Viewed as durable dental appliances, plastic dentures can last for many years. However, they might have to be readjusted and repaired throughout its lifespan. There are 2 types of dentures which can be found in every clinic: partial and complete. Partial dentures fill in the gaps where the missing teeth used to be. These also help to prevent other teeth from moving around.
Complete dentures, on the other hand, cover the entire row of teeth. These can be divided into two kinds—conventional or immediate. Conventional ones are for those whose teeth have been taken out after some time, giving the gum tissue enough time to heal. The process can last between four weeks to six weeks in total. Adjustments to ensure a precise fit will have to be made after the tissues have healed.
Reasons for Having Dentures Made:
- Loss of all teeth in an arch
- Loss of several teeth in an arch
- Enhancement of smile and facial tissues
- Improvement of speech
- Ease in chewing and digestion

What to Expect After Getting Dentures
Like with braces, expect that it will take some time for you to get used to the feel of having dentures. Another thing to watch out for is soreness. Please observe the first 24 hours after you have been fitted. Should it persist, it usually means that modifications in the fit should be made.
Every now and then, check your tongue, throat and the rest of your mouth area for any signs of infection. Even if you have no real teeth left, you still need to come in for check-ups so the dentist can look for changes in your gums and bones.
