Modern Dentures are More Comfortable Teeth Replacements

DenturesMost dentures are acrylic based. While the idea of using replacement teeth has been around for a very long time, science is working very hard to make them more comfortable. For many people, the hard surface of the denture is a source of discomfort. The rubbing of the acrylic, which has no give, against the soft tissue of the gums can be particularly uncomfortable if the dentures are not well fitting. It is for this very reason that we will ensure that they are a perfect fit for your mouth before you leave the office.

More than what people think

Discomfort, difficulty removing and replacing the device, and trouble adjusting to the replacement teeth are the main reasons why people stop using them or have to return to the dentist's office. The goal of Affordable Aesthetic Dentistry is to make sure patients do not have to come back for readjustment, and so we pay close attention to how they fit from the start. There are also other alternatives, to dentures, that patients can explore.

Dentures have been changing, and we expect that they will continue to change to become ever more comfortable and easy to use. Today there are competing solutions, like dental implants, which are often more costly but provide a more permanent solution. There are also other types of dentures, like soft dentures, which some patients use if they are unable to get used to having the hard acrylic in their mouth all of the time.

A patient's comfort, when dealing with a long-term solution for teeth, is a paramount concern for us. Thus, we will examine all the options for tooth replacement with the patient. While traditional dentures certainly have some disadvantages, they have been around for a very long time for one simple reason. They work well to replace teeth and give people back the full use of their mouth for chewing, and speaking. Here are a few of the advantages of getting dentures.

Denture Advantages

Dentures today are far more functional than they have ever been before. In the past, people would get these “false teeth” so that they were able to chew. However, as modern medicine has progressed so too have their functionality. They are now fitted in such a way that they make chewing easier, not just possible, and in a manner that prevents slippage from occurring.

Additionally, dentures are now custom fitted in our dentist office so that they are extremely esthetically pleasing and do not look bulky or change the face shape at all. Loss of bone due to a lack of teeth is a primary concern that can be easily addressed with dentures.

By taking the place of teeth, these devices act to support the jawbone and the muscles in and around the mouth. This helps to keep the gums, jawbone, and muscles healthy and prevents premature aging. With extreme care, we will fabricate dentures that are the perfect for your mouth, both in form and in fitting. Finally, they restore a person's smile and give them back a boost of confidence. With technology allowing for dentures that look like your natural teeth, we will have you smiling again in no time at all.
