How Do Dentures Work?
With full dentures, a flesh-colored acrylic base fits over your gums. The base of the upper denture covers the palate (the roof of your mouth), while that of the lower denture is shaped like a horseshoe to accommodate your tongue.
Dentures from Absolute Dental are custom-made in our dental laboratory from impressions taken of your teeth and gums, so they fit your mouth perfectly. Your dentist will determine which of the three types of dentures described below is best for you.
Types of Dentures
A conventional full denture is placed in your mouth after any remaining teeth are removed and tissues have healed. Healing may take several months, during which time you are without teeth.
An immediate full denture is inserted immediately after the remaining teeth are removed. (Your dentist takes measurements and makes models of your jaw during a prior visit.) While immediate dentures offer the benefit of never having to be without your teeth, they must be relined several months after being inserted. The reason is that the bone supporting the teeth reshapes as it heals, causing the denture to become loose.
A partial denture rests on a metal framework that attaches to your natural teeth. Sometimes crowns are placed on some of your natural teeth and serve as anchors for the denture. Partial dentures offer a removable alternative to bridges.
What Patients Can Expect with New Dentures
As with any dental procedure, it takes some time for patients to adjust to new dentures. Patients initially may feel a little uncomfortable while eating or speaking with newly-fitted dentures, but that should fade quickly. The more time that passes, the more natural they will feel.
Here are some things you can expect after you get new dentures, which will subside quickly as you get used to them:
- Dentures feel bulky or loose. This feeling will subside the tongue and cheek muscles strengthen adapt to hold the dentures in place.
- Increase of saliva. Hypersalivation is a normal reaction to an object being placed in the mouth. This will also improve with time.
- Minor irritation in the mouth. As the mouth adjusts to accommodate your new dentures, any irritation or soreness will go away. If you’re experiencing excessive pain or bleeding, see your dentist right away. This could be a sign that the dentures do not fit correctly or other dental issues have developed.
