Dentures are made of ceramic, plastic or pure ceramics with artificial roots. These dentures are permanent options and do not require you to take them off. They give you a feeling of having your old teeth back.
Types of Dentures
Primarily dentures are of two kinds, complete and partial. The dentists recommend using partial denture when some natural teeth are still present in the mouth. On the other hand, full dentures are the procedure for getting new teeth for the entire mouth and jawbone. A partial denture is used to fill all spaces created by the missing teeth. Partial dentures are a perfect way to keep the teeth from shifting.
Why Should You Get Dentures?
The dentist will recommend a traditional denture after the teeth are removed from the gums. The tissue around the gums must heal adequately. The process could take 4 to 6 weeks.
On the other hand, there are immediate dentures that are created before the procedure before the treatment. Until the dentures are complete, the patient has to remain without teeth for some time. Usually, dentures are long lasting and do not need constant changing or replacement. However, regular wear and tear will lead to deteriorated denture health.
Procedure for Dentures
The procedure of getting dentures requires more than one appointment. The treatment can extend to several weeks. The process is very intricate and requires attention to detail. Initially, the dentist will need to take an impression of your teeth to create the dentures according to the structure and tooth shape.
Then the dentist will request you to visit the clinic regularly to try out the new dentures, at this point your feedback is the most essential to the dentist. Inform the dentist if the impressions are not correct, or you have discomfort when you bite.
The different tryouts for dentures are necessary. During the tryouts, the dentist will shape and structure the dentures according to your specific requirements. The dentist will be precise and accurate about the details on your dentures. The hard work is necessary to give you an entirely fitting denture.
During and after the procedure is complete, experience the increased saliva flow, inflammation, pain, sensitivity, difficulty in talking and chewing. All these problems will go away over time. If you feel pain, extreme swelling or any other symptom, then visit McCall’s emergency dental services.
After the treatment is complete, we recommend that you strictly follow the guidelines and the instructions of your dentist to take care of your new dentures. If you face any issue during or after treatment, please let the dentist know immediately.
