We all want a complete smile that we can show off with confidence. However, some of us will experience tooth loss. This can be due to a variety of reasons such as accidents where teeth get knocked out or oral health deterioration. Whether you have a single missing tooth, all your teeth are missing or somewhere in between, dentures can be a solution.
When a dentist mentions dentures many of us think of our grandparents and teeth that don’t look natural. However, we are here to say that dental technology and dentures have advanced so much that dentures have become a popular tooth replacement solution for all ages. Some of the main reasons why people may be reluctant to wear their dentures are:
Loose – Many have seen, experienced or hear about dentures falling out. If you have loose dentures then they can drop when you talk, laugh or even sneeze. Not only can this be embarrassing but they can also break if they fall completely out.
Appearance – Dentures have been known to look unnatural and unattractive. This is the case when dentures are used that do not fit properly and are low quality.
Soreness in Gums – When a denture doesn’t fit properly it isn’t just the appearance that is affected but also your gums. Your gums can become sore and uncomfortable if dentures do not fit correctly.
Speech – Dentures that are not fitted correctly and are loose can affect your speech. You may find it difficult to talk and to pronounce words.
Why Dentures are so Important
While dentures can have problems, it is very important to wear your dentures and to make sure they fit well. If you don’t wear your dentures you may suffer from the following issues:
Bone Loss – Bone loss can occur when you are missing teeth. This can result in face changes and problems with the jaw. Wearing dentures can help support your jaw bone and remaining teeth if you have any.
Appearance – When bone loss occurs it can change the way your face looks. You can experience sagging skin and sinking around the eyes and mouth. You can avoid this by wearing dentures.
Smile – If you don’t wear your full or partial denture it will affect your smile. When you do laugh or smile the missing gaps will be seen which will affect confidence. With a denture, you can have a complete smile.
Gums – When you have missing teeth with no replacement solution it will affect your gums. Other teeth can become loose and the gums can become sore.
