Updated, Modern Dentures
Patients who need dentures often have a lot of misgivings, and this is understandable. Depending on your age, you might have experience with “old fashioned” dentures – the kind that look like white blocks stuck into unnaturally pink plastic gums. There’s no mistaking this older style of dentures for anything but “fake” teeth!
But today’s modern dentures are completely different. We use impressions of your mouth and photos to create lifelike teeth that are the appropriate size, shape, and shade for you. Each tooth is designed and placed individually into the base to create the minute variations that occur naturally. This helps the eye to recognize the dentures as “natural” instead of thinking that there is something off about them.
The materials used to create dentures have been updated as well. Modern dentures are comfortable and more flexible. This improves the fit and helps reduce problems like sores and slipping. We can even provide additional security by working with an oral surgeon to place dental implants that you can use to “lock” your dentures into place.
You have plenty of options when it comes to your dentures, and Dr. Anderson will help you determine the best choice for you and your lifestyle.
Replacing missing teeth is important. Your teeth help maintain the shape of your face, allow you to speak clearly, and give you the force you need to eat wholesome, healthy foods. Without teeth, you will look older than your actual age, people may have trouble understanding you, and you may be forced to rely on a diet of soft, processed food, which can lead to malnutrition and all the problems that go along with that.
Comfortable, esthetic, well-fitting dentures can truly restore your quality of life.
Dentures are also an affordable, practical option for most people. While dental implants are great, they can be pricey, especially if you are replacing most of your teeth. This can make them an unrealistic option. Many insurance plans allow for at least partial coverage of dentures.
While dentures do require some extra care, soon you’ll find that this care is simple and quick. Cleaning your dentures every day with appropriate products will keep them looking good and smelling fresh.
