Dentures

A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. In simple words dentures are false teeth made to replace teeth you have lost.


There can be many benefits of getting well-fitting denture mentioned as follows:

• Dentures helps and restores your youthful appearance

• Dentures allows you to eat most of the foods you love

• They help you feel better about yourself

• Dentures eliminates embarrassment that you might feel due to loss of natural teeth

• They enable you to speak more clearly

• Dentures may also to improve digestion

Advances in dentistry have made many improvements in dentures. Now dentures are more natural looking and comfortable than they used to be. But they still may feel strange at first. In the beginning, your dentist may want to see you often to make sure the dentures fit perfectly. Over time, your mouth will change and dentures may need adjustment or may need to be replaced. Be sure to let your dentist handle these adjustments.


Two types of dentures are available

1. Complete Dentures

2. Partial Dentures

Complete Dentures

Complete dentures are used when all the teeth are missing. Complete dentures can be either “conventional” or “immediate“.

Conventional Dentures

This type of dentures are made after the teeth have been removed and the gum tissue has begun to heal, a conventional denture is ready for placement in the mouth about 8 to 12 weeks after the teeth have been removed.

Immediate dentures:

Partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain. Unlike conventional dentures, immediate dentures are made in advance and can be positioned as soon as the teeth are removed. As a result, the patient does not have to be without teeth during the healing period. However in case of immediate dentures, bones and gums shrink over time, especially during the healing period following tooth removal. Therefore a disadvantage of immediate dentures compared with conventional dentures is that they require more adjustments to fit properly during the healing process and generally should only be considered a temporary solution until conventional dentures can be made.

Partial Dentures

A removable partial denture or bridge usually consists of replacement teeth attached to a pink or gum-colored plastic base, which is connected by metal framework that holds the denture in place in the mouth. Partial dentures are used when one or more natural teeth remain in the upper or lower jaw. Not only does a partial denture fill in the spaces created by missing teeth, it prevents other teeth from changing position. A precision partial denture is removable and has internal attachments rather than clasps that attach to the adjacent crowns. Due to these internal attachments they have a more natural-looking appearance.

Flexible Dentures

Flexible partial dentures are the comfortable, beautiful, and affordable choice. It was long thought that removable partial dentures had to be rigid to be effective. The innovation of the Valplast® Flexible Partial allows the restoration to adapt to the constant movement and flexibility in your mouth. This is the underlying thinking behind Valplast’s innovative flexible, removable partial denture. The flexibility, combined with strength and light weight, provides total comfort and great looks!
