If you were lucky enough to spend weekends at your grandparents’ house as a kid, you might have memories of their false teeth swimming in a glass of water by their bedside table. One thing is certain, old-fashioned dentures had room for improvement.
Fortunately, modern dentistry has helped dentures progress in a number of ways along with restorative dentistry and preventive care. As a consistently changing science, dentistry offers us the best care in history today in our neighborhood dental offices.
3 Changes You Will Notice in Modern Dentures
If your grandparents regularly removed their dentures, it is probably because back then they were not very comfortable. Ill-fitting dentures create sores and hot spots because of uneven rubbing against gum tissue. The only way to relieve the pain was to remove them completely.
Today’s dentures are far more comfortable and fit better than ever. Modern development in their creation and a comprehensive understanding of jaw and bite function gives us an opportunity to create dentures that actually feel comfortable and minimize the sores that were so common just a few decades ago.
Today’s Dentures Are Sturdier
Made of a lightweight, durable acrylic, complete dentures are strong without being so weighty that they fall completely out of your mouth. Denture teeth, while breakable, are more durable and stain-resistant than those in the past.
Partial dentures come in acrylic and metal options for durability.
Dentures That Look Natural and Attractive
A big, boxy, gleaming white smile almost never looks natural, but denture teeth gave patients few options a few decades ago. Today, we offer age-appropriate denture teeth that come in a wide variety of colors so we can choose one that complements your skin tone and makes you feel good about the way you look.
