If you are struggling with problems with your teeth, it can be so extensive that you don’t want to smile. You don’t want anyone to see what is hiding inside your mouth. You may have serious decay. There could be gaps from teeth that are missing. It is extremely discouraging when your teeth get to the point that they are so damaged. Pain is common as well when you are struggling with decay, keeping you from eating what you love. You may be a good candidate for dentures.
When are Dentures the Right Choice?
Dentures are typically recommended when you are missing a large amount of your teeth. Otherwise, you could benefit from a dental implant to replace one missing tooth or a bridge to replace several missing teeth. If most of your teeth are already gone or you have many damaged teeth that can’t be saved, full dentures are a practical solution. However, it is important for you to understand that you need to have healthy gums and enough jawbone to support dentures.
You Don’t Have to Deal with Missing and Damaged Teeth
When your teeth are badly damaged from decay, cracks, and breaks, it can be so discouraging to look at them in the mirror and photos. Worse yet, you can be in serious discomfort with diseased teeth. Missing teeth are frustrating as well. You don’t have that beautiful set of teeth that you envy from others. It can be hard to eat all of the foods you like. You might not get the nutrition that you need. You need to consider your dental options.
