Dentures are artificial teeth designed to replace any missing tooth/ teeth. They are made of acrylic (plastic) or nylon and are supported by a special type of bone. They fit snugly over the gums and eliminate potential problems caused by gaps. When fitted well on the gum line and properly cared for, dentures can last for several years.


You should consider dentures if you need to:

  • Replace natural teeth that have been lost due to gum disease, tooth decay, or injury
  • Eat and speak better after losing your teeth
  • If you’re unwilling to go through a more extensive procedure like dental implants
  • Fill in the gaps that might get wider if your teeth are loose or shifting
  • Get a younger and revamped look – without teeth, your facial muscles can sag
  • Boost your self-esteem and confidence that comes with a broad and full smile


There are two types of dentures: full and partial dentures.

  1. Full Dentures:
    They are used to replace the entire set of teeth on either the upper jaw, lower jaw, or both. The dentist will first evaluate your oral health and takes the impression of your mouth to custom-make the denture. You’ll be asked to bite on something to check for fitting and choose the color of your new set of teeth. The process then proceeds as follows:
    • For conventional dentures: the dentist removes any remaining teeth. After the extraction, you’ll need to wait for a couple of weeks for the gums to heal usually 8 to 12 weeks or longer. The dentist then cleans your mouth and fits in the customized dentures.
    • For immediate dentures: the dentist waits for the dentures to be ready before extracting any of your remaining teeth. After the removal, the dentist cleans your mouth and immediately fits in the dentures. Once the bone and gum tissues heal, the immediate dentures require modification to fit properly. One benefit of immediate dentures is you won’t have to go without teeth during the healing period.
  2. Partial Dentures (Partial Denture Prostheses):
    These types of dentures are for patients who are missing only some of their teeth on a specific arch. They fill the gap caused by missing teeth and prevent other natural teeth from shifting position. Alternatively, the dentist may apply a crown and bridge method.



Both types of dentures need to be cleaned regularly to prevent tartar and plaque build-up that cause bad breath, stains or even gum problems. Plaque from dentures can as well spread to your natural gums and teeth and cause cavities and gum disease.
Use a soft brush to clean your dentures and area around the gum line. Besides, always remove the dentures at night before you go to bed and place them in cold water or in a denture solution for maintenance.
