A denture is basically a false replacement for a missing tooth and missing tissues in the mouth. Two kinds of dentures can be found out there; complete and partial dentures.
Complete dentures when the whole teeth have been lost are mainly used by those who have missing teeth. This is done by cutting off part of the bone or gum and replacing it with the
false tooth. The problem with such dentures is that they can not be used for chewing and other normal oral functions.
Partial dentures on the other hand are more suitable for patients who want to get used to using dentures. With this kind of dentures, a small prosthetic tooth is put in which the remaining tooth of the patient is fixed. The patient then uses this prosthetic tooth to eat, drink and speak normally. Pro prosthodontist can help you get used to the feel and look of the dentures. You should consult your dentist before getting yourself fitted for a prosthetic. Pro prosthodontists usually do the procedure in the dental clinic attached to the hospital.
Patients having both missing teeth as well as gap-toothed jaws will need dentures. gap-toothed jaws are those where the lower jaw looks wider than the upper jaw. Such patients might need dentures that can fit comfortably between the gap-toothed jaws. Some dentures even have a gum bridge to support the gum and keep it from moving or folding during chewing.
When dentures cannot be used, dentures can be used as an alternative. Dentures Clinic in Melbourne offers a wide range of dentures to fit your mouth. Patients with gap-toothed jaws or other such defects can use full dentures that are made of plastic and fit very close to the jaw. There are also a variety of partial dentures to replace the missing teeth. These partial dentures can be made to look like the natural teeth of the patient.
If you have lost a whole, entire or partial denture in an accident or some kind of trauma then there are new dentures called "artificial teeth" to be worn. A patient suffering from missing all of his or her teeth can wear artificial teeth to replace missing teeth. If wearing dentures is not possible due to financial reasons, a dentist may provide Invisalign with a solution for crooked or unnaturally shaped teeth. This Invisalign procedure involves the creation of an artificial tooth that is shaped exactly like a real tooth. Patients can experience many benefits with Invisalign; one such being the improvement of self-confidence.
If you need dentures because you are suffering from some kind of an accident where your dentures were removed, or because you are wearing false teeth but they do not fit properly, then a dentist will create a denture using materials from your own mouth. The materials from your own mouth will be cleaned prior to the creation of the dentures and they will then be fitted onto your existing dentures. The dentures will be bonded together with adhesives and cement. You can also visit your dentist for a more affordable method of creating dentures, called Invisalign.
Dentists who specialize in creating dentures will use different types of materials to create dentures. For instance, if you are creating dentures for a child who has lost most of his or her teeth, the best option available to you will be dentures that are made of metal and plastic. When it comes to creating dentures, it is important that you seek the advice of a dental professional as opposed to creating them yourself. Creating dentures yourself is extremely difficult and can be potentially dangerous for the young patient as well as for the patient himself or herself.
Many dentists will suggest that denture wearers either purchase a denture cleanser from their local pharmacy or opt to have one created at home. A denture cleanser is typically composed of a mixture of hydrogen peroxide, saline, and an anti-fungal agent. It is important that you follow all instructions for use carefully, as the combination of dentures and a denture cleanser may cause some irritation to your remaining teeth. Using dentures cleansers in combination with dentures retainer dentures can also help ease the discomfort associated with removing dentures. Dentures cleansers are available at most local pharmacies, but may not be available at your dentist office.
