You know that missing teeth are unsightly, and it is very likely the reason you do not smile as much as you once did. Of course, you also know that not having your teeth means that you have trouble chewing. Missing teeth can cause the facial muscles to sag and it can alter your appearance. You want to have your teeth back, but you might not know how that can happen. Fortunately, restorative dentistry has come a long way in recent years. One of the options you might want to consider is dentures.

Why Choose Dentures?

When you first hear the word dentures, you might be taken aback. After all, they have gotten a bad reputation over the years. You need to keep in mind that the dentures from the era of your grandparents are far different from those offered today. Today’s dentures are high quality and they are designed so they will not slide or slip when you are wearing them. This means you do not have to worry about embarrassment, and you can still eat all your favorite foods.

The dentures tend to be a good and cost effective option as well. Some might want to consider dental implants, but that might not be feasible for everyone. Patients might not be good candidates or it might be too costly for them. Dentures are a nice option to help those who are missing their teeth without breaking the bank.

You do not need to be missing all your teeth to get dentures either – this is a misconception. You could be missing some of your teeth, and you might only need a partial. If you are missing all your teeth, you could get uppers, lowers, or both depending on your situation.
