Modern dentures are very natural-looking and are made from various materials, including acrylic and porcelain. Dentures can be custom-fitted to your mouth for a perfect fit, and they can last for many years with proper care. A consultation with our dentist at Keels Family & Cosmetic Dentistry is the best way to determine if dentures are the right solution for you. People wear dentures for several reasons. Some of these reasons may include:
- All-natural teeth have been destroyed by accidents, sleeping habits, or dental disease
- The sleeping habits of individuals cause damage to their teeth
- Teeth start to become loose, and a person’s gums recede, allowing the teeth to come loose in the mouth
- The teeth are not able to be repaired using routine dental practices
People may choose to wear dentures for different motives. Some people may desire them because they want to eat the food they love again, while others wear them to feel more confident about their appearance. It is important for people who wear dentures to make sure they care for them correctly. Wearing dentures is a big responsibility, and they need to be cleaned after each meal, especially if the individual wearing them eats starchy food or something that could stick in crevices around the teeth. It is also important to talk to a dependable dentist about how often you should come into the dental office. Our dentists recommend that patients who wear dentures come in at least once every six months, and if more often for checkups or cleaning, they should come in as needed. Dentures usually last between three to five years, depending on the care given to them and how well the individual takes care of their mouth and teeth.
