Dentures are removable devices that help replace missing or decayed teeth. Many people have a misconception that dentures won’t look and feel like their original teeth. However, the fact is that modern dentures are natural looking and more comfortable than ever.
How Modern Dentures Look and Feel
Modern dentures can be custom-built to match the color, shape, and size of your natural teeth so that they look and feel like your real teeth. They will help you perform your routine activities like speaking, eating, and chewing without any inconvenience, offering you a confident smile. Dentures are a cost-effective solution for those who have sufficient natural teeth. They protect the remaining teeth from any damages or cracks. If properly cared and maintained like your natural teeth, dentures can last a lifetime.
Types of Modern Dentures
Here are the various types of modern dentures that may vary in price, quality, and shade, depending on the results you want to achieve.
Removable Full Dentures
These dentures can be custom-made to fit your mouth and taken out for any reason such as cleaning or sleeping. However, in the future, you will experience bone loss in the jaw area if your teeth are extracted to place the removable dentures. When this happens, dentures will not naturally fit your mouth, but they can be refitted through your dentist.
You can choose partial dentures if you are looking to get a replacement for a few missing or decayed teeth and your remaining teeth are healthy and can provide enough support to dentures. These dentures are custom-fabricated to fill in the gaps of the remaining teeth seamlessly.
Implant Supported Dentures
Dental implants made of titanium, are surgically implanted into your jawbone to hold the dentures in place. Implant supported dentures are considered a permanent solution for lost or decayed teeth. Also, these dentures will not develop bone loss over time, nor require realignments or drugstore adhesives.
