5 Amazing Benefits of Dentures That Are Often Overlooked

Tooth loss can happen for a variety of reasons. Perhaps you've suffered tooth decay or periodontal disease. Or lost your teeth due to an injury or accident. Whatever the reason, tooth loss can affect your quality of life and self-confidence immensely. But with complete or partial dentures, you can reclaim both. 

Here are five other amazing benefits of dentures that tend to get overlooked or overshadowed by their ability to help you eat and talk normally again.

1. You can remove them: Complete and partial dentures are both able to be removed. In fact, you're encouraged to remove them every night before going to bed. That means if the thought of constantly having an appliance in your mouth is something you can't seem to get over, you actually have the freedom to wear your dentures as much or as little as you would like.

2. They provide support for your facial features: What springs to mind when you think of someone who doesn't have any teeth? Most likely their sagging cheeks and hollow looking face. With dentures, both are corrected. That's because they provide the support that is needed to keep your normal facial features intact.

3. They're natural-looking and lightweight: Dentures have come a long way. Modern versions are extremely natural-looking and lightweight, making them easier to wear than ever. Unless you tell people, they most likely won't know you're wearing dentures at all!

4. They're very affordable: Compared to bridges or dental implants and implant-supported dentures, regular complete or partial dentures are very cost-effective. Most denturists also offer flexible financing options to help those who are underinsured or on a fixed income easily pay for their prosthetics. Such affordable denture solutions can make a big difference in receiving the care and accompanying improved quality of life that is so important for people who need dentures.

5. They give you a megawatt smile: Your self-confidence can receive a major boost from having a beautiful bright white smile from your dentures. If you have lived with missing teeth for a while, then you most likely know all too well how self-conscious it makes you feel. Dentures can easily fix that and will have you beaming from ear to ear.

Q: How long does a pair of dentures last?

The typical lifespan of dentures is between eight to 10 years. If you have been wearing your dentures for more than a decade, be sure to book an appointment with your denturist so they can evaluate them to make sure they are functioning as they should.

Q: What can you not eat with dentures?

Eventually, you will be able to eat anything with your dentures. Initially, it's best to avoid sticky foods such as toffee or taffy as well as hard meats that require a lot of chewing such as steak or roast beef.

Q: Do you lose weight after getting dentures?

Some people may lose weight after getting dentures because they eat less initially. Once a person becomes accustomed to their dentures, they can easily return to eating a healthy diet made up of their favourite foods.
