Dentures: Types, Alternative, and Caring

Dentures are oral appliances that are used to replace missing teeth and can be either full or partial. Additionally, implant-supported dentures are another option that can provide additional stability and support. With proper care and maintenance, the average lifespan of a denture is typically seven to 10 years.

What Is the Truth About the Loss of Tooth?

When I hear the phrase tooth loss, I immediately think of dental hygiene and the importance of taking care of our teeth. Poor dental hygiene can lead to tooth decay, gum disease, and tooth loss. I am also aware that there are other factors that can contribute to tooth loss such as genetics, trauma, and certain medical conditions. It is fascinating to learn that older Americans are keeping their teeth longer, which is a positive trend for overall dental health, according to a 2016 study.

Can a Person Have Dental Implants if They Have Dentures?

If you have missing teeth, there are several options available to you, including dentures and implants. The choice of treatment depends on various factors, such as your budget, personal preference, and the overall health of your jawbone and remaining teeth. Dentures are removable prosthetic devices that replace missing teeth and surrounding tissues. They are typically less expensive than implants and can be a good option for people who have a limited budget.
