If you are missing any teeth, it would be wise to select a tooth replacement as soon as possible. Missing teeth have been connected to an increase in tooth decay and can destabilize the gums in the area, knocking other teeth out of their positions.
When a person loses their teeth, their face sinks in and they begin to look much weaker than they are. Dentures can re-establish a person’s facial structure and return the youth to their face. Furthermore, gaps caused by missing teeth can become a haven for the collection of plaque, which can cause further tooth decay and gum disease. Dentures eradicate this safe zone to keep your mouth cleaner for longer.
Dentures are an artificial tooth treatment designed to replace a few teeth or entire rows. They are detachable and adjustable, so if discomfort is felt, they can be modified accordingly. For optimum oral hygiene, a person should soak their dentures in a denture cleaning liquid or plain water every night. Avoid letting your dentures sit out or they can dry out and crack.
Make sure to take good care of your dentures, so they can potentially last a lifetime.
