Frequently Asked Questions
Age is not a factor; people can get dentures at any age. However, it is more common for elders or senior citizens to need dentures because they have had their teeth longer.
If you regularly care for your oral health and do not have gum disease, it’s unlikely to need dentures. For patients with gum disease the risk increases due. It is possible to have never had a cavity in your entire life, but still develop gum disease which could result in a need for dentures or alternative treatments.
There is no better alternative to full dentures than your natural teeth. If tooth replacement is necessary, a dental implant is the most functional replacement option. A bridge would be the second-best tooth replacement option when determining quality of life and functionality.
Affordability. Support. Removability. Dentures are the most affordable option for full-mouth tooth replacement. Dentures and partial dentures support your jaw structure, help you chew, and speak clearly. Unlike bridges or implants, dentures are removeable which can be beneficial to some people.
Lack of support. Lifestyle changes. Seeking adjustments.
You do not get the same amount of chewing support in a partial or full denture as you would with your natural teeth or even a bridge or a dental implant.
When you choose to get dentures, you are choosing to live your life differently than pre-dentures. There is a learning curve to overcome when familiarizing yourself with your new dentures. A complete denture like having a big block of plastic in your mouth. Oftentimes, it takes a while to get used to.
Partial and complete dentures can be viable replacements for your teeth depending on your budget and needs. Nothing beats your natural teeth, but sometimes replacing them is necessary. Talk to your dentist or call our office to learn more about how we make and fit dentures.
