As we age, oral health can become harder to maintain and control. In fact, one of the leading causes of tooth loss in adults is gum disease. When you suffer a dramatic loss of teeth, it is ideal to find a way to restore your oral health and teeth as soon as possible. That is why, Dr. Jacob Avner with Great Smiles of NY in Rego Park, New York, is happy to talk to you about dentures.
Dentures are a removable appliance that sits on your gums to restore your smile. Teeth are important for talking to others and chewing your food. Dentures can restore these functions when you suffer a loss of teeth. Another added bonus with dentures is they can also fill out the appearance in your cheeks and can be made to look natural, so your smile is restored.
Because dentures are removable, you can take them off each night to clean. Keeping your dentures in tip-top-shape is essential to keep your smile and gums healthy and strong for a lifetime. In the beginning, dentures might feel awkward until you grow accustomed to them. However, over time, they will feel more natural and give you the functions you need for your smile.
