Today’s dentures are not like the dentures of the past. In the past, many denture wearers complained of uncomfortable, loose-fitting dentures that had the appearance of false teeth. For these reasons, this tooth replacement system left a lot to be desired. However, with today’s advanced technology and manufacturing processes, today’s dentures look more like natural teeth, are better-fitted and are more comfortable to wear. That is good news for the large percentage of Americans with missing teeth.
The Dentca CAD/CAM denture system represents the greatest advancements in denture technology. The computer-aided-design and computer-aided-manufacturing system provides for a faster, more cost-effective method of manufacturing dentures that takes the margin of error out of the process. Dentures manufactured using the Dentca system require one visit before final denture delivery as opposed to the five visits required by dentures manufactured the conventional way (by hand). As a result, a patient’s chair time is reduced from three hours to only forty-five minutes. And, using computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing reduces the processing time from approximately thirty days to approximately ten days.
Unfortunately, tooth loss remains a problem for a large population of American adults despite advances in dental technology and dental hygiene. To avoid tooth loss, it is important to visit your dentist for regularly scheduled dental cleanings and checkups and to seek prompt treatment for any dental health issues, especially periodontal disease. It is also important to practice good daily oral hygiene at home.
If you are currently wearing dentures and are unhappy with their fit or appearance, or are in need of a new pair of dentures, visit a certified Dentca dentist in your local area. After a thorough evaluation, your dentist can determine whether or not the Dentca denture system is right for you.
