For people with missing teeth, there are several options available to replace the teeth and restore their smile. One of the easiest options is to wear a denture. When you hear the word denture many people have thoughts of their grandparents and teeth sitting in a glass of water but in reality, there are many different types of dentures available and they can look very natural if we make cosmetic dentures.
Good points about dentures are that they are easy and relatively cheap to make. They do not affect your other teeth and gums as long you keep everything clean and they can look very natural if they are made well. They can also be used in conjunction with dental implants which can help hold them securely in place; so if you already have dentures and are worried about them being slack and moving it is possible to have dental implants placed in your mouth for the dentures to connect to so that they no longer move.
The main disadvantage regarding dentures is that they are removable and so they can move slightly when you eat. Also, they need to be removed from your mouth to be cleaned regularly.
If you have any missing teeth then apart from dentures there are several other options available to replace your teeth such as dental implants and bridges. If you would like to discuss your options then please contact us on 0141 641 2107 and book a consultation visit.
