Are dentures right for you? Tooth loss can affect your whole mouth—and your whole life! If you’re experiencing tooth decay, periodontal disease, or missing teeth, then it’s likely time to start considering new dentures as an option.
There's more than one choice of tooth replacement treatment, like dental implants or partial dentures that replace some teeth. To find out which solution would work best for you, schedule a consultation with NoseHill Dental today!
Missing teeth can cause a lot of problems. From not being able to chew food properly to a reduced sense of self-esteem, missing teeth can have serious negative impacts on your life. In fact, studies show that people with missing teeth are three times more likely to experience depression than those who have their natural teeth.
But don't worry! Dentures are removable replacements for missing teeth that can help you look better and feel better about yourself by giving the appearance of a full set of natural teeth. With dentures in place, you'll be able to speak easily and comfortably, eat without issues, and smile with confidence knowing that your smile will look beautiful again.
Dentures can make your life better in a number of ways. First, dentures are custom-made to fit your mouth so they provide a snug, comfortable fit. Secondly, dentures can replace missing teeth and even missing jaw bone. This means that your denture won't slip around when you talk or chew food.
In addition, dentures have natural ridges where the gums would normally be and this helps bite down on food more easily to cut it into smaller pieces. Finally, dentures are made from tooth-colored materials so they look more like your natural teeth and less like an appliance in your mouth.
People with missing teeth are very self-conscious about their appearance. Are you feeling insecure when eating or speaking in public? This can lead to a lack of interest in socializing with friends and family members. When we show off our smile, we are showing the world that we are confident and proud of who we are. Choosing dentures is a great way to do just that! One of the best benefits is that they give you back the ability to speak and enjoy eating comfortably again.
Dentures also work wonders on your confidence by giving you back one of the most important features—your confidence. Dentures don't just cover up spaces where teeth are missing; they replace them. A natural looking set of dentures can help change everything about how you feel when you look at yourself in the mirror every day. It's easy to get started on getting this new level of confidence by scheduling an appointment with our team here at Nose Hill Dental today!
When you first put on new dentures, there's usually some minor irritation which will lessen as your mouth adjusts. The period of dentures discomfort can vary. You might need to wait two to four weeks for your new dentures to settle and fit comfortably. It's not unusual to experience some tenderness or discomfort at first. Here are 5 tips on how to prevent prolonged discomfort, and why you may experience it.
Tip 1 - If you have new dentures, chew food slowly to help the gums fully recover.
Tip 2 - Try rinsing with salt water to soothe your gums after wearing dentures for an extended period. To make it, just add a half-teaspoon of salt to half a cup of water and warm it until it is completely dissolved.
Tip 3 - You might want to consider using a denture adhesive to help keep food particles from getting under your dentures and causing irritation.
Tip 4 - Clean your dentures daily and you'll not only remove bacteria from your mouth but also have a fresh feeling.
Tip 5 - Set up regular trips to your dentist so they can evaluate your dentures, the rest of your mouth, and make any needed adjustments to make them as comfortable as possible.
People who wear dentures, who've previously worn them, will find it might take longer than others to get used to wearing their new ones.
The lifespan of new dentures can vary depending on the type and care you take. While a natural tooth is living, it continues to produce new hard tissues that eventually replace the softer parts. There are many factors that go into determining how long dentures last including the quality of your oral health, the food and liquids you consume, and your daily dental hygiene routine.
All of these things will affect how quickly dentures deteriorate over time. Simply put: Dentures are not meant to last a lifetime. They should be satisfactory for 5 – 8 years. It's a good idea to see your dentist or denturist every year to make sure that your mouth is still healthy and that the bite is still correct. If you are looking for a longer lasting option, check out our dental implants.
