Dentures are prosthetic replacement devices for a missing tooth or teeth. Today, their property as a quick fix dental solution have corroborated their skyrocketing popularity. In some cases they are literally taken from off the shelf and retro-fitted to match the specifications of the user. Other times, however, they are built from the ground up through a series of eight steps which include modelling, carving, filling, trimming and polishing.
Dentures primarily consist of two parts: a base which acts as a foundation that holds the artificial teeth in place and a set of properly aligned artificial teeth that function as regular teeth and can help the user chew and bite food. A partial denture is designed to replace a specific region within the mouth, upper or lower. They are usually devised to be removable and cater for those with partial dental issues. Permanent dentures on the other hand, are tightly fixed and screwed in place to avoid shifting. In most cases they are formed to cover the entire set of teeth in the mouth and replace the unhealthy set of teeth.
An accomplished dental practitioner not only fixes dentures but also educates the user about relevant dos and don’ts that must be followed or avoided to prolong the life of their dentures.
