Do you feel self-conscious about your appearance after tooth loss? Improving your smile can be as simple as restoring missing teeth with dentures provided by your Reno, NV, dentist, Dr. Jintae Park of JP Dental Care.
What benefits do dentures offer?
The loss of your teeth may affect your self-esteem and have an impact on your social and professional life. If you're embarrassed by your smile, you might be less likely to accept social invitations or apply for a job or promotion. Replacing your lost teeth with full, immediate, partial or implant-supported dentures can offer a much-needed boost to your self-confidence and social life.
Dentures also provide several other benefits, including:
- No Need for Dietary Restrictions: Eating becomes much more difficult if you've lost all or most of your teeth. Although you could eat soft or liquid foods only, restricting your diet to soup, yogurt, applesauce and pureed foods may quickly become monotonous.
- Better Nutrition: You may not receive the nutrients, vitamins and minerals you need for good health if you avoid certain foods due to tooth loss.
- Healthier Remaining Teeth: Although you may have found a way to bite and chew with your remaining teeth, you might be putting those teeth at risk if you don't get dentures. Relying on just a few teeth to chew can result in damage or excessive wear to the teeth. Fortunately, partial dentures will limit excess stress on your remaining teeth and help them stay strong and healthy.
- Clear Speech: Tooth loss may affect your ability to speak clearly. You may find yourself struggling to pronounce certain words or sounds and notice that your speech is slurred. Dentures, no matter what the type, will improve your speech and make communicating much easier.
