Dentures are plastic teeth that sit freely on the gums. Today, removable dentures are a last resort. The mouth is often poorly accepting of dentures, resulting in pain, lack of denture wear, poor aesthetics and damage to remaining teeth. Studies have shown that as the number of natural teeth decreases, so too does the dietary intake of fibre, fruits and vegetables. The continual movement of most dentures results in poorly chewed food (digestive problems), poorer nutrition, loose teeth and jaw bone deterioration.
