Dentures for Teeth Replacement
Denture is an artificial prosthesis for the replacement of missing teeth. Denture is designed as a removable prosthesis and can be removed for maintenance and cleaning by the patient. Removable dentures are made for one, several or all teeth in one or both jaws. There are several different types of dentures and we have written a detailed blog article which describes different types of dentures.
Indications for denture treatment include cosmetic replacement of missing teeth and restoration of the oral functions of chewing, speech and swallowing. Advantages of denture treatment include lower treatment cost, ease of fabrication, ease of maintenance and repair. Disadvantages of denture treatment include the fact that dentures require learning on how to use them and adaptation on the patient’s part. Partial dentures can cause plaque accumulation around the teeth and increase risk for tooth decay and gum disease. Patients who use dentures need to follow good oral hygiene and preventive practices.
