Dentures are removable appliances that can replace missing teeth and help restore your smile. If you’ve lost all of your natural teeth, whether from gum disease, tooth decay or injury, replacing missing teeth will benefit your appearance and your health because dentures make it easier to eat and speak better than you could without teeth. Bowtie Dental in Grand Rapids, MI will provide a set of dentures if a patient is in need of them. Dr. Langellier will also help patients already using dentures to ensure they are still fitting properly and in good condition.
When you lose all of your teeth, facial muscles can sag, making you look older. Dentures can help fill out the appearance of your face and profile. They can be made to closely resemble your natural teeth so that your appearance does not change much. Dentures may even improve the look of your smile.
Like your teeth, your dentures should be brushed daily to remove food particles and plaque. Brushing also can help keep the teeth from staining.
Be sure to still schedule regular dental check-ups if you have dentures. If you have any questions about your dentures, or if they stop fitting well or become damaged, Dr. Langellier and our staff are happy to help.
