Smile Hub Dental Clinic is very skilled at fitting partial and complete dentures if you are missing some or all of your teeth. Dentures, which can be made of acrylic, nylon, or metal, fit securely over your gums to replace missing teeth and prevent any issues that missing teeth may bring about, such as difficulty speaking and eating, unintended movement of other teeth, and sagging of the face. Dentures need to be taken out every day to be cleaned, unlike crowns and bridges. Modern dentures perfectly mimic real teeth in appearance. You can also use dental implants to secure them, eliminating issues like slipping and clicking and boosting your confidence when eating and speaking.
What exactly are full dentures?
When the majority or all of your natural teeth are lost or extracted, complete dentures are a realistic solution. Patients can support the suction that complete dentures use to adhere to the gums by using a denture adhesive. Full dentures are removable at the patient's leisure and can be cleaned and sterilised much like a partial denture. Some of our patients choose to use a few dental implants to anchor their entire dentures, which offers a more secure fit without the use of adhesive.
What are removable partial dentures?
One or more lost teeth are replaced by partial dentures. This removable device consists of a plate with artificial teeth affixed to it that is gum coloured. The denture is held in place by metal or tooth-coloured clasps that use a few of your natural teeth as anchor points. A partial denture helps prevent the remaining teeth from slipping out of position in addition to filling up any gaps caused by lost teeth. A partial denture can be put in or taken out as needed, such as to clean the device.
Your gums and any remaining teeth will remain healthy, and your dentures will remain stain-free, if you keep them clean.
After each meal, remove your dentures, clean them, and brush any remaining teeth. If this is not possible, clean them with a denture cleanser or liquid hand soap and brush them at least once a day to get rid of food scraps, plaque, and other debris.
If you use an adhesive to secure your dentures, be sure to remove any leftover glue from your gums and teeth after removing them. Continue to brush both your tongue and your natural teeth. Lastly, to disinfect your dentures, soak them in a cleaning solution overnight.

You don't want to risk someone throwing away your dentures by wrapping them in a cloth or paper towel. Keep your dentures out of the reach of young kids and animals who might mistake them for toys. Always clean your dentures to get rid of any remaining denture solution before inserting them in your mouth. Take caution when handling them because they are fragile.
