Troy Dentist Talks About Advances in Modern Dentures

Written by Dr. Bentley on Sep 13, 2016

It is not unusual for older dentures to cause discomfort lose their proper fit. If this is the case for you, irritation, discomfort and embarrassing slips when you speak and chew are probably frustrating and embarrassing.  If your old dentures are inhibiting your ability to eat and chew properly, they probably also make you feel self-conscious.

The discomfort of ill-fitting dentures may not be the only problem. Since your dentures no longer follow your natural jaw line, your face may wrinkle and sag, making you look older. Fortunately, the Troy Dentist can restore your smile with new, modern dentures.

Modern Dentures Enhance Your Smile

Today’s dentures are vastly different the clunky, uncomfortable “false teeth” made years ago. Advances in modern dentistry have changed the way dentures are created. Today’s dentures are fabricated using comfortable materials that are flexible and significantly minimize the kind of irritation that denture-wearers have experienced in the past.

The Troy Dentist designs beautiful, natural-looking dentures that are custom-made to fit your smile, the shape of face, and your natural jaw line. The result is a set of dentures that are comfortable and look great – dentures that actually enhance your appearance.

What are Dentures?

Dentures are a prosthetic that act as replacement teeth. There are various types of dentures that are available to give you back a whole and healthy smile:

Partial dentures are designed to act as a placeholder that fills the space left by missing teeth. They perform the important function of preventing surrounding teeth from drifting into the empty space. Of course, they are also an effective aesthetic solution that greatly improves your appearance.

Complete dentures are used when all of your teeth are missing.

Immediate dentures are used when all teeth have been removed. They act as an aesthetic solution that provides the patient with temporary replacement teeth while they wait for their mouth to heal after removal of the teeth.
