Dentures are economic alternatives to dental implants or dental bridges sometimes and can replace from only one tooth to complete dentition (complete dentures).A denture or a complete denture as it is often called, is an appliance that is inserted in the mouth, replaces natural teeth and provides support for the cheeks and lips.
In some cases dentures are the only option left, but there are very few instances that we can not use the help of dental implants to hold dentures in place securely. With the new trend of using smaller size titanium implants in prosthodontic dentistry, almost every denture can be used more efficiently when retained by mini dental implants inserted into the jaw bone in a one hour procedure.
Dentures over a normal course of time need to be replaced or realigned
in order to keep the jaw alignment normal. The alignment will slowly change as the bone and gum ridges recede or shrink due to the extraction of the teeth. Regular dentist examinations are still important for the denture wearer so that the oral tissues can be checked for disease or change.
