All About False Teeth: Important Things to Know Before Getting Them

All About False Teeth: Important Things to Know Before Getting Them

Typically, when people lose their teeth, the option of getting false teeth springs to mind. However, some of these individuals may not know the things involved in getting full and partial dentures. Luckily, Colgate.com attempts to shed light on this matter.

“With full dentures, a flesh-colored acrylic base fits over your gums. The base of the upper denture covers the palate (the roof of your mouth), while that of the lower denture is shaped like a horseshoe to accommodate your tongue.”

Getting full dentures require the extraction of all remaining teeth. While some people may balk at the thought, it is important to note that the right anesthetics will be used. Prescriptions will also be given to minimize pain and discomfort, as well as to avoid infections.

Those who plan to get full dentures also have to make a choice between conventional and immediate dentures. For conventional full dentures, patients may have to wait for several months to allow appropriate time for the gum tissues to heal following teeth extraction. Once the gum tissues have fully recovered, dentists will take an impression of the mouth, as well as a detailed imprint and a final cast model.

Dentists will then have to send the impression to the lab so the dentures can be made. Once the dentures are ready, they will be fitted with the patient, at which point dentists should be ready to make adjustments when necessary. It’s worth noting that, from the time of the tooth extraction up until the denture fitting, the patient may go completely toothless.

Those who don’t want to go toothless for a long time, though, can go for immediate full dentures, where dentures are fitted in right after all the teeth have been extracted. Such a challenging procedure is done only by exceptional dentists like Dr. Kent E. Davis. A disadvantage of immediate complete dentures, though, is that they tend to get loose over time and will require replacement, one reason why they are often referred to as temporary dentures.

Persons who are already wearing dentures for some time may also experience damages in their dentures. While the latest denture materials are more durable than their earlier counterparts, age can still cause these dentures to weaken and be vulnerable to damages. When this happens, wearers can consider getting a new set of dentures.

This is not always necessary, however, as new technologies and dental care skills now allow excellent denture repair. This can be completed in just a day, depending on the nature of the damage. To avoid going toothless in case of such emergencies, it may be wise to get a second set of dentures as back up.
