Bringing Back a Working Smile
The loss of permanent teeth is a common dental condition that can bring drastic change to your appearance and affect the way your teeth function. Dentures are a common treatment that can help restore both the look and the function of your teeth. A denture is a removable dental appliance that is made up of prosthetic teeth attached to a supporting structure.
Depending on the extent of tooth loss, dentures are available in full and partial sets. Full sets are used when all teeth are missing, and the partial ones are used when there are some natural teeth present. The benefits of dentures include:
- A natural appearance — The loss of one or more teeth can have an emotional impact on the patient. Dentures replace the missing teeth, restoring the original definition of your cheeks and mouth by supporting the facial structure and bringing back a full smile.
- Restore functionality — Teeth are not only useful for biting and chewing; they also contribute to the correct pronunciation of words and can affect breathing patterns. All of these oral functions improve with dentures, giving you back the ability to eat and speak without worry.
- Comfort — Today’s dentures are designed to fit comfortably. What’s more, they are easy to take out and clean.
With proper care, your dentures can last for years. They need to be cleaned daily and stored in water or a denture cleaner at night.
Missing teeth can really affect your confidence. With dentures, you get all the functional and cosmetic benefits necessary to bring back your smile and a youthful appearance.
