For a child, losing a tooth is a monumental event that usually means a visit from the Tooth Fairy and some extra spending money. Unfortunately, things aren’t quite so fun as an adult, and losing teeth can be an uncomfortable reality. Linda Veal Denture Clinic in London has an answer for all your missing teeth blues. To find out more about Full Dentures, check out the blog below.

Full Dentures

Full Dentures are a great solution for teeth replacement. Full Dentures use a gum-colored acrylic to hold a set of new replacement teeth.  There are three kinds of affordable dentures, all of which strive to give patients the comfort and stability of real teeth.

Immediate Dentures

Immediate Dentures are designed and fabricated before your teeth are removed, and placed in the jaw immediately afterwards. This way you are not without teeth for any duration. As your gums heal and shift, the dentures will require adjustments for the first year.

Conventional Dentures

Conventional Dentures are designed and fabricated prior to teeth being removed from a patient. During the time in which the gums are healing, the patient will not have any teeth. Once the gums have healed and settled, it is time for the conventional dentures to be inserted.  Since the mouth has had ample time to heal, the dentures will fit comfortably. On occasion, conventional dentures may have to be relined since the mouth is always in a state of change.

Equilibrated Dentures

Equilibrated Dentures are fabricated and customized to individual patients. The movement of the jaw is unique to every individual; a denturist makes precise measurements to ensure that equilibrated dentures will perform in the most natural way. In addition to greater mechanics, equilibrated dentures have a natural look and use higher-quality denture teeth.

Bottom Line: Immediate, Conventional, and Equilibrated Dentures are all removable which means they need to be handled with care when they are not in the safety of the mouth. Dentures need to be brushed gently and daily to keep them clean and free from plaque, bacteria, and stains. When removed, all dentures need to be kept moist to prevent them from drying out and warping. During the night dentures need to be soaked in a water-based solution.  Your dentist can provide recommendations regarding cleaning products. Proper denture care will ensure your pearly smile lasts!
