Why Dentures Need to Be So Precise

Posted on 4/20/2019 by Dr. Frank Sallustio
Why Dentures Need to Be So PreciseWhen we talk with a patient about getting dentures, one thing we stress is the need for precision in the fitting, crafting, and wearing of dentures. Sometimes, a patient asks why we are so concerned that everything be exactly right.

If you have ever wondered about the reasoning behind our drive for accuracy, here is some more information to clear things up for you.

Dentures Will Match Up Just Like Your Natural Teeth

Keep in mind the primary reason you use your dentures: to chew food. Because of this, the dentures will need to match up like a key and a lock. Just as your natural teeth are fashioned to fit together snugly, so too must your dentures match up when your mouth is closed.

If your dentures did not match up, a few things would result. First, you would not be able to chew food as well. There would be gaps and spaces between the dentures where bits of food would remain unchewed. This could result in a decrease in your enjoyment of food as well as a decrease in the nutritional benefits from eating.

Second, the dentures would start to wear down quickly in the few spots where they did come together. As such, having dentures that are precisely crafted will improve both your ability to chew as well as the longevity of your dentures.
