Few people want to have their teeth extracted just to look better. But when restoring the teeth is impossible because there is simply not enough tooth structure left, dentures are an alternative.
It is important from a cosmetic standpoint, however, that you need not allow too much time to lag between tooth loss and tooth replacement. Tooth loss causes the face to collapse and the mouth to sink in. At the same time, the nose appears to drop down towards the chin. Deep lines begin to from in the creases of this collapses skin, adding years to the face.
Full dentures can make you look younger because there is almost no limit to what the dentist can create with them.
Immediate Dentures :
Immediate dentures are measured for size with the natural teeth intact, and they are placed the same day as your remaining teeth are extracted. With this type of denture, you skip the try in stages that accompany the fitting of other models. Because gums and bone tend to shrink after extraction, these dentures may become loose.
Conventional Dentures :
Fitting conventional dentures typically requires three to six office visits after all of the teeth have been removed and the tissue has healed. It is up to you during these visit to pass judgment on the fit and look of the dentures. Your dentist will advise you on color, tooth type and lip position. If the color is too white, the dentures will look artificial.
Immediate Removable Complete Denture :
After extraction of teeth, shrinkage of bone takes place for the first 4-5 months and hence a temporary denture is given to the patient. This is called as immediate denture. This denture should be used for 4 to 6 months and should be replaced.
