1stDentures.com Consumer Portal Launches, Making Dentures a Little Easier

November 05, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Health News
(San Francisco, California) November 6, 2007 - The Internet Dental Alliance announces the re-launch of its consumer information website 1stDentures.com. The website offers patients a variety of denture resources. Patients can find a properly trained dentist, learn more about dentures, ask questions of an expert dentist, and more.

The site's primary feature is its listing of dentists and prosthodontists. Users can quickly and easily find denture dentists in their area by entering their zip code. Whether they're general dentists or prosthodontists, the doctors featured are all trained in providing dentures.

Every month the site features one dentist with particular denture expertise. Visitors to the site can send their questions directly to the featured dentist, who will post answers to selected questions. In addition, the archived posts of past expert dentists provide a valuable information resource for consumers who want to learn more about dentures.

Featured on www.1stDentures.com are consumer information articles such as "Low-Cost Dentures vs. Custom Dentures" and "Usefulness of Denture Adhesives and How to Clean Your False Teeth." In addition, the site offers clinical articles such as "Learn About Prosthodontics" and "Periodontal Disease and Older Adults." Consumers will also find summaries of recent news stories.

One of the highlights of the site is the success story section where other denture patients share their positive experiences. Users are invited to submit their own stories. "I had one tooth missing on top and it made me feel very uncomfortable. I was self-conscious about my smile and would find myself putting my tongue over the open space when I laughed and even when I talked," wrote one patient. "I had a permanent bridge added, and now I can laugh and smile to my heart's content!"

This dental web site offers some insight into dentists' thoughts on dentures in its survey section, where visitors learn that most general dentists treat denture patients themselves rather than referring the patient out to a prosthodontist. The site offers additional information on affordable dentures, partial dentures, and denture repair. There's also a glossary of common phrases, as well as links to special interest dental websites.

"People who wear dentures are going to love this dental directory website!" exclaimed Jim Du Molin, owner of the Internet Dental Alliance. "If your false teeth are driving you crazy, there's no reason to suffer any longer. We designed this dental website to help you find what you need and quickly and easily find a qualified denture dentist near you. The internet really can make your dental care a little easier!"

The denture portal 1stDentures.com is one of the Internet Dental Alliance's many consumer information websites, and the second to be launched in an updated and more comprehensive format. Over the coming months, IDA will introduce improved consumer sites in areas such as cosmetic dentistry, orthodontics, and sedation dentistry. All make patients' lives easier by offering zip code searches for specialized dental practitioners.

The 1stDentures.com website is one of the many portal sites in the 1stDDS.com family. It is owned and maintained by the Internet Dental Alliance, Inc. IDA is the largest provider of dentist websites, email patient newsletters and dental directories in North America.
