Get ready for the most comfortable dentures you are ever going to wear, the soft denture. Soft dentures are on their way to becoming the gold standard in denture technology. Completely flexible, yet with a grip so firm you can bite an apple, soft dentures finally offer what denture wearers have always dreamed of; a denture that doesn't hurt or slip.

Soft dentures are completely made of a flexible resin, differing slightly from their close cousin, the flexible denture which consists of a flexible resin overlay on an acrylic denture base.

Let's take a look at why soft dentures fit so snugly. Our jaw ridges tend to be wider near where the teeth meet the gums and tend to curve slightly inward just above and below our natural teeth. This curve inward is referred to as the undercut. When being inserted, a soft denture has the ability to give a little as it passes over the widest point of the gum, but then flexes back inward to conform to the undercut. That's how such a soft denture can provide a great grip without any clips. And perhaps the best part, curving into the undercut keeps food from getting up under the denture. You can go out to dinner and not worry about having to remove your dentures and rinse them in a public restroom.

Soft dentures may wear out a little sooner than flexible resin over acrylic denture types, but they are still far more durable than standard acrylic denture bases. And while soft dentures are still capable of being relined, you may not need any adjustments at all. The small amount of give in the resin material allows a soft denture to rest against your gums more completely, eliminating those agonizing sore spots caused by pressure points on acrylic dentures.

It may interest you to know that the flexible resin used in soft dentures is hypo-allergenic. That's good news for those who are allergic to acrylic and thought they could never wear a denture.

In addition to comfort and fit, soft dentures also look really great. The base has a soft pink transparent tone that allows some of your natural gum color to show through, and no unsightly clips to give away the fact that you're wearing a denture.

So, if you'd almost given up hope of ever finding a truly comfortable denture that is so secure you could grind nuts with it, the soft denture may be just the ticket.

I've had dentures now for 20 years

I had all my teeth extracted and immediate dentures put in top and bottom. I can't really remember the cost.
Oral surgeons are generally very good, and the anesthesiologist will take good care of you. To me it was just like going to sleep. They also gave me Valium the night before to help me sleep and to be more relaxed the morning of surgery.
I received pain med's as there is discomfort involved. Follow the orders give to you by the surgeon and you should do fine. My husband helped me out and took care of me, so that helped as well.
It's normal at first to feel like you have "marbles" rolling around in your mouth

Perhaps you'd like to foot the bill

To get this person's dental work done correctly??
What does one do when you are down to no $$ and are in agony? My friend pulls his own teeth out with pliars, for instance. Gee, one should really get "that" taken care of professionally. I can't even walk in the door of a dentist cause it would mean probably $10M to get the work done. Gee, I have $6 to my name. Do you accept time payments?
Have a little mercy here. Maybe he or she can make it another day in a bit less agony. My mother just had her dentures looked at and the dentist says, "oh, you really should have dental surgery cause they don't fit so well any more

I'm midway through implants process

I had three implants inserted in January. Dentist and specialist jointly determined (by x-ray) that there was enough remaining bone to take the implants. (I hope they're right!) I've seen the dentist for checks on three occasions thus far and he tells me they look fine. They'll take more x-rays late May to see if there's been sufficient growth of bone over and around the implants (i.e., "ossification") and if so, will proceed to the creation of crowns and/or a fixed bridge; I'm still not sure what we're talking about there.
Right now I'm dealing with a partial denture (which I hate) to keep teeth from spreading out any more than they already have
