If you are missing teeth, you might be considering dentures as tooth replacements. You might also be envisioning the old-fashioned, fake-looking teeth your grandparents placed in a glass of water at their bedside every night.

But today’s modern dentures are a far cry from what many people imagine. In fact, according to an article in the Journal of Prosthetic Dentistry, dentures exceed patient expectations in most cases. Thanks to new materials and better manufacturing, dentures today fit better, look better, and are far more comfortable than they’ve ever been. At our Aurora, CO dental office, we have helped many people improve their lives with today’s modern dentures.

Types of Dentures

Depending on the extent of your tooth loss, you will need partial or full dentures. Partial is used if you are missing a few teeth, while full is intended to replace a full arch if you are missing all of your teeth.

You can also opt for implant-secured dentures. These dentures are just what they sound like: secured with dental implants that have been placed into the jawbone. Not only do these dentures provide more patient comfort because they do not move, but the dental implants will prevent your jawbone from shrinking over time. Implants serve the same purpose as tooth roots, stimulating the jawbone, so it is preserved.

The Advantages of Dentures

Unlike the dentures your grandparents had, today’s modern dentures look more natural than ever. They fit better too, so chewing and speaking is more natural. You can smile without embarrassment and eat the foods you love once again.

They will also help reduce wrinkles around the mouth area because they will fill in the space there. Because they are removable, they are easy to clean and take care of.
