If you are resigned to losing a tooth or in fact, all your teeth in Weston-Super-Mare, there are many reasons why you should get them replaced. The major factors behind tooth loss are injury or periodontal disease and this can be a very traumatic moment in your life. In the case of a single tooth, a replacement can prevent further health issues such as gum disease and movement in the teeth that are left behind, but this can be rectified by a bridge, implant or a partial denture. If all the teeth are lost, then the fitting of a full set of dentures is required. Such is the advancement in denture technology and the materials they are manufactured from, they can mirror the look of a full set of natural teeth. Fixing the dentures in place has also advanced with new adhesives and mini implants that keep the dentures solidly in position. Whatever the reason for having this treatment, dentures can have more health related benefits. Cosmetically, dentures can retain the look of the face. If teeth are not replaced, the cheeks will sag and age you very quickly, possibly causing difficult psychological problems further down the line. But the most important reason for having teeth replaced is to maintain the occlusion within the mouth or the ‘bite’. If this issue is not rectified, it can cause problems in the neck, head and upper back leading to ear, eyes and sinus complications.
