Losing your teeth can be the worst feeling ever and one suffers from low self-esteem because of the smile they have to hide from the people around them. Not only this, it even becomes difficult to eat certain foods and pronounce specific words accurately while speaking. However, dentures are a solution to your problem.
Why are dentures used?
Dentures are a kind of tooth replacement technique and are the artificial teeth that are made for your mouth and created by the dentists in order to replace the lost or removed natural teeth. There can be partial as well as full dentures as they can be used to replace all the teeth or a few of them. The dentures are custom-created to fit into your mouth and are made to suit the natural teeth.
The material used in dentures
Earlier, the artificial teeth were made from porcelain or plastic but the latest used dentures are made up of a hard resin material. The material used in making the dentures Miami is generally more delicate than natural teeth and can be easily cracked if not cared for properly. The material can also wear off more quickly than the natural teeth and must be replaced every five years or as suggested by your doctor.
The structure used to hold the artificial teeth and matches the natural gum line is made up of the similar resin material that fits tightly on the natural gum line.
Partial and full dentures:
You can opt for partial dentures when your surrounding natural teeth are not strong enough to support other structures such as dental bridges or crowns or in case one or two teeth are missing. The partial dentures are not permanently fixed into your mouth, so they can be easily removed while sleeping.
On the other hand, full dentures are used for full mouth tooth replacement. They can be fitted on the top or bottom gum line with help of an adhesive and are also removable just like the partial ones.
Just like your natural teeth, you must take care of your dentures. Although the dentures are artificial in nature, but the bacteria and plaque can still develop on them and may cause damage to the existing gums and teeth.
In order to clean them properly, take them out and run clean water to remove any food particles, brush them with mild toothpaste and rinse them before placing it into your mouth again.
