dentures can make you look older than you are. Dentures grow
old faster than you do. Where you don’t have teeth, your gums
have shrunk and your denture has pulled back into your mouth.
This lack of support for your dentures can cause extra wrinkles
around your mouth and can make your face look “sunken”.
dentures can change your personality. They can keep you from
laughing or smiling like you used to. Maybe you put your hand
in front of your mouth because you’re afraid your dentures have
slipped. And if people are always asking you if you’re sad or
angry, maybe it’s your concern about your dentures.
dentures can cause or aggravate health problems. If your dentures
feel loose, click, slip or cause chewing problems, they can aggravate
other health problems. Problems known to be associated with poorly
fitting dentures include: chronic bad breath, sore spots, jaw
pain, speech difficulties and a host of dietary problems.
Million People wear dentures. 20 million have fit or appearance
problems! If your dentures are more than 5 years old, you
may have forgotten how good dentures can look and feel. People
whose dentures are too old often put up with unnecessary embarrassment
and discomfort. Some even change their lives, spending more time
alone or avoiding laughing, smiling or eating favorite foods.
