3 Reasons Why Your Denturist May Suggest You Need Dentures

Contrary to popular opinion, tooth loss is not always caused by aging. There are multiple issues and oral problems that can lead to the necessity of dentures, including:

1. Gum Disease

Gum disease, especially when left undetected and untreated, is a leading cause of tooth loss in patients of all ages. As the condition progresses, it may cause you to lose the bone and ligaments that support your teeth, making dentures necessary.

Because gum disease is so serious, it’s important to watch out for the early symptoms, such as:

  • Soreness
  • Swollen or red gums
  • Bad breath
  • Loose teeth
  • Metallic or unpleasant taste in the mouth
  • Gums bleeding when you brush or floss your teeth

How to Prevent Gum Disease

Regular and proper brushing and flossing will go a long way to keeping gum disease at bay. In addition, make sure you schedule regular cleanings and checkups with your oral healthcare professional, as this will keep your mouth free of dental plaque.

2. Injury

It’s common to have a tooth knocked out during a fall, accident, or contact sports. Clenching or grinding your teeth can also eventually wear them down and result in tooth loss. Sometimes, the teeth can be preserved, but this may not always be the case.

To protect your teeth, remember to NEVER use them to:

  • Tear off tops, lids, or clothes labels
  • Crack nuts or ice cubes
  • Chew on pens or pencils
  • Loosen knots
  • Cut off thread

Have you sustained a serious tooth injury? Don’t worry! If you have experienced severe tooth/teeth damage from an accident, dentures can quickly and easily restore your smile.

3. Certain Medications

Some common medications, such as blood pressure medications, can damage your teeth by reducing the protective effect of saliva in your mouth. Other drugs and treatments, such as chemotherapy, can impact your teeth by weakening your immune system and your oral health.

Our wide range of tooth loss solutions, including dental implants and dentures, can help restore the aesthetics to your smile and help you live confidently and happily.
