Dentures are typically made from acrylic. There are two main ways of making them. A conventional denture is inserted once all teeth have been extracted, and the gums have had time to fully heal. Alternatively, an immediate denture may be made and inserted immediately after the teeth have been extracted, and the gums are left to heal underneath the denture. Upper dentures have a piece of acrylic, usually flesh colored, which is attached to the roof of the mouth. Lower dentures, on the other hand, are horseshoe-shaped, so that your tongue is still able to move freely. The replacement teeth themselves are usually made from plastic, porcelain, or a combination of the two. Dentures may be created to fit over endodontically treated teeth, or alternatively fitted to dental implants to keep them fitted securely.
Dentures will eventually wear out and need to be replaced or realigned to maintain normal jaw alignment. This alignment will shift over time as the bone and gum ridges recede due to tooth extraction. It is important that you still make regular appointments with your dentist, so they can check your mouth for any signs of disease or a change in jaw alignment.
