Are Affordable Quality Dentures Part of Your Future?

dca-blog_article-12_seven-signs-dentures-are-in-your-future

You might think that dentures are for other people, but they’re more prevalent than you realize. If you practice excellent oral hygiene, and see your dentist regularly, you might be able to avoid wearing dentures, but if you have a history of tooth problems, they may be an inevitable part of your future. Fortunately, today’s dentures are far superior to false teeth of the past. Depending on your preferences and dental needs, conventional or implant-supported removable or fixed permanent dentures may be viable options. If you’re not sure whether you need dentures or not, here are seven warning signs you should keep in mind.

  1. You have frequent or severe tooth pain, and you’ve ignored it. A bad toothache can be a signal that decay has progressed to a tooth’s pulp. Whenever teeth are badly damaged and left untreated, there’s a chance that conservative treatments won’t be enough to save them.
  2. You’re too embarrassed to smile. Some people get dentures for cosmetic reasons, even if their teeth are technically healthy.
  3. You don’t see your dentist twice a year. Semi-annual dental check-ups make it possible for small problems to be discovered and treated before serious damage occurs. If dental disease progresses and requires extractions, dentures may start calling your name.
  4. You have bleeding, swollen, tender, or red gums. If you treat early gum disease aggressively, you might escape permanent damage. However, if you let periodontal disease progress until it causes tooth loss, you’re headed for denture territory.
  5. You’ve already lost one or more teeth. To replace them and prevent shifting and other problems, dentures may be the most practical and affordable option.
  6. You find it difficult to consume hard or chewy foods. Problems chewing foods with challenging textures can be a sign of tooth fracture, gum disease, decay, and other problems that could eventually result in an extraction and a need for tooth replacement.
  7. You have loose or shifting teeth, or the gaps between them are getting wider. These symptoms often indicate bone loss related to undiscovered periodontal disease. If bone loss is severe, tooth loss may be inevitable.
