Dental Dentures Etobicoke

Dentures serve as removable artificial teeth designed to replace missing teeth, offering a solution for individuals who have lost teeth due to accidents, illnesses, or inadequate oral care.

Types of Dentures: Complete and Partial Dentures

There are two main types of dentures: complete dentures and partial dentures. Complete dentures replace all natural teeth in an arch, while partial dentures are utilized when some natural teeth remain.

Complete Dentures

Complete dentures replace all teeth in an arch and can be tailored for either the upper or lower jaw. They rely on suction and/or oral adhesive for stability and are removable, similar to partial dentures.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are employed when some natural teeth are present but are not robust enough to support alternatives like bridges, or when multiple teeth are missing.

Both complete and partial dentures offer functional replacements for lost teeth.

Construction of Complete and Partial Dentures

Complete dentures consist of an acrylic base resembling gums, with acrylic or porcelain teeth attached. The custom-fitted base ensures stability during oral activities.

Partial dentures include a metal framework with teeth attached in the areas of missing teeth. The framework features clasps or arms that fit around remaining natural teeth, providing stability.

The Benefits of Implant-Supported Dentures

Implant-supported dentures are removable dentures secured by dental implants rather than resting solely on the gums. Anchored to the jawbone, they are recommended for patients missing all teeth in a jaw but with sufficient healthy jawbone to support implants.

Denture Cleaning and Maintenance

  1. Regular cleaning is essential for denture longevity and oral health. Daily cleaning is crucial to maintain proper hygiene:
  2. Remove dentures and rinse under running water to clear food debris.
  3. Use a denture brush or soft toothbrush with mild soap or denture cleaner to clean surfaces and between teeth.
  4. Clean gums and remaining natural teeth while dentures are removed.
