Den's Dental Blog

Hello! My name is Den. This blog is going to cover a range of dental topics. I am not a dentist or a dental nurse but I have recently undergone a lot of dental treatment. This treatment has given me a great insight into the world of dentistry and I would like to share everything I have learnt with you here. Last year, I developed terrible pain in my mouth. I was diagnosed with severe tooth decay. The dentist removed the problem teeth and then inserted false ones in their place. He also whitened my teeth to improve my smile. I hope you find my blog useful.

Why You Need to Have Dentures Fitted

by Myrtle Banks

Dentures are a common dental solution for people who are missing one or more of their natural teeth as a result of an accident, disease, the natural process of aging or any other reason. If you are a candidate for dentures, it is important that you know what benefits these false teeth offer before you can have the dentures fitted.

Here's a look at some of the benefits that dentures can provide to its wearers. 

Maintain a good facial profile

More than ever before, a lot of people are now more concerned about how they look. Of course, all of these people want to maintain or better yet improve their looks. Not having all of your natural front teeth, for example, can be a source of agitation because you will lack a full facial appearance.

Dentures are essentially teeth replacements designed to fill the gap left behind by a missing tooth or lost teeth so that the original facial profile of the wearer can be restored. With today's cutting-edge technology, other people will hardly notice that a denture wearer is missing some or all of his or her natural teeth because the artificial teeth replacements are natural-looking and can fit way better than they used to.

Aside from that, having dentures can also help prevent sagging of facial muscles, which makes a person to look older than they actually are. Wearing dentures can help ensure that this process is reversed by giving the facial skin the support it requires to maintain a youthful look.

Improve your eating ability

Your natural teeth are meant to help you bite and chew food easily. That's why you will find it hard to eat efficiently when they are missing. Wearing dentures can be a frustrating affair. Of course, you will be required to avoid chewing foods that are sticky, for example, as they can be difficult to remove when you are cleaning dentures. But you shouldn't feel discouraged. With a little patience and practice, dentures can greatly improve your ability to bite and chew most of the foods that you previously liked eating once you are accustomed to wearing the dental appliances.

Even though dentures can never be made as good as your natural teeth, these false teeth play an integral part when it comes to restoring tarnished facial appearances as well as improving eating ability. If you are missing any or all of your natural teeth, see a dentist to help fit the right dentures for you.
