Dentures are replacements for teeth that can be removed from your mouth. Though dentures will never feel the same as your normal teeth, they’re an effective way of getting rid of gaps and restoring your smile if you’ve suffered from gum disease, tooth decay or injury.
The more teeth you lose, the more the muscles in your mouth will droop and the harder it will be to chew food. Dentures help prevent that by preserving your smile and improving your ability to chew.
Pittsburgh Sleep & Smile provides three different kinds of dentures:
Dentures will never feel the same as your natural teeth and will take some getting used to. The muscles of the cheek and tongue must learn to keep them in place, and you’ll need to get comfortable putting them in and taking them out.
Rest assured. Dentures are meant to look and feel similar to your natural teeth. That means that you shouldn’t notice an obvious difference between the way your smile used to look and the way it looks with dentures.
Dentures can last up to seven years, but because your mouth continually changes, they might loosen. If that’s the case, you’ll need to get them relined, or even rebased.
