In the past, dentures have often been considered a bit of a last resort and an undesirable option for those who had lost a significant number of teeth. They may have a received a bad reputation due to complications with slippage when patients would talk or eat. Well, there's good news if you are considering dentures in Royal Oak today!
Today's dentures are crafted with your facial structure and skin tone in mind, which means that they fit and look better than ever before. The teeth are designed and shaded to match your natural teeth, while the gum portion also matches your own. Patients are finding modern dentures more comfortable to wear with less of a learning curve for talking and eating than in the past.
Dental implants can be used to support modern dentures, providing a much more stable fit. Implants are placed strategically and the denture is designed to "snap" into them, which holds the denture securely in place. Implants also work to keep your bone healthy and stimulated, which protects against the deterioration that traditional dentures often caused.
Studies Show Satisfaction With Dentures
A recent study has shown that patients are experiencing much more satisfaction with their dentures these days. Both the men and women tested found that their dentures were meeting and sometimes exceeding their expectations.
