What are complete dentures?
With a full set of dentures, you will receive a top and bottom set of false teeth in an acrylic base that matches the color of your gums. The set of dentures will fit over your gums easily. At first, this may take a little getting used to, but you will quickly begin to see the benefits of your dentures.
Your dentist may discuss with you the two types of complete dentures available in order to make a decision that is best for you. The two types of complete dentures are as follows:
- Conventional full dentures: Once any gum or mouth tissue from the remaining tooth removal has fully healed, you can use this type of denture. The healing process may take several months. It is important to understand that you will be without teeth for that time.
- Immediate full dentures: As soon as any of your remaining teeth have been removed, you can use immediate full dentures. Your dentist will fit you for dentures and take models of your jaw prior to your tooth removal so the dentures will be ready without any lapse. This option is preferred for many because they will never be without their teeth. However, they may need to reline their dentures in a few months because the bones that support the dentures can move during the healing process.
What are the benefits of complete dentures?
There are various reasons why so many people choose complete dentures. It may take some time to get used to dentures. However, you will find in due time that you have made the right choice. A full set of dentures will improve your smile and support your facial muscles to prevent you from looking older. Full dentures can also assist you in eating and speaking more comfortably.
