What is Denture?
A denture is a removable substitute for missing teeth and tissues around it. There are two types of dentures; full and partial dentures. When all the teeth are missing, complete dentures are used, while partial dentures are used when there are some natural teeth left.
Who will benefit from it?
Dentures are generally worn by people of the old age group in Nepal. Since people suffer tooth loss, toothaches, and several other problems once they age, most of the dentists recommend( complete denture ) to get a full set of healthy teeth.
You should consider dentures if you have the following signs and symptoms:
• You have chronic toothaches
• You have loose teeth
• You have red, swollen, or bleeding gums
• You have one or more missing teeth
• You are unable to speak or chew properly
• Your teeth are badly decayed
How long does it take?
The process usually takes 4-5 visits as the dentures are custom made. First, the remaining teeth need to be removed and the gum needs to be healed. Then the dentist will measure your jaw and gums to make models of your jaw. So, it usually takes about 3 to 6 weeks to get dentures.
