WHAT IS WRONG WITH HAVING DENTURES?

Dentures are never part of your body and will never feel, work or look like your real teeth. Dentures are made of acrylic that sits over your gums and covers the roof of your mouth, essentially directing all the pressure of chewing onto your soft tissues. Dentures also need to be brushed daily, the teeth stain and chip over time, and the acrylic can break. Over time patients experience painful sores and ulcerations, decreased ability to taste food, less force to chew food, and bone loss. Bone loss is a direct result of extracting teeth and then using your bone to chew over the years. Any area of the mouth where a tooth is pulled is expected to shrink and reduce in size eventually even preventing a denture to be retained over it. If dentures are the only option the only way for a patient to achieve some of its former function is by placing implants and fabricate an implant-retained denture.
