Whether you have teeth that are broken or teeth that are missing, dentures might be an option that you want to consider. Before you make any decisions, consult with an experienced dentist who can give you an idea as to what the dentures will look like in the mouth and the process of getting dentures. An experienced dentist will make you feel comfortable from the consultation until you show your beautiful new smile.
Who Benefits From Dentures?
Anyone who has issues with the teeth that fillings or other dental procedures might not be able to correct would benefit from dentures. Some people elect to have their teeth pulled and dentures made because they want a better smile and don’t want to go through a lengthy process of crowns, root canals, and other procedures. Those who have been in car accidents or who have had diseases that impact the mouth would benefit from dentures, such as someone who has oral cancer and has lost all of their teeth.
What Is Involved In The Dental Procedure?
Before dentures can be made and put in the mouth, all of the teeth are removed. This will allow the gum tissue to heal so that the dentures fit correctly without causing pain for the patient. When the dentures have been made, the dentist will position them in the mouth to see if any adjustments need to be made. The dentist will also discuss oral care for the dentures and the gums.
Why Are Dentures Important For Oral Health?
Without dentures in the mouth, it can be difficult to chew or talk. When there aren’t teeth, then the mouth can begin to sink in, which can cause the rest of the face to become misshapen. There are nutrition issues that can be prevented by wearing dentures as people who don’t have teeth or have teeth that aren’t in the best health aren’t able to eat the foods that deliver proper nutrients to the body.
What Are The Types Of Dentures?
A plastic set of dentures is what many people get. They are made of hard plastic and look like real teeth. You can remove the dentures to keep them and the rest of the mouth clean. There are partial dentures for those who are only missing a few teeth in one area of the mouth. Another option is premier resin. The dentures are made with strong acrylic and have a similar appearance as plastic dentures.
