Dentures, sets of false teeth, are used by multiple of our patients. And while false teeth are a great option if you are missing chompers, many our patients have let us know that they’re unhappy they let their teeth get to the point of needing false teeth. If you have any missing pearly whites, complete or partial false teeth might be right for you, and we’d be thrilled to arrange a consultation for you. If you still have all of your natural pearly whites, please think about the following guidance.
There are many reasons why people lose chompers and need to get dentures: poor dental hygiene, infrequent dental visits, physical injury, acid reflux, high blood pressure, advanced age and more. The best way to prevent needing dentures is to practice a healthy dental hygiene routine.
Keeping a solid hygiene routine means brushing your chompers with fluoride toothpaste twice daily, flossing once per day and visiting our office for cleanings often. To lessen your risk of forming periodontal disease and decaying chompers, avoid tobacco, limit alcohol intake and monitor intake of excessively sugary foods and drinks.
We want all of our patients to enjoy their natural chompers for life. If for any reason you do need to get false teeth, don’t fret: they can be comfortable, attractive and powerful substitutes for natural chompers.
