Missing all of your teeth on one or both arches can hurt your quality of life. Eating and speaking can become difficult and many people avoid social interaction out of embarrassment. Rather than hiding your smile, why not seek quality tooth replacement with dentures?
What Are Dentures?
Dentures are a type of dental prosthetic meant to replace an entire arch of teeth, either top or bottom. These prosthetics are typically made of high-grade resin or acrylic, including pink “gums” and white “teeth” for a natural, beautiful-looking smile. If you have loose dentures, they can be held in place with dental implants.
What Are the Benefits of Dentures?
Dentures offer great benefits to individuals missing an entire arch of teeth, or all of their teeth. The benefits of dentures include:
- Dentures offer a quick replacement option for an entire arch of teeth
- You will be able to smile proudly again, sharing your joy without embarrassment
- Your ability to chew and eat comfortably will greatly improve, which may result in better daily nutritional intake and enjoyable meals with loved ones
- Because dentures are removable, you may use them temporarily before moving onto a permanent prosthetic selection
Do You Make A Good Candidate for Dentures?
Because dentures replace an entire arch of teeth, you will make a wonderful candidate for dentures if you are missing all of your teeth on one, or both arches. If you have remaining natural teeth, you will need to discuss other options with your dentist.
