Removable complete and partial dentures

Dentures are essential mouth guards that replaces teeth and supporting structures with a removable prosthesis that can be removed as per the will of the patient.
These can be replacing all of the missing teeth (COMPLETE DENTURE) and can also replace some of them (PARTIAL DENTURE).

Benefits of having a Denture

They help to smile confidently.

Replacing lost teeth not only improve your smile but also increase your self-esteem. This will bring back your old beautiful profile look.

They aid in chewing.

Dentures help to improve masticatory function and help patient to take food according to the will.

Also aid in speech.

Missing tooth create spaces and gap which affects speech. These impairments in speech can be solved from the moment you receive a denture.

Also prevent bone and gum loss.

Loss of teeth eventually result in loss of gum and bone surrounding them. That is the reason why it is always said to get the gap filled as soon as it is formed, with dentures being one of the option.

Complete Denture

Complete dentures can be either immediate or conventional. They help to fill out your face which may have looked sunken due to loss of teeth.

Dentures not only improve dental health but also improve your physical health as they helps to bring back your chewing efficiency.

Immediate dentures can be inserted soon after the removal of teeth so that patient doesn’t want to stay toothless during the healing period.

However, these can be considered only as a temporary solution as it may require frequent adjustments during and after the healing period and should be replaced with conventional denture in future.
Conventional dentures are placed 8 to 12 weeks after teeth extraction when the gums and bone are found to be in adequate health to receive them.
