NATURAL DENTURE: AESTHETICS IN COMPLETE DENTURE

Vivek Jadhav, Swati Bhandari, Pooja Mundada

Abstract


Advances in the field of dentistry have opened gates to a newer esthetic world but the area of edentulous esthetics still remains quiet untouched. Successfully restoring the appearance of an edentulous patient remains a challenge. The glossary of prosthodontic term defines esthetics as the branch of philosophy dealing with beauty. (GPT-9) Characterization of denture base, as it implies, is a denture base that simulates the color and shading of natural gingival oral tissues. Natural looking dentures are appreciated by patients, and are good motivational tools for denture compliance. The glossary of prosthodontic terms defines denture characterization as modification of the form and color of the denture base and teeth to produce a more lifelike appearance. (GPT-9) Several methods have been advocated by different specialists for the reproduction of gingival characterization in artificial dentures. The method used for characterization of denture in this article is the sift-in method.
