Such A Nice Smile Can Be Ruined By Missing Teeth

Although missing teeth aren’t the end of the world they can have a negative effect on a person’s life. Having missing teeth can make a person appear older, less successful, or even project the impression of poverty or low self-esteem. Dentures and partials can be a truly affordable solution for replacing those missing teeth. Bright Side Dental provides very natural looking, beautiful dentures and partials.

The replacement of missing teeth is crucial not only for the sake of appearance but also for health reasons. When teeth are missing a number of forms of malnutrition can be caused by inadequate chewing. Nourishment from the food we eat becomes accessible to the digestive system only when food is properly chewed.

A person’s sense of themselves, their self-esteem, is often affected by missing teeth. Knowing that the impression that they give the world is in large part in their smile, and having to look in the mirror each day and see that smile ruined by missing teeth is enough to drive someone into grief.

When teeth are not replaced with partials or dentures a sagging in the facial muscles is likely to occur. Drooping facial muscle can cause a person to seem older and of course, a person’s speech is very often affected by missing teeth.

It’s unfortunate that even in this highly advanced technological society missing teeth are still so commonplace. Common causes are tooth decay and periodontal disease, and these can be avoided. But in many cases a tooth got knocked out accidentally.

But once a tooth or teeth are missing, it is obviously important, for health and appearance, to replace these teeth as soon as possible. An article by the American Dental Association covered this recently and emphasized the importance of replacing teeth:

“If you’ve lost all of your natural teeth, whether from periodontal disease, tooth decay or injury, complete dentures can replace your missing teeth and your smile. Replacing missing teeth will benefit your appearance and your health. Without support from the denture, facial muscles sag, making a person look older. You’ll be able to eat and speak—things that people often take for granted until their natural teeth are lost.”

Lost teeth are very easily replaced with a partial denture or with bridges, when all are not missing. Partial dentures are often found to be less costly than dental implants or fixed bridges, and are removable. These might be particularly suitable for patients who have lost a few teeth from a row.

If all the teeth have fallen out, or need to be removed, and dental implants are not a viable option for any number of reasons, then the other solution is dentures. Bright Side Dental pride themselves on raising the standard in dentures. Natural looking, comfortable dentures that are easy to chew with, speak with, and smile with, is the standard always sought by Bright Side.

It is, of course, important for a full denture to permit proper chewing and thus make available nutrition from the food, and also to provide vital support to the facial muscles. Ability to speak correctly is also an important factor in well fitting dentures.

And perhaps most importantly, dentures will provide the patient with a beautiful smile. A beautiful smile makes the most common first impression for people, and a smile, as they say, is often worth a thousand words. In order to replace those missing teeth, Bright Side Dental provides very natural looking, beautiful dentures and partials at all metro Detroit, Michigan dentist locations.
