False Teeth Day
False Teeth Day is celebrated on the March 9 of every year. False teeth are known as dentures. Dentures are artificial devices that are constructed to replace the missing teeth; they are supported by the soft & hard tissues of the oral cavity. Conventional dentures are removable; wholly and partially removable dentures. However, there are many denture designs, some which rely on clasping onto teeth or dental implants. False teeth are widely made of porcelain and plastic; porcelain will make one feel similar to natural teeth. Dentures can help you in better chewing, speaking and looking. Your tooth health will tell more about your health. So this day is celebrated to remind everyone to take care of their dental health before it is late.
“Whenever they are condemning weaves or breast implants, some people speak so passionately that their false teeth almost fall out.” – Mokokoma Mokhonoana
