What Makes the Best, High-Quality Denture?
Many people will find themselves needing dentures at some point in their lives. Often times this is a sensitive situation, and many people will feel embarrassed over their need for dentures. They want to get a pair of dentures right away and don’t give enough time or thought to the quality and appearance of the dentures. But those are the two biggest factors you should consider when choosing a denturist, as the resulting product is something you will be using and wearing day in and day out for years to come.
A high-quality, properly fitted denture can save you embarrassment, time, and money in the long run, and yet many people still cling to the notion that cheaper and faster is better. So why isn’t the cheap, fast denture the way to go?
It may seem like a great way to save some money and get a serviceable product right away, but there is a reason that cheap dentures are cheap. Many cheap dentures are ill-fitting right off the bat or lose their fit after only a few weeks of use, and many don’t stand up against daily wear and tear, losing their color and appearance. Dentures made in these offices aren’t created specifically for the wearer, they come from a process that closely resembles an assembly line. Denturists will measure and fit your mouth, but they use pre-manufactured, stock denture bases, and teeth that may or may not fit perfectly.
That isn’t to say that cheap denture offices don’t care about you, they just understand that their clientele wants inexpensive dentures in a hurry. They just don’t have the time to properly fit and create a quality product under those conditions. And while you might end up with serviceable dentures from this process if your mouth doesn’t naturally fit the stock denture options, there isn’t much that can be done by these denturists to fix the issues and custom fit your mouth. So you may end up saving money and time upfront, but if you’re too embarrassed to wear these ill-fitting dentures, is it really worth it?
The best bet for finding a pair of quality dentures is to have a pair created for you by an experienced denturist that can create a custom pair of dentures for your mouth. Custom dentures are fitted and manufactured specifically for you, and denturists will work hard to match the individual size, shade, and shape of your teeth so that the resulting dentures look natural and fit comfortably. Custom dentures also last longer because they fit with your mouth perfectly and aren’t rubbing or grinding, and the materials used in the custom manufacturing process are of a higher quality.
It may take a bit more time and a bit more cost, but having a pair of custom dentures created specifically for your mouth is a worthy investment. Your resulting dentures will look better, feel more comfortable, and last longer than any cheap pair you might find, and the confidence you’ll gain from having an amazing smile once again is priceless.
Flexible Patient Denture
Dentures are a traditional method used by dentists to replace one or multiple missing teeth. They are a removable plate that holds artificial teeth, which is then inserted into the mouth. The artificial teeth are positioned in a way that they fill the gap where the missing tooth or teeth were originally located. This can be a partial replacement or a complete one. As well as helping you replace your missing tooth, dentures can provide other benefits to your life too.
One of the main advantages of wearing dentures is the confidence it can give to you. When you are missing a tooth, you’ll find it difficult to eat properly, and it will understandably affect your self-esteem. This can stop you from smiling and eating out in public. A well-fitted partial or complete denture can help you feel better about your appearance and even enhance it. It can also give you the confidence to eat in front of others again. This can give you a new start and make you a friendlier and more self-assured person as a result.
Not only that, but your dentures can also help you live a healthier lifestyle. You may not have been eating the right foods due to the pain or discomfort caused by your tooth loss. This could mean your body isn’t getting the proper nutrients and vitamins it needs to function correctly. With the help of your new dentures, you can start eating better which will improve your overall health. It will also make it easier to clean and floss your teeth each day and remove unwanted plaque and bacteria.
While there are countless benefits to using dentures, like most things they can vary significantly in quality. While it can be tempting to save money where you can, this won’t always give you the best results. Low quality or ill-fitting dentures can cause discomfort and pain when chewing and talking. They often look fake and are more noticeable to others. They can also alter your face shape, by making it look sunken-in and less attractive.
In comparison, high-quality dentures are durable, comfortable to wear and look natural. Their custom fit will also stop them from falling out and keep you looking your absolute best.
Dentures can be made from some different materials, so it can be hard to choose the right one. Porcelain and acrylic resin tend to be the materials that many dentists favor.
Each have their pros and cons. Porcelain, for example, is durable and can last for a long time. But they can also get chipped, need careful handling, and thorough cleaning. Acrylic causes little damage to your other teeth and can resist unsightly staining. However, they don’t last as long and can wear down, altering the size of the artificial tooth. It’s vital that you consider the pros and cons of each before deciding which one will work best.
It might also be a great idea to add implant dentistry to your list of possible tooth replacement options. Not only do dental implants help preserve bone, but they are also extremely aesthetically pleasing and offer more function than dentures. If you’re considering tooth/teeth replacement, our team at Preserve Family Dentistry would love to help you explore your options.
