Dentures are an excellent solution for people with severe dental problems, but they’re not for everyone. Most people prefer to keep their natural teeth for as long as possible, and dentists agree that tooth restoration is better than replacement when possible. Sometimes, however, tooth problems become severe enough to consider dentures. Here are three signs it may be time to give dentures some serious thought.
You’re Losing Your Teeth
It may be time to get dentures if your teeth are falling out on their own. This process usually begins slowly. One day you’ll notice that your teeth are shifting, or that the gaps between them are getting wider. The teeth may turn or start to lean in or out. When this happens, the teeth are moving because the jaw bone that holds them in place is deteriorating. Eventually, the bone will no longer hold the tooth and it will fall out. Though there are ways to replace teeth, it is far more cost-effective to treat multiple missing teeth with dentures than with implants.
You Experience Frequent Pain
A sore tooth may be simply that. If so, a trip to the dentist for a cavity fix may be all you need. If, however, you experience pain frequently and in multiple teeth, it may be time for dentures. Some patients experience pain all the time while others have trouble eating certain foods or chewing. Remember that pain from your teeth may not be exclusive to your mouth. Those in need of dentures often experience frequent indigestion because they can’t chew their food properly.
Your Dentist Recommends Them
Dentists prefer keeping natural teeth healthy to replacing them with dentures. If a skilled dentist, like those at Northwest Dental Services and Implant Center, recommends dentures to you, it’s time to start considering them. You should, of course, ask your dentist if there are any other options and carefully weigh them all. There is, however, a good chance that dentures are your best choice if that is the option your dentist is suggesting.
Perhaps the most important reason to consider dentures is to regain your smile. If you feel self-conscious about your smile and make an effort to hide it, it’s absolutely time to visit a dentist and learn more about fixing your teeth. Life should be full of as many smiles as possible. If you’re too worried about yours to enjoy socializing, it’s time to look into tooth restoration or replacement with dentures.
It’s so hard to look the way we want to look in a world which demands certain standards of beauty from women. There have been improvements over recent years, but we’re still a long way from a society in which people are free to look and feel the way they desire without enduring comments about the way other people would want us to look. The important thing is that you shouldn’t cave into these requests. You should have an appearance which works for you. That’s the most important thing. You should look the way you want to look. Wear makeup or don’t wear it; wear a certain style of clothes or don’t.
