When do you need to consider getting dentures?

Many people believe that dentures are only for older people who have lost their natural teeth. Contrary to this popular misconception, you may need dentures as early as your teenage years. Here are some of the most common reasons why you may need dentures:

  • You have been involved in an accident – Losing one or more of your teeth could result from a car accident, sporting accident, or another injurious event.
  • You are suffering from dental condition – Severe periodontal disease, or the inflammation of the gap between the gums and the teeth, could necessitate dentures
  • You don’t want to lose your remaining natural teeth – A lost tooth may cause the other teeth to shift. Losing a couple of teeth may also cause you to become more prone to gum diseases. As such, you may want to get partial dentures for the maintenance of your remaining teeth
