Dentures are a conventional, age old, tried and tested method of replacing missing teeth for the geriatric patients. Having complete dentures helps with chewing as well as supporting one's facial structure and improving ones speech. With immediate dentures, you can have a full set of teeth while you are waiting for your gums to heal and your bone to realign after having teeth removed. So, immediate dentures are a great alternative during that time.
Conventional dentures are removable, however there are many different denture designs, some which rely on bonding or clasping onto teeth or are fixed over implants.
Dentures require constant maintenance with soft relining every 2 to 3 years. Your gum tissue and jaw bone shrink with time. This causes the denture to become loose resulting in a poor fit. A visit to your dentist for an oral health examination will determine the cause of your ill-fitting dentures. Take a consult on how to improve the fit of your ill-fitting denture with implant support.
Indications: Removable or Implant-supported Denture, for the Senior Citizens who want to enjoy life to the fullest!
