If you think that tooth loss must lead to ill-fitting, uncomfortable dentures, think again. You’re probably envisioning the kind of dentures that your parents or grandparents wore, but the appliances have improved significantly in the past few decades.
One major concern when it comes to dentures is that the devices will slip out of place at inopportune moments. This fear may make denture wearers reluctant to smile or even engage in conversation.
Custom-designed dentures reduce the possibility of such embarrassing slip-ups. An appliance that is created based on the unique specifications of a particular patients mouth will be more likely to stay in place.
At an initial appointment, your dentist will gather the information needed to craft your custom denture and then provide that information to the lab where they will be manufactured.
Patients have significant input throughout this process. You can make requests for a specific shade or make suggestions on the shape of the teeth to match your absent natural ones (or improve on them if you wish!).
Because the denture is designed to your specifications, it will fit much more securely, allowing you to smile with confidence once again. Furthermore, a custom denture is made of high-quality materials that are nearly lifelike in their appearance. Custom dentures also tend to be quite comfortable after an initial adjustment period.
Improved fit also typically correlates with improved function. Custom dentures are likely to chew more effectively than a budget appliance does.
Patients who have been reluctant to consider dentures would benefit from learning more about custom dentures. With their improved fit and aesthetics, you may even forget that you’re wearing artificial teeth.
