Dr. Dresen’s denture offices Cottage Grove see a lot of people who need dentures. What are some of the reasons you might need dentures?
For starters, if you’re the type of person who avoids the dentist and doesn’t visit at least yearly, chances are little problems can turn into big problems without proper intervention. It’s better to visit the denture offices Cottage Grove twice a year so Dr. Dresen and staff can correct small problems before they get out of hand. Without proper dental care, cavities and periodontal problems can lead to teeth extractions which can then lead to the need for dentures.
Next, if you have chronic gum inflammation, you might need dentures. Gingivitis and periodontal disease can lead to tooth loss, and both are, unfortunately, very common in adults. Left untreated, gum problems can equal bone loss, which leads to teeth loss. If you don’t have many original teeth left in your mouth, guess what? You’ll probably need (or want) dentures.
Do you have any loose teeth or are you experiencing severe pain coming from a tooth lately? If so, you should have Dr. Dresen’s denture offices Cottage Grove tend to these problems before they get worse. With proper periodontal treatment and/or filling cavities, dentists can help slow or stop teeth problems.
Dentures are pretty much a “last resort” solution for people who seek aesthetic and functional results. As people age, if they don’t take good care of their teeth, they’re likely to need dentures in order to smile, talk and chew food.
Have you been dealing with stomach aches or indigestion? If you can’t chew properly because you’ve lost several teeth, you could be swallowing bigger pieces of food to the point where your stomach is having a hard time. Therefore, your teeth (or lack thereof) could be causing your stomach aches, so you might consider dentures.
Finally, the main reason people visit Dr. Dresen’s denture offices Cottage Grove is vanity. Dentures help make a person’s smile look good– better to have a full set of front teeth than to have several teeth missing, right?
