Which dentures look the most natural?

Currently, implant-supported dentures are the most natural looking. Sometimes called “snap-ons,” these dentures are secured by a mechanism that clips onto the implants. This type of denture rests on the implants and provides stimulation to the jawbone, preventing bone loss and offering a more secure fit than traditional dentures that often rest on the gums.

Are dentures uncomfortable?

When dentures are made of high-quality materials and molded well, they should not be alarmingly uncomfortable. Some patients may take longer to adjust to the feeling of dentures, but they should not be painful or unbearably uncomfortable. If you’re experiencing extreme discomfort with your dentures, schedule an appointment with your dentist as soon as possible. Ill-fitting and uncomfortable dentures could cause dental issues like infection and accelerated bone loss.
