Signs you might need dentures
- Posted on: Sep 30 2021
As the years pass, dental care needs to change for adult patients. Certain conditions, such as tooth loss, may become more common and require additional assistance from a quality dental team. Drs. Piyuse Das, An Pham, and Grisel Acevedo Rivera of Clear Lake Dental Care and Implant Center of Webster, TX work directly with patients to help them achieve their oral health goals. For many, this means recommending tooth replacement options such as dentures.
What are dentures?
Dentures are one way of replacing missing teeth from the smile. These restorations may include partial dentures, full dentures, or implant-supported dentures. Removable dentures can be a great option for many patients who need to replace one, several, or all the teeth in the dental arch, and may be an affordable choice for those on a budget.
What are signs that I may need to consider dentures?
Dentures are just one of several tooth replacement options available at Clear Lake Dental Care and Implant Center. We also provide dental bridges and dental implants, other solutions that may be chosen as well. Determining if a patient is a potential candidate for denture is the first step in deciding how to proceed.
Below are a few signs that a patient might need to consider dentures for replacing teeth:
- They are missing one or more teeth within the smile
- They have experienced severe damage to one or more teeth in the dental arch that requires extraction
- They cannot afford more permanent options such as dental implants
- They do not have enough bone to place implants, or adjacent teeth to place bridges
- They are seeking a removable solution that requires minimal care and attention
