Can dentures improve your smile? If you have any gaps or spacing issues between your teeth caused by missing or lost teeth, dentures can help. Partial dentures are used if only a few missing teeth need to be replaced, and they can improve your smile.
If a void left behind by a missing tooth is not filled in, it can become home to various forms of bacteria. These bacteria can hide in recesses and may be difficult to wash away. Not only that, but the gaps can also weaken your jawbone and cause your gums to loosen. Loose gums, in turn, can destabilize nearby teeth and rotate or move them out of position.
If you have missing teeth, your work life, your social life, and your self-esteem can all suffer. Missing teeth can cause depression and anxiety, especially among younger individuals. Dentures can fill in these gaps and restore your facial structure. With a full smile, you can receive a boost to your self-esteem and make your smile healthier and happier.
Depending on your age, oral health, and jawbone strength, our dentist at Art of the Smiles can help you find which replacement treatment will work best for you.
