What Are Dentures?

Very simply, dentures are false teeth, a prosthetics designed to fit into the oral cavity. Some may be removed while others are more permanent fixtures in your mouth. Despite the many unique choices in dentures, such as partial, full, permanent, stabilizing or implants, they all fall into two categories: those which replace teeth on the mandibular arch and those which replace teeth on the maxillary arch.

How Do Dentures Help Your Appearance?

Investing in dentures will benefit you in various ways:

1. It will restore the natural look of your face by giving a structural foundation to the lips and cheeks so that they do not seem fallen or weak.

2. It will increase your ability to chew more easily as teeth are necessary to break down food.

3. It will improve your speech because missing teeth, particularly the anteriors, often create problems with pronouncing certain words.

4. It will rejuvenate your self confidence once you are able to look normal and smile again..
