Your smile needs a full set of teeth. Even if you are in excellent oral health, a single missing tooth can make your whole mouth appear flawed. Fortunately, dentures can restore your smile. Partial dentures can be used for one or more missing teeth, while complete dentures can restore an entire row of teeth with durable replacements. Remember, even though dentures are artificial replacements for your natural teeth, they still need to be cleaned and cared for properly.
Dentures are traditionally viewed as tooth replacements for elderly individuals who need every tooth replaced. However, this is not always the case. Many younger people have also benefitted from full or partial dentures. Dentures are removable, so you can easily clean them. Do not forget to place your dentures in a cleaning solution or plain water as they can dry out and warp if they are not kept moist.
Dentures are a wonderful treatment, capable of delivering a full smile. When you lose teeth, your facial structure will sink. As a result, you may look much older than you are. Furthermore, the gaps left behind can become breeding grounds for harmful bacteria.
