A denture, also called a complete denture, is a device that is placed inside the mouth to replace your original teeth and provide additional support to your lips and cheeks.
Acrylic is used for making most dentures. They can be made in two separate ways.
The teeth could be made of porcelain, plastic, or a combination of both materials. Dentures are built in such a manner that they can fit over your teeth that have undergone endodontic treatment as well. A complete denture is attached to dental implants to give you a better fit.
Dentures will wear out over time and will have to be changed to ensure proper jaw alignment. The alignment will gradually start changing as the bone and gum ridges recede or shrink as a result of tooth extraction. If you wear dentures then you must visit us for regular dental checkups. This will help us to examine your oral tissues for any damage and to determine if you need any changes.
