What Are Dentures?
Dentures are artificial replacements for a few missing teeth or the entire dentition, hence they are called removable partial dentures and removable complete dentures, respectively. There are implant supported Dentures as well.
What Purpose Do Dentures Serve?
They support the lips and cheeks which helps in giving a youthful and natural look to the patient.
How Much Time Is Required?
For the complete replacement of the set of teeth, complete dentures are done. The process conventionally takes place 8 to 10 weeks after the removal of teeth, as the gums take time to heal after the process of teeth removal.
Do Dentures Need To Be Cleaned?
Just like regular teeth, dentures also should be brushed daily in order to remove food particles and plaque.
