Do You Need Dentures?

Ever suffered from recurring dental problems with no apparent solution? You might have noticed older dental patients opting to remove their teeth and having them replaced with dentures. While dentures come in quite useful when you want to replace your teeth in one go, here are some things you’ll want to keep in mind:

The perks of natural teeth

If you think dentures are a great way of getting your natural teeth replaced just for aesthetic purposes and with no underlying dental condition, keep in mind that it requires quite a bit of adjusting to as this is a larger, removable prosthesis. Apart from implants, nothing quite comes close to the perks your natural teeth give you.

Dentures can affect your speech

Since upper dentures cover the roof of your mouth, you’ll find that it takes a bit of practice to articulate speech patterns you’ve been using since you were a child. It’s not impossible to re-learn articulation but it does require some practice.

Dentures affect biting

When you have dentures fitted, this reduces the amount of force put into your biting by over 75%. This makes biting and chewing more of an effort so it’s recommended to start off with softer foods and meals that can be cut into smaller pieces.

When should you invest in dentures?

This is the ideal solution for someone in need of replacing all their teeth at once, and in a cost-effective manner. You can either get these placed in a traditional design or have them secured by dental implants for a more secure fit.
