When Are Dentures Appropriate?

mature couple kitchen tableYou know you need some sort of dental treatment, but with so many options, you’re unsure which is right for your needs.

Sound familiar?

At Port Kennedy Central Dental Care, we’re proud to offer dentures for patients looking to revitalise their smile to what it once was. In fact, we even have an on-site dental prosthetist to help you fully understand the process and offer free consultations.

So, how do you know if they’re right for you? Dentures may be ideal under any of the following circumstances:

1. You’re missing multiple teeth. While replacing just one or two teeth may be ideal with implants, dentures are often best for patients who need multiple or full teeth replacement.

2. You have advanced gum disease and shifting teeth. Depending on the severity, sometimes getting ahead of pricey periodontal work means choosing dentures straightaway and extracting your teeth before they get worse.

3. You struggle eating foods you love. This is often a result of cracked or missing teeth, as well as cavities or even gum disease. Dentures act and function as your real teeth, allowing you to enjoy the foods and treats that you enjoy without the associated pain or indigestion from improper chewing.
