If you’re missing teeth and you don’t want to deal with an invasive surgical procedure to restore your smile, you should explore the possibility of getting dentures. Dentures are a great alternative if you don’t meet the requirements for implants. To find out if dentures are a good fit for you, you should schedule a consultation at a Verandah dental office.
If you’re unable to get implants for whatever reason, you should see an experienced dentist at a Verandah dental office like Riverdale Dental Associates to discuss the possibility of getting dentures. Dentures are removable appliances that contain artificial teeth that you wear in your mouth as a replacement for your missing teeth. If you have lost the majority of your teeth due to tooth decay, gum disease or an injury, you’ll need to replace them for both cosmetic and for health reasons. When you lose teeth, it causes your facial muscles to sag because there is no longer anything there to keep its structure in place. Dentures can correct this problem because they fill out the appearance of your face and therefore, will make you look better. Dentures will also help you to regain your ability to do important daily activities such as eating, speaking ang smiling, that you lost the ability to do when you lost your teeth. Even though dentures can provide you with many great benefits, they’re not right for everyone. They have some disadvantages that you should be aware of before making the decision to invest in them. Unlike implants, dentures require special maintenance and care. You’ll need to learn about proper denture care and maintenance and you have to be willing to properly clean and maintain them on a daily basis. Dentures can feel awkward at first and they take some time to get used to wearing. It’s very common for dentures to slip and slide when you eat and speak. For this reason, they might not feel natural until you wear them for a while.
