Did you know that people have used false teeth for more than 2,000 years? Unfortunately, dentures today have a bad reputation because of how they used to look. In fact, dentures used to look like chunks of chalk. Fortunately, dentures today are made with appearance in mind. In fact, they’re shaped to fit comfortable in your mouth and to offer you a natural look.
Fortunately, dentures have come a long way. Now they are made from high quality materials, including fiberglass, acrylic, and metal—though they are often made of a combination of these ingredients. These dental appliances can be extremely useful since they let individuals with missing teeth speak clearly and chew properly. Furthermore, they can even prevent wrinkle lines.
Still, when you think of dentures, do you think of your grandparents? In reality, dentures can benefit anyone who is missing teeth. In fact, y our dentist could recommend a partial denture (if you’re only missing one tooth) or a complete denture to replace all the teeth in a jawline. In fact, rather than worrying about whether or not you’re too young for dentures, we recommend comparing their benefits to other potential restorations.
Aside from the benefits we’ve addressed, dentures can be useful because they are the most affordable option available. Also, did you know that if you have missing teeth for too long, your lips and cheeks could sag? This can make you look older than you actually are.
