Types of Dentures and How They Work
Naturally, like any other medical procedure, it will probably take a couple of days for you to acclimate yourself with your new dentures when it comes to day-to-day activities like talking and eating. This acclimation happens because the resin requires some time to fit in properly like a glove in your mouth. But once it fits, it’s often as good as natural.
Removable dentures come in two varieties: full dentures and partial dentures. Full dentures replace a complete row of teeth (top, bottom, or both), while partial dentures are meant to replace just a portion of your missing teeth, leaving healthy originals in place.
There are various types of removable dentures such as immediate dentures, conventional dentures, and implant-supported overdentures, all of which fall under the full dentures subdivision. Partial dentures also have multiple options available as well, with transitional partial dentures and removable partial dentures being the most popular choices.
For the bonding process, we use titanium anchors as titanium is the only known metal in medical science that we can embed into organic tissue without causing any contamination or side effects. At first, anesthetic is used to numb the area of the jaw where we place the anchors. Since it’s a delicate process due to caution needed to avoid damage to nerve endings in the surrounding area, the surgical procedure can take a bit of time, anywhere from on to six hours.
Post Surgery Care
Generally, inflammation and discomfort near the implanted area are typical for the first couple of days for which the dentist may prescribe medicine. The easiest and quickest fix is to move the jaw as little as possible and not cause any undue pressure until the implanted area feels natural.
