A common question you will have is will dentures change the way I look?
That is a good question since some dentures actually look like false teeth. Make sure you discuss this with your dentist to get assurances that your dentures will be made at a reputable dental lab. The goal should be to make them look like your natural teeth.
Loose fitting dentures can be miserable.
Getting dentures that are loose fitting will cause hassles in your everyday life. Besides rattling around in your mouth eating can be a big problem.
Biting into an apple is next to impossible. Going out to eat can be an embarrassment because you can only eat foods with a fork.
Adding to your misery some of your food you are chewing will get stuck behind your dentures and you will have to excuse yourself to go to the bathroom to rinse them. Make sure you get a proper fit and you can avoid some of these problems.
When will my dentures wear out?
That will depend on the care you give your dentures through the years. In this day and time a lot of dentures are made of plastic which makes them very easy to take care of. Even though they are plastic they actually look like real teeth.
Don’t use a regular tooth brush to clean your dentures because it can cause groves to appear and therefore shorten the life of your new teeth. Use a brush designed for cleaning dentures and this will make your new set of teeth will last many years.
Will I have to use that gooey stuff each day to hold my dental appliance in place?
Not necessarily. Getting dentures that can be attached with anchors will do a good job of holding them in place. Of course this will add to the expense.
If you are doing a partial it may possibly be attached to the adjoining teeth. Fit is very important and all dentists will tell you to come in on a periodic basis to check your fit.
How much will my new dentures cost?
This will be hard to determine unless you schedule an appointment with your dentist. You will be presented with several options and you will have to determine if the option you choose will fit into your budget.
