Missing teeth pose various problems both from the functional and the aesthetic point of view. They leave a displeasing appearance on one’s smile, cause the facial structure to appear shrunken, and also affect the way the patient bites and chews food. This is why dentists advise patients to get their teeth replaced by prosthetic ones at the earliest to avoid any further complications.
Dentures are a set of prosthetic teeth made from acrylic and ceramic. They can either be used to replace all the teeth or only a few teeth, depending on the requirement of the patient. If the patient has lost a significant number of teeth, then dentures would be the best option to replace all of them.
The dentist would screen the mouth for possible infections, jawbone deterioration, drifting of teeth, etc. X-rays, scans, and molds of the mouth will be taken to determine the shape and size of the dentures required. The data will be sent over to a dental laboratory for fabricating them.
The dentures will be made with high precision and would offer perfect fit and bite. They will be of high strength and durability, and with proper care, they usually last several years. During use, they will have to be removed and cleaned, just like brushing our teeth. It is recommended that they should be removed and kept aside before going to bed.
