If you have lost several teeth, you may consider dental implants, but the cost may be out of reach. However, all is not lost because dentures from Dentistry on Parkdale in Hamilton, Ontario, are the perfect solution to complete your smile.
Unfortunately, just like some dentistry procedures, dentures don’t have a good reputation — the stereotype in movies doesn’t help either. In reality, however, dentures are a popular fix for lost teeth. Whether full or partial, a denture can rejuvenate your smile, restore your speech, and help you chew better.
There are different kinds of dentures, but they fall into two major categories: partial and complete dentures.
Complete dentures, also known as conventional dentures, come into play when you have lost all your teeth on either or both jaws. On the other hand, partial dentures may be the best option for individuals who have lost part of their teeth. You can say that partial dentures are similar to dental bridges, except that they are removable.
Dentures are created using plastic resin; the appliances have a gum-colored base fitted with natural-looking “artificial teeth” to replicate your natural teeth. Dental technology enables the customization of dentures to accentuate the peculiarities of the patient’s mouth. Customization also allows dentures to fit in your mouth snugly.
While your dentures could be firmly fitted, you could also use adhesives to enhance the bite force or stability. Moreover, adhesives might be beneficial if you have a dry mouth or have an unusual demand for your mouth, like singing or public speaking. However, adhesives shouldn’t be a fix for ill-fitting dentures.
