The difference between a good and bad set of dentures can mean the difference between maintaining a well-balanced diet and eating only soft foods for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Good dentures are also crafted to specifically fit its user and no one else. To ensure quality, it’s important to know what to look for when choosing your dentures.
A Bad Set of Dentures
Before a patient can truly appreciate what it means to have a good set of dentures, it is essential they understand what can happen with patients using a bad set of dentures.
First, bad dentures do not fit correctly. Ill-fitting dentures cause a wide range of problems, including decreased strength and the risk of dentures falling out when speaking and eating. A poor-fitting denture can also cause sores to appear due to its constant movement, leading to increased bacteria in the mouth.
Secondly, bad dentures are crafted from poor materials. These make the dentures look as though they are made from plastic, causing a fake appearance. These materials are also generally not durable, often cracking and breaking.
Last, a bad set of dentures has not been proportionately crafted to fit the individual. A good technician will create custom-made dentures that are unique to only that patient, providing a more natural-looking appearance.
Quality Dentures Crafted From a Specialist
A good set of dentures can be life-changing. Not only will patients experience enhanced function, the esthetics of their smile also benefit from an improved set of dentures.
Good dentures are crafted by a highly-skilled technician and made from high-quality material made to imitate the natural color and shine of teeth and gums. They also fit securely, leaving little to no space between the denture and the gum for maximum efficiency. Patients that have moved from a set of poor-fitting dentures to proper-fitting ones often comment on their superior functionality, and the improved ability to chew and speak comfortably.
The features of a good set of dentures include:
- Crafted from quality materials
- Natural appearance
- Proper, secure fit
