Have you lost a tooth or teeth? Dentures might be the answer to a newly restored smile. Today’s denture technology provides new teeth that are lighter and more natural-looking than they ever have been before.
Tooth Replacement with Dentures
Dentures have been an effective and popular tooth replacement option for many years. From teeth made of ivory or even wood, the denture has evolved into natural-looking porcelain set in a comfortable base that is custom-made to fit securely without adhesives. Today, your denture will be lighter weight and much less bulky than dentures have been in the past, making it comfortable and easy to wear.

A denture can be a full arc, replacing all the teeth on the top or bottom. It’s also possible to get partial dentures if only a few teeth are missing. This type of denture is usually anchored with a wire to adjacent teeth. Your denture is removable, and should be left out of the mouth at night to give your gums a rest and so you can soak the denture in an appropriate solution to keep it moist.
Caring for Your Dentures
When you receive your new dentures, your prosthodontist will give you guidelines on how to care for them. These guidelines will include:
- Brush your denture regularly with a soft toothbrush
- Clean the denture with an appropriate cleansing solution
- Keep the denture moist
- Visit your prosthodontist regularly to have the fit checked
- Visit your dentist regularly to check remaining teeth and gums
If you take good care of your denture, it will last for a long time. However, you should have it checked on a regular basis to be sure it still fits properly. Over time, the shape of your jawbone will change. This often requires an adjustment to the denture lining to keep it from becoming loose and uncomfortable. If the prosthetic teeth are damaged, you can have them replaced or repaired. Also be sure to continue to see your regular dentist to be sure any remaining teeth, as well as your gums, are healthy.
