Everything You Need to Know About Dentures

What Are Dentures?

Dentures in Turkey are removable appliances designed to replace missing teeth and restore your smile. They come in two main types:

  • Complete Dentures: These are used when all teeth are missing. They can be either “conventional” or “immediate.” Conventional dentures are made after the teeth have been removed and the gum tissue has healed, which may take several months. Immediate dentures are made in advance and can be positioned as soon as the teeth are removed.
  • Partial Dentures: These are used when some natural teeth remain. A partial denture fills in the spaces created by missing teeth and prevents other teeth from changing position.

Benefits of Dentures in Turkey

  1. Improved Appearance: Dentures can dramatically improve your appearance and smile.
  2. Enhanced Oral Function: They can make eating and speaking easier than you could without teeth.
  3. Support for Facial Muscles: Dentures support the structure of your face and prevent the sagging that can occur when teeth are missing.
  4. Boosted Confidence: Many patients with a complete set of teeth feel more confident in social situations.

How Are Dentures Made?

The process of making dentures involves several steps:

  1. Dental Impressions: First, our dentists take impressions of your jaw and measure how your jaws relate and how much space is between them.
  2. Model Creation: Models, wax forms, and plastic patterns are made in the exact shape and position of the denture. You will try this model several times, and the denture will be assessed for colour, shape, and fit before the final denture is cast.
  3. Casting: The final denture is cast, adjustments are made as necessary, and you receive your new dentures.

Caring for Your Dentures

Proper care of your dentures is essential to keep them in good shape:

  • Daily Cleaning: Clean your dentures daily by soaking and brushing them with a non-abrasive denture cleaner.
  • Handle with Care: Avoid bending or damaging the plastic or the clasps when cleaning.
  • Regular Checkups: Schedule regular dental checkups to examine your dentures and oral health.
