Dentures are replacements for missing teeth; they can be extracted and replaced as well. It can take a long time to get used to dentures because they are not exactly the same as natural teeth. However, today’s dentures are more natural-looking and more comfortable than ever. There are two primary types of dentures: full and partials. The dentist must choose the type of denture that’s best for the patient, whether some or all of the teeth are going to be replaced, and the dentist must determine the procedure’s cost to the patient, as well.
When the full dentures are set, a flesh-colored acrylic base can be spread over your gums. The upper foundation denture covers the palate, the roof of the mouth, while the lower denture is shaped like a horseshoe to accommodate the patient’s tongue.
The dentures can be made and customized in a dental laboratory from impressions the dentist has taken of the patient’s mouth. The dentist must determine which of the three types of dentures are the best choice for the patient—full, upper or lower and either conventional or immediate.
