What are Complete Dentures?
When you get a complete set of dentures, you will receive both a top and bottom set of false teeth in an acrylic base that matches the color of your gums. The dentures will fit easily over your gums, and while they may take a little getting used to, you can quickly see the benefits. There are two types of complete dentures that your dentist may discuss with you when you make the decision to move forward with this process.
- Conventional full dentures: This type of denture can be used once any gum or mouth tissue from remaining tooth removal has fully healed. It is important to note that the healing process may take several months and you will be without teeth for that time.
- Immediate full dentures: Immediate full dentures can be given as soon as any of your remaining teeth have been removed. Prior to your tooth removal, your dentist will fit you for dentures and take models of your jaw so the dentures will be ready without any lapse. Many people enjoy this option because they will never be without their teeth, but it is important to note that they may need to reline their dentures in a few months because the bones that support the dentures can move during the healing process.
Benefits of Complete Dentures
The reason that so many people choose complete dentures is simply that they provide so many benefits. Though it may take some time for you to get used to your dentures, whether it is just a few weeks or a few months, you will find in due time that you have made the right choice. A full set of dentures can help improve your smile and will support your facial muscles to prevent you from looking older. Additionally, full dentures can assist you in eating and speaking more comfortably.
