Dentures or artificial teeth are removable and custom-made substitutes that help to restore your smile. People who lose teeth would find their facial muscles drooping, but when dentures are used, it allows them to regain the face's former appearance.
Due to the latest advancements in dental technology, there has been a lot of improvement in how dentures are prepared. During the olden days, dentures used to have an unnatural look. But the modern dentures are as natural-looking as your teeth, and it is pretty tricky to make out if a person is using dentures. People lose teeth due to various reasons and most often because of tooth decay. When this happens, the dentist recommends using dentures after removing all the teeth as the decayed teeth can cause further damage and inflammation in the gums.
Dentures are prosthetics made by dentists and require special proficiency. It takes a good couple of weeks for the dentures to be fabricated. Typically this is done after the dentist carries out a dental examination to understand the oral health region thoroughly. A series of tests are conducted to determine which type of dentures will be suitable for the patient.
The dentists would then capture impressions and jaw measurements to ensure that the dentures are a good fit for the user. In order to take the impressions, standard materials are used. First, a very basic impression is taken, and with the help of these details, an accurate replica of the jaws is created. Importance is also given to make sure that a perfect fit is made for the patient. The fabrication of a denture is a very detailed and complicated process, and hence it would take some time before they are ready.
