Will I notice a big difference?
What are dentures? Dentures are a set of false teeth that enable individuals to eat naturally and smile with confidence. You can have either a complete set of dentures or a partial set – depending on how many teeth you are missing and how many need to be replaced.
Will I notice a big difference? It depends on how bad your teeth were in the first place, before your dentures were fitted. You will certainly notice a difference in eating and you might find it quite difficult at first.
You may also find it difficult to pronounce some words. Don’t worry, you haven’t suddenly acquired an inability to speak – you will just have to give your mouth time to get used to the new shape of the dentures.
Some people also notice that dentures make a difference to their facial appearance. It isn’t usually something we notice until we start to lose our teeth, but they play a significant role in facial balance, enhancing our cheeks and giving extra definition to your face. Of course, if you’ve lost your damaged and rotten teeth and replaced them with dentures, you’ll have a better smile too.
