Imagine spending the rest of your life with serious discomfort, pain or a smile you are not comfortable about. The prospect is a scary one and there is no better time to have it fixed than now.
Dentures are among the most versatile and affordable solutions to common dental issues. You should consider getting a denture if you have any of the following problems:
- Loose teeth: Apparently, you don’t have to wait until a tooth falls off to have it replaced. When your teeth shift around, it might be a sign you have advanced periodontal disease, which may sometimes call for tooth extraction. Dentures are an excellent treatment for the restoration of your smile and your chewing ability. You might particularly consider them if you are in urgent need of a replacement.
- Gum disease: Your teeth are at risk of falling out if you have gum disease that is characterized by deep pockets and a weakened jawbone. Sometimes your teeth have to be removed to save the damaged gum tissue. Dentures make for the perfect treatment when it comes to this as you don’t have to heal completely to have it fitted.
- Missing teeth: Implants are arguably the closest thing to natural teeth, but they are expensive and may not fit in your budget. Dentures are cost-effective, less invasive and easier to remove and replace, which makes them a good treatment solution to consider while you wait for a permanent solution.
- Rotting or infected teeth: Extraction is usually the recommended option when teeth are too decay-damaged, infected or broken to be repaired using veneers, a crown or bonding. Extremely damaged teeth can cause chewing problems or result in infections such as sepsis, which can be fatal. Consider dentures if you need the extracted teeth replaced immediately.
