Are Dentures Right for You?
Have you reached a point in your life where you’re afraid to smile because you don’t want anyone to see your teeth? Do you have difficulty chewing because you have missing teeth? How about dental pain? Are you constantly battling one hot spot after another in your mouth? If so, now might be the time for you to consider dentures.
Dentures are about so much more than aesthetics, though confidence in your smile is a powerful tool in helping you advance in your job. They can also help you get closer to the people you love without fear of someone seeing something you might not want them to.
Signs You Might Need Dentures
In addition to the situations mentioned above, your body might be telling you it’s time for dentures if you have the following problems.
Constantly Bleeding Gums – Redness, swelling, and bleeding of the gums are all indicators of gum disease, the number one cause of tooth loss in adults. If left unchecked, this inflammation can spread far beyond your mouth even affecting the health of your heart. Removing infected, inflamed teeth and getting dentures instead can reduce your overall inflammation and improve your overall health.
Constant Problems with Indigestion – Indigestion often happens when you’re not properly chewing your food. Most people in need of dentures have difficulty properly chewing food because of pain and sensitivity. Getting dentures helps you chew food more thoroughly preventing much of your indigestion.
Missing Teeth – The odds are good that if you have missing teeth, surrounding teeth could be in trouble as well. That is because it places additional pressure on the teeth surrounding the missing teeth and can cause them to break down even faster. In these cases, partial dentures can reduce the load placed on your remaining teeth and extend the life and health of your smile.
Dentures are removable prosthetic devices that are used to replace missing teeth. You can get full or partial dentures from a prosthodontist to help restore the beauty of your smile and your dental health.
