Dentures or most commonly called “false teeth” is a type of cosmetic dental procedure designed to replace missing teeth and surrounding tissues. Dentures, whether partial or complete (full set of upper and/or lower teeth), are generally created after you’ve healed from your tooth extraction. Though there are dentures that can be worn as soon as the extraction is done, you may be required to come back for adjustments while your gums heal. Conventional dentures allow for a better and firmer fit since the gum has already settled and formed over the extraction site.
As cosmetic dental procedures are costly in most western countries, patients who are looking for high quality but affordable dentures are considering traveling to other countries to take advantage of attractive rates and to experience world-class quality care. One of the best regions to explore is Southeast Asia where internationally trained dentists are found and where state-of-the-art dental equipment are widely used.
Using sites sponsored by global dental organizations, you can easily find a good and experienced dentist who will take dental impression before having denturist (a licensed professional who makes the dentures) create your dentures. If you choose to go to Singapore, you can take advantage of cutting-edge technology used to create digital impression that produces computer-generated replica of both the soft and hard tissues in the mouth using optical scanning devices.
The whole procedure, which can take a week or two in western countries, can be completed in as little as 3-4 days in most Asian countries. The lesser waiting time, the more you save on your associated costs like accommodation.
