Immediate Dentures at Dental Clinic London

A denture, also called false teeth, is a device for your missing teeth and their surrounding tissues. It is composed of acrylic plastic, porcelain and metal materials that closely look like your natural teeth and gum tissue.

Who needs a denture?

  • Patients who have some missing teeth.
  • Patients who want to prevent other teeth from moving.
  • Patients who do not have any teeth.
  • Patients who want to restore their smile.

Types of dentures:

  • Conventional denture - A conventional denture is placed into the mouth after the remaining teeth have been removed and gum tissue has cured. The healing process may take several weeks (say 8 to 12 weeks) during which you will have to stay without your teeth. Your dentist may recommend more time before placing conventional denture.
  • Immediate denture - An immediate denture is inserted on the same day, immediately after the natural teeth have been removed. Your dental surgeon may take a measurement to create a model of your jawbone. Though this type of denture provides the advantage of having your teeth all the time, they must be healed for several months after being inserted.
  • Partial denture - A partial denture fills the space created due to missing teeth and prevents other teeth from shifting their current position. This kind of denture rests on a metal framework that gets attached to natural teeth. These dentures offer a removable option to bridges.

The Best way to Care for Dentures:

Dentures require proper care to keep them stain-free and absolutely clean.

  • Rinse the denture after eating to remove food particles. You may place a towel in the sink or put some water so that the dentures do not break in case you drop them.
  • Use a soft-bristled tooth brush on the teeth when you clean your tongue, cheeks and mouth.
  • Clean your dentures daily by brushing and soaking them with a nonabrasive cleanser that will help to remove food, plaque and other particles. It is advisable that you do not use cleansers within your mouth.
  • Most dentures need to remain moist to keep them in good shape. You may place the denture in either water or a soaking solution overnight. Consult your dentist about storing the dentures properly during the night. Don't forget to follow the instructions of the manufacturer on cleaning as well as soaking solutions.
  • Rinse the denture before placing them back into your mouth, particularly if you are using a denture-soaking solution. These solutions may consist of harmful chemicals that can cause pain, vomiting or burns if swallowed.
  • You should schedule routine check-ups with the dentist who will suggest how often to get your dentures examined and cleaned. He may ensure proper fit of the denture in order to prevent discomfort and slippage.
  • See your dentist if the denture starts to become loose. Well, loose dentures may cause infection, sores and irritation.

Things to avoid when you wear dentures:

  • Do not use stiff-bristled brushes, harsh toothpaste and strong cleansers since these are too abrasive and may damage your dentures.
  • Toothpaste with whitening paste is abrasive and should be avoided on dentures.
  • Try not to use bleaching products because these may make your dentures weak and change their colour. Do not soak dentures in chlorine solution since it may stain and corrode the metal.
  • Avoid using hot or boiling water that could damage your dentures.
