Which dentures are the most comfortable?

Kia ora, fellow Kiwis! Welcome to our denture clinic blog, where we’re diving into the delightful world of dentures. If you’ve ever wondered, “which dentures are the most comfortable?” – you’re in the right place! We’re here to blend a bit of clinical know-how with our trademark Kiwi friendliness to help you find dentures that’ll have you smiling from ear to ear.

Let’s embark on a quest for comfort, exploring the pros and cons of different denture options:

Most comfortable dentures: Full Dentures

Full Dentures: The Classic Comfort Z

Pros:

  • Tried and true, full dentures provide complete teeth replacement.
  • Affordable and relatively easy to maintain.
  • Suitable for those missing all their teeth.

Cons:

  • Some users may find them slightly bulky.
  • First time users may struggle in the beginning as it involves quite a bit of adaptation.
  • Potential for minor discomfort due to adjustments needed.
  • Some people may have extracted teeth just before placing these dentures in.
  • In this case they are called immediate dentures. These require quite a lot of patience and adaptation as the first few days can be gruelling as the gums
    heal. But never fear, persistence goes a long way and you will soon learn how to function effectively.
  • May affect speech initially causing a bit of a lisp but keep practising and you will soon learn how to accommodate.
