Modern Dentures Clintonville Ohio

What are Modern Dentures?

Modern dentures are… well, a modern take on replacing teeth that have become loose or lost. Although dentures have been around for centuries, they were not always comfortable. Historically, dentures developed a reputation for being ill-fitting, uncomfortable, and sometimes difficult to put in and take out. Modern dentures provide all of the advantages of traditional dentures, without the discomfort and functional difficulties that plagued denture wearers in the past.

What Is There to Know About Modern Dentures?

Thanks to evolving technology and advances in modern dentistry, dentures are now made of more lightweight and comfortable materials. These new materials also allow for a better fit and improved functionality when chewing and speaking. Full dentures can replace all of the teeth in a dental arch while partial dentures replace several teeth in a row. Typically held in place with brackets and wires, partial dentures are a great solution if you’re missing some, but not all of your teeth.

Here’s the run-down on modern dentures…

  • They are easily inserted and act as a removable replacement for missing teeth.
  • Depending on your condition, you may need either a full or partial denture appliance.
  • In some cases, patients may receive a set of temporary dentures immediately while the lab constructs their permanent dentures.
  • Once your mouth gets used to wearing them, we will follow up with regular appointments to make necessary adjustments so that your dentures fit comfortably.
  • We want to be sure you're happy with your new dentures, so we will provide all the necessary adjustments to ensure a perfect fit. This could take a few appointments over time.
  • In some cases, one or more teeth may need to be extracted before you can be fitted with new dentures.
