Do All Dentures Give You That Sunken Face Appearance?

Missing teeth can have a huge impact on your appearance, but so can dentures that are improperly fitted or inexpensive. If you’re going to restore your smile, but wanting to avoid a sunken look, then look no further. Our office is here to help you make the best choices that will not only improve your appearance, but your overall oral health.

Ill-fitting Dentures

One of the most common concerns that people come to us with is the fear that they will look like they have a sagging face, sunken lips and appear older than they truly are. This is an understandable concern because most dentures do not completely replace the fullness that comes from a healthy jaw and a full set of teeth.

Dentures that are too short will cause the lips and cheeks to fold in creating a sunken look and improperly fitted ones can cause bone deterioration which will also change the shape of your face. We believe that the best way to begin to restore your appearance is with properly fitted dentures.

Close monitoring and checkups will help us make sure that your dentures continue to fit your mouth perfectly. We check for changes in the shape of your jaw as well as check the status of your dentures. This will help keep your remaining natural teeth in alignment and your jawbone will maintain its density for a longer period of time.

Our skilled staff would like to encourage you to not live with ill-fitting dentures that negatively affect your appearance and sabotage your oral health. Please give our office a call and set up a consultation with your next checkup so that we can evaluate your situation and get you back on the road to a healthier, more youthful appearance. We would like to help you maintain your best smile and we look forward to hearing from you soon.
