What are Dentures?
As a restorative dentistry option, dentures are removable dental prosthetics designed to replace missing teeth and surrounding tissues. They are custom-made to fit the patient’s mouth and can be used to replace either a few teeth or a full arch of teeth. Dentures are typically made from a combination of acrylic resin and metal, and they are held in place by suction, dental adhesive, or dental implants. Dentures can improve a patient’s ability to chew and speak, enhance their appearance, and help maintain the structure of their face and jaw.
Benefits of Dentures
Dentures offer a range of benefits for patients who have lost some or all of their natural teeth. They can improve your ability to speak and eat, restore your smile, and boost your self-confidence. Dentures can also help maintain the structure of your face by providing support to your cheeks and lips, preventing them from sagging or collapsing. Additionally, dentures can help distribute the forces of your bite more evenly, reducing the stress on your remaining teeth and improving your overall oral health. With advancements in modern dentistry, dentures now look and feel more natural than ever before, making them a popular and effective restorative solution.
Partial dentures are used to replace missing teeth when some natural teeth remain in the upper or lower jaw. Unlike traditional dentures that replace all the teeth in the upper or lower jaw, partial dentures only replace some of the teeth. Partial dentures are designed to blend in with your remaining natural teeth and provide a more stable and comfortable fit. They are usually made of a combination of metal and acrylic, with metal clasps that attach to the remaining teeth for support. Partial dentures are custom-made to fit the patient’s mouth and can be easily removed for cleaning and maintenance.
Snap-in dentures, also known as implant-supported dentures or overdentures, are a type of denture that is secured in place using dental implants. Unlike traditional dentures, which rely on suction or adhesive to stay in place, snap-in dentures are attached to implants that are surgically placed in the jawbone. This provides a more stable and secure fit, allowing for improved comfort and function while eating, speaking, and smiling. Snap-in dentures also differ from partial dentures in that they replace all the teeth in either the upper or lower arch, while partial dentures are designed to replace only a few missing teeth and are often attached to existing teeth using clasps or other attachments. Overall, snap-in dentures can be an excellent solution for those who want a more secure and stable alternative to traditional dentures, but who may not be candidates for a full set of dental implants.
