Are your ill-fitting dentures making you unhappy?
Many people live with dental appliances that don’t support their facial structure properly. Outdated dentures contribute to visible signs of aging and an overall appearance of poor health.
If your dentures are affecting your confidence, it may be time for a replacement or upgrade.
Is It Time to Replace Your Dentures?
All dentures need replacing eventually, even if you take care of them properly and keep them clean.
Signs to watch out for:
- Clicking Sounds: If you hear this when you talk or eat, your dentures may be worn out.
- Slipping or Moving Dentures: When original teeth are missing, surrounding bone and gums tend to shrink over time. Traditional dentures will start to be loose after a few years because of this.
- Bad breath and/or Bleeding Gums: These are also symptoms of tooth decay and gum disease. You should go to your dentist right away, regardless of your intention to get a new dental appliance.
Should You Upgrade to Facial Rejuvenation Dentures?
When it’s time to replace your dentures, think about switching to facial rejuvenation dentures. If you’re unhappy about the way you look with your traditional dentures, consult Dr. Westersund and his team at his dental and dentures clinic in Downtown Calgary.
Facial rejuvenation dentures are a step up from the conventional kind, and these Calgary dentures aren’t just false teeth for biting and chewing. Dentalife’s neuromuscular approach to dental health considers your gums and teeth, plus muscles and joints around the area.
4 Ways Better Dentures Can Improve Your Quality of Life
It is easy to extoll the virtues of dentures that are an exact fit, but broad terms don’t always tell the whole story. Below are concrete ways better dentures can make you look and feel better.
1. You Can Speak More Clearly
When getting dentures for the first time, being able to speak as you did when you had all your natural teeth can be amazing. Over time, though, the dental appliance will loosen and you may feel too embarrassed to talk as often. These dentures from Calgary are specifically designed to work well, for a long time, with a moving mouth.
2. You Will Most Likely Find It Easier to Eat Normally
Dentures improve eating, but if they’re not formed to painstakingly complement your face, it will more easily be worn out as the years go by. With poor dentures, you may find yourself making small adjustments, like chewing on only one side of your mouth, or avoiding food that’s difficult to bite into.
3. It Can Help You Look Younger
If you choose to go with Dr. Westersund’s facial rejuvenation dentures, the promise is in the name itself. By providing the same support as your natural teeth would, they can lessen wrinkles and lines on your face. Think of this effect as a facelift without getting a facelift.
For better stability, rejuvenation dentures may also be implant supported. This option is better for jawbone health. Less bone regression helps prevent the drawn and sunken look typically associated with wearing dentures long term.
4. The Comfort Can Lead to Less Pain and Discomfort
It’s all down to better maintained health and a more harmonious fit. Facial rejuvenation dentures or implant dentures can marginally lessen or even eliminate the discomfort you may have come to accept and even expect from wearing a dental appliance.
