Full and Partial Dentures
Missing teeth are an embarrassment to your smile and overall appearance. Your teeth give shape to your face, structure to your smile and allow you to speak and eat with ease. People with missing teeth cannot perform these activities so easily. A number of dental solutions are now available for the convenience of those who have lost one, most or all of their teeth. One of these solutions comes in the form of dentures, which are considered to be one of the most affordable treatments for missing teeth.
If some of the teeth in an arch are missing, they can be replaced with the use of partial dentures. These are a single piece fitting and are supported by the gums and remaining teeth. They are much more comfortable and secure than standard full dentures.
Standard Full Dentures
Standard full dentures are a full set of lower and upper teeth and are used for people who are missing most or all of their teeth. These dentures make use of a suction mechanism to stay attached in the mouth. They are manufactured using pliable material that makes suction easy. However, they require routine visits to the dentist, as they are prone to shrinkage, which can sometimes spoil the fit and cause atrophy of the jawbone.
Standard dentures utilize a heat curing process causes them to lose fitting with time. Cosmetic dentures are made to look close to the natural teeth and are manufactured using an acrylic base that gets rid of the possibility of warping and shrinking.
Cosmetic dentures are fixed with the use of implants, which provide a stable foundation to the dentures. They stay fixed in the mouth and therefore you do not have to worry about them moving around or slipping.
