A lot of reasons are there to have your tooth extracted and there are even more ways to replace those missing tooth’s with an artificial one, One of the ways in which you could replace the tooth you have lost is a Denture
But first what is a denture?
A denture briefly is the replacement of missing teeth (Removable Partial Denture) or the replacement of the entire teeth’s in a jaw (Complete Denture)
Dentures are usually removable but with Dental implants being a preferable solution to replace a missing tooth, Implant supported dentures came to light, and here at the best dental clinic in Dubai it’s the most preferable treatment for our patients.
Lets start with the Removable Partial Denture which Replaces a single or multiple missing teeth.There are two types of Removable partial Dentures named behind the material being used to fabricate them:
Acrylic removable partial denture: this is fabricated using acrylic, used to replace single or multiple teeth, it is removable and held in position with a help of a clasp that grasps a selected tooth, this acrylic partial denture could also be used after extraction of teeth in order to maintain function and/or esthetics until proper wound healing has occurred and other treatment could be done. It usually involves two visits to be complete the First visit is where our Prosthodontist will take an impression of both jaws to fabricate a mold (study Cast) then he will draw the design and set to the Dental labs technitions the position and where to place the Clasps, On the Second visit after the arrival of the Denture it will be kept in place and checked for proper fitting and stability and after assuring that the denture fits properly and is stable with no movment our Prosthodontist will check the occlusion before providing you with set of instruction to maintain and clean your new denture
The other type of denture’s is the complete denture which is used to replace the entire of teeths in a jaw and here there are also two types :
The process of making a complete denture here at the best dental clinic in Dubai will take up to 5 Visits where our prosthodontist will work closely with the dental lab to assure a stable denture : The first visit our prosthodontist will make a primary impression, which will be used to create a custom tray, this custom tray will be used on the second visit is to take the final impression on this second visit our prosthodontist will properly mark the area’s of your mouth which he will use to take the stability and retention from , before the third visit the dental lab will create a custom base and a rim which will be made out of wax and on this wax rim the teeth will be placed later these will be created from the mold of the final impression. The third visit is for what we call Jaw relation, here our prosthodontist will accurately measure, and identify the relation between your upper and lower jaw in order to create a natural artificial smile just like the one you had before on this visit the color for your artificial tooth will be selected according to your preference will keeping in mind your hair, skin and eye color. Fourth visit here after receive a wax try in with the teeth placed in the proper position according to the measurement’s our prosthodontist’s made on the third visit on this visit occlusion,esthetics and speech will be checked and it is the last chance for you as a patient to request any modification to be made, including the change of the tooth color. The fifth and last visit is the placement of the denture and making sure it properly fit and function before checking the occlusion and removing any high points, after making sure everything is up to your expectations our prosthodontist will give you list of instructions to maintain and clean your new denture.
