Should You Get a Partial Denture to Help with Your Missing Teeth?
Posted on 3/20/2019 by Dr. Shiotsu
Losing teeth is never a good thing, especially when you stop to consider everything that could happen because of it. One of the main things being that you'll look older because your face will sag since you no longer have support for your cheeks or lips.
Why you Should Replace Your Missing Teeth
Once you lose your teeth your other teeth are likely to drift into the space where the missing teeth once occupied. These teeth could easily shift up or down affecting your bite and placing additional stress on your teeth and jaw. This will make it harder to clean the area and could result in tooth or gum issues.
Nobody should do without their teeth as they're needed for eating and speaking. Of course, aesthetics are also important for your self-confidence. Beyond that though you also have the health issues that surface when any single part of your body isn't functioning properly.
Why you Should Get a Partial Denture to Replace Your Missing Teeth
One of the best ways to replace your missing teeth is with a removable partial denture. There are many reasons why this is a great option for you. The main reason people opt for this though is that it's less expensive than other options. This is good to know in case you must add additional teeth in the future. It's also great to know that partial dentures are easier to adapt to than complete dentures.
Obviously, they'll still require some getting used to and you must take care of them properly (honestly, this is no different than how you'd care for your natural teeth) but nevertheless they're a great option for anyone who's missing some teeth.
