If your teeth have experienced severe decay, gum disease, or trauma, it might be time to look into teeth replacement options. Dentures are one of the most popular choices available today for tooth replacement for several reasons. Working with an experienced dentist will ensure that you get the treatment that is best for your unique needs, so visiting a dentist should be your first step! 

Getting Your Dentures

Chances are, you've already heard of dentures. Dentures are custom fit to your mouth, and they are removable teeth. With today's improvements in dental technology, dentures look and feel very comfortable for most patients. This treatment can either be used to replace all teeth, or to replace just some missing teeth. Here are some of the benefits of this procedure: 

  • Aesthetics: The biggest reason that most people choose to replace missing teeth is for the aesthetics of their smile. Dentures are custom fit to your mouth, and look like natural teeth. That means you'll be able to have a smile that you love again!
  • Easier to eat: If you have a good deal of missing teeth currently, you know it can be difficult to eat certain foods. With dentures, you won't have any gaps anymore, so eating becomes much easier again. It will be much more comfortable overall, and it will open up more options for what types of food you can eat on a regular basis. 
  • Support: When you have missing teeth, its common for facial muscles to sink in a bit. This is another aesthetic downfall that can occur if you do not replace your missing teeth. 
  • Affordable: Dentures are one of the most affordable choices when it comes to replacing missing teeth. Your dentist will be able to review all of your options for replacement with you, but dentures are typically the most comfortable choice budget-wise. 

All dentures take time to adjust to, but they are still a very popular and effective choice for many people.
