Dentures have come a long way since the days of George Washington's wooden teeth. Modern dentures are comfortable, lifelike, and can significantly improve your quality of life. In this blog post, we will explore the different kinds of dentures available, the process of getting dentures, and the benefits of modern dentures.
There are two main types of dentures: partial and complete. Partial dentures are used when you still have some natural teeth remaining, while complete dentures are used when all your natural teeth are missing.
There are also different materials used to make dentures, including acrylic, resin, and porcelain. Acrylic is the most common material used for dentures because it is durable, lightweight, and can be easily adjusted to fit your mouth comfortably.
Getting dentures typically involves multiple appointments with your dentist. The first appointment will involve taking impressions of your mouth and creating a mold of your teeth. This mold will be used to create a custom-fit denture that is designed to fit comfortably in your mouth.
Once your dentures are ready, you will have another appointment with your dentist to try them on and make sure they fit properly. Your dentist may make adjustments to the dentures to ensure that they are comfortable and provide a natural-looking smile.
Modern dentures are designed to be comfortable and lifelike, allowing you to eat and speak with confidence. They can also improve your appearance by restoring the natural shape and structure of your face, and they can prevent the remaining teeth from shifting out of place.
According to the American College of Prosthodontists, approximately 90% of people who wear dentures report an improvement in their overall quality of life.
