Missing teeth can alter the appearance of the face and age it prematurely. It is important to wear partial dentures in order to avoid several potential problems. Adjacent teeth get displaced as time goes on, causing chewing, articulation and aesthetic problems, in addition to premature wear of the remaining teeth. By wearing partial dentures, you prevent neck pain, earaches and headaches. Also, poor chewing can lead to digestive problems.
It is essential to replace your dentures every five years, in addition to scheduling annual visits.
