When should I consider dentures?
If you are missing all or most of your natural teeth and are concerned about the appearance of your smile, dentures may be one of the better treatment options available to you.
Deciding if and when to get dentures is a personal choice, but there are a few parameters that can be helpful to consider during the decision-making process. If you are experiencing one or more of the following, it may be time to consider dentures:
- Severe Pain in Remaining Teeth: If you have natural teeth in your mouth that are causing you significant pain, this is likely a sign of severe decay indicating the tooth or teeth will need to be extracted — which can make dentures a wonderful alternative.
- Shifting or Mobility of Remaining Teeth: Bone loss in the jaw can lead to the shifting or movement of natural adult teeth. If you are experiencing mobility problems with your remaining teeth, talk to our Orangeburg team about how dentures can help.
- Painful or Difficult Chewing: When the quality of your natural teeth declines, your mouth has to work harder to chew and process the foods you eat — often leading to sensations of pain, irritation, and even indigestion. Dentures can help alleviate the pressure previously placed on natural teeth, allowing you to enjoy food again.
