It is amazing that dentures have hung around for so long in Worcester Park, especially if you consider that the dental implant is seen as the replacement for dentures right now. Well this story is rather two-fold really. For a start, the approach to removing teeth by dentists has shifted immensely: no longer do teeth get pulled at the merest mention of gum disease, dentists today have the tools to at least save as many of your teeth as they can if your gums become infected, which is why there has been a big rise in the number of people wearing partial dentures. Full dentures, like partial dentures, have also gone through a radical make-over too. They are made from softer, better adhering materials that cling to the mouth better: they also look more like real teeth and gums, unlike the ones in the past that looked like they had come from a Christmas cracker. Stronger cements help bind them to the mouth better, but the greatest irony in all of this is the fact that full dentures can be even better fitting when used alongside mini dental implants. You have to remember as well that dentures are very easy to pop in and out and they come without the hassle that your normal teeth give you…dentures will be around for a long time yet!
