Dentures can be used to replace all or some of the teeth. Complete dentures are dentures that replace all of the teeth and rest on the gums that cover the jawbones. Attaching such dentures to dental implants enhances their stability and retention. Partial dentures are dentures that replace some of but not all of the teeth. They are connected to the remaining teeth and also cover and rest on the gums and bones where the teeth are missing. Partial dentures can also be restored and stabilized with dental implants.
A denture can currently cost anywhere from 10,000 to 100,000 Indian rupees, depending on the material used. A tooth-supported overdenture may cost around 50,000 Indian rupees, whereas an implant-supported overdenture may cost between 60,000 and 100,000 Indian rupees.
A denture will typically last between 1 and 2 years. However, minor adjustments may be required near the end of the first year.
Dentures can indeed be integrated the same day your teeth are extracted. These are referred to as immediate dentures. A time lag of 2 to 3 months is recommended for conventional dentures to allow healing of the extraction sites.
A properly fitting denture will enhance your appearance by providing the necessary facial support. Furthermore, the teeth are optimized to make you look your best and boost your confidence. If you notice your face sagging or more wrinkles, it may be time to replace your dentures.
No, it is not normal, and it indicates that your denture is not fitting properly and is rubbing against the tissues, causing soreness. Consult your dentist to correct the problem.
