide an ideal alternative.
The team at Denture In will help you understand all your treatment options so you can choose the restoration that works best for you.
How do I care for my dentures?
To help your dentures last as long as possible, it’s important to clean them properly every day. This means rinsing away any loose food particles before you brush them; it also means using only a soft-bristled brush and a non-abrasive toothpaste paste made specifically for dentures to prevent discoloration and remove any remaining residue.
