The Dental Wigs are dental appliances manufactured to replace all missing teeth and are sometimes referred to as false teeth. However, in fact My Dental Wig can be partial upper jaw, partial lower jaw, full upper jaw and full lower jaw. It’s always great to be more specific.
In general, dentures are made of acrylic or plastic base, with acrylic or composite false teeth. Composite false teeth are stronger than acrylic ones, therefore they are resistant to wear, and they offer better biting capability. Unfortunately, most false teeth used to make standard dentures are basic acrylic. This has led to the conception that it’s not possible to bite into an apple with a denture.
During the manufacturing process of your Dental Wig, we use composite false teeth, and we do our best not to trim the original sharpen incisal edges of all the teeth on the front of the denture that will allow you to be able to bite into an apple.

It might slip around a little bit, it’s normal: it’s a new item in your mouth. Allow few days to get used to in which case, and during that time, adhesive cream can be helpful. While your mouth is getting used to your new teeth, you may have a few sores. Our trained dental wig technologist will handle all adjustments needed.
