Full Dentures – False Teeth

If for any reason you lose all or most of your teeth, full dentures may be a viable tooth replacement option for you

Full dentures are synthetic teeth designed to fit in your mouth to help you easily do all routine activities, such as eating and talking. Normally, the loss of teeth tends to impair a person’s speech. Wearing full dentures, or so-called false teeth, can help you correct that problem.

Each full denture is made of two main parts: a part that rests against your natural gum and then the prosthetic teeth. For replacing a complete arch of missing teeth, full dentures may be your most practical choice.

As a total replacement for your teeth on the upper or lower or both jaws, full dentures are designed to look like your natural teeth. Although they are artificial, and won’t feel exactly like natural teeth, full dentures are a good and practical dental solution. They can restore one’s ability to live a complete life by enabling them to talk properly, enjoy food again and more.

Full dentures have been a solution for decades to support facial structure and avoid a sunken facial appearance. There are 3 different types of full dentures you can get.

Conventional dentures

Conventional dentures are your regular full dentures. To get conventional dentures, your dental prosthetist would have to extract your real teeth at least 8 weeks in advance. This time is necessary to allow your mouth tissue to heal from the extraction before the dentures can be fitted.

Immediate dentures

These are full dentures that are inserted immediately after the removal of your natural teeth. Immediate dentures are temporary dentures so you won’t have to go around toothless while waiting for your full dentures.

Over-dentures

Implant retained dentures offer stability and support for anchoring removable dentures, either full or partial. These dentures stay firmly in place while chewing and conversing but can be easily removed for cleaning.
