There is a certain stigma attached to dentures that is not particularly flattering, although it might be undeserved. People lose their teeth for many reasons. It may be the result of tooth decay and gum disease but it could also be as the result of a physical injury or head trauma or even as a complication form other diseases. Losing your teeth is not a very pleasant experience and can be the source of great pain and embarrassment. It can also make even simple actions like eating and talking difficult, as well as negatively affecting the profile and facial structure.
This is why Chelmsford dentists recommend that if you have lost your teeth you should try and replace them with a set of dentures. Modern dentures are far more advanced than dentures in the past and should be much better fitting. Not only will dentures restore the appearance of a healthy set of teeth but they will also act as a rigid support for the facial muscles. This will help to prevent the sunken, sagging appearance common to many people who have lost their teeth. This can make you look a lot older than you are, and more unhealthy. Of course dentures will also enable you to eat and talk with little difficulty.
Some patients who wear dentures are often concerned that they are loose and ill-fitting and may fall out at an embarrassing moment. This can be overcome with denture adhesive, although this can be messy and limit what you can eat. Good dentures should fit with suction alone so see your dentist if you are concerned about your loose dentures. You may be suitable for dental implants which act as a secure base for dentures alleviating the anxiety that loose dentures can sometimes cause.
