COMPLETE (TOTAL) DENTURES
They are made for individual jaws in cases of complete loss of teeth. In comparison to partial dentures, their construction is simpler and they consist of the denture base onto which teeth are attached.
Total dentures lie directly on the gingiva which covers the bone.
The base of the denture is a part which sticks to the mucosa and is made from a very thin metal part, and a pink acrylate, the colour of which is blended into the surroundings of the mucosa. The base of the mucosa is made to be as large as possible. The chewing force which affects the artificial teeth in the dentures has to be transferred onto the mucosa and the dental lining through the base.
Since the mucosa is unable to withstand high pressure, it is necessary to distribute the chewing force onto a as large surface as possible, which is achieved by increasing the base of the dentures.
The dentures need to be taken out at least once a day and be cleaned. Most people take them out before going to bed. You should put your dentures in a glass filled with water or denture cleaner.
Regular visits to the dentist are as important for people with dentures as for people with natural teeth. All persons who wear dentures shouldget a regular dentist appointment at least twice a year.
