Today's dentures are custom made, affordable dentures that are made to look and feel like your natural teeth. Dentures can allow patients to eat and speak normally and in the case of implant secured dentures, reduce bone loss in the jaw which can lead to a premature shrinkage of the lower area of the face.
Currently, there are a number of options available for people who have lost their teeth. One of the most versatile and affordable is a set of removable dentures.
Standard full dentures are ones that comprise a full set of upper and lower teeth. This type of false teeth uses suction to stay in place. They are made of a pliable material which makes suction easy. However, it is for this reason that standard full dentures require routine visits to the dentist. Being pliable, the dental plates are susceptible to shrinkage, thus creating an ill-fitting prosthetic that will result in the atrophy of the jawbone.
Partial dentures are artificial teeth that replace only a limited number of teeth, and not an entire set. Partial dentures are a single piece fitting that is supported by the remaining teeth and gums. They are much more secure than standard full dentures, and are more comfortable.
Permanent Dentures are made to look as natural as possible, fit perfectly, and last longer than any other set of teeth available. Unlike standard dentures that use a heat curing process which leads to dentures that become ill-fitting over time, cosmetic dentures are made from a special acrylic base that eliminates the possibility of the dental plate shrinking and warping.
Furthermore, permananet dentures achieve a natural appearance through the use of denture implants. Implants are installed in the mouth so that the dentures have something to permanently hold onto. The cosmetic denture will either rest on or snap onto the implant. What this does is allow the false teeth to stay in place without the chance of it moving around, which makes the permanent denture more comfortable than a standard one.

Like anything new, you need time to adapt to your new denture. Chewing is one of the skills that needs to be adapted when you receive either replacement dentures or you are a brand new user.
You can help yourself accommodate by taking smaller portions and chewing slowly and avoiding sticky or tough foods for a little while. You should soon see an improvement due to the new dentures being more efficient as the chewing surfaces have less wear.
This is personal preference; however we recommend that you wear your dentures as much as possible, only to remove them at night.
It is very important to keep them extremely clean. Brush your gums underlying the dentures with a soft tooth brush. This removes any plaque build up along with any food debris; it also stimulates the blood vessels which is an essential part of healthy tissue.
Every effort will be made to make your new dentures to fit and be as comfortable as possible. However it is not uncommon to develop pressure points and sore spots. These if left untreated can make the dentures feel very uncomfortable. If you find you have a sore area and it last for more than 48 hours you should seek professional help. A minor adjustment can bring added comfort in a matter of minutes.
Dental implants stabilize your dentures by attaching to the denture using snap receptors or bars which are attached to the implant fixture and the denture. This can remove any movement during normal chewing function. Dentures can also be screwed directly onto the implant which offers a non removable option.

You should take your dentures out when you sleep. That's because the gums under your dentures need a rest every day and you need to clean your dentures daily. Your mouth and the bone in your jaw that supports your dentures will continue to change. After many years of denture wear, your jaws (especially your lower jaw) become smaller over time.
A crown covers a tooth to restore its normal shape and size. The cap is placed on teeth that have lost a lot of their structure-- dental crowns range from full porcelain to full metal.
Dental bridges preserve the integrity of existing teeth and help maintain a healthy smile by bridging the gap created by one or more missing teeth. A bridge can be fixed or removable.
Dental implants provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. Eat virtually anything plus implants help solve denture problems.
