Getting dentures can prevent structural changes from tooth loss
Dentures can be a huge boost to self-esteem
Higher quality dentures can lead to more satisfaction
Things happen in life and sometimes in those instances, teeth wind up getting lost. The circumstances can vary, ranging from an accident like a hockey puck to the face to disease to age-related tooth loss. It can occur to a broad spectrum of the population.
What can be done? Dentures and dental implants are an option. People may wind up choosing the former over the latter, sometimes due to cost and others for the amount of time needed. Here are some reasons that people get dentures.
They Can Help People of All Ages
When people think of denture wearers, many of them envision senior citizens. While a good portion of them are, there are also younger people who may wind up wearing dentures – either from tooth loss from gum disease or an accident or from conditions like diabetes. Some may have an abnormality like ectodermal dysplasia, which is genetic and can cause people to be born with missing teeth. Gastrointestinal reflux can also make teeth erode fat before their time. The younger crowd will also need something to fill in the empty spaces in their mouths. Dentures can be the perfect solution.
They Are Confidence-Building
This can help people of all ages with missing teeth. They will find that they are able to speak better with dentures and that they have regained a smile that they are proud to display to the people they interact with on a daily basis. Just having the knowledge that their mouth looks whole again can make a world of difference- and it can improve their lives in many areas, socially, professionally, and romantically.
Also, they will be happy to know that their facial structure won’t be affected with the dentures – they will be saved for having that sunken-in look with their cheeks that people with missing teeth have.
One thing that denture wearers need to consider is that the dentures need maintenance- just like their regular teeth. They need to be carefully brushed at least once a day and also soaked in a solution overnight.
They Can Be Cost-Effective
While dentures tend to cost less than dental implants, they are an investment nonetheless . Patients should get the dentures that are the longest-lasting and the most durable. Acrylic resin is one of the most common but porcelain dentures are longer-lasting. The higher-quality dentures will wind up saving both time at the dentist’s office and money from not having to pay for repairs. Since one’s mouth does change over time with dentures, refittings may still be needed. Overall, the investment will pay for itself several times through the course of its roughly decade-long lifespan.
