Losing your teeth doesn’t have to mean an end to sharing your smile with the world. Affordable quality dentures can restore your self-esteem by giving you back the supportive structure you had before you lost your teeth and allowing you to speak and eat normally again. To find out more, consult an affordable dentist or prosthodontist who can evaluate your mouth and any remaining teeth to see what type of dentures would best restore your smile. At your first appointment and after your dentures are placed, ask questions so that you understand the process of getting dentures and how you can get the most from them. Answers to the following questions can help you prepare for your new dentures.

  • How will my dentures affect my speech?

  • Are there foods I should avoid to prevent damaging my new dentures?
