Is It Time to Get Dentures?
A lot of people avoid the idea of getting dentures, thinking that they don’t need one because they take proper care of their teeth. You are not alone in this situation. But the reality is that there are quite a number of women over 40, 20 million approximately, who already wear full or partial dentures.
Although your chances of having to get dentures are not inevitable, especially if you practice good home dental care and visit your dentist regularly, it is essential to know if you’re likely to get one in the future.
- You are not fond of the dentist.
To maintain good dental health, it is recommended to have dental checkups every six months. This is to prevent any dental problems or treat them while they are still minor.
- You have red, swollen, bleeding, or tender gums.
These symptoms indicate gum inflammation, which is an early stage of gingivitis. However, it can lead into more serious periodontal diseases and make you lose your teeth.
- You have loose or shifting teeth or have gaps in between them.
This could be an indication of bone loss from gum disease – and it’s called a “silent killer” for a reason. This could need extensive periodontal treatment and require tooth extraction.
