Full Dentures or Partials?


The dilemma of having to choose between full dentures or partials is really a choice that you have to make with professional advice.


Cosmetic dentists and family dentists can guide their patients as to how extensive the problem is and what the best procedure and answer would be for the patient's welfare.


What is a denture?


A denture acts as a replacement for missing teeth and tissues, and it can be taken out and put back into the mouth.


While it takes time to get used to wearing dentures, and they do not really feel like your real teeth, today's dentures are more comfortable and natural looking than they used to be.


Full or complete dentures


After the removal of all remaining teeth, and the gum tissues have had a chance to heal, a CONVENTIONAL full denture is ready for placement in the mouth about eight to 12 weeks after the teethhave been removed.


As the healing takes place, during that time you arewithout teeth.


IMMEDIATE dentures are custom created in advance by measurements and models of your jaw during an earlier visit and are inserted immediately after all remaining teeth are removed.


Although that means that the wearer does not have to go a period of time without teeth, gums and bones shrink during the healing period.


Therefore, a disadvantage of the immediate dentures is that they will require more adjustments in order to fit properly and will probably have to be relined several months after insertion because the bone supporting the teeth reshapes as it heals and causes the dentures to become loose.


Dentures are custom-made in a dental laboratory from impressions previously taken of your mouth.


Full dentures have a base in a flesh color and rests overyour gums.


The upper base covers the palate/roof of your mouth. The base of the lower denture is in the shape of a horseshoe to allow room for your tongue.


Partial dentures


Partial dentures are used when some teeth are missing and some natural teeth remain.


The dentures attach to regular teeth and replace ones thatare missing.


The dentures are constructed of tissue colored acrylic or light-weight metal alloy.


A removable partial denture/bridge is made up of replacement teeth attached to that base, and often are connected by metal framework to hold the denture in place.


This is used when there are still some healthy natural teethin the jaw.


A fixed bridge is to replace teeth by putting crowns on the teeth on either side, attaching artificial teeth to them, and cementing the bridge into place.


In addition to a partial denture filling in the empty spaces created by missing teeth, it also can prevent other teeth from changing their positions.


More natural looking is a partial denture that is removable and has internal attachments instead of clasps that attach to adjacent crowns that may have to have been placed on some of your teeth to provide anchors.


Remember that family dentists and cosmetic dentists can explain the dentures process to you in detail and answer any of your questions.


If you are seeking professional dental advice regarding dentures, it's time to call Shumway Dental Care.


Their Chandler dentists will ask you questions, examine you, and determine exactly what needs to be done to get you back to normal.
