Traditional removable dentures can be a nuisance for many people. Eating your favorite foods can be a problem, and they inevitably slip and shift at the most inopportune moments. They require a lot of maintenance, and they simply do not feel or function like natural teeth.
However, advances in modern dentistry have steadily improved the design and materials used for creating and securing dentures. Today, dentures created by the Dallas, TX Dentures Dentist are designed for comfort and function as well as an appealing and natural-looking smile.
What are Dentures?
A denture is a removable dental appliance that is meant to be used as a long-term replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissue. Dentures today are designed so that they can be made to look more like natural teeth.
We start by taking detailed impressions and measurements of your mouth that are used to create dentures that fit you perfectly. Today’s dentures are fabricated by our dentist using a smooth, pliable polymer material that is far more comfortable than those made just a few years ago.
Will I Still Be Able to Eat My Favorite Foods?
Even the best-fitting dentures can slip and slide, and some denture-wearers find it impossible to eat crunchy foods like apples. Fortunately, we now have mini dental implants (MDIs) that function exactly like regular implants and provide a stabilizing replacement root that is designed to hold the denture securely in place.
Dentures retained with mini dental implants can make all the difference for a denture wearer as they provide a feeling of confidence in knowing that your dentures won’t slip while eating or talking. One of the great advantages of MDIs is that they can be placed by your dentist in one sitting.
