What are Dentures?

Dentures are removable false teeth or prosthetics fitted to your gums or the surrounding soft and hard tissues in your mouth. There are two types of dentures, full or complete dentures and partial dentures. Complete dentures are usually best for patients who are missing most or all of their teeth.


3 Life-Altering Benefits Of Dentures

1. Eat Well And Live Longer

According to a report on The State of Dental Health in Alberta, “there is strong empirical support linking poor dental health to diabetes, coronary heart disease, chronic respiratory disease, and pneumonia.”

Missing, wiggly or painful teeth can undoubtedly lead you to avoid eating certain foods if not avoiding eating entirely. It follows that you’re likely missing out on some critical nutrition and caloric requirements if this is the case. Full or partial dentures can help you get back to eating so you have the energy, sustenance and resilience to live a longer, healthier life. Whether you’re an eat-to-live or a live-to-eat kind of person, food is a huge source of enjoyment for people. Complete dentures can enable you to enjoy those crunchy, delicious favourite foods as well, so you’re not limited to soft foods and drinks. 

2. Never Leave Anything Unsaid

If you are missing teeth, you may avoid talking to hide your teeth or speech impediments caused by missing teeth. Although it can take a while to get used to dentures, they can eventually improve your annunciation and build your speaking confidence. 

3. Revitalize Your Face!

The loss of teeth and chewing may lead to facial muscle loss and sagging in your cheeks and jaw, while new dentures can fill out your jaw and inspire you to work out those chatterbox muscles once again. Gaps, missing, rotten, or discoloured teeth can also be unsightly and lower your confidence. In addition to defining your facial features, a new white smile can shave years off your appearance, so you look younger and more confident!

Q: How do you know if your dentures fit right?

The easiest way to know if your dentures are fitting right is to see if there have been any changes since when you had them inserted by your denturist. A general rule of thumb for complete dentures is that the top one should suction smoothly to your gums while the bottom one should stay securely in your mouth as it floats above them.

Q: How long does it take for dentures to feel normal?

It varies from person to person, but typically it takes around one month for someone to get fully adjusted and comfortable with wearing their complete dentures.

Q: Can you eat properly with dentures?

It may take some time to get accustomed to eating with your dentures, but after a little while, eating your favourite foods should not be a problem. You may want to initially avoid a few types of food, such as toffee, nuts, and popcorn.
