Tooth loss can have a drastic effect on your facial features, causing the lips to sag and the chin to protrude. Fortunately, dentures can help you avoid these changes, although you may still notice some degree of sagging or wrinkles. People often worry that dentures will make their face appear smaller, but this is usually due to ill-fitting dentures that are too large for the mouth. This can give a toothed look to the face.
Fortunately, modern cosmetic dentistry techniques can be used to design and fit dentures that will make you look younger and healthier. Implant-supported dentures are a great option as they replace the roots of the teeth, stimulating the jaw so that the body does not remove them. This helps to provide support for facial features and prevent bone loss. However, if they are not properly fitted, you may still experience some bone loss.
When it comes to how dentures will look on your face, it depends on the type of dentures you choose. Most dentures don't completely replace the volume that comes from a healthy jaw and a full set of teeth, so it's understandable to be concerned about this. However, with well-fitted dentures and implant-supported dentures, you can rejuvenate your youthful appearance and avoid a saggy face.
