A Natural Approach To Health
Living With Dentures
I had a question the other day about dentures.
A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues.
Two types of dentures are available – complete and partial dentures.
Complete dentures are used when all your teeth are missing and partial dentures are used when you still have some of your own teeth.
Complete dentures can be either “conventional” or “immediate”.
A conventional denture is made after your teeth have been removed and the gum tissue has begun to heal.
This can be placed in your mouth 8-12 weeks after your teeth have been removed.
Immediate dentures are made in advance and can be placed in your mouth as soon as your teeth are removed.
As a result, you don’t have to be without teeth during the healing period.
But, bones and gums shrink over time, especially during the healing period after your teeth are removed.
Therefore, a disadvantage of immediate dentures is they need more adjustments to fit properly and are usually only a temporary solution until conventional dentures can be made.
A removable partial denture or bridge is usually made of replacement teeth attached to a pink or gum-colored plastic base, which is connected by a metal framework that holds the denture in place in your mouth.
Partial dentures are used when one or more natural teeth remain in your upper or lower jaw.
A fixed (permanent) bridge replaces one or more teeth by placing crowns on your teeth on either side of the space and attaching artificial teeth to them.
This bridge is then cemented into place.
A partial denture fills in the spaces created by missing teeth, and it also prevents your other teeth from changing position.
A precision partial denture is removable and has internal attachments rather than clasps that attach to the adjacent crowns.
This is a more natural-looking appliance.
There is an alternative to dentures, and that is a dental implant.
Dental implants can be used to support permanently cemented bridges, which eliminates the need for a denture.
It usually costs more, but the implants and bridges more closely resemble the feel of real teeth.
Dental implants are becoming the alternative to dentures, but not everyone is a candidate for implants.
To deal with dentures, it’s beneficial to:
*Brush your teeth at least twice a day.
*Explore the use of clove oil or fresh clove to alleviate pain and discomfort.
*Explore the use of Goldenseal extract.
*Consider 180 Tea.
*Drink 6-8 cups of purified water daily.
*Eat lots of fresh fruits and veggies daily.
*Increase your raw food consumption.
*Choose organic whenever possible.
*Increase essential fats (Omega-3, Flax oil, fish oil).
*Use Dentrifice toothpaste.
*Explore the use of Arnica, a homeopathic remedy, for dental procedures.
*Decrease or eliminate toxic dental care products, like whiteners, mouthwash, etc.
*Decrease or eliminate sugars, hard or sticky candy, etc.
*Decrease or eliminate acid-forming foods and drinks (coffee, soda pop, dairy, red meat, sugar, processed foods, white flour products).
*Decrease exposure to toxic products (cleaners, laundry, personal care, etc.)
