How Dentures Can Fix Your Smile

There are numerous ways we can replace missing teeth. You should review all your options with Dr. Carl Medgaus at Medgaus Dental Group to see what would work best for your smile. Many patients will find they make excellent candidates for dentures, which has been a tried-and-true method of replacing teeth for decades. They still come with many advantages that will make your life substantially simpler.

Fill in Gaps

This restoration can either be “partial” or “full.” It depends on how many teeth you are missing. In either scenario, you have large gaps in between teeth that greatly increase your odds of developing other oral health problems. Gums are more likely to grow directly on the gum tissue, so having a restoration in place can lower your risk of gum disease.

Increase Your Diet

One major problem people encounter when they lose a lot of their teeth is the inability to maintain a complete diet. It is tougher to eat fruits and vegetables because those foods require strong molars to chew and break apart. Dentures are resilient enough to chew fibrous foods, so you can maintain a full diet while wearing your restorations.

Limit Speaking Issues

Your teeth play an important role in your speech patterns. When you lose even a few teeth, you may develop a lisp. Some people spit or slur certain words. With dentures, you can fill in all the gaps, allowing you to speak normally once again. With the ability to smile, talk and eat like normal, you will feel like a new person.
