Sets of false teeth have long been employed by humans suffering from multiple tooth loss. They have come to be known as dentures and have solved the problem of having teeth for a great many people. They still don’t enjoy a terrific reputation though but this is something that is changing thanks to the advances in denture technology that are making them a more attractive option for people without teeth.
Eating and drinking, let alone talking, become real challenges if you have lost your teeth. Dentures are the easy and quick solution to this and can often be made for you relatively quickly in the event of sudden tooth loss. Your dentist will make a set of dentures that is tailored for the shape of your gums so that it fits comfortably in your mouth.
In the past dentures tended to come in the same shape no matter who was wearing them because they were made en masse. That is why they had a greater tendency to slip out during eating speech. When they are made for your mouth they are more likely to stay in place.
The materials that are now being used in denture construction allows the wearer to have a much more comfortable experience and wearers are reporting much less of a problem with friction. Dentures can also be worn as a temporary measure. If you are considering taking the big step of having dental implants placed then you will need to wear something in the mean time so that you can still eat and talk with ease. Dentures are a convenient and affordable way of doing so and your dentist in the Chelmsford area will be happy to advise you about the procedures involved with dentures.
