Over the last several years, technology has significantly changed the way dentures are made. At Postings Denture Clinics, we provide comprehensive denture services in Victoria, making sure to always stay on top of new technological advancements to serve our clients better. One such advancement that we are excited to tell you about is that our denturists can now create an exact replica of your existing dentures by digitally scanning and duplicating them.
Let's take a look at how this works and why you may want to consider digitally duplicated dentures in Victoria.
The Process of Digitally Duplicating Dentures
Having a duplicate set of dentures is a good idea so that you always have a back-up in case your main pair becomes damaged or goes missing. The conventional, analog process of duplicating dentures involves making an impression of the existing denture and using the impression to create a mold. Digitalizing the duplication process does away with the need to make impressions and molds. Instead, the existing denture is digitally scanned and a software uses the 3-dimensional data to design the duplicate denture.
Benefits of Getting Your Dentures Digitally Duplicated
There are many reasons why you may want to have your duplicate dentures in Victoria created digitally. Perhaps the most important benefit is that digital duplication is able to create a more exact replica than conventional denture duplication methods. Your new, replicated dentures will have a stronger and more comfortable fit than even your old dentures. You'll likely need fewer adjustments and fewer visits to the clinic. Enhanced denture fit and comfort means that you'll have an easier time with activities such as speaking and chewing. By providing better support for your facial structures, your new dentures will also give your face a fuller and more youthful appearance, which can translate into greater self-esteem. Another important benefit of digitalizing your dentures is the quick turnaround time. Your new dentures will be ready in just two to three appointments, rather than the four or five appointments it can take to duplicate dentures using impressions and molds. Fewer appointments and a quicker turnaround time translate to reduced costs for both the clinic and the client. Once the 3D scans of your existing dentures are done, you can get a new set of duplicate dentures again at any time. Additionally, the process of digitally duplicating dentures creates less waste material than conventional methods, making it more sustainable in the long run.
