AM I TOO YOUNG FOR DENTURES?
Although a lot of people imagine only older people need dentures, they can help younger people, too. Patients as young as 30 years old can get dentures after they’ve lost teeth from advanced gum disease or decay. Medical problems, such as acid reflux, may also make dentures necessary for younger patients. Other people may lose several teeth after a single event, like a serious car accident or sports injury. Whatever the reason you need dentures, getting them can help restore the health and function of your mouth as well as your confidence in your appearance. If you need to replace missing teeth with dentures, schedule a consultation with DentalWorks in Crystal Lake, IL to get more information on the options in dentures so you can choose which fits your needs, goals, and budget.
ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY IN DENTURES
If you don’t want dentures because you think they’re a bulky device full of fake teeth that fit awkwardly, you will be amazed at how much dentures have improved. Advanced equipment and stronger materials mean that dentures are natural-looking. When fitted properly by a board-certified dentist, dentures are very secure in your mouth. These days, there are lots of choices when you get dentures, which means you can select the dentures that match your needs and goals. Once you decide to get dentures, you’ll face a choice between removable or implant-supported dentures.
PARTIALS OR A FULL DENTURE?
Along with choosing between implant and removable dentures, you can get dentures that are full or partials. Despite what you might believe, dentures don’t need to replace all of you teeth.
WHY WOULD I NEED DENTURES?
If you have several missing teeth, you are a candidate for dentures. Although many patients want to improve their smile, there’s several other reasons to choose dentures. To begin, missing teeth make it harder for your mouth to complete its major jobs — speaking and chewing food. Every time you loose a tooth, it is more difficult to talk and chew. Also, lost teeth impact your gums, jaw, and remaining teeth. 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 challenging to hold dentures or other restorations. Finally, large gaps in your smile can impact your confidence and might be holding you back in your professional or personal life.
