Dentures - False Teeth
Getting the right dentures can be a difficult assignment, especially when the originals fit so well! Redmyre take extra special care of patients with dentures to ensure the perfect fit.
What are Dentures?
Also known commonly as false teeth, dentures are a prosthetic replacement for missing teeth. A mould is taken of the patients mouth and using a plastic resin an artificial support is created. Prosthetic teeth are attached to the support. Together the support and the teeth are what we call dentures. The dentures use the oral cavity of the gums and light suction to hold themselves in place. They allow a patient who has lost a number of teeth in a row to fill the gap and provide the same function as original teeth.
How Do I Care for My Dentures?
Dentures need to be cared for in the same way as normal teeth. Regular daily cleaning is required, this being made easier since the dentures are removable. Both the dentures and the gums should be cleaned so as to prevent any leftover food pieces starting to decay and cause infection in the gums.
