If you’re unfamiliar with false teeth dentures, they are replacements for teeth that are missing. They can be taken out of your mouth and then put back in. In most cases, it takes a bit of time to get used to them, but technology today allows people to enjoy dentures that look great. In fact, they are more comfortable than ever as well.
Both full and partial dentures are available. Depending on the teeth you need replaced, your dentist can help you decide which option is going to work best for your needs.
Full false teeth dentures include an acrylic base that fits over the gums in your mouth. It is flesh coloured, so it blends right in with your mouth. The bottom denture is shaped so it accommodates the tongue, while the upper denture totally covers the roof of the mouth.
If you need dentures, they will be custom made for you within a laboratory. Impressions are taken of the mouth so they dentures can be made to fit your mouth as comfortably as possible. Of course, even while dentures are more comfortable than ever before, it will still take time to get used to eating and talking with your dentures. Soreness, excessive saliva and a bulky feeling is normal as you get used to them.
Of course, over time, your dentures will probably need to undergo denture repairs. Normal wear and tear will occur, meaning that they’ll need to be relined and repaired in other ways on a regular basis. Your mouth will change as you continue to age, meaning you need to see your dentist on a regular basis to ensure your dentures are fitting the way that they should.
False teeth dentures come with both pros and cons that should be considered. One of the pros is that they offer you a natural, nice smile. They usually don’t look like they are false teeth anymore. You’ll also find that they are very durable, which means they will last a long time if you care for them properly. Many patients also find that using them corrects several dental problems.
On the other hand, a few cons come along with dentures. Many people find that it takes time to get used to them and speech issues may occur at first. Sores and irritation may occur, but in most cases, good dental hygiene can help you to avid this problem. Dental repairs will be needed as well, even though these dentures last a long time. If repairs do not correct the problem, you may need to replace them for a better fit.
