Do You Need Dentures?
If you’re missing one or more of your natural teeth, you may be a good candidate for dentures. Complete dentures are often an excellent option for those who have lost all of their teeth. It doesn’t matter if your teeth have fallen out on their own, been knocked out, or need to be removed due to severe damage or decay. Dentures can replace your natural teeth in almost any situation.
There are numerous advantages to replacing missing teeth. Anyone who is missing teeth could use dentures to achieve the following benefits:
- Better dental health
- Improved speaking and eating
- More attractive smiles
- Less facial sagging
- Stronger self esteem
What to Expect from Dentures
When considering dentures, it’s important to know what to expect. Our team would be more than happy to discuss what you can expect from your dentures. With new dentures, you might experience:
- Initial sensitivity — Our mouths are extremely sensitive and dentures are foreign objects. You will likely notice your dentures at first and think they feel big or bulky. It may be difficult to speak or eat initially. These issues should subside in time.
- Adjustment appointments — We may need to meet with you over the course of several appointments to fit your dentures. Your comfort is important to us, so do not hesitate to reach out to us if you think you need an adjustment.
- Dental care — Even though your natural teeth are gone, you still need to care for your dentures. Brush daily with a soft bristle toothbrush and non-abrasive cleaner, and place your dentures in water when they’re not in your mouth.
