Why Dentures Make You Look Older

Posted on 11/23/2016 by Dr Wael Garine

If you are considering dentures versus some other form of restorative dental work, you may want to consider the appearance that dentures will cause you to have.

Although they may seem to be a cheap and easy fix at the moment, consider the future impact, and consider whether other forms of dental reconstruction such as dental implants may be a better long term option for you.

Dentures Affect Facial Muscles

Perhaps the biggest issue with dentures is the impact they can have on your facial muscles. Most people are not aware of this, but your teeth actually serve a very important role aside from their obvious use as instruments to tear and chew food.

You see, your teeth provide support for the rest of your face, and properly aligned and functioning teeth will help keep your face from developing abnormal lip and facial muscle features.

In fact, if you did not have your teeth, your face would soon begin to droop, and your upper lip would begin to thin out as gravity pulled everything downward.

As such, wearing dentures can pose a risk, particularly in those people who only wear them while eating or speaking. Prolonged periods of time without your dentures in could quickly result in drooping, sagging, and premature wrinkling.

Dentures May Not Be the Best Choice for a Youthful Appearance

While dentures may cost less than other forms of dental reconstruction such as dental implants, the fact is that in the long run you may end up regretting your choice to use them.

At a minimum, if you do decide to get dentures, you should make it a point to wear them as much as possible. As a result of wearing them for longer periods of time, your face muscles will enjoy more support. What's more, you will be able to slow down the effects of gravity on your face.
