What are dentures?

Customized to fit each individual, dentures offer a practical solution for those seeking tooth replacement while improving oral function and aesthetics. The custom prosthetic device is compromised of artificial teeth set in a flesh-colored acrylic or metal base. They can be full or partial, depending on the extent of tooth loss.

Full vs. Partial Dentures

The two most common types of dentures are full and partial dentures. Full dentures replace an entire set of missing teeth in the upper or lower jaw, offering comprehensive restoration. Partial dentures, on the other hand, replace only a few missing teeth and are secured with clasps attached to natural teeth. Dentures may also be secured with dental implants. Whether you are missing all or only some of your teeth, dentures are a reliable solution for restoring your smile quickly!

How do I care for dentures?

Caring for your dentures is a simple and essential process that ensures the longevity of your dentures. Whether you have full dentures or partial dentures, clean them daily by brushing with a soft denture brush and mild soap or denture cleaner. Rinse the dentures after meals to remove debris. Soak them overnight in a denture-cleaning solution or water. Handle the dentures with care to avoid damage, and visit the dentist regularly for adjustments. If you suspect something is wrong with your dentures, don’t hesitate to contact our restorative dentist near you.
