Some primitive form of dentures can be traced back to as to early as 700 BC. While modern dentures have evolved considerably in the centuries since the Etruscans were using variations of human and animal teeth for their basic smile restoration needs, there is a reason why dentures have endured, and remain a staple of restorative dental care. The dentists at Northside Family Dentistry in Macon, GA recommend dentures for men and women with various degrees of tooth loss because they are an effective and affordable option for restoring a damaged smile, and maintaining good oral and general health.
