Dentures – how time have changed


Brief history

Did you know that dentures have been in existence since around 700BC? Back then, they were made from human or animal teeth. Later in 1700s  things started to advance and people began to make dentures using ivory.

While those were stronger, the problem with ivory was that it discoloured quite easily. So a new method needed to be found. Porcelain variants were first tried in 1774, but were not strong enough until 1820, when a British goldsmith called Claudius Ash created a set of porcelain dentures mounted on 18-carat gold plates. These were far more advanced both functionally and aesthetically than their predecessors.

As time went on, different materials were tried and tested until we came to the acrylic resins used in the 20th century. While dentures are still widely used, the great news is that they’ve come a very long way since the earliest ones! In fact, at Dentaprime F3T Dental Clinic, we’re really pleased to offer a further developed technology for fixed denture using dental implants.

This means that the days of taking your dentures out before bedtime, or worrying about them slipping when you speak or eat are gone. Our solution means that you can smile, laugh and enjoy meals out with good friends knowing that your teeth won’t let you down.

      Hello Jane,
      Thank you for your question. Actually, one way to stop this shrinking is to get a bone augmentation and dental implant treatment. However, the possibility of such treatment can be confirmed after assessing the level of bone loss.
