Dentures


What are Dentures?

Most of us don’t give much importance to the teeth which we lost. This is because we don’t know the problems the missing tooth can cause.

As important as to know the problems created by lost teeth, it is important for us to know how to replace the missing teeth and the pros and cons of various methods of replacing them.

In this blog, you will be reading about the traditional removable dentures, how to use them, and how helpful they can be for someone with missing teeth.

WHO CAN WEAR DENTURES?

Dentures are not restricted to a particular age group but are usually worn by people above 40 years of age.

Dentures can be fabricated for one missing tooth to several missing teeth to full arch dentures. It all depends upon your requirement and your dentist’s decision.

WHAT EXACTLY ARE THE REMOVABLE DENTURES MADE OF?

    • BPS dentures: Made of methyl methacrylate, a type of material that causes less irritation to the gums and it is the most convenient, aesthetic, comfortable, easy to maintain kind available in the present-day denture market.

BPS Dentures

What is BPS denture? 

  BPS stands for Bio-functional Prosthetic System. Made of a material called methyl methacrylate, it plays a major role in reproducing the function of your natural teeth during mastication and also speech and smile.

Why is BPS denture preferred over conventional denture?

Does BPS denture provide better aesthetics?

    Yes, the BPS dentures provide better aesthetics compared to the other dentures because they have the base which matches our gingival color to the maximum and colors can be incorporated to give better look.

Will my denture break, if it falls down?

 As BPS denture is mainly preferred for its strength, the chance of the denture breakage is very less. However, we recommend you to maintain it.


Partial Denture
