My jawline seems different. Can dentures changes my jaw?
Yes, it is possible for dentures to change your jawline. In fact, wearing dentures causes you to lose jawbone.
Once your teeth are removed, your body begins to reabsorb the minerals in your jawbone to use elsewhere in your body. The reason for that is your body recognizes your jawbone is no longer needed to support the roots of your teeth. Being efficient, it moves the material elsewhere.
Eventually, you will no longer have enough jawbone to support your dentures.
