Why Dentures Are Preferred by Seniors and Their Caregivers
With people losing an adult tooth, dentures are an excellent replacement option. In the past, it was common for people to lose all of their teeth with age. For centuries, there was always some variation of replacement teeth but they were not very comfortable. Fortunately, modern dental technology provides multiple options that are comfortable to wear and look fantastic.
Our dental office has experience in helping seniors and adults of all ages keep their teeth and gums in good oral health. Ensuring that the patient has high levels of oral health is the first step to ensuring that complete tooth loss will never happen. Even patients that damage their tooth or have an oral infection may be able to save the tooth with restorative dentistry solutions like dental veneers or crowns.
Unfortunately, there are times where restoring teeth is simply not an option, and they end up needing to be replaced. In this scenario, seniors often prefer dentures over modern cosmetic dentistry solutions. Here are some of the reasons why:
Dentures look great
A cosmetic dentist can make them look like beautiful natural teeth that fit perfectly. Now, it is difficult to tell when someone is wearing replacement teeth or not.
They are a quick fix.
Many cosmetic dentistry solutions can take time to complete. For example, dental implants can take several months to a year to complete, depending on how many teeth are being implanted. This is not a problem with dentures as we can have a dental lab create them in a matter of weeks.
Expert dentists can create the perfect fit that is comfortable and easy to wear. This eliminates concerns of them rubbing against the gums or feeling out of place.
Easy to care for
Seniors with additional health issues, memory loss, or finding themselves in need of caregiver assistance, may discover that dentures are easier to care for than natural teeth. Instead of needing to brush and floss them throughout the day like natural teeth, patients can remove dentures at night and clean fairly quickly. Sometimes, shortening the daily hygiene routine can make a positive difference in one's schedule.
Variety of options
Full sets used to be the primary solution for replacing teeth, but people did not always need to have their teeth replaced. Partial dentures are an ideal solution as they can replace one or several teeth in a natural and comfortable way. They are typically secured to the surrounding teeth and can be removed for cleaning as needed.
There are several types of dentures, and they come at different price points. This makes them affordable for seniors in all income brackets. We provide patients with the options they need to select the right set of dentures that is affordable and looks great.
