People may get dentures for a variety of reasons. Most commonly, people want to get dentures to improve their appearance. If people are missing all of their teeth, they often look older and their faces look shorter and more "hollow." Dentures help make people look younger, and they help fill out facial features. People who are missing a significant number of teeth may also want dentures to help them eat and speak more easily.

Jerry Gordon, Dentistry, answeredMissing teeth is a common problem for many people who have had teeth removed because of extensive cavities, gum disease, injuries, and those who may not have developed some of their teeth due to an inherited trait. A denture is a relatively quick, inexpensive, and painless way to replace missing teeth.
