3 Myths About Dentures Debunked

3 Myths About Dentures Debunked | Clear Lake Dental CareDentures have been given a bad rap for decades— being the brunt of many jokes surrounding the elderly. And although dentures come with some issues that are undeniable, they have come a long way. To help you decide if dentures are for you or if you should go another route, we have created an article debunking three common myths. Read on to learn more.

Myth #1: You Can’t Chew With Them In

One of the biggest misconceptions that patients have about dentures is that you can’t chew with them in. However, that simply isn’t the case. As long as your dentures fit your mouth properly, you should be able to enjoy anything from an apple to steak without having to worry about them falling out.

Myth #2: They Look Fake

As long as you are getting your dentures done by a professional office like Clear Lake Dental Care, you can rest assured that they won’t look fake. Although dentures won’t necessarily resemble natural teeth, they will look natural enough that people will be able to tell. Additionally, dentures come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors so you can try to match them to your previous teeth for a more natural look.

Myth #3: They Are Maintenance Free

Even though your dentures are made up of an artificial material, they still need to be cared for. In fact, we encourage all of our denture patients to continue to brush their dentures after every meal and to soak them in a clean denture solution every night before bed. Remember that the cleaner your dentures are, the longer they will last.

Dentures are a great way to replace missing teeth and restore your mouth’s functionality. If you have several missing teeth or if you need to have teeth pulled, you may want to consider getting dentures.
