That is why Dr. Anthony J. Collins here at Gentle Dental Care in Mundelein, Illinois, is here to talk to you about dentures and why they might be a great option for your smile.

In a nutshell, dentures are a removable appliance that is placed on your gums to restore your smile. Your teeth are needed for talking to others and chewing your food while you eat. Dentures can restore these functions when you suffer a loss of teeth despite the cause of your tooth loss. Without teeth, your cheeks can sag changing the appearance of your cheeks and face. Luckily, dentures can fill out the appearance on your cheeks and can be made to look natural, so your smile is restored.

Because dentures are removable so easily, you can take them off each and every night to clean. Keeping your dentures in excellent shape is the key to keeping your smile and gums healthy and strong for a lifetime. It’s important to note, dentures might feel awkward until you grow accustomed to them. However, with time, they will begin to feel more natural and give you the functions you need for your smile.
