Those with dentures have likely felt significant pain over the years as their teeth have slowly experienced problem after problem. Dentures are a relatively inexpensive way to restore one’s appearance, and they allow those with significant tooth problems to regain proper tooth function, which aids in chewing, appearance, and overall oral health. There are multiple oral problems that lead to the necessity of dentures, but the following are the most common reasons.
1. Injury - A significant injury to the face can result in multiple teeth falling out or becoming seriously damaged. Sometimes, teeth can be preserved and implanted, but this is sometimes not the case. Dentures can quickly and easily restore one’s smile after experiencing a significant blow to the face that results in teeth damage.
2. Decay - For some, years of decay have led to teeth rotting and falling out. This is sometimes due to poor oral hygiene, and at other times, can be hereditary or diet related, despite regular brushing and dental checkups.
3. Gum Disease - Gum disease, especially if left untreated can result in the loss of teeth, making dentures the best option for restoring a smile.
Dentures are a relatively quick and easy way to restore that perfect smile and rebuild the self-esteem that is often decreased after someone experiences the embarrassment of losing one or more teeth. It is important to note that everyone’s teeth are different, and for that reason, there are multiple types of dentures.
