When you think about dentures, do you think about your grandparents?
Well, the team here at Anchorage Dental Solutions would like you to know that dentures aren’t just for old folks. Modern-day dentures are an excellent and affordable solution to damaged or missing teeth.
Modern dentures are an excellent option
Modern dentures are a far cry from the dentures of the past. As little as a few decades ago, dentures were big, ill-fitting and required constant attention. Nowadays, though, dentures are simple, lightweight, and–if properly cared for–indistinguishable from natural teeth.
Dentures today follow the same pattern that has been tried and true for hundreds of years, with a good number of modern innovations. Dentures, at their most basic, are free-floating prosthetics that are used to replace missing teeth. Custom-fitted and tailor-made to fit each individual’s mouth, today’s dentures are designed to be as unobtrusive as possible.
How are they made?
At Anchorage Dental Solutions, our dentures are built from the ground up to suit your every-day life. As with most modern dental prosthetics, our dentures are made from a combination of high-grade surgical metal framework and a range of synthetic coverings.
No denture is a one-size-fits-all solution. That’s why Dr. Williams and Dr. Burke build each set of dentures to order for a patient’s specific requirements. We begin with a high-resolution cast of the necessary area, taking measurements for both dimensions and soft-tissue pressure. With this information, we are able to manufacture a set of dentures that can last you for years.
A common misconception about dentures is the need for adhesive. With our modeling and measurement methodology, we limit the need for any glue, relying on natural suction to keep our dentures in place. Modern dentures are designed to be as close to chewing with your own teeth as possible!
What to look for
Your dentures shouldn’t just fit your mouth– they should fit your lifestyle. Each patient has different requirements for their dentures, and Dr. Burke and Dr. Williams understand how important those requirements are. At Anchorage Dental Solutions, we know how to build each prosthetic to suit your needs perfectly.
