How Dentures Benefit Your Smile and Your Life

Dentist Showing Dental X-ray To The Patient

Missing teeth can hurt your confidence, making you feel self-conscious to show your smile.

But they can also decrease your smile’s functionality.

Lost teeth leave gaps in your bite, making it harder to eat properly. These gaps can also affect your ability to form words and communicate with others.

The more teeth you are missing, the more severe they can impact you.

Dentures offer a solution for your smile and your quality of life.

Here’s how they can help.

Effectively Communicate

Our teeth are critical tools for speech. We use them to form sounds and articulate our thoughts. Missing teeth can affect our speech, making it harder to communicate with our loved ones. Dentures offer a solution to restore your speech. They allow you to articulate clearly and speak without issue.

Preserve Your Youthful Appearance

A common physical side effect of missing teeth is reduced face fullness. They may cause the jawbone to deteriorate, and your cheeks to sink in. This, in turn, may make you appear much older than you are. Dentures help to fill out your face and maintain its shape. They can help you preserve your youthful look.

Prevent Shifting Teeth

Remaining teeth can shift into the gaps left by missing ones. Over time, this disrupts your smile and leads to further complications. Preserve your remaining teeth with partial dentures. The partial dentures fill the gaps in your smile and help keep any natural teeth where they belong.

Regain Eating Ability

Lost teeth disrupt your ability to bite, chew, and eat. The more teeth you are missing, the more foods you may have to cross off of your list. This affects your ability to enjoy food, but also to get the nutrients you need. Dentures allow you to eat like you used to. They function like natural teeth, so you can eat all of the foods you need and enjoy.

Improved Self-Confidence

All of the ways missing teeth affect your smile’s function can also affect your self-esteem. It can make you shy away from social situations or fear eating in public. With dentures, you can regain these functions as well as your confidence. They offer a natural-looking, effective solution to missing teeth that allows you to smile with confidence again.
