A good smile comprises sleek, neat, and adequately rooted teeth. Your overall face looks dramatically dependent on your jaw and teeth structure. However, there are various problems associated with teeth like improper rooting, extra teeth, and much more.
Nowadays, science has a solution to almost everything. Hence, all your dental problems can be solved by visiting the dentist to guide you about the best procedure. Dentures are also a solution to a missing tooth, which is also one of the dental problems, but you should know what dentures are.
Dentures are false teeth to support your jaw when you have lost your teeth due to any variable cause such as injury or any disease such as diabetes. They are removable and can be taken care of on an everyday basis. Dentures are supported by soft tissues which surround them and give them a good grip on the jaw.
There are various types of dentures. One of them is used for cosmetic purposes called cosmetic dentures, while the other is temporary dentures which are a mold of teeth and can be fixed and removed called conventional dentures.
Before deciding if dentures are the best option for you, based upon your condition, you can explore many options available in the field of prosthodontics. Still, in the following conditions, dentures are indeed the best option for you.
The Entire Arch of Teeth Is Missing
Dentures are considered as the best for you when one of the arches of teeth is completely missing or is likely to disappear in the future. This can be in diabetes mellitus, genetic dysfunction, or plague developing in the teeth leading to loss of teeth.
Intraoral cancer is also one of the conditions when you can look forward to getting dentures implanted. Recall that intraoral cancer results in loss of teeth. In addition, it also causes loss of intraoral tissue and effects in the formation of the edentulous dental arch. Your dentist will consider dentures as the best option for filling the portion of lost tissue as well.
Suppose your dentist has installed an improper dental implant previously, and surgery is impossible as it can damage nerves and vessels surrounding your jaw. In that case, you should consider denture implants as the best option.
Conclusively, explore various options before concluding your decision to get dentures. Moreover, take extra care of hygiene after you get your dentures done. Consult your dentist to explain the whole process of getting the perfect jaw-fit dentures for you.
