What is the difference between partial and complete dentures?
Partial dentures are dentures that fill one or more gaps in your mouth. There is a clasp that attaches to the surrounding teeth to hold the partial denture in place.
Complete dentures replace a full arch of missing teeth. Complete dentures attach to your gums using suction. Denture users often also use special adhesives to keep the dentures in place.
What can I expect during the denture fitting procedure?
Once you and your dentist determine that dentures are right for you, measurements will be taken, and the results are used to create a custom denture to fit your mouth.
If necessary, your dentist will extract any tooth or teeth.
Once the denture is ready, and after any extractions necessary have healed, you will return to the practice, and your dentist will fit the new prosthetic teeth to your mouth.
How do I keep my dentures clean?
You remove your dentures at least once a day, or ideally after every meal if possible, and brush them with a soft-bristle toothbrush.
At night you remove and soak your dentures in an anti-bacterial solution.
Do not clean your dentures using hot water, stiff brushes, or harsh cleaners such as bleaching toothpaste as this may damage the dentures.
