These dental fixes do more than just help you to look good, though. Our teeth have a formative effect on our overall health. Without them, you will begin to lose jaw density, have nutritional problems, and eventually have trouble speaking.
Dentures support your facial muscles, which prevents the “sunken jaw” look common in many toothless people. You can eat and speak normally, allowing you to have regular dinner conversations and an active social life.
Common Concerns About Dentures
If you aren’t sure that dentures are the right fit for you, you can schedule an appointment and talk to Dr. Josh about your concerns.
It’s normal to be worried about how they’ll feel, but today’s technology makes dentures a seamless part of your day. They’re designed to be so comfortable, you forget you have them.
As long as you take care of them like you’ll be instructed and avoid certain foods, they’ll stay durable and functional like your natural teeth were.
In some cases, dentures might not be the best solution for you. There are other options that Dr. Josh could recommend, such as implants and bridges. Even better, the teeth you thought were decayed beyond repair might be fixable! When you come in for your exam, Dr. Josh will let you know if there are other options that would work for you before dentures are needed.
Price is also a common question. Our staff are knowledgeable in dental insurances and what is and isn’t covered. Many insurances today cover dentures because of the health conditions they prevent.
