Should you consider full or partial dentures?

Full and partial dentures can help to restore a person’s smile. They work by filling in gaps between missing teeth, or replacing teeth altogether. Replacement teeth are secured in a base which matches the gum colour of the patient, meaning they blend in with the rest of the mouth. Alongside the cosmetic benefits of the treatment, there are also other reasons why patients are opting for dentures:

Dentures can make it easier to eat

Missing teeth can often make certain foods difficult to eat, meaning you miss out on them altogether or can only eat them in the privacy of your own home. Dentures fit so closely to the gum itself that they make chewing food much easier, meaning any off limit foods can be put back on the menu once again.

Dentures can improve confidence

Restoring a smile can lead to higher levels of confidence and self-esteem amongst patients. In fact many of the people we have treated tell us that they wish they had invested in dentures years ago due to the new found confidence they have. Rather than shying away at work meetings or family occasions, they now participate more actively in these kinds of events.

Dentures can help with clearer speech

Another benefit of dentures is that they can help wearers with their speech. With missing or damaged teeth it can be difficult to pronounce some sounds. Dentures allow users to speak more clearly, which again boosts confidence and makes social events more enjoyable.
