The benefits of flexible dentures
People generally associate dentures with being fixed and rigid. There is often the mental image of old men in cartoons losing their comically oversized false teeth. Fortunately modern technology has meant that there are more advanced styles of dentures available in order to ensure that you can lead as normal a life as possible.
What are flexible dentures?
As the name suggests flexible dentures are ones that are not as rigid as other models. This is achieved by using more flexible materials rather than traditional acrylic.
Why should I choose flexible dentures?
Flexible dentures offer several benefits over more rigid dentures-
More translucent material makes them less easy detect and more natural looking
While they may be more flexible there is enough rigidness to ensure they will not move about in your mouth or feel loose
The lightness also makes them more comfortable in the mouth and can improve speech
Make chewing easier
Do not require adhesives
Are flexible dentures right for me?
One potential stumbling block with flexible dentures is budget. This is because the resin costs more to produce than with rigid dentures. However as with any form of treatment the benefit in the long term often outweighs spending more in the short term.
Initial consultations with your dentist are an effective way of gauging whether or not they are suitable for your personal needs. Other treatments such as implants or veneers may be more appropriate depending on your condition.
How can I be sure they have been correctly fitted?
A concern people have is that because people with flexible dentures feel less pain as they bite they may not spot irregularities as soon as people with rigid dentures. The solution to this is to get regular checkups with your dentist.
As with any procedure it is important to check the certification of the dentist to ensure they are properly trained to fit fixed dentures.
With any procedure it is vital to be fully aware of the process. Most dentists understand that getting dentures can be a big step and some people are still afraid of the stigma that comes with it. However if you properly look after them and use them as directed then it is unlikely that they will come loose in an awkward situation or prevent you from doing anything that you would do normally.

Cosmetic dentures may not always seem like the best option for most patients, as this denotes the permanent loss of all natural teeth at the upper jaw, lower jaw, or both. Many who are forced to think about this type of solution have been dealing with painful and humiliating tooth loss for years, and have concluded with the help of their dentist that full cosmetic dentures are the most cost effective, permanent, and painless solution available. With today’s advances in dental procedures and the building of false teeth, however, cosmetic dentures are no longer the frightening blob that used to sit in a cup on your grandmothers bathroom vanity.
Most people who are contemplating the fitting of dentures will need to go through a heavy extracting process before the healing and fitting procedures can begin. Most dentists will schedule one extraction appointment, offering heavy to full sedation throughout the procedure, and the patient will undergo the surgical removal of all remaining teeth and/or pieces of the natural structures. All nerves, roots, and live parts of the natural teeth will be extracted completely, leaving a pain free and clean area that will eventually support a new set of cosmetic dentures. This can be a scary thought to many patients, but once the initial surgery woes have gone, most patients are relieved of pains and aches that have plagued them for years.
Most dentists offer options to the cosmetic denture patient as far as the crafting and developing of their new teeth. Within reason, of course, patients are able to choose the new teeth that they would like to wear for the next twenty plus years. There will be a line drawn by your dentist in respect to extreme skeletal structures or other such limitations, but for the most part, the new cosmetic dentures that you end up with will be as close to your dream teeth as you ever dreamed possible.
There are also new methods of creating the teeth which offer a multidimensional build to the finish product, causing slight translucency changes, layers, and shades of color which mimic natural teeth very closely. In this way, it is guaranteed that the only people who will know you wear dentures are the people that you tell. With the help and guidance of your dentist, you will find that the process of gaining cosmetic dentures can be exciting and rewarding once the initial disappointment wears off.
