Dentures are removable replacements for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. There are times and instances when people must have all of their teeth extracted from their mouths. Severe trauma to the mouth and jaw, diseases and certain conditions, and medical side-effects are all common causes of full teeth extraction. The extraction of all the teeth is never a desired outcome as all people only get one set of permanent teeth throughout their lifetimes. However, certain circumstances warrant the necessity of the teeth being extracted; this conclusion should never be made lightly.
Complete dentures are removable prostheses that replace all of the teeth within an arch. Both upper and lower sets can be used either singularly or together. Complete dentures are the least costly treatment for replacing the teeth in an entire arch. While dental implants are viewed as the “greatest solution for the replacement of missing teeth,” they are incredibly expensive. Complete dentures are not cheap, by any means, but they do provide a more cost effective solution.
With complete dentures, both the teeth and the gum tissues are replaced in order to create an aesthetically pleasing appearance. The gum tissue is created to be as close to the color of the other existing tissues within the mouth so that the dentures do not look out of place. The crowns of the teeth are also created to look very realistic. If you are having a complete denture made for just the top or lower arch, the dentures can be color matched to blend in with your other natural teeth.
