dentures mcphersonDentures are a common dental appliance used by countless people today, just as they have been for many years.

However, the options available today have improved upon the appliances of the past. The experts at our Hillsboro dental office can help you find the best solution for your dental health needs. Learn more about dentures to see if they might be right for you.

Type of Dentures Are Available

People can be missing teeth for a range of reasons. In some cases, they might have fallen out due to a person’s age, or perhaps because they were not cared for properly. The teeth could fall out because of injury, illness, accidents, and a host of other reasons. Some or all the teeth might be missing. Therefore, there are different types of dentures to accommodate different patients.
Traditional dentures, or conventional dentures, are those that are used after all a person’s teeth have been removed and the gums are healed.
Partial dentures are used for those who are missing only some of their teeth.
Immediate dentures are made and inserted as soon as the teeth have been extracted. The tissues are then allowed to heal beneath the denture.
Upper dentures are for the upper teeth, and they have a plate that colors the roof of the mouth. This plate is generally the color of the roof of the mouth, so it is less noticeable.
Lower dentures leave plenty of room for the tongue.
The dentures often called false teeth, are made from porcelain. However, they could also be made from plastic, or a combination of these two materials. When created, the dentists work to make sure they fit well into the patient’s mouth, as there is no “one-size-fits-all” approach to dentures.

How Long Can Dentures Last?

When taken care of properly, dentures can last for many years without any issues. However, over time, they are going to wear away and need to be replaced. In addition, they might need to be realigned to ensure the patient’s jaw alignment remains normal. By continuing to go to regular dental exams to have the dentures checked, it can ensure you have fewer issues with the dentures. Patients with dentures should be sure to clean them properly daily.
