Modern dentures: New technology vs traditional dentures

modern dentures

Your teeth are some of the most important parts of your body, allowing you to eat food, speak, and smile with confidence. After your teeth have been damaged by age or decay, you may be wondering if getting dentures is the right choice for you.

While there are plenty of options out there, traditional dentures and new technology dentures offer very different benefits and drawbacks that you should consider before making your final decision.

What are dentures?

Dentures are a removable dental appliance used as a replacement for missing teeth or several missing teeth. Modern-day denture making is a multimillion-dollar industry, so it’s no surprise that there are dozens of different types to choose from.

Partial fixed and removable dentures can both be custom made and fit to your mouth, providing optimal comfort and support for daily life; however, that comes at an additional cost.

Fixed-partial dentures will require you to replace them every five years on average while removable partial fixed ones last on average around ten years before needing replacement.

If you have any questions about whether new denture technology might be better for you than traditional full/partial dentures in Calgary SE call Outdoor Dental today!

Fixed vs Removable Dentures in Calgary SE

A lot has changed in denture technology over recent years, which means modern consumers have lots of options when it comes to choosing a new set of teeth. Traditional removable dental plates can be uncomfortable and inconvenient for those who need more dental support. More than ever before, we’re seeing patients choose fixed implant-supported dentures that stay firmly implanted in their gums while they eat and drink.

But you may still be wondering—are modern dentures worth it? And what should you expect when your Calgary SE dentist places an order for a brand new set? Let’s take a look at both traditional and new denture technologies so you can make an informed decision about your own smile.

Traditional Metal Dentures Vs Modern Technology (3D Implant Supported Dentures, Teeth In A Day Denture Implants, Six Month Smile Denture Implants)

Technology has finally caught up with patients looking for easy to maintain, modern dentures. In just 6 months your smile can be transformed by having an implant supported replacement teeth. No longer will you have to deal with those terrible teeth plates (denture bases) that were uncomfortable and never really looked right; your problems are over!

Forget about metal springs and rubber bands trying to keep your teeth in place or uncomfortable dental gum that would irritate your gums; new technology doesn’t require all these components because they are already built into your new 3D porcelain/tooth/implants. It is a complete tooth/gum replacement solution that is custom made for you. There is no more worrying about going to get modern dentures cleaned at your SE Calgary dentist every six months or getting your denture relined every year and half. With modern dentures you don’t even need a retainer anymore either!

You may still need regular cleanings from time to time but there are fewer appointments needed since most of what needs to be done is through our office, meaning less time driving back and forth from one appointment to another.

Your lifestyle will change dramatically after switching from traditional metal dentures to your 3D Implant Supported Dentures – easy-to-maintain modern dentures with today’s latest technological advancements at its core.

What are the best dentures in Calgary NE?

How long will my modern dentures last? Denture durability is an important factor to consider when choosing your new teeth. A strong material and a proper fit ensures that you won’t have to pay for replacements in a few years time. Keep in mind that there are three main types of materials used in denture construction, namely acrylic, metal and plastic.

Each has its own benefits and drawbacks, so discuss your options with your dentist before moving forward with any type of permanent tooth replacement plan. Calgary SE dentist, Dr Jay Patel has affordable solutions for missing teeth.

If you want to improve your smile without breaking the bank, your high quality dentures can be custom made in one day with less hassle and more comfortable design.

When to consider new technology over more affordable dentures options?

When it comes to improving your smile, there are a lot of things to think about: tooth colour, alignment, and comfort are just a few. New denture technology is changing how people everywhere regain their smile – and they’re making it more affordable than ever.

But what if new means not so budget-friendly? Should you shell out more cash for quality you won’t be able to tell apart from years of wear? In short, yes. While newer products seem expensive at first glance, they typically offer better value in terms of longevity and function—which means less frequent replacements over time.

Consider that a brand-new pair of teeth could last decades with proper care (and by saving you thousands in dental bills along the way). With these perks in mind, cutting corners on denture technology may not be worth saving a couple hundred dollars upfront.
