Dentures, or false teeth, are prosthetic devices made to replace lost teeth, and which are supported by surrounding soft and hard tissues of the oral cavity. Dentures types vary depending on what you need them for. Removable partial dentures are for people who have lost some of their teeth on a particular arch. Fixed partial dentures, better known as “crown and bridge”, are made from crowns that are fitted on the remaining teeth to act as abutments and made from materials to look like the lost teeth. Fixed partial dentures usually cost more than removable dentures. Complete dentures or full dentures are used by people who have lost all of their upper and/or lower teeth. Natural dentures are life-like, two-tone dentures that are made of biocompatible acrylic that is strong, durable and lightweight. They are much thinner than conventional dentures.
The Process of Traditional Dentures
Generally, when dentures are made it will take four sessions to complete. Your dentist will take impressions to see how your teeth are shaped, how the overbite relates to the lower teeth in your mouth, and then determine how to shape the dentures. The second appointment determines how much you and your dentist want the teeth to show as well as the bite. The third appointment is used to try on and make initial adjustments and then the fourth you get your actual Dentures.
So why does this process take so long? All of the information needed to effectively make dentures that are right for you can be made in a day or in four weeks times. The difference? Most Dentists need to send the information out to a commercial lab. It takes a long time as labs could work for five, ten or as many as twenty dentists at a time depending on the type of lab.

The newest addition to this line of dental advancements is the introduction of magnetic dental systems. Magnets placed over tooth roots or dental implants hold the dentures in position. These magnetic dentures are highly suitable for they are firm but not rigid. This makes insertion and removal of dentures quite easy even for elderly patients.

How Do Same Day Dentures Work?
First, your dentist will take a set of measurements of your head, facial structure, and dimensions of your inner mouth. These dimensions will be used to determine the proper size of your denture teeth. Next, comes the fun part, where you are able to select your new denture teeth. Then, your dentist will begin extracting the unwanted teeth. While the sockets are still bleeding, he will cement the individual dentures directly into the boney ridge.

Problems with dentures can occur at any stage of their life cycle. No matter how careful you are with your dentures, eventually they are going to need repair. A denture repair service can fix a plate that has been broken into several pieces.
If you have a broken plate, immediately put all of the pieces in a glass of water at room temperature and get it repaired as soon as possible. Keeping the denture in water will prevent the form from shifting even more. When the dental expert fixes your broken plate, he or she will use specialized glue and tools to put the pieces of the denture together perfectly. From there, it will be adjusted so that it fits in your mouth again. If this repair job is not done expertly, the plate will not sit properly and can cause sores, difficulty eating, and trouble speaking.
