What Are Dentures?
Dentures are used to replace your missing or lost teeth. They can bring back your lovely smile and have a positive impact on your self-esteem and quality of life. Affordable dentures come in many different sizes and varieties, but the most common names are full or partial dentures, which are exactly as they sound. Full dentures require the removal of all teeth, while partials may be used to replace a select number of teeth.
Complete dentures are made of a plastic base, which is then colored to match your gums. Attached to that base are plastic or porcelain teeth, which can also come in a variety of colors to match what you desire.
Partials are made the same way but are meant to replace a select number of teeth, which requires that they are connected to existing teeth through the use of a brace. The artificial teeth can then be colored to match the existing teeth for a natural appearance.
You’ll find that affordable dentures happen when you care for your dentures, to prevent them from becoming damaged and unwearable. Store your dentures in cool water or denture cleaner when not in use. Don’t store them in hot water as this can warp the materials. Clean your dentures daily with a soft toothbrush, dental cleaner, or soap and water. You should also rinse your gums every day to prevent gum diseases. Lastly, visit your dentist regularly to ensure your dentures are in good condition and your mouth is healthy.
