Should You Wait Until You Have a Full Arch of No Teeth Before Getting Dentures?
Posted on 12/15/2019 by Sean Saghatchi
A mouth full of beautiful teeth is a pride for everyone who has them. It gives them the ability to be able to speak well, have a beautiful smile and also have a degree of self-confidence when speaking that others without it would not have. When most people lose their teeth for one reason or the other, they settle for staying without the tooth if it's in a location that people can't easily see, or getting dentures.
For the longest time, most people have thought that they are not necessary. However, to get that beautiful smile back, they are crucial. Most people think that you need to lose all your teeth before you get your dentures. The truth is you can either get them in such a situation, or even when you've lost a couple of teeth.
Complete dentures are classified into either immediate or conventional. Conventional dentures are used when all the teeth need to be removed. Also, the gum tissue needs to have healed quite significantly. This is about 2-3 months from when the teeth are all extracted. These are often a more permanent solution and have been specially crafted to that end. Unlike their conventional counterparts, there are immediate ones. These are prepared beforehand so that once the teeth have been removed, someone might not have to stay without having teeth and also to prevent gum and bone shrinkage.
In case you have lost just a couple of teeth, you can also get partial dentures to cover the spaces. They can either be permanent or you can also ask for removable ones. These ones are specially crafted so that they can blend in with the existing real teeth so that someone cannot make the distinction between the two. They are also crucial to keeping tooth alignment so that the remaining teeth cannot move into the space left by the missing ones.
It's critical that you seek advice from one of our dental professionals when you lose your teeth or suspect that some teeth must be eliminated. This way, we can advise you on the best course of action so that you can retain your smile and good looks.
