Dentures are removable dental appliances that are used to replace missing teeth. Full dentures are used when all the teeth are missing, and partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain.
Tooth replacement is necessary if one or several of the teeth in your upper or lower jaw is missing. This can happen as a result of decay, periodontal disease, injury, etc. When tooth loss progresses, it can lead to jawbone deterioration and a sunken facial appearance. This affects your appearance and has a negative impact on your confidence and quality of life. By restoring your teeth and supporting structures with dentures, you can recapture your smile and keep your mouth healthy.
If you suffer from missing teeth, there are several reasons to get dentures. Talk to your dentist today to see if dentures are right for you!
Eating a balanced diet and getting enough nutrients from your food can be hard with missing teeth. This is because it can be difficult to chew certain foods like meats and hard vegetables. But when you get dentures, you can chew these foods more easily. This will help you get the nutrition you need every day.
You’ll also experience better oral health when you receive full or partial dentures. That’s because your remaining teeth can shift out of alignment without the support of nearby teeth. Having crooked teeth can lead to further tooth loss in the future. With dentures, your teeth will be aligned properly, which will help to prevent this problem from occurring.
Losing several or all of your teeth can make you want to cover your mouth when you talk. This can decrease your confidence and have a negative impact on your life. But when you wear dentures, you’ll have more confidence when smiling, talking, and eating. This can increase your self-esteem and confidence on a daily basis.
Even if you have suffered from gum disease in the past or have a poor bone density in your gums, you can still receive dentures. Your dentist can provide you with options that will help to improve your oral health.
Many patients consider dentures as a long-term solution when they are unable to afford dental implants or other permanent restoration options.
