What are the types of removable dentures?

The types of removable dentures are discussed below:

  • Immediate Dentures:In this, the dentures are placed immediately after tooth extraction, providing a new set of teeth right away and giving time to make the necessary adjustment.
  • Transitional Partial Dentures:These removable plastic dentures act as a temporary tooth replacement. 
  • Removable Partial Dentures (RPDs): Removable partial dentures are made of cast Vitallium. They are less obtrusive and much lighter than the ones made out of plastic. They have a great fit and are affordable.

How to care for your dentures?

To care for your dentures, follow the steps below:

  • Visit a dentist to diagnose your oral health and adjust your denture or partial.
  • Use a soft, large nylon denture toothbrush with round-ended bristles to brush your dentures daily inside and outside as well.
  • Use denture creams instead of toothpaste, which are too abrasive and will scratch your denture. Rinse them with cold water.
  • Do not place your dentures in hot water, as they can warp.
  • You will have to get your denture checked regularly for worn teeth.
  • If you wear worn or stained dentures, then you might look older, and they will also function poorly.
  • Tell the dentist about any medications you may consume.
  • Make sure to visit the dentist as per your scheduled appointments.
  • If you have loose dentures, get them checked as soon as possible. This may cause friction and pressure on the gum tissues and bones.
  • When dentures are not in use, cover them with water, or with the help of a denture-cleaning solution, to prevent them from getting dried out.
