Single arch dentures offer unique challenges. They can be harder to fit. Double-arch dentures can be designed to fit each other, but single-arch dentures have to be designed to fit the opposing teeth, which is more challenging.
Single arch dentures also have to be stronger because they have to withstand the bite force of opposing natural teeth, which is typically more than the bite force of opposing dentures. This also creates a fit challenge, because the increased force can put more pressure on your gums, leading to an increased risk of denture pain.
These challenges mean that you should work with an experienced denture dentist for single arch dentures. Dr. Adam Hahn has been providing dental care in Columbia, SC for many years, and he has helped many people get comfortable, functional single arch dentures.
