The Difference in Modern Dentures
Legend has it that George Washington wore wooden dentures. Like many legends, the truth is actually somewhat different. In fact, our first President’s false teeth were made of ivory and even human teeth held together with metal fasteners!
Fortunately, denture technology has improved considerably in the last 240 years.
If it’s time to have a conversation about dentures with Huntsville, AL dentist Dr. David King, give us a call. You don’t have to be embarrassed or worried; we have this conversation with patients all the time and there’s nothing to be ashamed of. Millions of Americans across the country wear dentures!
In fact, chances are good that you already know people who wear dentures, and because denture technology has improved so much, you don’t even know it!
One of the main differences when it comes to denture aesthetics is that today dentures are custom crafted to blend well with your facial features and skin tone. If you have delicate features but large, bulky teeth, it’s just not going to look right! Dr. King carefully assesses your bone structure and coloration and sends specific instructions along with digital images to the lab so they can construct beautiful, natural-looking dentures that look like the teeth you were born with.
While it’s important for your smile to look good, it’s also important that your dentures fit comfortably and securely. The base of your dentures is more flexible than it used to be, and suction helps to hold it in place. Because your dentures are designed to fit your mouth so well, you won’t have to rely on sticky, messy adhesives. If you want added security, talk to us about dental implants, which can actually be used to “lock” your dentures into place.
