Carefree, Cave Creek, Scottsdale, AZ: A denture is a removable dental appliance replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissue. They are made to closely resemble your natural teeth shape and gums to help with your chewing and to enhance your smile. There are two types of dentures – complete dentures & partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when all of the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain. A Partial denture not only fills in the spaces created by missing teeth, it prevents other teeth from shifting. If done by a skilled dentist and if patient takes proper care, dentures can last many years. If the denture becomes loose over time, we can reline or rebase the denture so that it fit well again.
Many times, patients can experience a crack or chip on the dentures. It is advisable not to repair your denture at home with any kind of glue as it is hard to leave a smooth finish and the rough edges can irritate your delicate gums when you try to wear a self repaired denture. Also when the broken pieces are not put together correctly, this can affect the fit of the denture and can change the occlusion (bite). Dentist can look at the cause of the breakage and fix it accordingly. Also it is not uncommon for the tooth to become loose and come out of the denture or partial denture. In that case, save the teeth and it can be easily fitted back on its place by the dentist. Alternately dentist could replace the old worn teeth on the denture or partial denture. It is very difficult to fix when the denture or partial denture break in to two or three pieces. If a major failure occurs, the denture has to be remade. Also it is important to look at patient’s occlusion or bite and identify all the unnecessary forces on the dentures to avoid future problems like crack or tooth popping off.
Making a full denture or partial denture is a highly technique sensitive process and should be done only by a qualified dentist who has the background education in the art and science of this process. Dentist with specialty training in Prosthodontics can easily accomplish all the important steps necessary in the successful fabrication of your denture. A denture can be considered successful only when it is well made by utilizing highest quality teeth and acrylic, support patients lip and cheeks thus enhancing the smile and provides a natural looking smile, enables patient to chew and talk well. Dental implants can be utilized in selected situations when patient desires to improve the fit and retention of the denture.
