THE RIGHT AGE FOR DENTURES
While most people associate dentures with older people, like their parents or grandparents, they are used to help people at any age. Patients as young as 30 years old can get dentures after they’ve lost teeth from advanced gum disease or decay. Certain medical conditions, such as acid reflux, may also make dentures necessary for younger patients. Other people may lose several teeth after a physical trauma. No matter the reason you need dentures or how old you are when you need them, getting them can help restore the function of your mouth and re-gain confidence in your smile. If you need dentures, schedule an appointment with DentalWorks in Dublin, OH to learn about the options in dentures so you can choose which fits your needs.
If you are avoiding dentures because you think of a bulky device full of unnatural looking teeth that fall out easily, you should know that dentures have advanced quite a lot. Advanced technology and stronger materials make dentures natural-looking. When fitted properly by a good dentist, dentures can feel very secure and allow you to wear them confidently. These days, there are lots of choices when you get dentures, which means you can choose the dentures that match your needs, goals, and budget. One of the biggest choices when it comes to dentures is removable dentures or implant-supported dentures.
PARTIALS OR A FULL DENTURE?
Along with choosing between removable and implanted dentures, you can get full or partial dentures. Despite what you might believe, you don’t need to lose all your teeth before you get dentures.
WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM DENTURES?
Dentures are a way to replace missing teeth. Although many patients want to replace missing teeth to improve their smile, there’s bigger reasons to choose dentures. To begin, missing teeth can make it harder for your mouth to complete its most important jobs — eating and speaking. Every time you loose a tooth, it is more difficult to chew and speak clearly. Also, lost teeth impact your other teeth, gums, and jaw. Spaces left by lost teeth allow the remaining teeth to move and become misaligned. Also, if your jawbone and gum tissue aren’t working to hold a tooth, atrophy can occur. This can cause other issues and may make it more difficult to hold dentures or other restorations. Finally, large gaps in your smile can impact your confidence and might cause problems in your professional or personal life.
