7 Common Signs You Need Dentures 

A popular reason to get dentures is to replace missing teeth, but did you know there are more reasons why someone may want dentures? 

If you are experiencing any of the following signs, it might be time for you to consider getting dentures. 

Here at First Class Dentures we offer consultations for different types of dentures, from complete dentures to dental implants as replacement teeth. If you are experiencing any of the following signs, contact us.  

1. Missing teeth 

    Starting with one of the main reasons, missing teeth can be a clear indicator that dentures may be necessary.  

    If you have missing teeth, you are at risk of developing significant oral health issues besides the obvious aesthetic concerns. Dentures can serve as a brilliant way of replacing missing teeth, from speaking, eating, function and aesthetics. This can help improve your self esteem and the quality of your life.  

    Difficulty chewing food 

    Dentures can provide the oral strength you need to chew food properly. If you have missing or damaged teeth, you may struggle to eat properly. This can lead to frustrations when trying to enjoy meals that require chewing.  

     Dentures offer a practical solution to this problem by restoring your ability to chew food properly, improving your diet, and promoting better overall well-being.  

    Speech problems 

    Teeth play an essential role in articulating certain sounds. If we have missing teeth, we may struggle to produce certain sounds which can lead to a lack of confidence when speaking.  

    Dentures can play a crucial role in addressing speech problems by providing support for your lips and tongue, enabling you to speak more effectively. They can help restore your natural speech patterns and boost your confidence in social interactions. 

    Changes in facial appearance 

    Ageing isn’t limited to the wrinkles on our skin. There are multiple facial structures that help harmoniously create a youthful appearance. 

    When we lose teeth, we can develop a sunken appearance or a shorter facial height. This can result in a prematurely aged appearance, impacting self-esteem and confidence.  

    Dentures can help restore facial volume by replacing missing teeth and providing support to the surrounding structures. They contribute to a more youthful, natural appearance.  

    Shifting or loose teeth 

    Our teeth all work in harmony to prevent the other teeth from shifting and moving. Losing a tooth can weaken the support of the remaining natural teeth. Over time, this can weaken the tooth and lead to more tooth loss.  

    Dentures provide essential support to your existing teeth and help maintain their proper alignment. Whether you opt for denture implants or partial dentures, dentures will stabilise your oral structures and prevent further shifting. This will help your remaining teeth last longer! 

    Tooth decay 

    If you have excessive tooth decay, it can be spread across other healthy teeth in your mouth.  

    When tooth decay progresses to a severe extent, it can lead to the loss of multiple healthy teeth. This not only affects oral health but also impacts chewing function and aesthetics. 

    If your teeth are rotting, take this as a sign to get your tooth removed professionally and replaced with false teeth

    Self esteem issues 

    If you’re feeling down about the appearance of your teeth, it might be time to contact a dental clinician for dentures.  

    Dentures can play a significant role in addressing self-esteem issues by providing a natural-looking, functional smile. They can restore your appearance and improve your ability to interact with confidence, enhancing your self-esteem and quality of life.
