Dealing with tooth loss is not an easy situation. Tooth loss can cause emotional distress, physical discomfort, embarrassment, and even depression. Missing teeth can bring a considerable amount of challenges to a person’s life, and dealing with these challenges is not always easy. While it is unfortunate, many people are looked down upon for having missing teeth; therefore, those with tooth loss often avoid many social situations where their physical flaw would show. High school reunions, business parties, first dates – all of these seem off the radar for those who have missing teeth. At Georgia Denture & Implant Specialists, we are proud to offer patients the highest quality dentures to replace their missing teeth. While there are different teeth replacement options available, this post is about the advantages of dentures for replacing missing teeth.
Dentures have been around for hundreds of years as a tooth replacement option, and thankfully the advancements in dental technology has made them increasingly attractive, comfortable, and affordable. Dentures complete a person’s smile by either filling in empty spaces or completely replacing an entire set of teeth. A full set of teeth not only enhances people’s appearance, but it makes them confident about themselves. Dentures also allow people to eat without dietary restrictions. Missing teeth leave vulnerable openings in the gums, causing people to have to settle for soft foods. Dentures also address speaking problems that are present with missing teeth. Whistling sounds and lisps are common speaking problems from gaps in the teeth, and dentures can eliminate these. Dentures are also relatively affordable and last for a long time. While they will eventually need to be replaced, they can last for up to ten years with good care.
