How to know if you need dentures


This is one of the most frequently asked questions as I said in the beginning. The first thing to take in mind is the status of your teeth and your age. Having bad teeth does not mean that they should be extracted and be replaced by a denture or any dental procedure. That can be an expensive choice and you could be making better choices for your dental health. If your teeth are healthy enough, you won’t need dentures at all, but to know this you need an evaluation or consultation before making any decision.


You can get one FREE by scheduling an appointment with Dental del Rio. After the evaluation is done we will present to you some estimates and options based on your budget. But if the state of your teeth is not good, then your teeth have to be extracted. There is a chance that a full denture will be necessary. In case you have some healthy teeth remaining then  a partial denture will be enough.


There are many materials for your denture but the one I suggest is full porcelain. It looks like natural teeth, feel better and it is easier to clean. It imitates the look and feel of natural teeth, so you will feel just like nothing happened. If you are in a tight budget, acrylic dentures will do the job just fine. Just remember to brush them daily and take good care of them so they last long enough.

How to clean of your dentures


If you chose dentures then you should know how to clean of properly. First I have to say that it is very important that they are well made, they have to fit perfectly. Over time dentures tend to deform and they will start to fall off, it is in your power to avoid this. That is why I am very insistent to clean them daily, so they do not lose their form and stain easily. Remember to dry them well after cleaning them to avoid bacteria and germs.


Use them properly by not using your dentures to bite into hard stuff. If you want to get used to them quickly, use them every day, as much as you can. Many patients ask me how about that a lot too and the only advice I can give them is that practice makes perfect. Read out loud, sing, speak and eat, using them daily. You will get the hang of it very quickly and it will not take you long. The key here is to be consistent and patience.

Other options for replacing missing teeth besides dentures

Dentures are not the only choice for tooth replacement. You have a several options at your disposal and the perfect one will depend of each case. Some patients will benefit form a dental bridge more than others, for sure. That is why it is so important to visit your dentist every 6 months for checkups, it will save you time and money to take the best choice for you. This will help you understand that there are dental treatments and procedure that will be objectively better than others.


One clear example of that statement are dental implants, which are getting wildly popular lately. I am not surprised at all as they offer a permanent solution to missing teeth. It does not matter if you wish to replace a single tooth or all teeth in your mouth, implants can solve it. They may be quite expensive, but they worth every single dime.
