Dentures for Any Age – Reasons Why You May Need Dentures

By: | Tags: | March 21st, 2018

Both partial and complete dentures have become one of the most popular tooth replacement solutions. However, many still think that dentures are for older patients. At Aesthetic Dentures, we believe that dentures are for any age. With dentures, you can smile with confidence and eat and talk just like you did before.

Who May Need Dentures?

If you have missing teeth, the dentist may suggest dentures. This can be difficult to hear, and you may be thinking I can’t have dentures, not at my age! Well, we are here to say that dentures have changed, and they are a great tooth replacement option for all ages. Don’t just take our word for it, according to the research by The Journal of Prosthetic Dentistry over 37.9 million adults in the U.S. are expected to be wearing dentures by 2020. Dentures have changed and now look, function and feel natural.

Reasons Why You Would Need Dentures

There are many reasons why your dentist may recommend dentures. Some of the main reasons you would need a full or partial denture are:

Injury – One of the most common causes of tooth loss is an injury. If you have an accident at home or maybe a sporting injury it can result in damaged teeth and gums or teeth falling out. If you do suffer an injury with tooth loss, a denture can efficiently and successfully fix your smile.

Issues with Gums – If you have sore, swollen or bleeding gums you may be suffering from gum disease. When gum disease is left untreated it can cause tooth loss. If you do lose teeth from gum disease dentures can restore your smile.

Appearance – If you have missing teeth that have no replacement solution it can result in a change in your appearance. Your skin and face can sag, sink and change shape. Not only that but any remaining teeth can shift. A denture can stop this from happening and give you your confidence back. You can laugh, smile and talk with peace of mind that there are no gaps.

Tooth Decay – When oral hygiene is poor it can lead to tooth decay. Decay can also be caused by diet or hereditary conditions even though you brush and attend dental check-ups.  If you have teeth that are rotten or falling out due to tooth decay a denture may be suggested. You can have the bad teeth removed and put a denture in their place. This stops decay and the other issues and gives you your smile back.
