Dentures that won’t put a dent in your pocket
Dentures is one of the most common dental treatments in the world. Whether you are missing few or all of your teeth it is very important to replace these teeth for oral health reasons.
A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. Dentures can be made to closely resemble your natural teeth so that little change in appearance will be noticeable. Modern dentures may even improve the look of your smile and help fill out the appearance of your face and profile.
Two types of dentures are available: full and partial dentures. Full dentures are used when all the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain. Both types of dentures can be fitted to either your upper or lower jaw, or both.
Although the dentures may take a little while to get use to, the overall effect on our health and appearance will be much better for it. A partial denture will help to ensure that you keep your remaining healthy teeth for as long as possible. A full denture will re-create the natural shape of your jawline that slackens without the support of teeth.
New dentures may feel awkward or even uncomfortable for a few weeks until you become accustomed to them. The dentures may feel loose while the muscles of your cheek and tongue learn to keep them in place.
Will I be able to eat with dentures?
Eating will take a little practice. Start with soft foods cut into small pieces. Chew slowly using both sides of your mouth at the same time to prevent the denture from moving. As you become more used to your denture, add other foods until you return to your normal diet. Continue to chew food using both sides of the mouth at the same time. Be cautious with hot or hard foods and sharp-edged bones or shells.
Will dentures change how I speak?
Pronouncing certain words may require practice. Reading out loud and repeating difficult words will help. If you find that your dentures occasionally slip when you laugh, cough or smile, reposition the denture by gently biting down and swallowing.
