Full dentures are for patients who are missing majority of their teeth. The full denture fits directly over your gums and jaw bone. Partial dentures are a popular choice with clients who still have some natural teeth and looking to eliminate gaps in their smile. Whether you decide to get full or partial denture, there are several benefits including:
- Improving your chewing ability: When there are gaps in your teeth it can affect how you chew. With partial or full dentures, it fills in these gaps and make chewing more pleasant.
- Preventing further tooth decay and tooth loss: The loss of your teeth can put stress on your remaining teeth. This can lead to a host of problems, including tooth decay and tooth loss. Partial dentures can help prevent this by keeping your teeth in place.
- Preventing shifting of your natural teeth: When one or more teeth is missing, extra space is created and the pressure of your bite changes. The increased stress might cause your remaining teeth to shift. Wearing full or partial dentures will ensure that your bite stays correct.
- Improves your appearance and confidence: Not only can dentures help restore your smile, but help you speak more clearly.
