Smiling – we do it for photos, friendly faces, cute babies and good jokes. Without a nice set of chompers, though, we would feel far less confident. Whether you are a past or present smoker, had a chipped tooth, or are just in need of some dental attention, there are many options to help perfect your teeth. There are many different choices of ways to straighten, whiten, cap, and replace teeth. One of these options is dentures, but how and when are dentures the best option?
Dentures are a set of false teeth that are specifically molded and shaped to fit in your mouth. They are made to look as natural and close to your original teeth shape and size as possible. They are removable; for example, they can be taken out for cleaning or adjusting but stay in through any type of meal. Advances in dentistry has pushed dentures to look realistic and aesthetically pleasing. They can be made fairly quickly as well.
Benefits Over Other Procedures
There are situations in which dentures have the strong upper hand over other dental methods. If you prefer less downtime and non-surgical procedures, then this would be the best option. If the teeth and gums are ravaged by gum disease and decay, dentures would be the quickest and most effective option. When more than just a few teeth are needing repaired, pulled and/or replaced, dentures are the favored choice. A few other situations that might necessitate this route are as follows:
- illness affecting the teeth or gums that inhibits certain procedures
- soft or loose teeth with the likelihood of falling out soon
- bone damage preventing implants
- desire for custom designs that may be impossible to do otherwise
