Dentures - Old Reliable Friend
You have lost or got your teeth removed for one reason or another. You need to eat food, regain your confidence, smile and appearance. What can you do?
One of the options to fix your missing teeth problem is to have dentures. They have been in existence for a very long time – since 700 BCE, that was, 2700 years ago! Porcelain dentures have been around for more than 250 years.
Dentures are very reliable and very much a default solution to your missing teeth. They are an excellent “low-tech” solution. Unlike implants and bridges, you don’t need strong bones, healthiest jaw, gums or teeth to wear dentures.
Depending upon whether you replace one, more than one or all teeth, dentures can be partial or full. Approximately, 90% of people who don’t have natural teeth wear some type of denture. Seniors aren’t the only people who wear dentures. Anyone can need and wear dentures. For example, hockey players, accident survivors, people with generic disorders and people with periodontal disease. Other reasons could include pregnancy, tooth developmental defects due to severe malnutrition, tooth decay and drug use. Dentures are so common that approximately 19% of the global population wears them – that is 1 in 5 people on the planet!
Correctly fitted dentures are comfortable. With dentures, you can eat almost all foods you used to eat with your natural teeth. With some practice, you are able to clearly speak certain words starting with “C” and “S” that you couldn’t with missing teeth.
Dentures are made to look and feel like your natural teeth. With dentures you shouldn’t see any difference in your appearance. In many instances, they can improve your appearance! You have natural looking beautiful smile because dentures are made of porcelain or plastic. Dentures don’t have gaps between teeth. You won’t look older, at least not because of your teeth! And they don’t get cavities either. Dentures also decrease your bone loss rate and wear and tear of your natural teeth.
Dentures are easy to remove, clean and store, for example, you can store them in cool water in a glass when you are not wearing them overnight. They are easily last 5-8 years or longer. You can easily replace dentures compared to implants and bridges.
Dentures are a cost-effective solution compared to “high-tech” alternatives like dental implants and dental bridges. Cost of your denture will depend upon the type of denture, number of teeth and the type of material used. Most insurance plans cover some or all of the cost of dentures. Please check with your insurance provider or our staff can gladly do this for you.
