Signs You May Need Dentures
Visiting your Sandy family dentist is crucial to taking care of your oral health needs, and here at BeaverBrooke Dental, we will help extend the life of your teeth by correcting problems that arise. When oral health issues are small, they are more easily corrected, but if visiting the dentist every six months is not a regular part of your health routine or you haven’t been able to make an appointment for some reason, cavities and periodontal problems can take hold and teeth may need to be extracted. Tooth extraction can quickly snowball into the need for dentures.
You may also need dentures if you have gaps between your teeth or your teeth are loose and shifting. Loose teeth are often a sign of advanced gum disease and these teeth may have to be extracted — leading to the need for dentures.
Another sign that you may need dentures is struggling with eating certain types of food. If you are having challenges eating food, this can also lead to indigestion problems, as larger pieces of food that haven’t been properly chewed can be hard on your digestive system. A good family dentist, like those here at BeaverBrooke Dental in Sandy, can help determine if problem teeth are the root cause and whether dentures can help. Schedule an appointment today.
