Teeth are extremely durable and, in many cases, they last a lifetime. However, there are many ways you can lose teeth, and if you have missing teeth, this can have implications for your confidence and self-esteem; as well as the aesthetics of your smile and the functionality of your mouth. Dentures are an effective treatment for missing teeth. Not only do they enhance the aesthetics of your smile, but they also restore full functionality to the mouth, enabling you to eat, speak and drink without any worries.
There are many possible causes of tooth loss: most people lose teeth when they get older, as a result of the teeth becoming weaker and more prone to damage and decay and dentures are most commonly associated with older people. Other possible causes of tooth loss include accidents, sporting injuries, fighting and decay.
It is always a good idea to replace missing teeth, whether you have lost a single tooth or a full set of teeth. The teeth have important roles in the body: they allow us to chew and grind food and they are also instrumental for clear speech. If you have missing teeth you may find it difficult to eat, especially hard or chewy foods, and your speech can also be affected. Missing teeth can also increase the risk of dental diseases and there is a risk of damage to other teeth, as the gaps may cause neighbouring teeth to move.
Many people are put off dentures because they have an outdated view of what dentures are. If you are still thinking of ugly, bulky sets of false teeth that sit in a glass by the side of the bed, think again. Modern dentures are light, comfortable and very lifelike, and they are a very effective solution for people with missing teeth. Dentures can be used to replace a full set of teeth (complete denture) or a small number of missing teeth (partial denture) and they are designed to look and function like natural teeth.
