What is Denture? 

Dentures are false teeth to replace missing teeth. There are two types of dentures, partial dentures, and complete dentures. Partial dentures replace one or a few missing teeth, and complete dentures are used when all teeth are missing and the denture is placed on the upper or lower gum.

Who Can Have Dentures?

You're ideal for dentures if you suffer from significant tooth loss and have healthy gum and jawbone. 

Dentures Treatment Duration

If your dentists removed teeth, your gum would need sufficient time to heal before fitting the dentures. The period varies from one patient to another, but it's typically 6 - 8 weeks. Then your dentist can take accurate impressions sent to the lab.

The dental technician will need a few days to create the permanent dentures. In some cases, the patients are looking for a temporary solution; the dentist will extract the teeth and place an immediate denture on the same day.

Dentures Side Effects & Risks 

Some signs indicate your dentures might need to be refitted or repaired; these include:

  • chips or cracks in the false teeth
  • difficulty chewing after the adjustment period.
  • changing fit over time
  • pressure sores from where the dentures are fitted into place, especially after the adjustment period
  • consistent speech pattern changes that don't go away after the adjustment period
  • odor coming from the denture.

Dentures Recovery Time 

If your dentist extract teeth, your gum will need 6 - 8 weeks to recover. During this period, the dentist will wait for your gum to heal and work on creating a permanent denture that has your gum impression.

If you're looking to replace old dentures, your dentist will need to take a gum impression, then send it to the lab to create a fitting denture. The process might take a few days to develop the new dentures. 

Another solution is immediate dentures, whereby the dentist will place temporary immediate dentures after the teeth extraction.

Dentures Success Rate:

Dentures are one of the most cost-effective treatments to replace missing teeth and have a success rate of 95%.

How Do Dentures Work?

Complete dentures - The denture will usually be fitted as soon as your teeth are extracted, which means you won't be without teeth. The denture will fit over your gums and jawbone. But if you fit the denture right after the extraction, the denture will change the gum and jawbone shape.

The dentist will take an impression of your mouth, then send it to the dental technician to create a fitting denture that matches your mouth.

Partial dentures - A partial denture is designed to fill in the gaps left by one or more missing teeth. It will clip onto your natural teeth via metal clips, and it can easily be removed and placed.

What Dentures Involve?

We will plan and arrange the procedure to suit your personal preferences and match you with the best denture dentist available in Turkey. There are a few primary steps involved in this procedure:

Here are the primary stages of the surgery:

1. Consultation for Denture placement

You will have an online consultation with your dentist. At this stage, our specialist will try to know if you're a suitable candidate for dentures.

Your health history, allergies, medications you use, your ideas about the process, and your expectations from treatment are the essential data to determine the most appropriate treatment for you at this stage.

2. Extracting teeth (if needed)

Your dentist might need to extract teeth, and your gum will need sufficient time to heal before placing the dentures because the gum swelling after the extraction will make it hard to create an accurate impression of your mouth.

You can expect that it will take about 6-8 weeks for the gums to heal. 

3. Sending impressions to the dental technician 

Once your gum has healed, the dentist will send an impression of your mouth to the lab. So the dentures are customized to fit your mouth. You will bite into a mold for proper measurement.

4. Trying the wax dentures 

After a day or two, the dental technician will have your permanent teeth set into wax according to the directions of your dental prosthetist. It will be sent to your dentist and are ready for try-in.

At this stage, you will try the dentures to see does it fit properly and naturally in your mouth. The dental prosthetist will check the dentures for fit, function, and aesthetics. Minor changes can now be made because the dentures are soft wax. 

If you're satisfied with how the dentures look, they are then sent back to the lab for a final time to have any changes made before going through final processing.

5. Final process 

Finally, after approximately two to three days, the dentures are cleaned, polished, and then returned to your dentist for a final fitting. Your dental prosthetist will make any last-minute adjustments.

This process can take anywhere from six weeks to three months, so immediate dentures may be a viable temporary solution while waiting.

What Should I Expect After Dentures Treatment?

In the first days after surgery, you should carefully follow these few instructions:

  • Avoid removing your dentures after the extractions. It may lead to the risk of swelling and prevent you from reseating the denture properly. 
  • Rinse the dentures under cold water, and use toothpaste to clean them, not soap. 
  • Keep your dentures moist if you remove them. 
  • A few days after the extraction, you can take out the denture at bedtime. Rinse and clean it as instructed. 
  • Follow your dentist's instructions and medication plan.
  • You will follow a soft food diet for the first few days following the extraction. 
  • Contact your dentist if you feel any soreness in any spot besides the treated area. 
  • Your dentist would require a follow-up a week after the denture placement if it needed adjustment. 

Things You Should Consider Before Dentures

  • A week before the procedure, you should stop taking Aspirin and any other medication that causes blood thinning.
  • If you are allergic to any drugs, you should inform your surgeon as soon as possible.
  • Avoid smoking before the surgery.
  • Consuming any alcoholic beverages can affect anesthesia. So it would be best if you did not take in anything alcoholic before surgery.
  • Follow your doctor-prescribed medication that adjusts your current medicines.

    I had a wonderful experience booking my dental work with Flymedi. I needed a fair amount of work done and was required to visit twice but luckily the clinic was so hygienic and professional that it was a no-brainer to return. The dentist was great, he explained the procedure very clearly and I knew exactly what was going to happen in each session. The procedure itself was totally painless which was a first for me having had bad experiences with dentists in the past so that was really encouraging. I would highly recommend Flymedi's services as they exceeded my expectations (:

    I was considering several different options, however Abud was by far the most committed and helpful of all the agents I'd been in discussions with. Everything was organised for me and I was guided throughout and if I was feeling apprehensive about anything or had any questions Abud was always on hand to answer my questions and give reassurances. I'm so happy with the results of my operation and I was left overwhelmed by how friendly and supportive everyone was throughout. If you're considering using flymedi then I can honestly say you'll be delighted with the service both before during and after your surgery.
