Types of dentureBasically, denture (false teeth) is prosthesis device to replace missing teeth. The denture is supported by the surround soft and hard tissue. It is the most economical and easy-to-make prosthesis. Denture can be further divided into complete denture (denture to replace all missing teeth) or partial denture (denture to replace a few missing teeth)
Beside denture, there are other options to replace missing teeth:

 

Pro and cons of having a denture:

Pro:

  • Simple to make (no surgery/cutting your adjacent teeth)
  • Economical
  • Easy to clean
  • Produce good aesthetic and function

Cons:

  • Feels like a fake teeth (Can be taken out of the mouth)
  • Uncomfortable for the first time wearer
  • Cannot bite very hard or sticky food
  • Interfere with your speech initially
  • Need to be taken out at night
  • It can be loose (if the remaining alveolus bone is less)
  • Have to make a new one with it’s loose and uncomfortable

 

Basically we have 3 types of denture:

Acrylic Denture

Conventional acrylic denture (Plastic denture)
  • The ‘pink’ part is purely made of plastic
  • Look natural
  • Simple
  • Thicker on the palate and tongue
  • Sometimes loose and needed stainless wire to grab hold to the remaining teeth

 

045-denture02
Cobalt chrome denture

Cobalt chromium denture (Metal denture)
  • The ‘pink’ part is supported by a metal frame with clasps to attach to the remaining teeth
  • Thin especially on the palate area and more comfortable
  • Rigid and quite retentive
  • Not so aesthetic as you can see some clasp coming out
