This is very much a loaded question as when it comes to dentures there is no one fit for all solution. Our dentures are carefully made by hand by a dental technician, to meet that individual patients needs. Impressions of the mouth are carefully taken so the denture will fit the patients mouth. These are then often refined through secondary impressions, and even more refined during the try in stage. So at the end of the whole treatment process, the patient will be left with teeth that are not only aesthetically pleasing, but they are also functional and comfortable.
Depending on your exact situation, you may be looking at partial or complete dentures. This covers a wide range of missing teeth situations and the most suitable denture for you, will be individually tailored to meet your needs.
The denture that is most suitable for you can then be made out of a number of materials. The reason why there are a few different materials available to make dentures, is because certain materials are better used in some situations. For example, if you require a narrow denture, metal is the preferred material as a plastic material will be too weak in these cases.
Acrylic is another popular material to be used in the making of dentures. This is because it is easily moldable so future adjustments can be made easier, than their metal counterparts.
If going ahead with a removable denture it is important to understand that in the future denture relines will be required to make them snug and comfortable again. As we age changes do occur in our mouths and it is natural for the bone ridges in our mouths to change, meaning the once comfortable denture will need to be adjusted to fit your new needs.
