Dentures: Are they Worth It?

December 30, 2014

Customized full and partial dentures have been around for many years. They are one of the most popular ways for someone with missing teeth to replace the missing parts of their smile. When you think about it, teeth make a huge difference in your quality of life. The way you appear to others and the interactions you have with people around you are challenging if you are hiding your smile. Flashing a toothless grin gives people the wrong impression, perhaps that you don’t take care of yourself. Beyond the embarrassing side of missing teeth, there are several important functional reasons for tooth replacement. Full and partial dentures are great solutions to restore the look and feel of your smile. There’s no need to beat yourself up for losing permanent teeth. No matter the circumstances that led you to this place, you feel happy to move forward with a beautiful smile thanks to .

Less Need for Replacements

Perhaps you remember an elderly relative who used to talk about their “false teeth.” Those were dentures. Dentures were once the only choice for tooth replacement. Losing permanent teeth was inevitable to a large portion of the population in their golden years as a result of poor preventive care throughout their lives. Dental care has improved, fortunately, and many people are managing to implement proper oral hygiene and preventive dental checkups so that they can keep their natural teeth for an entire lifetime.

More on Traditional Dentures

Not everyone enjoys the luxury of keeping all of their permanent teeth well into their elder years, however. That’s why dentists have multiple replacement options in modern times. Dentures are still one of the most popular ways to restore a smile because other options may be cost prohibitive. Made to look just like natural teeth, dentures have come a long way in both materials and design. You’ll know that your replacement teeth aren’t natural, but the quality of today’s dentures will ensure that there is nothing “false” looking about your beautiful grin.
