Before You Get Dentures, Know Your Alternatives

Get a second opinion when your dentist recommends dentures. There are viable alternatives available.

If your dentist recently recommended dentures, it is a good idea to have a second opinion. There comes a time in life when we all start losing teeth, but it is important to know that dental technology has come a long way in recent years and traditional dentures are not the only option.

Many people dread the thought of having dentures, and for good reasons. First off, they require dramatic changes in your lifestyle, especially considering you will no longer be able to eat certain foods. Caring for dentures is also more involved because they must be removed and cleaned. Another downside with dentures is that they are prone to falling out, which can be more than a little embarrassing.

Dr. Megan Peterson Boyle is a cosmetic dentist at Dental Studio 101 in Scottsdale, Arizona. She says the first thing you should do when your dentist recommends dentures, is to get a second opinion form a reputable cosmetic dentistry practice.

“It’s important to think about your quality of life as well as the appearance of your teeth,” Dr. Peterson Boyle says. “Schedule a consultation with a cosmetic dentist to learn what other options are available.”

One of the most popular alternatives is what are called all-on-4 implants. With this process, a set of upper or lower dentures are fixed to four implants. This permanently secures the dentures. They never have to be removed and caring for all-on-4 implants is no different than caring for natural teeth. Simply brush regularly and show up for your scheduled checkups.

Individual implants are also a great alternative. If you don’t need to have all your teeth removed, dental implants can replace only the teeth that need to be removed.

Anyone who is serious about finding alternatives to dentures should not hesitate to schedule an appointment and explore their options.
