WHAT ARE DENTURES?

A full, beautiful smile that radiates joy is something we all yearn for, regardless of age. If you have missing or damaged teeth, you may find yourself constantly finding ways to hide your smile or avoid showing your teeth out of embarrassment.

Dentures also known as false teeth, are an excellent way to get your smile back. They are removable prosthetics crafted by our dentists or dental prosthetists to replace missing teeth and rejuvenate your smile. Whether you need full or partial dentures, our skilled prosthetists can provide you with a solution to suit your needs. Supported by surrounding structures and clasps, dentures fill in gaps left by missing teeth, improving your ability to eat and speak while maintaining your facial appearance and preventing sagging.

Types of Dentures

  • list icon Full Dentures
  • Full dentures are for those who have lost most of their natural teeth. These dentures are of two types, conventional or immediate ,and they can replace all the teeth on the upper and lower jaw. Conventional dentures are fitted more than 2–3 months after the removal of teeth to allow healing of the gums. However, immediate dentures are fitted on the day of tooth removal to ensure patients aren’t left without teeth during the healing period. Realignment is usually required shortly after immediate dentures are fitted.
  • list icon Partial Dentures
  • A partial denture replaces one missing tooth or a group of teeth. They are attached to the remaining teeth in the arch with clasps or attachments and are made with acrylic or metal. Partial dentures are also of two main types: removable and fixed.

The Process Of Getting Dentures

Getting dentures is a simple and smooth process at Purity Dental:

  1. First, we will take detailed impressions of your mouth. These impressions help create accurate moulds of your gums and any remaining teeth. We will also take measurements of your jaw and bite to ensure proper fit and alignment.
  2. Next, a preliminary model of your dentures is created. You will try on this model to check the fit, appearance, and bite. Adjustments may be made as necessary, to ensure comfort and natural-looking results.
  3. Once you are satisfied with the fit and appearance of the trial dentures, the final dentures will be fabricated and fitted in by our skilled dentist.
  4. All that’s left to do after is follow our simple after-care instructions and attend your regular 6-month checkups to ensure your oral health is on track. As your mouth changes shape over time, you may need to reline your dentures to ensure a proper and comfortable fit.

The process may also vary based on your specific needs and unique condition, so it’s important to work closely with our dentist to achieve the best results.

How do I eat with dentures?

New dentures can feel bulky and awkward during the initial weeks. Mouth sores can develop, and your gums may need time to get used to the new dentures. However, after the first few weeks, your mouth will adapt to your dentures, Practising, eating, speaking, and taking them in and out correctly from your mouth will help further.

When eating for the first time, start with soft foods such as soup cooked vegetables, soft cereals or ground meat. Take small bites and chew on both sides of the mouth to keep even pressure on the denture. During the early stages, taste can be different, but this should improve with time. It can sometimes also be hard to judge the temperature of food and drink so be careful when consuming meals immediately after getting your dentures to avoid burning your mouth..

Eventually, you’ll be able to eat almost anything! However, you may want to avoid some hard foods that may dislodge or even break your denture.

CARING FOR YOUR DENTURES

  • list iconClean your dentures in the morning and before going to bed at night. You may also clean your dentures after eating when necessary.
  • list iconRemove your dentures before cleaning.
  • list iconClean all the surfaces of your dentures using a soft-bristled toothbrush. Avoid using toothpaste as it can scratch the denture surfaces.
