Coping with Dentures

The ability to cope with dental prosthetic appliances depends on all of the following:

  1. Health in general
  2. Trauma to mouth/facial area or any current Physio and/ or Chiropractic treatment being undertaken at time
  3. Recent extractions of natural teeth
  4. Denture wearing history
  5. The length of time any existing dentures had been worn
  6. Health of spine and nervous system
  7. Age, occupation and diet
  8. Patients commitment to adapt to changes necessary for improved function
  9. Level of degenerative joint disease of TMJ
  10. Level of gum resorbtion
  11. Level of muscle control and ability to adapt
  12. Patient expectation you now have a false body part that is mobile and removable
  13. Grinding or clenching of teeth tension in the facial and jaw musculature

Removable teeth (dentures) full or part, are an artificial body part. They replace lost gum (bone resorbtion) and teeth, but will never have the same performance as the original. However with the know how of accurate and precision measurements, as well as the use of high quality materials and as processing techniques, we can get as close as possible. The very closest to regaining stability (particularly lower dentures) is implant technology .
