Get Back What You’ve Been Missing With Dentures


Periodontitis, tooth decay, and even an oral injury can significantly harm your smile. For some patients, the damage leads to extensive tooth loss. And that means dentures or dental implants are necessary to restore what’s missing. In this article, your dentist in Ridgecrest at The Dentist House highlights dentures and their benefits.

What are dentures?

Dentures first became a tooth loss solution way back in 7th century BC. They were constructed from animal and human teeth – far less advanced materials than what we have today. Nowadays, most dentures are comprised of resin or porcelain. They look just like natural teeth; if appropriately fitted, no one will be able to tell you’re wearing a dental prosthesis at all.

Top benefits of dentures:

  • They can plump out facial wrinkles.
  • They will give you a more youthful appearance.
  • You will be able to eat your favorite foods and speak clearly and confidently.

A few tooth loss and dentures statistics

  • Tooth loss can be caused by decay, cancer, injury, gum disease, or wear.
  • More than 36 million Americans don’t have any teeth.
  • 90% of people without any teeth wear dentures.

Looking after your dentures

After getting upper and lower dentures, we encourage patients to see us annually for a checkup. Why’s this important? So we can inspect your oral health and at-home hygiene routine. Natural teeth stimulate your jawbones, but dentures don’t. As a result, your jawbones will recede over the years. Routine visits allow us to monitor these changes and address them. No one wants to experience loose dentures.
