Full and Partial Dentures
Dentures are a wonderful addition to the lives of many people, bringing with them substantial benefits that boost a person’s quality of life including health and appearance. They not only restore lost functionality but also improve image and even tighten the facial muscles. If you are missing some or all of your teeth, especially those that line the upper front row, then you probably know the social discomfort that comes from not having these valuable teeth, possibly leading to feelings of awkwardness or even shame when seen in public. For some, the issue of missing teeth is just too much and they even go as far as to refrain from smiling, which is not a good habit for maintaining peace of mind as well as personal happiness. With dentures, not only can you restore your teeth but also restore the look of having a natural oral appearance which contributes to presenting a wholesome smile to others. If you have to restore any number of teeth in the front row, then owning a pair of dentures is crucial to maintaining that look of a healthy mouth that is vital to self-esteem.
Dentures are removable prosthetic devices constructed to replace missing teeth, and are supported by surrounding soft and hard tissues of the oral cavity. A full denture, also called a complete denture, replaces all of the natural teeth and provides support for cheeks and lips. By replacing missing teeth, dentures not only support sagging facial muscles, but also improve a person’s ability to speak and eat. Full dentures are divided into two categories – conventional and immediate – depending on when they are made and inserted into the mouth.
Conventional dentures are made and inserted after the remaining teeth are removed and the tissues have healed. Immediate dentures are inserted immediately after the removal of the remaining teeth. The advantage of immediate dentures is that the patient does not have to be without teeth during the healing period. However, immediate dentures may require adjustment to fit properly after gums shrink from the healing period.
A removable partial denture fills in the space created by missing teeth and fills out your smile. Removable partial dentures usually consist of replacement teeth attached to pink or gum-colored plastic bases, which are connected by metal framework, and attach to your natural teeth with metal clasps or precision attachments. Precision attachments are nearly invisible, but often require crowns on your natural teeth for a precise fit.

Dental bridges are false permanent teeth that are used for filling dental gaps caused by missing teeth. They are usually anchored to the adjacent healthy teeth with cement and resin or metal bands. The quality of the teeth, position of the dental gap, and condition of the teeth at the two sides of the gap decide which type of dental bridge is suitable to replace the missing teeth.
Different types of dental bridges are available in a wide budget range. As it is a safe way to substitute replacement tooth for a better denture profile, convenience, appropriateness, and proper fittings are essential pre-requisites for quality bridge fitting. The cost of Dental bridges may therefore vary depending on the material, position of the bridge placement, etc.
