The key to comfortable dentures in West Palm Beach
Denture wearers often have a bit of a love-hate relationship with their appliances. A denture enables you to smile, speak, and eat – activities that are difficult to impossible without teeth. However, dentures do not always make these tasks easy. A loose, sloppy denture can cause endless discomfort, pain, and embarrassment as well as having limited functionality.
The good news is, those problems can be avoided with today’s advanced techniques and improved dental materials. At Pure Dental Care in West Palm Beach, we provide quality dentures, to give you the beautiful, healthy smile you deserve.
Making a good impression
Dentures are custom-made, beginning with dental impressions. This step may sound simple, but it is one of the most important parts of the process. If your dentist simply takes one impression and sends it off to the lab, you will likely get a poorly fitting appliance. The new denture could be too short or tall for your mouth to close at the optimal position. It might irritate your cheeks, or fail to support them enough to correct the sunken-faced appearance that is associated with the loss of teeth. It might fit well when your mouth is closed and relaxed, but become uncomfortable when you yawn, smile, eat, or speak.
These are just a few examples of factors that an impression alone won’t address – and they are just a few of the many things that we consider when we design a new denture. We do not rely on a single impression. We take a series of them, to ensure accuracy and consistency. The design is then optimized for proper bite alignment, muscle functionality, and aesthetic concerns.
With meticulous attention to detail and a comprehensive design process, your new denture should fit like a glove. However, we will refine your appliance further, making additional adjustments if necessary. Our dentures are not completed in a matter of days. The process will take a few weeks, because your health, comfort, and appearance are too important to cut corners. We also offer the option of biocompatible dental implants for patients who want enhanced stability.
Dentures should not look or feel like false teeth. We believe in creating beautiful, healthy, pain-free, fully functional smiles, regardless of whether natural teeth are present. Call us at (855) 883-0355 and schedule a consultation to learn more about your options.
