If you are thinking ‘do dentures ever feel normal’ then rest assured, they absolutely do. Modern technology has made it possible for dentures to feel like they belong in your mouth and in this blog, we are going to talk about denture comfort and cover some common answers to frequently asked questions.
This is a short blog designed to address common questions about dentures, from how do you get dentures to stay in place through to taking care of your dentures for lasting comfort. If you have any questions, please contact us to speak to our friendly team.
Do Dentures Ever Feel Normal? Are all dentures uncomfortable?
Absolutely not – and in fact, as technology advances, dentures become more and more comfortable. Dentures are a manufactured teeth replacement tool designed to give you the experience of natural teeth. Interestingly, humans have been using dentures as a replacement for teeth for centuries and technology continues to improve at a rapid pace. At Denture Health Care we use BPS dentures as our first choice for all denture patients thanks to their enduring strength, comfort, and performance.
Our dentures are fitted and designed using digital technology – known as digital dentures – which are made by taking a digital scan of the mouth and then using CAD technology to ensure a great fit. Digital dentures take away the potential for error and ensure that your dentures fit your mouth perfectly.
- After your dentures have been designed, your denture technician will adjust and refine the fit for optimum comfort.
- Whether you need a full denture or partial denture, you can be certain of a great fit when you use digital denture technology and work with trained experts like the team at Denture Health Care.
It’s a common myth that dentures are uncomfortable, and we think this might stem from the dentures of the past which were known to rub and cause problems. Today’s dentures are absolutely comfortable and easy to use and get used to, thanks to BPS dentures technology, digital design, and advances in fit technology.
How to ensure a great fit
A key problem people have with their dentures is getting them to stay in place when eating, talking, or just living life to the fullest! We have a range of denture options which ensure that you experience a great fit no matter what you’re doing. After all, one of the most difficult results to achieve in clinical dentistry is suction and stability on the lower denture – but our suction dentures have been specially designed by Dr. Abe to offer a great solution for people who want a secure lower denture at all times.
