Are You Too Young For Dentures?

Posted in Dentures

Tooth loss can happen at any age.  Lack of dental care, a traumatic accident, reflux or even a genetic disorder can all lead to the loss of your natural teeth at a younger age.  If the appearance of your mouth embarrasses you, dentures can give you an attractive, confident smile that you’ll enjoy showing off.

Living With Your Dentures

Choosing dentures is a decision that will affect you for the rest of your life.  It’s not a decision you make because it’s easier than caring for your existing teeth.  Just like your natural teeth, dentures also require routine care to extend their life, function and beauty:

  • Rinse your dentures after eating
  • Gently clean your dentures each evening with a soft-bristled brush
  • Soaking in a denture cleansing solution, overnight, will leave your dentures cleaner and your mouth feeling fresh the next day

It Takes Time To Adjust To New Dentures

At first, speaking and eating may feel awkward, but with practice you’ll adjust to your dentures so they feel natural to you.  Before you know it, you’ll be laughing, talking, eating and drinking with ease.  Most especially, you’ll enjoy a confident smile, free from the discomfort and embarrassment you might have experienced before dentures.

Are Dentures Right For You?

Are your missing or damaged teeth affecting the function and aesthetics of your smile? Then dentures may be exactly what you need. Dentures are a wonderful option for people just like you, with several types of prosthesis available. Only your dentist knows your mouth and your unique dental needs best.  Schedule a consultation to get started on your complete smile restoration.
