Are you missing teeth? Does the thought of having to replace them seem daunting and something that is just better left alone? You may not think that missing teeth is a big deal and that you can live without them, but the truth is that there are several reasons why you should consider replacing them. At Riverside Dental Clinic in Drumheller, Alberta, Dr. Kenneth Poznikoff and his team offer comfortable dentures made of quality materials for people with missing teeth. Both partial and full dentures are made available depending on your need.
Why You Should Consider Tooth Replacement
When you are missing even a single tooth, your dental health could be in line for some long-term complications. When a gap is created in your smile due to a missing tooth, adjacent teeth can begin to shift into this gap. This creates a gap on the other side of the adjacent tooth, which the tooth next to it can now shift into. Over time, what results is a smile full of gapped and misaligned teeth. A tooth replacement, such as a denture, will prevent teeth from shifting into a gap because the gap will no longer exist.
When you are missing teeth, it could affect how your body is able to absorb nutrients from the food you chew. Chewing is the first step of the digestion process, and when you cannot chew your food thoroughly, your body will not break it down the same way it would with food that is thoroughly chewed. This snowballs, and suddenly your body is not able to absorb the nutrients from the food you are eating due to it not being thoroughly chewed. You may begin to have vitamin and mineral deficiencies that you used to not worry about when you had all your teeth.
