Are All Dentures Created Equal?

When it comes to finding the right dentures for your needs, it can be difficult to know what to look for. After all, there are so many different types of dentures available, and all of them can be made to fit your mouth in different ways. While all dentures may look somewhat similar, quality dentures are not all created equal. Here are several different factors that go into making a denture unique:

Different materials 

First off, the material used to make the denture base can vary, which can affect the look, feel, and overall longevity of the denture. They are usually made from acrylic resin, metal, or a combination of both. Many dentures feature artificial teeth, and these can be made out of a variety of materials, such as porcelain, acrylic, or composite. 

Custom-made with precision

Custom dentures are created by taking a detailed impression of the patient’s mouth and then designing a denture that is tailored to fit your mouth exactly. The way the denture is designed and custom-fitted to your mouth can make a huge difference in comfort and function. Your denturist will take measurements of your mouth and use the latest technology to ensure the denture fits perfectly and provides the best support and comfort.

Different types of dentures

Dentures are designed differently to address different types of tooth loss and dental issues. 

For instance, complete dentures are used to replace a full arch of missing teeth. These are the most common type of dentures and are made from acrylic resin. They are generally easier to adjust and can be made in a variety of shapes and sizes to fit your mouth.

Another type of denture is the partial denture, which is used when some of your natural teeth still remain. Partial dentures are generally made of a metal or plastic base, and they are designed to fit around the remaining teeth. Partial dentures are typically more comfortable than conventional dentures and provide a better fit.

Implant-supported dentures are dentures that are stabilized with dental implants. This type of denture is more secure and stable than traditional dentures and can provide a more natural feel and look. The implants are placed directly into the jawbone, allowing for a secure connection between the dentures and the jawbone. This helps to reduce or eliminate the need for denture adhesives.

Remember that no two dentures are exactly alike! Even if two dentures are made from the same material and have the same teeth, the way they fit and look in your mouth can be very different. That’s why it’s important to discuss your options with your denturist to ensure you get the best denture for your individual needs. Getting quality dentures requires time and effort to ensure the dentures are customized to your unique specifications and fit properly.
