Consider this statistic: According to a recent survey, about 12% of Canadians avoided certain foods because they were having problems with a tooth (or multiple teeth) and eating those particular foods was simply too painful. In most cases, these problems were related to missing teeth or decaying teeth, and people often abstained from foods that were too hard, tough, or sticky.
Unless you have a perfect dental health record and/or you eat every single meal in the form of a smoothie, it’s likely that you’ve found yourself limiting what foods you eat because of a dental problem; and since billions and billions of dollars are spent each year on dental cleaning and dental prosthesis services, it’s easy to see that you’re not alone.
So why does any of this matter?
For starters, it’s important to realize that your dental health plays a major role in your overall health; without healthy teeth, the rest of your body is likely to suffer.
And this matters because there’s really no reason why you should have to suffer from a dental problem, especially something like a missing tooth! Cosmetic dentures today are some of the best options for tooth replacement for a few good reasons:
- Cosmetic dentures don’t just provide an aesthetic solution for tooth loss — with many different types of dentures available today, denturists can custom-fit each set so that no patient has to restrict his or her diet.
- Unlike other dental prosthesis services (like implants), cosmetic dentures tend to be more affordable upfront.
- Cosmetic dentures aren’t just a temporary solution, even if the dentures themselves are temporary. Because it’s very easy to get dentures refitted, you won’t have to forego healthy teeth because your dentures have stopped fitting correctly.
