A denture is a removable prosthesis used to replace missing teeth. Commonly referred to as a false teeth’s, a denture is usually made of acrylic or a combination of acrylic and metal. A partial denture is fitted to replace some missing teeth whilst a complete denture is indicated when all natural teeth are missing. A good set of dentures helps you to eat, speak, function, and often improves an individuals appearance.

Two types of dentures are available — complete and partial dentures.

  • Complete dentures can be either “conventional” or “immediate.” Made after the teeth have been removed and the gum tissue has begun to heal, a conventional denture is ready for placement in the mouth about eight to 12 weeks after the teeth have been removed.
  • Partial dentures are used when one or more natural teeth remain in the upper or lower jaw.

Dentures can help people through:

  • Mastication or chewing ability is improved by replacing edentulous areas with denture teeth.
  • Aesthetics, because the presence of teeth gives a natural appearance to the face, and wearing a denture to replace missing teeth provides support for the lips and cheeks and corrects the collapsed appearance that results from the loss of teeth.
  • Pronunciation, because replacing missing teeth, especially the anteriors, enables patients to speak better.
  • Self-esteem, because improved looks and speech boost confidence in the ability to interact socially.
