Over time, we are bound to lose teeth and one way of replacing them is with dentures.
It is important to replace missing teeth as quickly as possible to avoid gum disease, jaw problems or other unforeseen health issues related to the functionality of your mouth.
What are Dentures?
Dentures are artificial replacements for your natural teeth and surrounding tissues. They are removable.
Types of Dentures
There are two types of dentures:
- Partial (where you have some teeth in your mouth) and
- Complete (where all your teeth have been removed).
Partial and complete dentures need to be cleaned every day otherwise plaque and tartar can build up on them and cause stains, bad breath and gum problems. Dentures can be removed for cleaning and a variety of special denture cleaners are available over-the-counter. It is recommended you massage your gums when your dentures are removed to keep them healthy.
