Dentures are artificial teeth on a plate that looks like gums.
How are dentures made
One size does not fit all when it comes to dentures.
The dentures are custom made to fit your mouth only.
The denturist will take a mold of your mouth, including the teeth.
Then they will make your denture plate from that mold that it fits perfectly to your mouth shape.
It is made from a plastic resin with teeth that can be made from either resin or porcelain depending on your choice and how much you want to spend.
Once the plate is fitted it may need some minor adjustments which can be done right there while you wait.
After the adjustments are done, the denturist will then polish the plate, put some denture adhesive in it and have you put it in.
What kinds of dentures are there
There are full dentures, partial dentures, and dental implants.
If you are only missing one tooth you might be interested in a dental implant.
For two or more teeth a partial denture may be the best option, especially if all the other teeth are healthy.
A full denture consists of a top or a bottom plate. And a full set is both top and bottom plates.
Who needs dentures
Again it depends on how many teeth you need to replace as to what type of denture you need.
An example, all your teeth are bad, you would need a total extraction and a full set of dentures.
Are dentures expensive
It depends on what you choose when it comes to dentures who expensive they are.
If you have questions about dentures Toronto discuss them with your dentist.
