Have you recently learned you need dentures? Once you get past the idea that you need them at all, you may dread the thought of dealing with the inconvenience and discomfort that denture-wearers have complained about for years.
One problem with dentures made in the past is that the technology and materials needed to create natural-looking dentures simply didn't exist. A dentist was limited to using what was available, which unfortunately often resulted in one-size-fits-all dentures.
Comfort was another problem because dentures in the past were made of a rigid material that lacked the flexibility to conform comfortably to the jaw. This loose fit allowed movement of the denture which resulted in pain and irritation.
But if you are about to undergo denture therapy, you will be thrilled to know that updated materials, technology, and fabrication processes have vastly improved the final result. Here are just a few ways modern dentures have improved over the years.
- Customized just for you: The days of production-line dentures are long gone! Today your dentist takes advantage of updated materials to work closely with skilled technicians who will customize the size, shape, shade, and positioning of artificial teeth.
- Natural-looking materials: Today, dentists have access to a wide array of materials designed to improve your smile. The base of your denture is made to match your gum color, and artificial teeth are designed to look similar to natural dental enamel.
- Customized fit: We make modern dentures using more flexible materials that conform closely to the contours of your jaw. If you would like to prevent any movement of your dentures, we can add dental implants for stability and to provide a more comfortable fit.
