Dentures are removable dental appliances that are used to replace missing teeth and surrounding tissues. They are usually made of acrylic resin and can be customized to fit each patient’s unique needs.
We need dentures when one or more teeth are missing or damaged due to injury, decay, or gum disease. Dentures can improve the appearance of the mouth, make it easier to eat and speak, and help maintain the shape of the face.
Advantages of dentures:
- Improved appearance: Dentures can restore a natural-looking smile and improve facial appearance.
- Easier eating and speaking: Dentures can make it easier to eat and speak, especially for those with missing teeth.
- Increased self-confidence: Dentures can give patients a renewed sense of self-confidence and improve their quality of life.
- Affordable: Dentures are generally less expensive than other dental treatments like implants or bridges.
Overall, dentures can be a good option for those with missing teeth, but they do have some limitations and drawbacks. It’s important to discuss all available options with a dentist to determine the best course of treatment for individual needs.
