Dentures are removable false teeth made of acrylic (plastic), nylon or metal. They fit snugly over the gums to replace missing teeth and eliminate potential problems caused by gaps.
Missing teeth cause problems with both your appearance and overall oral health. Without our teeth, we struggle to chew and digest our food, as well as speak. Furthermore, decaying and missing teeth increases the risk of gum disease. If you have missing teeth, then you want to consider getting dentures.
Benefits of Denture
- Natural and confident appearance: Dentures provide a natural and confident appearance. They provide a cohesive look and provide you with a radiant smile. Dentures can even affect the appearance of your entire face.
- Healthy teeth and strong bones: Dentures are an excellent option, even if you don’t have the healthiest jaw, teeth, or gums. Other restorative methods, such as dental bridges and implants, require healthy teeth and strong bones.
- Easily maintained: Dentures are easily maintained. Temporary dentures can be cleaned either inside or outside of the mouth and typically only require a rinse after meals. When you are not wearing your dentures, they can be easily stored in a glass of cool water. You should be sure to remove your dentures every night to allow your gums to rest and prevent soreness.
