Misconceptions About Denturesmisconceptions about dentures

Those who are missing several teeth, or even all their teeth, tend to seek out some type of restorative dentistry treatment that can help. While there are many options, one of the best is often dentures. Of course, many people bristle at the word dentures because they still have several misconceptions about them. You should not let these myths deter you from getting the help you need. It is time to learn the truth.

Dentures Fall Out

Some people believe that dentures will often fall out when they are talking or chewing, which can be frustrating and lead to embarrassing situations. However, when you have professional personalized dentures, you will find that they fit your gums. They will stay in place, so you do not have to worry about them falling out. Over time, as your gums shrink, you may need to have your dentures refitted.

Dentures Mean No More Dentist

Some people get dentures and think they will never have to visit the dentist again. However, even when you have full dentures, that’s not the case. You will still want to visit the dentist to make sure that your gums are healthy and that you do not have any issues with the dentures.

Dentures Have Aesthetic Issues

Another one of the misconceptions is that dentures will not be attractive and that they will cause issues, such as clicking or squeaking. Some believe they will develop an unpleasant scent, as well. As long as you clean the dentures and follow the guidelines from the dentures dentist, you will not have any of these issues.

I love having a beautiful smile. I think instead of cosmetic dentistry, it should be referred to as “Confidence Dentistry.” When you feel confident with your smile it affects the way you interact with people.” As a former Miss Kansas and TV news anchor, I know with certainty my “Confidence Smile” smile made all the difference. There isn’t a day that goes by that I’m not happy that I have beautiful teeth.”
