Dentures are an instant relief to missing teeth and provide a simple solution to fill the gaps. There are very basic in their manufacture and easy to take care of. Their popularity springs from their non-invasive nature to fix. They are 3 types:
Partial dentures – These are used to replace one or two missing teeth
Complete dentures – These replace the entire set of teeth. It is most common in elderly patients or patients whose teeth are adversely affected prompting the need for extraction.
Temporary dentures – These are given as a short term solution to replacing missing teeth while preparations are underway for more permanent solutions such as dental implants.
Dentures are made of acrylic or metal material which disintegrates and breaks down over time. This causes crack, chips or breakage of the denture. Over time, the dentures also become uncomfortable and will need to be re-adjusted accordingly. It is recommended to get your dentures repaired or replaced every 5-7years.
