What dentures do is replace lost teeth, which is pretty much their only purpose. However, that one purpose can help in a surprising number of ways because missing teeth can affect us more drastically than we may realize.
We may not realize that teeth help us talk clearly. Even a few missing teeth can make speaking more challenging than before. Not only that, eating can be affected too. Dentures can come to the rescue by restoring the teeth so we can chew and talk more effectively again.
Dentures can also help our face maintain its natural form. Our teeth help our facial muscles stay up by providing some support. When teeth go missing, our facial muscles can start to sag, which can negatively affect our appearance. This issue can be easily dealt with as the dentures can bear up the muscles.
