For anyone who has lost teeth due to decay, gum disease, injury or any other reason, dentures are a helpful solution for replacing the tooth or teeth that are missing.
While many people will think about dentures for purely cosmetic reasons, there are many other reasons why dentures are helpful and necessary.
Allows you to eat normally
Prevents facial sagging which can cause a more aged appearance
Improvement of speech when compared to not having dentures
More cost-effective than dental implants
Dentures can also be viewed as a temporary measure before getting a dental implant. Many people want to wait between a denture procedure and getting the implant to allow their body to heal, but do not want to be without a tooth for that long. The temporary denture can help complete your smile while your mouth heals.
Certain patients are also not compatible with dental implants due to a variety of health reasons such as gum disease and diabetes. While an implant is not ideal for these patients, dentures are a smart alternative. The dentures can help in ways similar to implants, such as preventing the surrounding teeth from moving or spreading.
Through proper care of the dentures and practicing good oral hygiene, dentures can help you lead a healthier and happier life. Are you missing a tooth or teeth and want to discuss the options? Give Dental Care of Morristown a call to set up a consultation with our dentist.
