DENTURE: Dentures are removable prosthetic devices used as a replacement of missing teeth and are supported by surrounding oral tissues. They are the artificial teeth which ensure normal functioning of your mouth. There are two main categories of dentures – Complete and Partial Dentures.
Dentures at Marigold Dental
At Marigold Dental and under the guidance of Dr. Jasdeep Sandhu we have the expertise and latest technology to make comfortable and durable dentures for your mouth. You are just an appointment away from getting a natural looking and comfortable set of dentures at an affordable price. The dentures are customized and made to fit precisely by the dentist and our dental prosthetist.
Types of Dentures
» Complete Dentures: Complete dentures are usually advised when all the teeth are missing. They are a highly customized and specifically designed set of teeth and gum line. Complete Dentures fit over the upper ridge and roof of your the mouth and the lower ridge shaped like a horseshoe. These are conventional dentures that are removed at the night for cleaning.
» Partial Dentures: Partial dentures may be recommended when some natural teeth are missing. They consist of replaced missing teeth attached to artificial gum connected by a metal framework which helps to hold the denture in place. Missing teeth can also change the position of other teeth. A partial denture will help overcome this problem by keeping the teeth in position.
» In first appointment we are going to analyze your gums and teeth to access your suitability for dentures. The shape of your mouth and gums can change over time, so this appointment is still necessary even if you already wear dentures.
»At this next visit the doctor will first take the impressions of your jaw to analyze how well they relate to one another and whether they have spaces in between them. We work with you to select the size, shape, and shade of the teeth for your new denture. A wax model is then prepared to check the fitting.
»At this appointment, you will see the mock-up/trial of your denture. Final denture of the teeth you selected earlier will be prepared in the wax model. This is not the final stage, but it is just a trial denture for you to have an idea how your denture will look like after finishing.
» Prosthetic teeth are built in an advanced technology lab. After the trial insertion, the final denture is fabricated in the laboratory. If implants are placed the final denture which contains the lock mechanism is then inserted in your mouth. The lock mechanism is engaged with the implant’s head so that the denture gains additional retention and stability. If no implants the denture is inserted and checked for comfort.
The type of denture depends on the suitability and requirement and differs from patient to patient. Complete dentures are recommended to be implanted when all the patient’s teeth on the lower are to be replaced. Implants are not always necessary for a full upper denture as they fit with natural suction. Partial dentures are used when a patient still has some of the natural teeth. There are many other dentures like customized dentures (looks more natural and are expensive), immediate denture, economy denture, etc.
You can wear your dentures at night but it is recommended to remove them while sleeping. A recent study published in the Journal of Dental Research found that nursing home residents who wore their dentures to sleep were 2.3 times more likely to be hospitalized or even die of pneumonia as those who did not sleep in dentures.
A minimum of two dental visits per year is recommended by most dentists for good dental hygiene. Visit Marigold Dental Clinic for a regular check-up and our experts will tell you all the required information about the right time for dentures and all information related to cost and process.
