Dental disorders including tooth decay, infections, gum diseases, cavities can cause severe damage to the tooth structure. When the infection or the cavity is beyond repair, the dentist may recommend an extraction. Extraction or injury may lead to one or more missing tooth. The gaps left by these missing teeth can interfere with eating and speaking. They can also cause misalignments and increase the strain of the adjoining teeth. It is, therefore, advisable to replace a broken tooth. Dentures are removable or fixed prosthetic teeth made of acrylic, nylon or metal. They fill the space left by the missing teeth and eliminate potential problems caused by gaps. A complete denture replaces all the upper or lower teeth, whereas a partial denture comprises of just one or more missing teeth. Dentures treatment can also improve the overall appearance. A complete denture is, usually, fitted immediately after removal of the original teeth. They may require re-adjustment as the gums and bones of the jaw heal and alter shape. A trial denture will be created from the impressions taken of your mouth. The shape and color may be adjusted before the final denture is produced. A partial denture has clips or metal clasps attached to the artificial teeth, which hold it securely in place. They are removable but the clips may rub against the skin of the gums causing mouth sores. The clasps may need to be adjusted. The cost of dentures may vary with the individual requirement. With time most patients adjust to their dentures.
