For patients who, for a variety of possible reasons, are not good candidates for dental implant tooth replacement therapy, replacing lost teeth with dentures remains a viable and effective alternative. In fact, thanks to some truly remarkable advances in dental technology, modern denture therapy allows us to design and fabricate “false teeth” that are far more comfortable and realistic looking than ever before.
Along with advances in denture base materials and processing techniques, manufacturers continue to develop and introduce “tooth lines” with improved esthetics and mechanical properties. These teeth lines are manufactured with a layering process that uses a triple-cross-linked PMMA resin and micro-filled materials for improved wear resistance.
Modern Denture Therapy
Perhaps the greatest advancement however, has been in the development of digital technology; the high-tech digital scanning systems that enable your prosthodontist to measure and design your new dentures far more accurately than ever before.
This technology allows Dr. Maroney to design and fabricate dentures, crowns, bridges, and bars, as well as zirconium crowns for natural teeth. This is the type of advanced prosthodontic technology that was previously reserved exclusively for dental labs, causing long waits for patients eager to receive their “new teeth”. To better control and develop the final product, this is the latest in 21st Century dental technology, reducing errors and improving the fit and comfort of your new dentures.
We are the only Prosthodontist in the Littleton and Denver areas that does all of this denture design and denture fabrication work in-house, ensuring the best fit and greatest convenience available.
Tooth loss can be the result of many factors, including but not limited to congenital abnormalities, trauma, disease, and general neglect. Although aging is not a cause of tooth loss, the incidence increases with age. Currently, the elderly makes up the fastest growing segment of American society, with tooth loss among the elderly running rampant. Now, thanks to modern dental and prosthodontic technology, you will be much more confident and comfortable when you replace your teeth with dentures.
The doctors and staff at The Colorado Center for Implant and Prosthetic Dentistry are available to help you determine effective solutions to all of your dental problems. If you would like more information from your Littleton area Prosthodontist, please call to make an appointment today.
