One-Quarter Of Adults Are Candidates For Dentures
Did you know that around one quarter or adults over the age of 65 are missing all of their teeth? Dentures are a common and respectable solution to missing teeth. They are so dependable and natural-looking that you’ve probably spoken to someone with dentures and didn’t even know it. Do you think you might be a good candidate for dentures?
To be a good candidate for this restorative treatment you should:
- Wish to replace several or all of your teeth. There are alternative solutions available if you wish to replace just one or two teeth.
- Have a healthy jawbone. After you lose a tooth, your jawbone will slowly become thin and less able to support a denture-- especially an implant-supported denture.
- Be ready to take good care of your dentures at home and with routine cleanings and checkups!
