When people find out that they may need to be fitted with dentures, it can be very alarming. Most people understand that dentures are basically false teeth, but do not have any understanding of how they are fitted and what needs to be done to their mouths in preparation. Many people cannot even picture what full dentures would look like. They may be surprised to see that upper dentures have thin acrylic plates, that are usually flesh-colored, that fit over the roof of the mouth. Lower dentures are shaped more like a horseshoe to leave room for the tongue. Sometimes the denture is made and inserted immediately after the extraction of the teeth, so that the gum tissue can heal around it. But if the denture is being fitted after the gum tissue has had time to heal, it may be necessary and advisable to have some pre-prosthetic surgery to ensure the best fit possible. In time, the gums around the dentures may recede, and the bone may suffer some wear and tear, too. In addition, it is possible for dentures to wear down, and it may thus be necessary to refit them. In these cases, a small amount of additional pre-prosthetic surgery may be required. Denture wearers must see their dentists regularly to check for signs of receding gums or bones, and to ensure the dentures are still fitting properly.
