A denture is a removable dental treatment that replaces lost teeth and soft tissues in the mouth. Complete and partial dentures are the two kinds of dentures available. Complete dentures are utilised when all teeth are lost, whereas partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain.
Dentures are fake teeth that are removable and composed of plastic, nylon, or metal. They fit securely over the gums to replace lost teeth and prevent gaps from causing difficulties.
Missing teeth leave gaps that may make chewing and speaking difficult, and teeth on either side of the gap may grow into the area at an angle. Occasionally, all of the teeth must be extracted and restored.
As a result, you may need one of the following: Complete dentures (a full set) replace all of your upper or lower teeth, while partial dentures replace only one or a few lost teeth.,
Dentures may aid in the prevention of eating and speech disorders. If you require full dentures, they may help you feel more confident and enhance the look of your smile.
It’s also conceivable that dentures may not provide you with the desired results. Before you agree to go forward, talk to your dentist about your intentions. You can contact us via our Whatsapp line for a consultation to get dentures in Turkey.
What are complete dentures?
Complete dentures are available in two styles: “conventional” and “instant.” A typical denture is ready for implantation in the mouth around eight to twelve weeks after the teeth have been removed and the gum tissue has started to heal.
Instant dentures, unlike traditional dentures, are created ahead of time and maybe placed as soon as the teeth are removed. Consequently, the wearing does not need to be toothless throughout the healing process.
On the other hand, bones and tissues shrink with time, particularly during the healing period after tooth extraction. As a result, as compared to traditional dentures, instant dentures need more changes to fit correctly throughout the healing process and should only be used as a temporary remedy until regular dentures can be created.
What are partial dentures?
A removable partial denture or bridge comprises replacement teeth affixed to a pink or gum-coloured plastic foundation, which is occasionally held in place in the mouth by a metal framework. Partial dentures are utilised when one or more natural teeth remain in the upper or lower jaw.
A fixed bridge replaces one or more teeth by crowning the teeth on each side of the gap and attaching artificial teeth to them. After that, the “bridge” is fixed in place.
A partial denture not only fills in the gaps left by lost teeth but also keeps other teeth from shifting. A precision partial denture is removably attached by internal attachments rather than clasps to the surrounding heads. This product has a more natural appearance.

How are dentures made?
The tooth socket begins to fill up with bone when a tooth is pulled or lost, and the gum tissue heals and changes form. It takes a few months for the gums and bone to settle into a stable form. A standard complete denture is manufactured after this period, ideally 8 to 12 weeks after the teeth were removed from the mouth.
The procedure begins with creating a series of imprints or moulds of the oral tissues that will be used to support the denture. These imprints will be used to create models of the patient’s mouth at a dental lab.
The dentist and laboratory technician will gradually begin fabricating the dentures on these models, moving them to the patient’s mouth at each stage to verify appropriate fit, create a good bite, and confirm that the denture’s look and aesthetic appeal are satisfactory.
Until the denture is complete, the patient will need to visit the dentist once a week for roughly 4 to 5 weeks. The patient will need to return for modifications many times within the first month after receiving the denture.
An instant denture may sometimes be created so that the patient has something to wear the same day their teeth are extracted. This sort of denture is produced before the teeth are extracted and placed on the extraction day.
Back teeth are sometimes extracted initially, with the front teeth remaining in place until the denture is provided. Because this form of denture does not fit as closely to the bone and gum tissue as a traditional denture, it needs more modifications throughout the healing process. An instant denture is best utilised as a temporary solution until all gum and bone healing is complete.
Are there alternatives to dentures?
Bridges and implants are the other two options for replacing lost teeth. We can provide both of these options if you wish to get dentures in Turkey.
Bridges: A bridge replaces missing teeth by crowning the teeth on each side of the gap and affixing a false tooth to both crowns. Gold, porcelain fused to gold, full porcelain, or zirconium are used to make bridges. Based on the area in the mouth, bridges can only replace two to three lost teeth in a row. Bridges are classified as “fixed or permanent dentures” since they are glued in place.
Dental Implants: Implants are metal screws surgically implanted into the upper or lower jaw bone. This implant is then utilised to replace a single tooth with a crown or several teeth with a bridge attached to multiple dental implants. Implants are the most costly tooth replacement option, but they closely resemble real teeth than any other choice.
