What are Standard Dentures?
Both dentures and partials are prosthetic appliances that help to replace missing dentition in the mouth. Full dentures are used to replace an entire arch of missing teeth. Partial dentures are useful when you still have a good deal of your natural teeth, but need an appliance that replaces multiple teeth that are missing. Dentures and partials can easily last for about five to seven years before they should be replaced.
What is the importance of Standard Dentures?
Most patients consider standard dentures in bringing back their healthy smiles and natural look. According to Bastrop denture & Implant Center, 80% of dentures’ patients opt for standard dentures because they are cheap and affordable. Standard dentures are fast in molding as they take a few weeks to be ready. You may consider this procedure if you suffer from anxiety as it does not involve any pain.
