Dentures are dentures that can be removed and replaced. There are two types of dentures, namely complete and partial.
Complete dentures are used when all natural teeth have been lost, whereas partial dentures are used when one or more natural teeth are missing. Complete dentures are of two types, including:
1. Conventional, namely the installation of dentures after the teeth are removed and the gum tissue begins to heal, about 8 to 12 weeks after the teeth are removed.
2. Immediate, namely the immediate manufacture of dentures and use them immediately after the teeth are removed.
Partial dentures or individual dentures. Dentures consist of replacement teeth that are attached to a pink plastic base, resembling gums and connected by a metal frame. The framework serves as a hook. These dentures can be removed and attached easily.
The use of dentures can be the right choice. Incomplete teeth can interfere with the process of chewing food, talking and can reduce a person's facial aesthetics.
The first time you wear dentures, you may feel uncomfortable, loose teeth, sores on the mouth walls, increased saliva production, difficulty chewing and speaking ... But after a few weeks of use, the mouth organs will begin to adapt, so you starting to feel comfortable.
We recommend that you consult directly with the dentist, so that you can do a dental examination, choose the right type of denture for you, do dental x-rays, and you can get a complete education on the use of dentures.
For those of you who are already wearing dentures, it is important to keep your dentures clean and regularly visit the dentist.
Thus, hopefully this is useful.
