Dentures London

Dentures (also known as false teeth) are prosthetic devices constructed to replace missing teeth. They are supported by the surrounding soft and hard tissues of the oral cavity. Conventional dentures are removable (removable partial denture or complete denture). However, there are many denture designs, some of which rely on bonding or clasping onto teeth or dental implants (fixed prosthodontics).

Dentures can help with:

Chewing ability will be improved

Aesthetics, because the presence of teeth gives a natural appearance to the face, and wearing a denture to replace missing teeth provides support for the lips and cheeks and corrects the collapsed appearance that results from the loss of teeth

Pronunciation, because replacing missing teeth, especially the anterior. Enables patients to speak better. There is especially improvement in pronouncing words containing sibilants or fricatives

Self-esteem, improved looks, and speech boost confidence in the ability to interact socially.

Types of dentures

Removable partial dentures

Removable partial dentures – are for patients who are missing some of their teeth on a particular arch.

Fixed partial dentures also known as “crown and bridge” dentures, are made from crowns that are fitted on the remaining teeth. Fixed bridges are more expensive than removable appliances but are more stable.

Another option in this category is the flexible partial, which takes advantage of innovations in digital technology.

Flexible partial fabrication involves only non-invasive procedures. Dentures can be difficult to clean and can affect oral hygiene.

Complete dentures

Complete dentures –  are worn by patients who are missing all of the teeth in a single arch. The full denture is removable because it is held in place by suction. They are painful at first and can take some time to get used to. There are two types of full dentures: immediate dentures and conventional dentures.

Copy dentures

Can be made for either partial, but mainly complete denture patients. These dentures require fewer visits to make and usually, are made for older patients, patients who would have difficulty adjusting to new dentures, would like a spare pair of dentures, or like the aesthetics of their dentures already. This requires taking an impression of the patient’s current dentures and remaking them.

Step Three : Maintenance

After receiving dentures, the patient should brush them often with soap, water, and a soft nylon toothbrush that has a small head, as this will enable the brush to reach into all the areas of the denture surface. The bristles need to be soft for them to easily conform to the contours of the dentures for adequate cleaning, whereas stiff bristles will not be able to conform very well and are likely to cause abrasion of the denture acrylic resin. If a patient finds it difficult to utilise a toothbrush e.g. patients with arthritis, a brush with easy grip modifications can be used
