Missing teeth can make activities that you take for granted much more difficult. Eating, drinking and even talking can be interfered with if you do not have a complete set of teeth. What’s more, you might find that having an incomplete set of teeth or even no teeth at all can dash your confidence and leave you embarrassed about smiling and talking. You ought to get missing teeth replaced as soon as possible or your cheeks might sag ,making you look older than you are.
You can lose a tooth or teeth because of an accident, perhaps while playing a contact sport, or as a result of decay or gum disease. Dentures are removable replacements for your lost teeth and modern varieties are increasingly comfortable. Usually they will come as a complete set but partial dentures are available if you have lost a few teeth and need to ensure that your remaining teeth don’t shift into the gaps left behind.
Patients are increasingly opting for permanent replacements to missing teeth by using dental implants. Dentures might be preferable though if you want to be able to remove them.
The fact that they are removable means that dentures can slip while you are eating or talking and they must be adequately cleaned. They can be held in place either using a fixing agent or by the natural suction that your gums possess.
