Dentures are prosthetic teeth that are used by patients who have lost most of their natural teeth. Dentures are made from a base that is composed of gum-colored acrylic. It supports prosthetic teeth made from dental-grade ceramic, which can be customized to a great extent. Together, they form a complete replacement for one’s dental setup that appears and functions like the natural teeth.
Partial dentures are used to replace a specific number of teeth in the mouth. They are used when the patient still has a significant number of natural teeth left and healthy enough to be retained in the mouth. Partial dentures are held together by a metal framework, which gives them the necessary strength and stability. Partial dentures are removable just like any conventional dentures, making them simple to use.
The dentist will take a highly precise mold of your teeth using a hand-held scanning tool. It will be shared with a dental laboratory, where the dentures will be fabricated from dental-grade ceramic and acrylic. It may take a few weeks for the dentures to be completed, after which the dentist will place them in your mouth and check for fit and comfort. If they are ill-fitting, they will be altered in terms of contour, and the dentist will hand you perfectly-fitting dentures.
