Dentures are removable prosthetic devices designed to replace missing teeth and their surrounding tissues. They are usually made of acrylic resin and can be used to replace a few missing teeth or an entire set of teeth.

Types of Denture

There are several types of dentures available, including:
  • Full dentures: Also known as complete dentures, these replace all the teeth in the upper or lower jaw or both. They are made to fit snugly over the gums and are held in place by suction or an adhesive.
  • Partial dentures: These are used when only a few teeth are missing. They consist of one or more artificial teeth attached to a metal or acrylic base, which is then anchored to the remaining natural teeth.
  • Implant-supported dentures: These are attached to dental implants that are surgically placed in the jawbone, providing a more stable and secure fit than traditional dentures.
  • Immediate dentures: These are made in advance and placed in the mouth immediately after the teeth are removed. They are meant to be temporary until the gums have healed enough for a more permanent solution.

The eligibility for dentures is determined by the dentist in Hialeah, FL, who will assess your oral health, the extent of tooth loss, and the condition of the gums and jawbone.

In general, dentures are recommended for individuals who have lost most or all of their natural teeth due to decay, injury, or disease, and who have healthy gums and adequate jawbone structure to support the dentures. It is important to maintain good oral hygiene and to have regular checkups with the dentist to ensure the proper fit and function of the dentures.
