They can also be beneficial for those who have lost multiple teeth due to severe damage, decay, or injuries. There is no suggested age or time to get dentures. It varies from person to person depending on the condition of their teeth and their comfort.

Dentures are beneficial for those who may be struggling to speak or eat normally due to issues with their teeth. With either full or partial dentures, you can restore functionality to your mouth and feel more comfortable and confident in your smile. These tips can help you decide if you’re ready to get dentures.

Periodontal Disease

A major factor for many people who consider dentures is periodontitis, which is a severe gum infection that causes the teeth to deteriorate, leading to loose teeth. If the problems are caught early on, you can prevent further damage and save your teeth. However, if they are not, it can lead to the loss of multiple teeth.

If you have or have had severe periodontitis that has led to the loss of several teeth, your dentist may recommend dentures.

Loose Teeth

Whether you have loose teeth due to periodontal disease or due to an injury, there is no way to restore the bone that has been lost. Without the proper bone support, your teeth may continue to feel loose, affecting their ability to function optimally. If you have loose teeth, dentures can replace them and improve your ability to chew and speak.

Loss of Teeth

Loss of teeth can occur from severe accidents or from periodontal disease if it has been left untreated. With periodontal disease, if the teeth are not replaced or treated, they will continue to loosen until you lose them completely. At this point, it is highly recommended to see a professional about dentures.

Low Confidence

A smile is one of the first things we notice when we look at someone. If you are feeling self-conscious about missing or decaying teeth, this can lead you to feel insecure. In fact, many people with missing, decayed, or damaged teeth will avoid social gatherings in order to avoid having to chew food or speak in front of others due to the condition of their teeth.

With dentures, you can restore your smile and feel confident going to public outings.
