Choose a set of custom-made dentures that look good and feel great will help you improve your smile and confidence.
As technology has progressed over the years, dentures have become more natural-looking and comfortable to wear.
Modern dentures can help support the lips and face, improve speech and make it easier to chew, and are designed to match the unique features of your natural teeth. Instead of wearing prefabricated dentures, they are made from scratch, with careful attention paid to the shape and colour of each tooth.
Qualified dentists and dental care experts can offer either full dentures or partial dentures.
Full dentures involve replacing either the upper or lower teeth, or both, with any remaining teeth removed and gum tissue allowed to heal. Partial dentures, meanwhile, replace either one or a group of teeth, and are attached to remaining teeth with either metal clasps or precision attachments, the latter of which being less visible.
Acrylic dentures are a popular solution for dental patients in Canberra. They can be chemically bonded to the denture base, they are more affordable and less prone to breakage, and are among the easiest type of dentures to take in and out of the mouth. If cared for properly, acrylic dentures can last for 5 to 8 years before they need to be replaced.
Your dentures might feel bulky and a little awkward during the first few weeks and will take some time for your mouth to adapt. Some practice might also be needed when taking them in and out.
When eating with dentures for the first time, it’s best to start off with soft foods like soup, pureé or cooked vegetables. Also, be sure to take small bites on both sides of your mouth to apply even pressure to dentures.
If you want to gain more confidence and comfort, dentures are a simple solution that can make a big difference.
