See How Our Dentures Can Improve Your Life
There are times in dentistry when we cannot fix any of the teeth. We do our best to try and save them and such. But yet, sometimes they’re hopeless, or that they have other issues too, where the person has to have most of their teeth removed. Going around without any teeth makes a big difference. There is a height between our nose and our chin here. And then there’s a height of our upper part of our head here. And we’re going to lose some of the height here when we take out the teeth because the chin is going to get much closer to the nose. And that’s an issue, where we want to keep that support of that lower half of the face. And so by using the full dentures, we can continue to maintain that.
But not just that, it’s not just the appearance, it’s how you function. Having an arch that’s just with gums, it’s challenging. Do some people, can we live without our teeth? Yes, we can. We can chew but we’re going to be having foods that are much softer and such. But our digestive system begins in our mouth, if you will and a process for everything. And the best way to do that is to start off right. And if we don’t have the ability to have our own natural teeth, then dentures is a great option for our patients.
