Dentures

Dentures, often referred to as false teeth, are removable prosthetic devices designed to replace missing teeth and restore the function and appearance of your smile. Whether due to tooth decay, gum disease, or tooth removal, dentures offer a way to fill the gaps left by teeth missing and improve oral health. At Namo Dental, we specialize in creating custom-fit dentures that mimic the look and feel of natural teeth, ensuring comfort and enhancing aesthetics.

We welcome your inquiries; please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.

At Namo Dental we offer two fundamental types of dentures:

Complete Dentures

Complete Dentures are used when all natural teeth in either the upper or lower jaw are missing. These full dentures are designed to cover the entire arch, with upper dentures covering the palate for stability and lower dentures contoured to fit the shape of the lower jaw.

Partial Dentures

Partial Dentures are ideal for individuals who still retain some of their natural teeth. These removable partial dentures are crafted to fill the spaces left by missing teeth and are secured to the remaining natural teeth with clasps or attachments, helping to prevent the remaining teeth from shifting.

Steps to getting a set of dentures

Dentures are a valuable solution for individuals who have lost all or some of their natural teeth and wish to restore their ability to eat, speak, and smile with confidence. When properly crafted and maintained, dentures can provide function and aesthetics for many years.

  1. Initial Consultation: Our dental prosthetist or dental technician will assess your needs, discussing the types of dentures that best suit your situation, whether complete, partial, immediate dentures, or implant-supported dentures.
  2. Impressions: A detailed impression of your mouth is taken to ensure your new dentures fit comfortably and accurately.
  3. Fitting: After your dentures have been crafted, a denture fitting session ensures they fit properly, making adjustments as necessary for optimal comfort and function.
  4. Adjustment Period: It may take some time to get accustomed to wearing dentures. Initially, you might be advised to eat soft foods and gradually reintroduce other foods as you adjust to your new dentures.
  5. Maintenance: Proper care involves regular cleaning with a denture brush and denture adhesive if needed, to keep your dentures in good condition and ensure their longevity.

Steps to getting a set of dentures

Dentures are a valuable solution for individuals who have lost all or some of their natural teeth and wish to restore their ability to eat, speak, and smile with confidence. When properly crafted and maintained, dentures can provide function and aesthetics for many years.

Design

Complete / Partial dentures are typically constructed from high-quality dental materials, such as acrylic resin, and they are individually tailored to conform to the unique contours of the patient’s oral cavity. They consist of two primary components:

  • Denture Base: This component of the denture simulates the appearance and function of the patient’s gums and oral tissues. It provides support and stability for the artificial teeth and is usually made from pink acrylic material.
  • Artificial Teeth: The artificial teeth, crafted from materials like acrylic or porcelain, are affixed to the denture base. The number, size, and arrangement of these teeth are meticulously designed to restore proper function and aesthetics.

Fitting Process

The process of obtaining full dentures generally involves several key stages:

  • Initial Consultation: During the initial consultation, a dentist or prosthodontist evaluates the patient’s oral health, takes impressions of the oral cavity, and discusses the patient’s preferences and expectations.
  • Impressions: Accurate impressions of the oral tissues are taken to create a precise mold of the mouth. These impressions assist in designing dentures that fit comfortably and securely.
  • Fittings: Multiple fittings may be required to ensure a proper fit and functionality. The dentist makes necessary adjustments to enhance the comfort and functionality of the denture.

Final Placement

Once the denture is completed and both the patient and dentist are satisfied with the fit and appearance, the final denture is provided to the patient.

Adjustment Period

It’s common for patients to experience an adjustment period when they initially start wearing dentures. This period may involve some discomfort, difficulties with speaking or eating, and increased salivation. With time, most patients adapt to wearing dentures and become more comfortable with them.

Care and Maintenance

Proper care and maintenance of dentures are vital. This includes daily cleaning, regular check-ups with the dentist for adjustments and repairs, and proper storage of dentures when not in use.
