Types of Dentures
Full dentures are the typical prosthesis that people envision when they think of dentures. This restorative piece consists of a gum-like acrylic base that has false teeth attached to it. The false teeth will be custom designed to match the shade and size of your natural tooth so they won’t look out of place. Typically, this form of dentures is secured with a dental adhesive to eliminate slipping and movement.
Similarly to full dentures, partial dentures contain the same acrylic base and false teeth, but on a smaller scale. Partial dentures are used when you’re only missing a few teeth, rather than an entire row. Oftentimes, partial dentures incorporate metal clips to attach to the natural teeth surrounding your gap. The clips are extremely durable and typically don’t require a dental adhesive, but you can incorporate an adhesive for added security.
Caring for Dentures
While dentures are meant to withstand the wear and tear of everyday life, you should be cautious when handling them. When taking them out, do so over a towel so they will be cushioned if they slip out of your hands. At night, ensure you soak them in a dental solution or water to avoid them drying out. Additionally, your dentures should be brushed once per day and removed after each time you eat to eliminate bacteria buildup from leftover food particles.
