You probably never expected to lose your teeth, but unfortunately it can happen to anyone. It is more likely in the elderly but a major accident affecting someone younger can leave them without teeth too. It is perhaps stating the obvious to say that not having any teeth can be rather inconvenient but just imagine trying to chew your meal without any teeth to help you. It has a big impact on your speech as well, given that your tongue works with your teeth to produce certain sounds which make up syllables. All in all, you will need to replace your teeth with something if you have lost them.
There are a number of options for patients who need to replace their teeth. Many people are increasingly going for dental implants but the surgery is invasive. It is a permanent solution but the surgery is too much for some to contemplate. You might have a negative stereotype of dentures but advances in the way they are produced might just make you feel differently about them.
For one thing they are far comfortable than they used to be thanks to advances in the industry. The new materials which are used in making dentures allow for friction free wear and it also means that are rather more durable too. In the past dentures would wear out a lot quicker and the wearer would have to have them replaced with greater frequency.
Dentures actually represent the ideal solution if you have yet to make up your mind about what you are going to do in the longer term about your lost teeth. You can always opt for dental implants or something of the sort at a later date. Your Chelmsford dentist will be able to guide you every step of the way in terms of your decision making process.
