What is a specialist in dentures called?


A specialist that specializes in dentures is known as a denturist or a denture specialist. While many stick to the blanketed term “dentist”, many dentists will continue on in their education and expertise in specialty areas of oral healthcare like dental surgeons, orthodontists, and denturists.
 
Denturists are specific professional dental healthcare specialists that focus on the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of their patients’ missing or surgically removed teeth. Unlike other specialists that work in the dental field, denturists stick to what are known as “mechanical solutions” to dental issues.
 
The bonus to being a denturist over other dental specialists is that you do not need a referral to see a denturist. They will be with you from the beginning to the end of your treatment with dentures, so you know you are in great hands.

What types of dentures are there? 


Dentures are the custom-made dental appliances that are completed for each patient’s mouth structure if they have missing or removed teeth. Dentures help to restore the mouth’s function and appearance for patients who have lost teeth or had them surgically removed.
 
Dentures come in two different types; either full or partial, and they are designed to replace teeth within the patient’s mouth, some of which do not need a full set of dentures, as they are only missing a few. Many of our patients have stated that the completion of their dentures has allowed them to feel more confident in their smiles and As a result, they are able to eat and chew many foods once more and no longer have to deal with gum or tooth sensitivities.
 
The two different types of dentures that will be recommended to the patient depending on their oral issues include:
 
– Full Dentures
Full dentures are created with a plastic base and are color matched to match the patients’ gum color, so they will look like an exact replica. Full dentures are also created to support a full set of teeth, allowing you to have the same function as you would with a natural set of teeth. Another form of a complete denture is known as a traditional full denture, which stays put in the mouth due to a seal that is put on the gums. Another way to attach the dentures is to dental implants, if the patient already has some in place.
 
– Partial Dentures
Partial dentures are the second option and can be made out of plastic or a metal frame. Partial dentures are created to support a partial set of teeth that need to be replaced. Partial dentures are held in by a clasp that rests carefully against the natural teeth. It then adapts to the position it’s in.

What are dentures made of? 


With modern-day technology and products, today’s dentures are now created out of:
 
– Acrylic Resin
Acrylic resin is one of the more popular types of products that dentures are made out of. This is due to them being less expensive than their competitor, which is porcelain, and they are much lighter to wear. Acrylic resin dentures are a comfortable and cost-effective solution to replace any missing teeth.
 
– Porcelain
Porcelain is a type of ceramic glass-like material that has many advantages to it if chosen:
 
Translucent appearance
Color-matched easily to the patients’ natural teeth color
Easier to adjust too, feels like natural teeth
Harder and longer-lasting than their counterparts

Are full dentures the same as implants?


While some would say they are similar in the benefits they provide, they are different techniques to apply custom-made dental appliances. Permanent dentures are an alternative to dentures. While they aren’t the exact same thing, dentures can be fixed to dentures if needed. Dental implants are surgically placed implants that replace the roots of any missing teeth. They create a stable base for permanent dentures to affix to.
