Dentures On the Decline?

Posted in Dentures

Many dental experts are sure that one day false teeth will no longer be an option. Why?

Changes In Dentistry

Dentistry used to be all about patching up painful teeth and pulling them when they couldn’t be fixed. But changes in understanding of dental materials and the mechanisms behind disease have revolutionized the scene.

People are holding onto their teeth longer because of a simple increase in awareness of dental health.

Fluoride has also played a major role in improving dental health. Making this mineral more accessible to people through professional treatments, dental products, and public fluoridation programs has directly contributed to a decrease in tooth decay.

Techniques for restoring teeth are much more conservative than past attempts. Teeth stay whole for longer and folks hold onto them for years. Dental implants are quickly becoming the preferred alternative to classic dentures.

Yes, it seems that dentures could soon be a thing of the past. But there is one factor that seems bent on keeping dentures on the list of services.

One Thing That Will Never Change

Dentists and researchers are constantly searching for ways to make teeth stronger and last longer. But none of that means anything if the patients themselves don’t care about keeping their teeth. People are often quick to assume that it’s the cheap and easy dental option so they don’t mind losing all of their natural teeth, one by one.

As long as people aren’t flossing and brushing, dentures will be a thing! Hold onto those teeth you have left for as long as you can. Your dentist will help you figure out how you can do just that.
