Dentures are an excellent choice to restore your lost teeth and improve the appearance and function of your smile. Dentures can be custom-built as fixed or removable and made to match the size, shape, and color of your original teeth, giving you a natural-looking smile. You can choose between full and partial dentures, depending on how many teeth you want to replace. If you’re a good candidate, your denturist may offer you same day dentures so there will be little impact on your day to day life.
Here are 5 ways on how dentures improve your health and appearance:
- Improved Confidence
Loss of teeth can create huge impact on your appearance, social life, and career. Also, missing teeth can cause your facial muscles to sag, which can make you look older than you are. Dentures will restore your teeth to ensure a healthy and attractive smile that will improve your confidence.
- Restored Teeth Function
If you suffer from teeth loss, routine activities like biting, speaking, and chewing are greatly hampered. Dentures are made to work like natural teeth, so you can bite, chew, and speak with no hesitations or discomfort.
- Less Expensive
Full dentures are available for people who are looking to replace all the missing teeth in the lower and upper jaw, and for people who suffer from a few missing teeth can choose partial dentures. Regardless of the type of dentures, they are a cost-effective alternative to dental implants, especially if you have more natural teeth.
- Remaining Teeth Are Protected
Dentures are excellent for protecting the rest of your teeth from any damage or cracks. By replacing the missing teeth with dentures, you can ensure the health of your remaining teeth.
- More Durable
Dentures can last up to 10 years if properly maintained and cared for like your original teeth. Make sure to clean your dentures daily by brushing them with a soft-bristled brush and soaking in a denture-friendly solution each night before going to bed.
