Dentures

A denture is basically composed of two components: the artificial teeth and the artificial gums.

Several reasons are behind the loss of all or some teeth: poor oral hygiene, accident, congenital conditions, and so on. Of course this condition has important effect in the everyday life from a social and functional perspective.

Dr. Rotella - DenturesIn fact, main advantages for the use of a denture are:

  • Improve mastication and chewing ability
  • Improve self-esteem
  • Improve phonetics
  • Improve esthetics

In general, there are two type of dentures:

  • Complete dentures:
  • Complete dentures involve the replacement of all teeth and gums. They are held into the mouth by "suction". Usually the upper denture is perceived as more comfortable compared to the lower.

  • Partial dentures:
  • Partial dentures are used when some teeth are missing. The remaining teeth are used as "anchor" to achieve the stability and retention of the denture.

Both complete and partial dentures require several appointments from start to finish. It is extremely important that all the necessary steps are taken so that the final result is optimal in terms of esthetics, function and comfort.

Typical sequence of appointments consists in:

  1. Preliminary impression
  2. Final impression
  3. Bite registration and teeth selection
  4. Teeth try-in
  5. Delivery

The length of the treatment and number of appointments may vary from patient to patient. The use of dental implants has tremendously improved the treatment with dentures, in terms of retention and comfort.
