Dentures are removable dental prostheses designed to eliminate visual disturbances and functional disorders such as eating and speaking due to tooth loss. Different types of prostheses have been used for thousands of years to fill the cavities left by missing teeth. However, today's dentures are much more developed both in terms of use and ease of maintenance. Most dentures consist of artificial teeth that attach to a plastic-based foundation that looks like gums. The prostheses can be used to close the cavity of one or more missing teeth or, if all teeth are missing, a complete set called “total prosthesis” can be used.


Removable dentures are not preferred in comparison to the implant in terms of ease of use, functionality and comfort. However, if implant treatment cannot be performed due to the patient's jaw structure, general health problems, lack of bone and gum tissue, or implant is not preferred for economic reasons; removable dentures is preferred as a budget-friendly practical solution.  


Care of Dentures

Your dentures are specially designed to suit your needs and smile. However, improper or incomplete maintenance may cause your prosthesis to deform. Dentures should be kept moist or wet to maintain its shape. The dentures should be washed after the meal and cleaned gently once a day. In addition, the dentures should be kept in the wetting solution overnight. This ensures that your dentures are clean and spotless, resulting in a good looking smile.

Preparation Process for Dentures

Before using dentures, the gums must be ready for it. If tooth extraction has taken place before taking the impression for dentures, it is necessary to wait for the healing of the wound. Your dentist will then take the impression of the fully healed gingiva and the supporting jawbone below it. Then, your dentures will be prepared in the dental laboratory.

Use of Removable Dentures

Immediately after the dentures are prepared, they can be used. Your dentist will arrange for the first one or two weeks to correct any minor problems with your dentures. In this adaptation process, your prosthesis will be adjusted for you and you will get used to using it, and learn how to use your tongue and jaw muscles to keep the prosthesis in place. You may also initially experience slight discomfort, irritation and pain due to dentures. After a certain period of familiarization, you will be able to use your dentures comfortably.
