If you have lost some or all of your natural teeth from tooth decay, gum disease, or injury, dentures may be the ideal solution. Dentures offer a variety of benefits.
- They improve your smile. Dentures allow you to have restored teeth and a natural looking grin again.
- They improve your chewing ability. Missing teeth can prevent you from chewing properly, or cause stress to other parts of your mouth.
- They improve your speech ability. If you are missing many of your teeth, your speech has probably been affected. This can cause embarrassing frustration or lead you to avoid speaking entirely. Dentures can restore your teeth to allow you to speak properly again.
- They give you your confidence back. You do not have to be embarrassed to smile, speak, or chew when you have dentures. Your renewed confidence in your smile can give you your life back.
How Do Dentures Work?
Dentures are a prosthetic device used to replace missing teeth. Complete dentures are used for people who have no remaining teeth left in their mouths. Partial dentures are for people who have lost several teeth in a row. Dentures are removable and held in place with a special adhesive. This allows for proper cleaning and care. However, some prefer to have dental implants that allow their dentures to have more stability in their mouth. These dental implants create a no-slip solution for dentures, which some people prefer.
