What Are Full Dentures?

Full dentures, made of durable acrylic, are a traditional solution to replace all missing teeth. Dr. Vahid Bashi goes over the details in this educational video.

A full denture is a dental appliance designed to replace all of a person’s missing teeth in a single prosthetic device. Here are some key details about full dentures:

1. Material: Full dentures are typically made from hard acrylic, which is a durable and rigid plastic material.

2. Replacement of All Missing Teeth: These dentures are used when a patient has lost all of their natural teeth in either the upper jaw, lower jaw, or both. Full dentures are custom-made to fit the shape and contours of the patient’s mouth and replace the missing teeth.

3. Types: Full dentures can be classified into two main types:
– Complete Dentures: These replace all of the missing teeth in the upper or lower jaw.
– Immediate Dentures: Immediate dentures are inserted immediately after tooth extractions, providing patients with a full set of teeth during the healing period. Once the mouth has fully healed, adjustments or new dentures may be needed for a better fit.

4. Consultation and Evaluation: To determine if you are a suitable candidate for full dentures and to explore the best treatment options for your specific needs, it is advisable to schedule a free consultation with a dental professional. During this consultation, your oral health will be assessed, and if necessary, a scan or impression of your mouth may be taken to ensure the dentures are customized to fit you properly.

Full dentures are a common and effective solution for individuals who have lost all their natural teeth. They restore the ability to eat, speak, and smile confidently. If you are considering full dentures, seeking guidance from a dental provider through a consultation is the initial step to determine your candidacy and develop a personalized treatment plan.
