Dentures offer many benefits that can make your life easier. Your Olympia Fields, IL, dentist, Dr. Vincent Oganwu of South Suburban Dental Care, can help you decide if dentures are a good choice for you.

When Dentures Are An Ideal Option

You may benefit from dentures if you're concerned about:

  • Your Appearance: Tooth loss can lower your self-esteem or make you feel self-conscious in business or social settings. Restoring lost teeth with dentures can boost your self-esteem and self-confidence. Today's dentures look more natural than ever and provide a better fit than those your grandparents may have worn. Losing all of the teeth in your upper or lower jaw can give your mouth a sunken appearance that makes you look much older than you are. Dentures help support your facial muscles and improve your appearance.
  • Your Chewing Ability: Eating a variety of foods becomes impossible when you've lost most or all of your teeth. Without teeth to bite, grind, and tear foods, chewing becomes difficult. Dentures make it possible to eat a variety of foods once again and enjoy your favorite meals in Olympia Fields, IL.
  • Your Health: Tooth loss can also affect your health. If you've opted to exist on a diet of soft foods and liquids, you may not get all of the vitamins and nutrients you need for good health. As a result, you may be more prone to catch colds and other viral illnesses. Swallowing food whole can also cause problems. In addition to being a choking hazard, swallowing food without chewing it can cause an upset stomach. It's much easier for your stomach to break down food when it's been chewed.
  • Your Speech: Your teeth help you pronounce certain sounds. After tooth loss, you may notice that people have difficulty understanding you due to the change in your speech. When you replace your lost teeth with dentures, you'll find that it's much easier to communicate.
  • Your Remaining Teeth: Partial dentures reduce wear and tear on your remaining teeth. If you only chew with a few teeth, those teeth may be more likely to become cracked or broken.
