Why Comfortable Dentures Matter
- Posted on: Jun 15 2019
Dentures used to get a bad rap, but with so many adjustments and changes in how they are made, they are no longer the joke they used to be. Nowadays, dentures can fit your mouth comfortably while giving you a more natural-looking smile that will make your friends ask you if you have dentures at all. One of the things that we pride ourselves on here at McDowell Dental Group is providing patients with comfortable to wear dentures. Let’s take a closer look at why comfort is our middle name.
They Will Chaffe
Have you ever gone on a long run, walk, or hike wearing shoes that didn’t quite fit your feet? If so, you probably ended up with a lot of chaffing and maybe even some blisters in the process. Similarly, when you have dentures that don’t quite fit your gums or mouth, they are going to rub in places and leave your mouth feeling like it just went to war and back. We will do as many fits as possible to make sure that we get the job done right.
You Won’t Want to Wear Them
The more you wear your dentures for, the healthier your jaw will be. Your dentures aren’t just there to make you look good (although that is a plus), they are also there to help you chew and to make sure that your jawbone stays strong and healthy. If you aren’t wearing your dentures very often, your jawbone may weaken which can make it soft and may lead to a host of other problems. As long as your dentures fit comfortably, there won’t be a reason for you not to wear them.
You Will Adjust After
Having a one set of teeth is going to be something that takes time to get used to; regardless of whether they are comfortable or not, but the more comfortable they are from the beginning, the easier it will be to get into the habit of wearing them every day.
