If the tragic day comes when you find you have to wear dentures, you may feel that the end is nigh for your smile and a lot of this is due to the portrayal of dentures as horribly false looking and incredibly hard to retain in the mouth.
But before you start writing your will, you would be wise to take a look around central Leeds first for modern dentures. Once you have been measured up, you will find a great choice of materials, which are soft, lifelike and provide optimum suction and stability when fitted into the mouth. Adhesives have also become more durable and stronger, helping increase the security of your dentures.
You can even have mini-implants fitted to hold them even firmly in place. But there is also a more health driven reason behind the need of dentures.
The first is the need to retain the bite of your jaws and having dentures will protect this. The lack of teeth in the mouth can also lead to premature ageing in the face, due to the sagging and creasing of unsupported skin.
Partial dentures have also become more common because dentists prefer to save teeth where they can and they are more preferable to full dentures because they can be attached to the remaining teeth and lock in strongly.
