What Are Dentures and How Can They Improve Your Life?
If you have lost several or all of your teeth, dentures can replace them. Dentures are, basically, artificial teeth that are custom-made by your dentist to fit your mouth, including the gums. There are several different types of dentures including full dentures, partial dentures, overdentures, and several more. (More on all of them below.) Dentures improve your life by giving you back your beautiful smile, allowing you to eat the foods you love and get the nutrition your body needs.
What Materials Are Used to Make Dentures?
Modern dentures today are made with a hard resin rather than the porcelain or plastic that was used in the past. They look quite natural but are a bit more fragile than natural teeth. They can chip more easily and, if dropped, break easily also. Unfortunately, they do tend to wear down faster than natural teeth also, causing most people to replace their dentures every 5 years.
What Are The Main Reasons To Wear Dentures?
Wearing dentures solves several problems both aesthetic and structural. For example, dentures give you the appearance of having a full, beautiful smile. More importantly, they make it possible to eat many of the foods that you enjoy and get the proper nutrition your body needs to stay healthy. More than that, dentures help support the structure of your mouth, cheeks, and lips. Lastly, some people suffer serious pain due to damaged teeth or roots. Dentures are a viable option to eliminate the pain and get a beautiful smile to boot.
