Because dentures are replacing an entire arch of teeth, they may not have had the best reputation in the past due to the difficulties patients have had chewing and talking with them. However, the good news is that today's modern dentures are more natural looking and better fitting than ever before. Even a recent study published in the Journal of Prosthetic Dentistry shows that most patients are more satisfied with their dentures these days.
What You Can Expect From Your Dentures
Today's dentures are more thoughtfully designed so they better match your facial structure and skin tone. This also results in a better fit, which means less movement and slippage when you talk and eat. Traditional dentures are easily removed for your comfort at night and so they can be cleaned each day.
Even Better Stability
Dental implants are often used to provide even more stability for denture wearers. A few implants can hold a denture in place with a more secure fit that doesn't allow for any movement or slippage during talking and eating.
Dental implants also provide the added benefit of keeping your bone healthy so it doesn't deteriorate at the rate it would with traditional dentures. Keeping your jawbone healthy and strong gives you better longevity for the life of your denture without needing yearly relines for improved fit.
