If you’ve lost all of your natural teeth, whether from periodontal disease, tooth decay or injury, complete
dentures can replace your missing teeth and your smile. Replacing missing teeth will benefit your
appearance and your health. Without support from the denture, facial muscles sag, making a person
look older. You’ll be able to eat and speak-things that people often take for granted until their natural
teeth are lost.
There are various types of complete dentures. A conventional full denture is made and placed in the
patient’s mouth after the remaining teeth are removed and tissues have healed which may take
several months. An immediate complete denture is inserted as soon as the remaining teeth are
removed. The dentist takes measurements and makes models of the patient’s jaws during a
preliminary visit. With immediate dentures, the denture wearer does not have to be without teeth
during the healing period.
Even if you wear full dentures, you still must take good care of your mouth. Brush your gums, tongue
and palate every morning with a soft-bristled brush before you insert your dentures to stimulate
circulation in your tissues and help remove plaque.
