The most important advantage of immediate dentures is that you never need to appear in public without any teeth. Patients who elect to receive immediate dentures should be counseled about the challenges of wearing removable complete prostheses for the first time, along with surgically associated soreness, swelling, bleeding, bruising and other unpleasant consequences of dental extractions. Mastication and speech may also be awkward and challenging for the first few days (sometimes even weeks) of the immediate denture wearing experience. It does provide a certain amount of function and esthetics for the patient. But, Approximately 6 months after receiving your immediate dentures, the dentures will have to be rebased, relined or a new denture will have to be made.
n false teeth) are prosthetic devices constructed to replace missing teeth, and are supported by the surrounding soft and hard tissues of the oral cavity. Conventional dentures are removable. However, there are many denture designs, some of which rely on bonding or clasping onto teeth or dental implants (fixed prosthodontics).
You may find that flexible partial dentures are a more comfortable fit than other removable partial dentures, especially if you’re still new to wearing replacement teeth. Not only that, but most partial dentures are usually made with metal parts which can sometimes show. Flexible dentures do not use any metal parts so tend to look and feel a lot more natural.
Removal Partial Dentures
A removable partial denture or bridge usually consists of replacement teeth attached to a pink or gum-colored plastic base, which is sometimes connected by metal framework that holds the denture in place in the mouth. Removable partial dentures possess clasps of cobalt-chrome or titanium metal or plastic that “clip” onto the remaining teeth, making the RPD more stable and retentive. Not only does a partial denture fill in the spaces created by missing teeth, it prevents other teeth from changing position.
The advantages of implant supported dentures are numerous and include;
• Stability– Because the implants are embedded into the jaw to support the dentures they remain stable and secure, unlike anything you could ever hope for when using dental adhesive.
• Improved functionality– Once the implant secured dentures are in place, patients are able to speak, bite, and chew far more easily than they could with conventional dentures.These dentures can withstand a far greater biting force and the wearer will find they can eat a wider diet without being limited to softer foods.
