Having strong, healthy teeth seems to be a given during our early years in life. As teenagers, the last thing on our mind is the fact that someday we might start losing our teeth, or that we might develop heart disease because of our poor oral hygiene and unhealthy eating habits. We, at Cedarbrae Dental, stand to show that by adopting an improved, regular oral hygiene routine, the immediate effects can translate into life-long health benefits.
But what can you do to regain your smile if you’ve lost some, or all, of your teeth? Dentures in Scarborough may be the answer. If you’re an ideal candidate, dentures can help you regain your smile, boost your confidence, and improve your overall quality of life.
If you have gaps in your smile, it can lead to problems such as:
– Digestive issues – The digestive process begins in the mouth, where food is mixed with saliva containing digestive enzymes through the process of digestion. If you’re missing teeth, you won’t be able to chew down food as efficiently which can cause problems like irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
– Speech impediment – When we talk we use our lips, tongue, cheeks, throat, face muscles, lungs, and teeth. When missing teeth, your pronunciation might be impacted, at which point only implants or dentures in Scarborough can help.
– The appearance of premature aging – The face muscles and skin will tend to fill the void left by missing teeth. Having empty spaces in the jawbone means that your cheek and lips will tend to fall inwards, affecting your overall facial expression and making you look older.
– Psychological side-effects – You may experience a lack of self-confidence because you can’t smile as often or eat properly, and you’ll feel like everyone else is judging you based on how you look and talk. In time, this will affect your behavior to the point of becoming more introverted and more anxious.
For many patients, these problems can be solved with a set of high-quality, long-lasting dentures, meant to allow you to regularly eat again, smile more often, and feel better about who you are and how you look.
One Solution For Many Problems
Well-maintained dentures can last for several years. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t visit your dentist regularly to identify any potential problems after treatment, including chipping, cracking, dentures becoming loose, or those that affect your gums and cause irritations.
Also, thorough hygiene will extend their lifespan considerably, allowing you to enjoy the joy of chewing, speaking, and smiling correctly for longer. In essence, dentures in Scarborough are, in many cases, the ideal option for a happier lifestyle – precisely what Cedarbrae Dental is promoting every day with warm and caring dentistry.Dentures Scarborough
