Many people consider dentures to be a rather common dental invention that is typically worn by grandparents.  However, according to a 2009 Fixodent Survey, about 20 million women in Calgary and worldwide from the age of 40 and older are currently wearing partial or full dentures.  This number is expected to continue rising as time passes on.  Calgary denturist, Vlad Dumbrava, is disclosing a few signs that may indicate you need dentures.  Read on to learn more. 

First, if your gums are constantly bleeding and tender, you may need dentures.  Gum disease, or gingivitis, is one of the main causes of tooth loss and bone loss.

Another sign that you may require dentures is severe tooth pain.  This is indicative of advanced tooth decay that has compromised the nerve and possibly the entire tooth.

Indigestion can suggest that you may need dentures too.  Often times, individuals with cracked teeth or sore spots have difficulty chewing and will take larger bites of food and it upsets their stomachs.  If you are suffering from constant stomach pain, think about your teeth and whether they are the culprit or not.

Lastly, you may need dentures if you’re embarrassed to smile.  Dentures are not only functional, but they are also cosmetic.  Some patients in Calgary elect to have partial or full dentures made earlier than necessary because they provide you with confidence and a new healthy smile. 

If you have any of these symptoms consult with your Calgary denturist about getting dentures today.

Dentures may or may not be in your future, but they are very common amongst our society. If you feel that you may need dentures, call Calgary denturist, Vlad Dumbrava at Future Smiles Denture Clinic in the SW today at 403.475.0016.
