We at Dr. Pandit’s Clinic for Dental Excellence and Implant Center have all the expertise and experience in Prosthetic dentistry in Pune.
Dentures are artificial substitutes used to replace all or some of the lost teeth and adjoining tissues to maintain the function, health, and aesthetics of the tissues. So in simple words dentures help to replace lost teeth.
A complete denture is a dental prosthesis that replaces all the teeth and contiguous oral tissues in order to help restore the function, health, and appearance of the patient. Complete dentures can be made for the lost upper and the lower teeth at our prosthetic dentistry clinic in Pune.
Under certain circumstances, only the upper or the lower denture is made and this is called a single denture.
Complete dentures fabricated before the extraction of the teeth and inserted soon after the extraction are called immediate complete dentures.
All dentures are made of a denture base and teeth. The denture base is usually made of acrylic resin, which is usually coloured pink to resemble the oral gum tissues.
The teeth are made of acrylic resins, which are the most preferred. Teeth are available in various sizes, forms, and colours to suit the needs of the patients.
An immediate denture is constructed before teeth are removed from the patient’s mouth so that the patient doesn’t have to move around without teeth till the final denture is ready.
Constructing immediate dentures involves taking impressions (making copies) of your mouth before the teeth are removed.
When your remaining teeth are removed the denture can be inserted immediately.
Because the denture is placed over the new extraction sites it will actually prevent swelling.
The denture should not be removed for 24 hours and only by the dentist the day after you receive your new denture.
Post-operative visits will be required to check the extraction sites and make required adjustments to the dentures.
Because the mouth will change after it heals, your dentures will need to be evaluated at 3-month intervals and will need to reline to fit the changes that have occurred in your mouth.
Valplast partial dentures are gradually replacing conventional metal dentures. Today dentists are prescribing flexible material for removable partial dentures (RPDs) because it makes a better, stronger appliance faster.
Flexible material reduces chair time, eliminates invasive procedures and the cumbersome materials associated with rigid partials. In short, there is no longer any need for metal.
The material in flexible partials is perfectly suited to the variety of natural conditions in the mouth.
It simplifies the design and enables the RPD itself to balance the simultaneous requirements of retention, support, and stability.
The choice of a Valplast partial avoids the placement of metal in the patient’s mouth satisfying the patient’s interest in the metal-free denture.
