When people think of Dentures they may imagine clunky, artificial looking teeth in glasses of water beside a toothless mouth. But dentures are a long way from those outdated images and modern versions are natural-looking, lightweight and comfortable to wear all day. They’re a great way to replace missing or damaged teeth, making it easier to speak clearly and eat the foods you enjoy.
Dentures can even correct sagging cheeks and a hollow look in the face. They can also make a significant difference to your appearance, giving you back a smile that’s bright and confident.
The main reason to choose dentures is a desire to restore lost or decayed teeth, and improve the look of your mouth. But there are many other benefits that come with having a full set of healthy teeth.
1. They’re an essential tool for speaking and eating.
Tooth loss can seriously affect your ability to perform your daily tasks and eat. You may find it difficult to bite, tear, and chew food – especially if you have been used to a soft foods diet. And when you lose all your teeth, it can change the shape of your mouth, leading to a slurred speech and a poorer fit of your remaining natural teeth.
Having a complete set of natural-looking, fully functional teeth makes it much easier to eat a wide variety of foods and speak clearly without having to worry about food falling out or becoming stuck. In addition, a set of good quality dentures will help prevent the loss of your other teeth due to shifting of your jawbone and gum tissue.
2. They’re a great way to improve your self-confidence.
If you have been living with a lack of teeth for a while, then your self-confidence might take a hit as well. Having a bright and natural-looking smile with your new dentures can give you a big boost in your confidence, making you feel more attractive and happy. And the best part is that they’re not expensive and won’t cost you a fortune either!
3. They’re easy to maintain.
A pair of dentures will last for about ten years, though you might need to have them replaced sooner than this if your gums and jawbone shift over time. The key to making your dentures last longer is proper care. Make sure you brush them regularly, rinse them after eating, and soak them overnight to keep them in tip-top condition.
