Learning the Basics – Partial and Full Dentures

dca-blog-525-Dentures_1200x630

Losing your natural teeth can lead to poor self-confidence. It can also make chewing and speaking properly difficult or impossible. Fortunately, dentures are a practical and affordable solution. With today’s advanced dentistry, both partial dentures and full dentures are natural looking and comfortable. When you’re ready to get started, you’ll need to make an appointment with your regular dentist or a dentures dentist, also known as a prosthodontist. To help you prepare for your appointment, here are answers to the most common questions about dentures.

What Types of Dentures are There?

Full dentures replace all of the teeth in your mouth. They rest against the gum tissue that covers your jawbone. Partial dentures replace only some of your teeth; they are usually designed to attach to natural teeth that are still in your mouth. Having dental implants placed into the jawbone is an option some people consider to help stabilize both complete dentures and partials.

How Much Do Dentures Cost?

Fees associated with dentures vary widely based on location and the complexity of required treatments. The best way to learn about the cost of dentures is to consult a dentures dentist, or prosthodontist. Your local dental society may be able to help you find low-cost resources.

What’s the Best Way to Care for My Dentures?

Caring for dentures is simpler than you may think. Here are the basics:

  • Brush dentures daily with a non-abrasive soap or denture cleaning paste. Never use regular toothpaste to clean your dentures; it can harm them.
  • Dentures are made of plastic and therefore can’t be whitened. Regular brushing and soaking with denture stain removal products should keep them looking their best.
  • You’ll be able to eat normally with dentures once you become accustomed to them. Start out with soft foods, then gradually add in different textures. Try using denture adhesive if your dentures slip while you’re eating.
  • Like eating, speaking with dentures takes practice. Reading aloud in private can help.
  • You may sleep in your dentures, but it’s best to take them out at night to allow your gums to rest. And you should never wear your dentures for 24 hours without removing them for hygiene.
  • If your dentures break or become damaged, don’t try to fix them yourself. Take them to your dentures dentist, or prosthodontist, as soon as possible.
