Dentures can be a real lifesaver for people who have lost or are losing their teeth. Not only can they improve the way you look, they can also boost your overall health and enhance communication skills.
Whether you have lost your teeth through gum disease, an accident or just old age, dentures can ensure you continue to lead a good quality of life. A complete or full denture replaces the natural teeth and provides vital support for cheeks and lips. Without this support, sagging facial muscles can make a person appear older than they actually are and reduce their ability to eat certain foods and speak.
Dentures come in a variety of forms. For example, there are complete dentures, partial dentures, temporary dentures and dental grills. Complete dentures replace all of your upper or lower teeth while partial dentures replace just one or a few teeth. Temporary dentures enable you the chance to get used to living with dentures before the real product arrives, while dental grills are decorative covers – usually gold or silver – that clasp over one or more teeth.
Whatever type of denture you choose, Grosvenor Dental Practice will make sure it is the right one for you.
Getting used to wearing dentures does take time. Many denture wearers report a sensation of having a full mouth while others complain of their food now lacking taste. Producing excessive saliva and accidentally biting their tongues and cheeks are also common complaints. However, we can assure you that these issues do fade with time and that wearing dentures will be hugely beneficial for your health and well being.
