What are dentures?
Dentures are essentially removable teeth that can help restore function in the case of tooth loss. They can be constructed in both complete and partial format, and are created to suit the individual mouth, both in terms of comfort and visual appeal.
Since they are removable, they can be cleaned easily and regularly. They are a highly cost-effective means of replacing teeth, as they do not involve the extended and complex treatment needs of dental implants.
They are often considered a more accessible option than implants, and can reduce the level of treatment required.
Who are candidates for dentures?
Ideal candidates for dentures are adults who have lost teeth with significant experience. You must also have a sufficient amount of healthy gum tissue and jawbone.
If you were only missing one or two teeth, a dental bridge or implant may be another option for you.
Complete VS partial dentures
Dentures can be constructed in both complete and partial format and are created to suit the individual mouth, both in terms of their comfort and visual appeal.
Their removable nature allows for an ability to keep both the denture and gum clean, with little interference or difficulty in accessibility to these areas. Comparatively, this issue can sometimes be experienced after bridge treatment, where debris and bacteria may harbour between the bridge and gum if insufficiently maintained and cleaned.
Dentures are a highly cost-effective means of replacing lost teeth as they do not involve the extended and complex treatment needs of dental implants. Dentures are often considered a more accessible option and can reduce the level of treatment needed to achieve a successful solution.
Complete dentures are used when all teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain.
