Imagine every time you lose a tooth, a new one replaces it, over and over again, it might sound like wishful thinking; however, scientists are hoping to find biological triggers that will allow us to grow several sets of teeth, something that will make the tooth fairy very wealthy. Regardless of how far away this dream of multiple sets of teeth is, it does emphasize the importance of having teeth and how dentures are a continued solution for teeth loss. Read the blog below for more information on what the future holds for teeth loss.

Dentures have come a long way in the past few decades, and as ambitious as growing real teeth in a lab are, dentures are still the top solution for teeth loss. The reason why researchers are trying to find a way to grow real teeth or manipulate genes to allow us to grow multiple sets of teeth is, because how important having teeth is on day to day basis. You can research all you want on what’s considered healthy nutrition, but if you can’t break that food down in your mouth, it’s useless.

The physical benefits of dentures and real teeth are numerous, but equally important is the emotional wellbeing that a full set of teeth offers. The ability to smile and have full confidence in exposing your teeth does nothing but good for your self-esteem. Often, people with teeth loss become insecure and avoid places like restaurants, fearing that others will notice or worse, comment on any missing teeth.

As great as the ability to grow multiple teeth is, currently, the best solution for tooth loss is full dentures, partial dentures and dental implants. If you need full dentures, partial dentures or denture repairs, contact Denturist Vlad Dumbrava at the Future Smiles Clinic in SW Calgary today at 403-475-0016.
