This is one question a lot of persons ask, especially those who are new to or considering dentures. One of the perks of having dentures is that people who need dentures don’t need surgery to fix them like in the case of a dental implant. So if you are afraid of pain and surgery, you can go for it. The procedure is minimally invasive, however, you have to wear your dentures for the whole day. Dentures are effective and easy. So, if you want a comfortable teeth replacement, the choice is yours to make. Finding the most comfortable dentures is dependent on several factors, like your dental health conditions and financial strength.
Let us show you some other tips that can help you get dentures that are hassle-free.
Single or double teeth replacement
An implant bridge is ideal for closing the gap and connecting adjacent teeth where you are missing one or two teeth. However, if you require a denture, then a snap-on denture or flexible denture is the best. Flexible dentures rest easy on your gums; aligning with its features. With this, gum bruises are evaded, and your dentures can last forever. But there are certain things to consider regarding the position of the denture:
- Molars – A great amount of chewing pressure is exerted on the molars at the lower end of the teeth. Here, a bridge is the best recommendation rather than a flexible denture
- Upper front and bottom teeth – These teeth don’t experience so much pressure like those at the back and as such, appearance is most considered than strength. So, colour-matching partial dentures will be very comfortable as replacement treatment, so your dentures don’t look different from your adjacent teeth.
- Single or double back molars – You don’t need to replace a missing wisdom tooth! Why? It doesn’t affect your teeth activities like chewing and smiling. But in a case where two or more back molars are bad, supporting the implant with a denture becomes important. Should you prefer comfort, a partial denture is also a great recommendation.
- Replacing multiple teeth – If you are missing a large set of teeth, you should consider a partial supported or implant-supported denture for replacement.
- Full or complete denture – Where you need to replace most of your missing teeth, it is recommended you go for a full or complete denture as it is less expensive and provides more comfort as compared to denture implants.
Depending on the situation, quite a number of materials can be used to design dentures. For narrow dentures, metal will be most preferred over plastic as it has strength. You can also have an acrylic denture since it’s easy to mould making future adjustments easier.
