Dentures are most commonly sought out by elderly people who have lost most or all of their teeth, but anyone can get them if they lose or need their teeth pulled. Whether you need to replace a full arch of teeth or just a section of missing ones, dentures can fill the gap.
When you’re missing a lot of teeth, especially your front teeth, it can be near impossible to speak and eat effectively, but with dentures this is no longer a problem. Dentures usually don’t have any metal, although partials likely will, to secure themselves to surrounding teeth.
The benefit of dentures is you don’t have to worry about cleaning them after you eat. There’s no need to brush them at night or in the morning, but before you go to sleep you will need to remove them and put them inor water. It’s important to never let your dentures dry out because then they’ll warp, crack, and no longer fit in your mouth.
Your denture may be secured into your mouth by dental implants to prevent bone loss. This also stops your dentures from slipping and sliding around in your mouth so you can have more peace of mind when you’re eating and speaking that they won’t move around.
