Why Getting Quality Dentures is the Way to Go

Posted on: April 16, 2018

If you are currently thinking about prosthetics that can help you restore your smile, you might want to consider getting quality dentures. You also have the option to go with cheaper, less-durable dentures, but when you consider the benefits and disadvantages of both options, quality dentures always come out on top.

Have you considered…?

Differences between quality dentures and cheaper alternatives

Cheap dentures

Dentures are dental devices that you wear all day, every day, so you want something that fits properly in your mouth. Cheap dentures tend to fit poorly in your mouth and that can lead to pain and discomfort when talking or eating. Cheaper dentures also tend to look less natural, making it easier for others to realize you have artificial teeth. Having artificial teeth is something most people do not like to advertise to the world. An ill-fitting set of dentures can also make your face appear sunken.

The main reason why some denture sets are cheaper than others is that professionals do not customize the cheaper dentures for a particular person. An assembly line makes the cheap dentures. All a dentist can do is measure your mouth and get you the closest thing he/she has to it.  That is why it is rare for cheap dentures to fit properly.

That is not all you have to worry about though. Low-quality dentures are not as durable as their quality counterparts so you will need to replace it sooner after purchase. Cheap dentures tend to lose their appearance and color faster, and these devices are also more susceptible to wear and tear.

Quality dentures

Quality dentures are custom-fitted for your mouth which makes them a lot more comfortable, durable, and natural looking. Customization allows for a tighter fit that keeps your prosthetic from falling out or slipping as you go about your daily activities. During this process, the denture set will match the individual’s natural teeth and gum line.

The dentist will take measurements and molds from you and use this information to create your prosthetic.  During your final appointment, the dentist will place and adjust your dentures to ensure a tight fit. The proper fit and quality materials your dentures are made of allow you to wear it for longer.

Life after getting dentures

After getting a set of dentures, it is up to you to prolong its life by properly taking care of it. The best way to do this is by following all the advice your dentist gives you and maintaining good oral hygiene. Over time, your dentures might still get damaged regardless of how well you take care of them.

The best thing you can do at that point is to resist the urge to fix it yourself and take it to your dental professional instead. Your dentist has the necessary expertise and tools needed to properly fix your dentures. Trying to make repairs by yourself can end up making things significantly worse.
