It is a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. It is made of acrylic resin and sometimes a combination of various metals.
Full dentures replace all teeth, while partial dentures fill in the gaps created by missing teeth and prevent other teeth from shifting. Complete dentures are “conventional” or “immediate.” A conventional denture is placed in the mouth one month after all teeth have been extracted to allow proper healing, while an immediate denture is placed as soon as the teeth are extracted. The downside to an immediate denture is that it may require further adjustments once healing is complete.
Who Needs Dentures?
Candidates for dentures have lost all or most of their teeth. A partial denture may be ideal for those who still have some natural teeth. A denture improves the ability to chew and speak and supports the facial muscles. This considerably improves facial appearance and smile. You can get denture service from Narre Warren Denture.
What happens when dentures are inserted?
A dentist can insert a complete full denture when all teeth have been lost or extraction sites have healed (up to eight weeks or more). The process of placing a denture takes approximately one month and five consultations: first the initial diagnosis is made, an impression of the bite is taken and a wax mold is made to determine the vertical dimensions and the appropriate position of the jaw; a swatch is placed to ensure proper color, shape, and fit; Finally, the patient’s final denture is placed and then some adjustments are made.
