Do you need dentures now or expect that you might need the restorations in the future? Although appearance is certainly a key consideration when thinking about restoring your teeth, wearing dentures offers a few other advantages. Your Sherman, TX, dentists, Drs. Julie Folger and Ralf Poineal, can help you find the ideal denture option for you.

Dentures can boost your self-esteem

It can be hard to feel good about the way you look after you lose your teeth. In fact, concerns about your appearance may make you feel less confident in social situations or at work.

Although your grandparents' dentures may have looked like "false" teeth, today's dentures are designed to replicate the natural shape and color of teeth. In fact, people you just meet probably won't realize that you wear dentures.

Dentures may also reduce facial sagging, a common problem after tooth loss. Your teeth help support the muscles in the lower part of your face. Without dentures, sagging and wrinkling may occur, which can age your appearance prematurely.

Dentures improve your nutrition

Consuming pudding, soup, milkshakes and other soft or liquid foods may be fine for a few days, but adults weren't meant to live on a soft diet indefinitely. If you restrict the foods you eat because you can't chew, you won't receive the vitamins, minerals and other nutrients you need for good health.

Some people attempt to eat solid foods without chewing. This practice can lead to an upset stomach and increase your risk of choking. Dentures restore your ability to eat a well-rounded diet and make eating a safe, pleasurable experience once again.

Implant-supported dental implants, the newest denture option offered by your Sherman dentist, provides excellent biting power. The dentures make it easy to bite and chew hard foods and can be more comfortable than full or immediate dentures.

Dentures help you speak

No matter how hard you try, you won't be able to pronounce certain sounds without your teeth. Tooth loss can make communicating difficult and may even contribute to social isolation if you stop trying to talk to other people due to your frustrations. Although it will take a little while to adjust to your dentures, before long, you'll be speaking clearly.

Restore your smile with dentures! Call your Sherman, TX, dentists, Drs. Julie Folger and Ralf Poineal, at (903) 893-2540 to schedule an appointment.
