3 Ways Today's Dentures Have Improved Over the Years

December 21, 2017
Posted By: Michael Allen, DMD
Dentures | Tucson AZ Dentist

Many patients who learn they need dentures react with dread to the idea. While the fear is unwarranted, we understand why dentures have such a bad reputation.

State-of-the-Art Dentures

Until recently, the materials and techniques used for creating natural-looking dentures just didn’t exist. Dentists did the best they could with what they had, but they were often limited to producing one-size-fits-all dentures. The same holds true for comfort; dentures used to be made of an inflexible material that didn’t conform well to the jaw. The resulting loose fit caused irritation and pain.

The good news is that everything about dentures today has improved vastly with the availability of updated materials, technology, and fabrication processes. Here are just a few ways modern dentures have improved.

  • Natural-looking materials: Dentists today have access to a wide variety of updated materials that are designed to enhance the appearance of your smile. The base of your denture is made to match your gum color, and artificial teeth are designed to look similar to natural dental enamel.
  • Customized just for you: The days of one-size-fits-all dentures are long gone! With the availability of new materials, your dentist can work with skilled technicians to fully customize the shape, shade, size, and positioning of artificial teeth.
  • Vastly improved fit: Today’s dentures are made using more flexible materials that can conform closely to the contours of your jaw. We can also stabilize full and partial dentures with dental implants to prevent any movement, resulting in a more comfortable fit.
