What are dentures?
Dentures are prosthetic teeth attached to a pink acrylic base that mimics your gums. They can replace some or all of the teeth in your mouth. Dentures make it easier to speak and chew if you have several missing teeth.
Are there different types of dentures?
There are three main types of dentures to choose from:
Conventional dentures, also called full dentures, replace all of the teeth in your mouth. These removable dentures are made up of prosthetic teeth attached to an acrylic pink base. When designed properly, conventional dentures look and feel like your natural teeth.
If you still have some healthy teeth left in your mouth, partial dentures are likely the best option for you. They have a pink-colored base that’s attached to metal pieces that hold the dentures in your mouth.
Implant-supported dentures are attached to several dental implants — small titanium posts that Dr. Rastegari places in your jaw to replace the roots of your teeth. They provide a stable base for your dentures and hold them in place.
What are the benefits of dentures?
Dentures offer a number of physical and emotional benefits that can help you lead a better quality of life. They can help:
- Enhance your appearance
- Replace missing teeth
- Support your facial muscles
- Prevent facial sagging
- Boost self-esteem and confidence
- Improve chewing and speech patterns
Implant-supported dentures may even help prevent bone loss in the jawbone.
How do I care for my dentures?
With proper care and regular dental checkups with Dr. Rastegari, your dentures can last for up to eight years or more. To keep your dentures in the best condition possible, you should:
- Brush your gums with a soft-bristled brush after every meal.
- Remove and rinse your dentures thoroughly after you eat.
- Make sure you remove any denture cleaner before putting them back in your mouth.
- Never use hot water, bleach, or toothpaste on your dentures.
