Denture technology has improved over the last number of years, and current options are more stable, making it easier to chew and speak than older versions. That being said, dentures are not for everyone. Dentures are not always comfortable and some people don’t like that they come out. There is also the risk of losing or breaking them.
Types of Dentures
Bridges are often a great option because they are permanent, and you don’t have to worry about taking them out at night or losing them. To take care of your bridge, you’ll need to brush and floss daily to keep them free from plaque and tartar, just like the rest of your teeth.
While dental bridges have many benefits, they might not be an option if you don’t have enough healthy teeth to stabilize a bridge or if you are under budgetary constraints. A consultation with Dr. Prasa will help you make an informed choice about what option works best for you.
