It May Be Time for You to Get Dentures | Walnut Creek Dentist

denturesWhether we like it or not, we all have to age. And whether you have taken great care of your teeth or not, there may come a time when you would like to improve upon your smile. Sometimes that means getting a set of dentures. Now, the only one who can really tell if it’s time for you to get dentures is your dentist, and they can only tell by giving you a thorough examination of your teeth and mouth. If you feel that you may need to be fitted for some dentures, make a dental appointment for a quick check-up.

The following are some signs that you are a good candidate for dentures:

Severe tooth decay. If your teeth are decayed beyond repair, then they will need to be pulled. If it’s only a few teeth, a bridge can be used. If a majority of the teeth are decayed or missing, a full denture would be needed.

Physical injury. People with sports injuries or accidents which lead to tooth loss.

Periodontal disease. If teeth and gums are left untreated, periodontal disease can lead to tooth loss.

If dentures are suggested, you’ll be pleased to know that there are several denture options available. Thanks to the modern advancements in technology, dentures are not what they used to be. There are several options available from different shapes, sizes, colors and the new implant supported dentures. They are custom-fitted to give you the smile you have always wanted, and no one will have to know you are wearing dentures.
