Missing teeth should not be taken for granted. As a matter of fact, you should have them replaced as soon as possible. One of the options for replacing missing teeth is getting dentures. Dentures are dental appliances that are either full or partial. There is also what you call implant-supported dentures. As the name implies, the dentures are affixed to titanium posts that are surgically inserted into your jawbone. Let’s check out the different types of dentures.
When you have lost all of your teeth the ideal Dentures 33548 for you are full dentures. This removable dental appliance is perfect for individuals who have lost a full set of teeth. If you lost a whole arch of teeth in your upper jaw your dentures will have a gum-colored base made of acrylic and this will be placed at the roof of your mouth. When it’s the bottom teeth you’ve lost a horseshoe-shaped base will be placed at the floor of your mouth. It is shaped this way so that it will not cover your tongue.
When you still have remaining teeth left what you need is a set of Partial Dentures 33548. Based on the recommendations of the American Dental Association, this type of dentures can be anchored to your real teeth in a number of ways. The most common way of attaching dentures to natural teeth is through the use of metal clasps. They can also be attached to crowns on your existing teeth.
