Did you know that people have used false teeth for more than 2,000 years? Unfortunately, dentures today have a bad reputation because of how they used to look. In fact, dentures used to look like chunks of chalk. Fortunately, dentures today are made with appearance in mind. In fact, they’re shaped to fit comfortable in your mouth and to offer you a natural look.
Fortunately, dentures have come a long way. Now they are made from high quality materials, including fiberglass, acrylic, and metal—though they are often made of a combination of these ingredients. These dental appliances can be extremely useful since they let individuals with missing teeth speak clearly and chew properly. Furthermore, they can even prevent wrinkle lines.
Now, if you’re thinking that you can’t have dentures because you’re too young, think again. While there are many options available to patients who are missing teeth—such as implants or a bridge—you should consider dentures, regardless of your age. To ensure the best results, we recommend carefully considering all of your options before choosing the best restoration for you.
Aside from helping you speak and eat clearly, dentures can preserve our remaining teeth. Similarly, these useful appliances will stop your teeth from shifting and support the sides of your mouth, preventing wrinkles. Finally, of all dental restorations, dentures are the most cost effective.
