Patients always ask if denture is a good solution for them. As with any dental procedure, there are always pros and cons to wearing false teeth. Whether or not they will work for you, depends largely on your lifestyle and the goals that you have for your appearance, as well as the functionality of your smile.
Technological innovations have given rise to new permanent dentures that are lightweight and look like your own teeth or better. Majority of false teeth are made of artificial elements like acrylics that are smooth and look natural to enhance your smile.
Although dentures are designed to stay in, and many patients have no problem wearing upper false teeth, some people find it difficult to wear and eat with dentures. A good option available today, is placement of several implants and fitting the existing permanent dentures to snap into the implants with added hinges or parts.
This way the dentures become fixed, and they won’t move when you eat or talk. You just have to remove the false teeth nightly and maintain proper hygiene to keep your mouth and dentures clean.
