Would you be surprised to learn that a form of dentures already existed 2,000 years ago? As you might have guessed, these dentures weren’t as cosmetically attractive as modern dentures are. Fortunately, today’s dentures are made to be a beautiful option for anyone who is missing teeth—regardless of their age.
Did you know that dentures are designed to look like your existing teeth while restoring your ability to speak and chew comfortably? This means your dentures can improve the functionality and appearance of your smile. Dentures may also stop your cheeks from drooping, which could happen if you’re missing multiple teeth. Moreover, dentures may prevent wrinkles from forming.
However, please understand that dentures could require more daily attention than other restorations. While this isn’t usually a problem, please be aware that there are certain changes you should be aware of. Your mouth will typically change over a period of time, especially if you’re missing a tooth. Sadly, this can lead to ill-fitting dentures. In fact, if your dentures don’t fit well in your mouth, they could rub and you could develop sores on your gums. If your dentures don’t fit properly, you might also find it difficult to chew. If this happens, you could ingest larger food particles, which can lead to problems with indigestion. Painful headaches and difficulty speaking can also occur. Fortunately, our dental team can help you deal with these issues fairly easily.
