Replace all your missing teeth at once with quality dentures from Viva Dental Group
20 percent of Americans over age 65 have lost all their teeth to tooth decay or gum disease.
Although many Americans are keeping their natural teeth longer than ever, tooth loss does continue to be a problem for many older individuals. Whether you are missing all of your teeth or just a significant number of adjacent teeth, dentures can help.
Why You Need Dentures
If you’ve lost all or most of your teeth, you need to replace them. Dentures are the most cost-effective means of restoring normal tooth functionality to individuals who are missing a significant number of teeth. Either a complete or partial denture may be used to improve your:
Appearance: Without a full set of teeth in the jaw, facial muscles are left unsupported and your face may take on an aged and sunken look. Getting dentures will restore a natural look and give you a more youthful appearance.
Speech: You may not realize it, but your teeth actually play an important role in making certain sounds. Without a full set of upper teeth, you may have trouble enunciating words and making yourself understood. Once you adjust to your dentures, you will be able to speak clearly and confidently.
Diet: Eating a balanced diet can be all but impossible if you’re restricted to soft foods due to tooth loss. Dentures can restore your ability to eat all the foods you love. You can even eat foods like apples or corn on the cob with the right denture cement.
Overall Quality of Life: Research has shown that feelings of self-consciousness about missing teeth can lead to senior citizens withdrawing from the world around them and becoming isolated and depressed. Getting dentures can restore your confidence and enable you to enjoy social activities again.
