Dentures are one of the many options to choose from at Caringbah Dental Care. Made of durable materials, they can give you a smile that matches your happiness. Read on to learn more about this amazing dental equipment.
A denture is a dental appliance worn in the mouth to replace missing teeth and also their adjacent soft tissues. It is composed of false teeth attached to a plastic called acrylic, or to a metal called cobalt.
If you have no natural teeth left, an acrylic denture is generally the best for you. However if you still have a few natural teeth left, we recommend a metal denture. In a metal denture, clasps or metal wires are placed to clip around your natural teeth and stop your denture from rotating. Cobalt dentures have properties creating the perfect balance between deformation, stiffness, and elasticity, allowing them to last for a long time.
There are three types of dentures:
Complete dentures are best when there are no natural teeth left. The entire upper and lower arches are replaed with false teeth.
If there are still natural teeth left, partial dentures are often used. The dentures are connected to the natural teeth by metal clasps.
The third type of dentures are fixed, as opposed to the first two. A dental implant is first surgically implanted in the jawbone. This serves as the anchor to which the false teeth are fastened.
Each dental treatment/equipment answers to a unique dental issue, hence delivering wonderful results. Dentures not only replace missing teeth but also have the following benefits:
