There is a certain stigma around dentures and partials that makes people think that they are more worrisome than they are beneficial. Yet, as dental technology progresses, so does the comfort and efficiency of dentures. No longer do you have to worry about slipping, clacking, and painful dentures. Dr. Kevin Burgdorf offers his patients in the Hazelwood, MO area the best and most current denture and partials technology.
Benefits of Todays Dentures
- More comfortable – With today’s technology, we can give your dentures a more comfortable fit. All dentures and partials are custom-fitted to each person since no one’s mouth is exactly the same size and shape. This will help the dentures fit more naturally and firmly so they won’t cause you pain or discomfort. If your dentures do cause pain or are moving around when you chew or talk, they need to be refitted.
- More secure – Dentures are known to move around, fall out, and clatter when the person wearing them talks, but this is no longer the case. A customized fit not only makes them more comfortable, but customization helps them to be more secure without the need of bonding gels. Bonding gels, though helpful for the short amount of time before you can get an adjustment, can actually be harmful to the health of your gums. You shouldn’t experience any movement if they fit properly.
- Eat what you want – Yes, you can eat corn on the cob and bite into an apple. Old dentures may not have been able to stay secure when biting into certain foods, but with our dentures you can be more confident when you are eating.
- Look more natural – Dentures and partials now look and feel more like natural teeth. Not only are the fitted to your gum line, but the size, shape, and color of the teeth are also customized to fit your mouth so your smile doesn’t seem too large or too small. Oddly sized teeth can cause speech and function problems, so we try our best to replicate your natural teeth.
