signs you need dentures…
Most folks think that they don’t need dentures. However, according to a study conducted by Fixodent Beauty & Aging survey, 19% of our population require dentures and this percentage is to increase as Canadians grow older. Are you a candidate? Look for these signs!
The first culprit is not a regular visit to your dentist. You require a semi-annual visit because problems start “small” and early detection is key to preventing the loss of teeth.
If you have red gums or if they’re swollen, tender and/or bleeding, it’s a sure sign of inflammation. In fact, gum disease accounts for approximately 70% of all tooth loss. Hence the importance of regular visits to your dentist; early detection means prevention of loss.
If your teeth are loose, or shifting or gaps between teeth become wider, this may mean bone loss. Periodontal or gum disease is a silent killer so be aware. If you’re experiencing aches, it means decay that can be invasive and costly. Partial dentures may be the answer.
If you’ve lost 2 or 3 teeth, the pressure on remaining teeth is too great. It’s not just about your front teeth but more about when fewer of your teeth are working properly. This will pose heavier consequences as you age and your jaw continue to evolve!
These are merely a few signs that you need to visit your denturist. Drop by for a free consultation and I’ll be happy to answer all questions.
