Are you considering which tooth replacement option is best for you? In Kirkland, Washington, several options are available to you through Dr. Ann Kelley at Kingsgate Dental. One option that many of Dr. Kelley’s patients turn to is dentures. Dentures are removable and natural-looking dental appliances that effectively replace missing teeth. Dentures are great for patients needing to replace some or all of their teeth. Teeth can need replacing for many reasons, including loss due to decay, a physical accident, or disease.
Patients currently suffering from tooth loss may not consider dentures due to misconceptions that they are high maintenance and uncomfortable. In reality, modern dentures are much more comfortable than those available in past years. That is not to say that dentures will not take some getting used to, but the benefits easily outweigh this adjustment period.
The Benefits of Dentures
- Modern dentures are comfortably able to reproduce the function of your natural teeth. It is not uncommon for you to visit your dentist to make minor adjustments when seeking the best fit, but this is a small price to pay for tooth restoration.
- When you receive your dentures, you will have no further restrictions on what you can eat. With missing teeth, eating some foods can be difficult, but once your dentures are in place, you will be able to eat all the foods you love without issue!
- Missing teeth are more than a functional issue. You most likely have noticed a lack of self-confidence in your smile, resulting in your hiding it from others. This may mean you are smiling less. This social awkwardness can be a thing of the past once your dentures are in place.
- Your new dentures will provide support for your face. This support, once provided by your natural teeth, is vital to avoid the development of a sagging appearance of your face. Dentures will help preserve your appearance and prevent an aged look.
