Whenever we meet a person for the first time, a smile is one of the first things we notice about that person.
A smile with missing teeth can affect a person’s confidence when interacting with others.
Something as simple as a missing tooth or 2-3 missing teeth can result in a lack of confidence that may affect all aspects of our lives.
Denture is an artificial removable prosthesis which replaces some or all of the natural teeth
Complete Dentures– Upper or Lower removable prosthesis which replaces all of the missing teeth and structures of maxilla or mandible.
Partial Dentures– Upper or lower removable prosthesis which replaces some of the missing teeth of the maxilla or mandible and is supported by natural teeth and usually a wire clasp in most cases.
Partial dentures are made up of only acrylic or with metal to reduce the bulk and increase the strength, known as cast partials.
Flexible Dentures– Flexible dentures are made up a softer material and without metal clasps as to blend in with the natural gum colour. They are more resistant to cracks and break than normal dentures.
Immediate Dentures– As the name suggests, Immediate dentures are placed as soon as the natural teeth are removed and the patient does not have to go home without teeth. It also aids in healing of the gums post-extraction. A reline or adjustment is needed once the gums have healed for a better fit.
Implant Overentures– Implants are the next best thing to mimic natural tooth. When a full arch rehabilitation is not possible due to financial or physical constraints, Implant overdentures are the next best thing. An Implant over denture can be placed on a small number of implants (usually 4) and a denture is fabricated on top of it, giving it stability, retention and aesthetics.
Reline– Reline is a procedure used to resurface the tissue side of a denture with new base material for better adaptation.
Rebase– Rebase is a process of replacing all the base material of a denture, and only the original teeth and their arrangement remains.
Repair– A denture repair is done, so that it can closely re-establish the function and aesthetics before the break, which can happen if a denture falls, or cracks while eating something hard, or a tooth can come out.
