People have funny preconceptions about dentures and in some cases, they have good reason too. Yet that is a little ignorant of how dentures have changed greatly over the past 20 years and have become a lot better to wear. The reason for this is two-fold; there has been a lot of work put into the development of dentures and the way they are manufactured. The biggest gripe for people in the past was that they were quite ‘false’ in appearance and were difficult to keep in, but that has all changed. Softer materials are used in their manufacture that not only look natural, but they keep the dentures close to the tissue of the mouth for better bonding; combined with dental implants and better adhesives, dentures have become more secure and reliable than ever before. The second matter is one of tooth loss: gum disease is a major cause of this, but thanks to the advancement in technology and new ways to treat the problem with improved surgical treatments, so now more and more teeth are being saved, rather than pulled. This has seen a rise in the people opting for partial dentures; they are dinky, easy to wear, secure because they wrap themselves existing teeth and far cheaper than having a bridge or an implant fitted.
