Low Cost Dentures - Custom False Teeth - Are They For You?
Think of dentures or false teeth as if they were clothing. There are ready-to-wear low-codenturesres that come "off the rack." The pattern's the same, and the materials are run of the mill. Then there are custom dentures that are individually styled for you, with the right fit and the best materials. There are hundreds of clinical and design choices. Individuals have different requirements and need their own special look.
Depending on age, and even gender, there are differences in the shape, length and color of teeth. The front teeth are often lighter in color than the cuspids alongside. Color should range from coral near the edge to pinkish near the base. Some base materials absorb more moisture, which can affect the fit. Old photographs or your old dentures can be used to give you the most natural look.
The texture of your denture is important, too. Unlike ready-to-wear, low cost dentures that are smooth-as-glass, good false teeth have some texture on the surface, especially on upper teeth. This helps you chew and speak properly.
Good low-cost dentures should be one-of-a-kind. Remember, you'll be wearing them every day!
Visit Our Office Regularly!
Take good care of your smile. Remember to visit the dentist regularly for professional cleanings and oral exams.
Mouthwash Is Important, Too!
Brushing and flossing may not be enough. The ADA now recommends using an antimicrobial mouthwash to reduce plaque and prevent gingivitis.
Don't Forget to Floss!
Clean between teeth daily with floss or an interdental cleaner. Decay-causing bacteria can hide between teeth where toothbrush bristles can't reach. Flossing helps remove plaque and food particles from between teeth and under the gum line.
