When you are missing teeth, tasks which used to seem so simple can suddenly become quite difficult. You may notice that you are having issues with speech and pronunciation. Chewing food is suddenly laborious and frustrating. If you are seeking a tooth replacement option, dentures can be one solution that works for you. Dentures come in many forms. Complete and partial dentures (both fixed in place and removable) are popular among patients of Dr. Sam Gupta at Mount Royal Dental in Burlington, Ontario. Let us look at how a denture can improve your quality of life.
While missing teeth create obvious cosmetic and functional issues, one thing you may not realize is that missing teeth could be affecting your health. The first and critical step to proper digestion is chewing your food. When you cannot chew food properly, your body cannot break it down to absorb the nutrients it should provide. Additionally, without dentures, you may not be able to eat a wide variety of foods which make up a healthy diet. When you choose dentures, you should not only be able to chew foods properly, but the type of foods you are able to eat should increase dramatically. You will be able to properly eat a wide-ranging and balanced diet once again.
your teeth is a huge component of proper pronunciation. Without teeth, you will notice immediate difficulties in making sounds that used to be so easy. Dentures solve this problem, and you should be able to regain full pronunciation abilities.
