What are Dentures and who can use them?

Dentures in Brampton - Dr. Emil Svoboda - Brampton Dentist Dentures are used to replace missing teeth. Today's dentures are natural looking and more comfortable than ever. They allow people to look and feel nice following tooth loss. However, dentures do take some getting used to, and will never feel exactly the same as one's natural teeth. Dentures often cover more of the soft tissue area than natural teeth and will always have some movement during function. Most people accommodate to this movement and learn to speak and smile normally. Dentures must be relined as time goes by to compensate for continuing tissue shrinkage that occurs under dentures. New dentures can be constructed when the teeth of the old denture are worn out.

Are there different uses for Dentures?

Dentures can be used as "temporary devices" to allow for patients to "look nice" while underlying tissues heal after tooth extraction or implant placement. Dentures can also be used over the longer term. If they are placed immediately after surgery, they must be relined after 4 to 6 months to make them fit better. Dental tissues shrink significantly in the areas where teeth have been removed. Unfortunately, retaining sick teeth can cause serious health consequences to the body and can even cause more loss of dental tissues than tooth extraction.

Dentures "without dental implants" allow underlying tissues to continue to shrink. Dr. Svoboda considers dentures to be interim devices that allow the patient to function and smile while planning more stable treatment. Dentures "buy the patient time" until they can do something better for themselves.

Dentures that will be retained by dental implants may need additional reinforcement. This is because people with dentures supported by dental implants tend to chew with more force than those without implants. Without reinforcement, acrylic dentures can crack prematurely. Dentures are usually attached to implants 4 months after the implants are placed.
