Dentures are produced by skilled dental technicians and designed to fit you perfectly. They can either be partial or full and are made from a variety of materials including acrylic, and a combination of acrylic and metal.
Some partial dentures have a base made from an innovative, flexible material which blends in with your gums and simply snaps into place.
Acrylic is a type of plastic material that can be used in the creation of Acrylic dentures. This type of material is great for dentures as it is mouldable and can adapt to the changes in your mouth over time. This is most commonly used for complete and partial dentures.
Today’s dentures are designed to be functional and comfortable. While your mouth adapts to wearing dentures, you should start by eating soft foods and practice speaking out loud to overcome any initial speech problems.
Brush your dentures with a toothbrush or a special denture brush and remember to clean your gums and any remaining teeth. Dentures should be taken out before you go to bed, but they must be stored in water or denture fluid, as they can lose their shape if allowed to dry out.
