How do dentures work? Should I get dentures?

Dentures | Bayport MN Dentist Dentures or partial dentures are a dental treatment option that has been utilize for many years with great success.  Dentures are a removable prosthesis utilized to replace several missing teeth to potentially all of a patients missing teeth.  If a patient has lost most or all of their natural teeth dentures can help to restore eating and speaking ability and greatly improve esthetic appearance.  Missing teeth not only hinders eating, but without teeth supporting the cheeks and lips facial muscles can start to become weaker and sag, leading to hampered speaking and a “sagged” facial profile.  A denture not only helps with eating, but can greatly improve facial profile and speaking ability.
