Dentures in Maidenhead & High Wycombe
A denture is used to replace a single missing tooth, more than one missing tooth, all all the missing teeth. When a denture is used to replace one or more missing teeth in a jaw it is called a partial denture and when it is used to replace all the missing teeth in a jaw it is called a complete denture. You could have a combination of partial or complete dentures depending on how many teeth are missing and in which jaws.
Clasps and Their Role
Partial dentures may have clips (clasps), to help hold them in. Depending on where they are, some of these clips may shows when you open your mouth or smile. Complete dentures don’t have clasps and may need a denture fixative that can be purchased from supermarkets. Another way of securing complete dentures that can considerably improve the retention is to have overdentures secured to implants.
Why Should You Replace Missing Teeth?
You may be asking yourself why you should replace missing teeth. There are several reasons; your appearance, the gap left by a missing tooth can mean greater strain is put on the teeth on either side, and it could also mean your ‘bite’ could be affected. The change to your bite could be as a result of the teeth next to the space leaning into the gap as well as the teeth in the opposite jaw moving into the gap. This can lead to several problems like food getting packed into the gap, which causes gum disease and tooth decay, and it can also alter the way you chew.
