Dentures or ‘false teeth’ are designed to replace missing teeth.
Advanced dental materials create dentures that are more comfortable, more durable and fit better than your parents and grandparents ever imagined.
But perhaps the greatest advancement in modern denture science is the ability to recreate much more natural-looking smiles.
Each tooth can be positioned individually and “naturally” to give dentures a more realistic appearance.
The 21st century offers a much more natural choice of colors for artificial gums and teeth.
This equally applies to people who are missing a few teeth as well as those who have lost all of their teeth. They look and behave in the same way as your natural teeth and have proved to be a popular alternative to missing teeth.
So, what can cause tooth loss? Periodontal gum disease, tooth decay, an accident or injury can all result in missing teeth. You may feel that losing a couple of teeth isn’t a big problem but there can be long term consequences of this. What happen is that the remaining teeth shift out of their normal position and become misaligned. Those teeth situated next to any gaps will start to sag inwards which can cause problems with biting and chewing food. Another side effect is that your teeth provide shape and tone to your cheeks and any tooth loss will cause them to take on a sunken, drawn appearance which will make you look older!
