A denture is a removable dental appliance and a replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissue. They are made to closely resemble your natural teeth and the end result typically improves your smile. There are two types of dentures – fixed and removable.
If you have lost an entire arch of teeth (top and/or bottom), or are soon to have your remaining teeth removed because they are too unhealthy to save, you may be able to replace them with fixed dentures supported by dental implants. Patients seem to prefer fixed dentures because they look and function just like natural teeth and don’t slip when you eat or talk. Fixed dentures use implants to hold the dentures in place.
Removable dentures are a common treatment alternative for missing teeth. Removable dentures are versatile in their ability to replace any number of missing teeth and to fill out the contours of the face and lips, which shrink inward when multiple teeth are lost. Typically the denture base is made of acrylic plastic that can be tinted to match the patient’s natural gum tissues.
Digital Dentures Technology Creates Better-Fitting Dentures Faster. Denture production is complex and time consuming, and—due to changes in the patient’s gums or imprecision in craftsmanship—the result may not fit properly. Many patients require additional visits before their dentures are adjusted to a comfortable fit. With advanced Pala Digital Dentures technology, however, dentures are modeled using 3D software for a perfect fit in significantly less time. Computer-aided design and manufacturing (also known as CAD/CAM) has been making a great contribution to dental restorations. Today, CAD/CAM dental technology allows Pala Digital Dentures to improve denture quality while greatly reducing lead time and costs.
