If you are missing several teeth or have a severely decayed or broken smile, your Jackson dentist may recommend removable dentures to give you the smile you’ve always dreamed of. Dentures can provide a beautiful, youthful, bright smile that can make you look years younger. DenturesLet’s take a look at some of the benefits of dentures at any age.

Advantages of Dentures

Replace missing or broken teeth – If you’ve lost teeth whether due to decay or injury, dentures can improve your smile and your bite with perfect looking replacement teeth that are likely more aesthetically pleasing than your original natural teeth.

Help with chewing and biting – If you’ve been dealing with lost or broken teeth, you may know how difficult it may be to bite and chew food. Some people experiencing tooth loss may feel they are doomed to a life of soups and soft foods. But dentures provide a stable surface to chew those foods you love.

Easy to care for – Removable dentures are easy to clean and care for. Whether you are missing a few or all of your teeth, oral hygiene is still very necessary. Along with brushing your gums and tongue, dentures are easy to remove so they can be brushed and cleaned. They can also be cleaned and disinfected with an overnight dental soak. Your Jackson dentist will check your dentures at each visit to be sure they are in good shape.

A more youthful appearance – If you are missing your teeth, your cheeks may sink in which gives the appearance of premature aging. But dentures help to fill out your cheeks and jaw to give your skin a more smooth, youthful glow.

If you think you may be a candidate for dentures, talk to your Jackson dentist about your options. Some people may only need an upper or lower denture, and others may simply need a partial denture to fill gaps where some teeth are missing. Dr. Constance E Smith, your family and cosmetic dentist in Jackson, MI can help make you look years younger with a new set of removable dentures. Schedule an appointment for a consultation today.
