Dentures as oral solutions

Removal and artificial teeth that act as replacements for natural teeth are known as dentures. In case all teeth are missing or damaged, complete dentures are used, but if some natural teeth are still deemed fit, then the Spadent dentist will fix partial dentures. The reason partial dentures are advised is that missing teeth can alter the position of other natural teeth.

Dentures are less costly as compared to dental implants. They are always custom made for a specific gum line and set of teeth. Of course, having something new in the mouth for the very first time is liable to cause initial inconvenience, which is why the Spadent dentist will keep you in observation over 24-48 hours and treat you accordingly.

What are dentures made of?

Materials commonly used to prepare dentures are acrylic, nylon or metal. These teeth are directly fitted into the oral cavity and supported using soft and hard tissues in the mouth. With the help of an adhesive, it is attached to a person’s gum. The adhesiveness normally lasts for a few hours, after which a person has to apply the adhesive again.

How long will they last?

Your dentist at Spadent will advise you to replace the denture in 5-7 years. However, these devices can sometimes last for even 10 years. For the repair of a chipped or broken tooth, you can simply give Spadent a call and a mobile unit will be sent to your location.

Procedure

An impression of the jaw will first be taken by your dentist to analyse the denture’s fitting and spaces in between.

To verify this fitting, a wax model is prepared.

The final denture is prepared using the same wax model, with or without alterations.

You will be asked to try out the final set of dentures and if necessary, changes will be made.

Is it possible to sleep with dentures?

Dentists do not foresee any particular risk to your mouth as such. However, just to be on the safe side, you are still recommended to remove them as a healthy option. Actually, the real reason is that gums and tissues which support the dentures require time to rest and recover after being in contact with saliva.

Though most people are able to keep wearing dentures without complaints, some of them do feel uncomfortable while chewing a variety of foods. The most prevalent reason for discomfort is the constantly changing condition of the mouth. For example, gum tissue decreases with the jawbone as you age. Hard dentures are unable to adjust to new shapes and people wearing them have to use adhesive for better teeth stability. On the other hand, soft and flexible dentures do not require adhesives and are able to adapt to irregularities in your mouth. They work well even in harsh chewing conditions.
