Complete dentures are removable dental appliances that replace all of the natural teeth in the upper or lower jaw, or both.
Complete dentures are typically recommended for individuals who have lost all of their natural teeth due to injury, decay, or other dental issues.
There are two types of complete dentures: conventional and immediate. Conventional dentures are made after the teeth have been removed and the gum tissue has healed, while immediate dentures are made in advance and can be placed immediately after the teeth are removed.
The process of getting complete dentures typically takes several weeks, as it involves multiple appointments to take impressions, create the dentures, and make any necessary adjustments.
Complete dentures can last anywhere from 5 to 10 years with proper care and maintenance.
To care for your complete dentures, you should brush them daily with a soft-bristled brush and mild soap, soak them in a denture cleaner solution, and avoid exposing them to hot water or harsh chemicals.
It is common for individuals to experience temporary speech difficulties when first getting complete dentures, but with practice and patience, speech will gradually improve.
It may take some time to adjust to eating with complete dentures, but most individuals are able to resume normal eating habits within a few weeks.
While it is possible to sleep with your complete dentures, it is recommended that you remove them at night to give your gums and jawbone a chance to rest.
