Dentures

A denture is a replacement for missing teeth and the surrounding tissues.  They are a removable prosthesis which gives back the missing few or all the teeth along with some pink gingival tissue as well. After the extraction or the removal of the teeth, if they are not replaced in time the remaining teeth start drifting which leads to malalignment resulting in slow deterioration of the remaining teeth as well. 

 

Advantages of Dentures

  • Dentures provide a natural and confident appearance. They provide a cohesive look and provide you with a radiant smile. 
  • Dentures are an excellent option, even if you don’t have the healthiest jaw, teeth, or gums.
  • Dentures are easily maintained.

Types of Dentures treatment in Mumbai

A] Complete Dentures/ Full Dentures:

2. Metallic Denture :

They come with the metal plate instead of the acrylic. They are extremely thin and hence prevent gag reflex. The only drawback is the metallic or silver appearance in the palate region which is miniscule as they are hardly visible unless removed. So rest assured the patients won’t be subjected to any trouble with a well fitted denture.

3. Fiber Reinforced Denture:

These dentures are available with a lifelike material which appears like natural gums and hence provide more esthetic appearance than the normal acrylic dentures.

4. Characterized/ Pigmented Dentures:           

Many patients have a high smile line, i.e. the gums are visible when they laugh or talk. In such cases when the pink acrylic is visible it makes it socially unattractive. Hence, in such cases, the Prosthodontist at Procare Dental Clinic in Mulund provides the solution by staining the acrylic in such a manner that it looks like the natural gums making it esthetically natural and eye pleasing.

B] Removable Partial Dentures treatment 

These dentures are used when only a few teeth are missing; they are either acrylic or cast partial dentures.

  1. Acrylic Partial Dentures:              

These are simple acrylic material plates with the teeth and a few metallic wires adapted to the teeth which anchor the remaining natural teeth and help the dentures stay in place.

2. Cast Partial Dentures:

These come with a casted metallic plate placed on the tissues and the remaining natural teeth so that they are compatible and comfortable as the deteriorating effects of the clasps are eliminated. In some cases even the clasps can be replaced by the esthetic vinyl versions so that they are not seen.

3. Flexible Dentures:

These dentures are soft and rubber like vinyl material, which even if bent does not break. They get adapted to the mouth well and are more comfortable for the patients. But they have their limitations as well.
