Dentures are a way to replace missing teeth in your mouth. Unlike other forms of replacement teeth, dentures are removable and can be taken out at will. Generally, dentures look and feel the same as normal teeth, meaning you shouldn’t notice any changes in eating, talking, or smiling. You take care of them just like normal teeth by brushing them daily.
In order to fit you for dentures, a dentist will begin by taking specific measurements and impressions of your jaw to create a personalized fit. They will then be created in a laboratory to ensure they are the perfect size for your mouth.
WHEN DO I NEED DENTURES?
You may need dentures if you have missing teeth. Whether you’ve lost teeth because of gum disease, dental trauma, or severe decay, dentures can help you chew more efficiently and improve your appearance.
There are two main types of dentures, depending on the severity of your tooth loss. Partial dentures just fill in spots where there are missing teeth without removing existing teeth. They are a good alternative to bridges. Conventional dentures, however, require the removal of existing teeth because they fill the entire mouth. Most people begin to feel comfortable wearing dentures after just a few weeks of use.
