Tooth loss leads to any number of difficulties that might lead you to need dentures. The first problem you’ll notice when you begin to lose teeth is that you will need to forego all kinds of foods. Crunchy vegetables, steak, apples, and so on will be off the menu. Then, as teeth begin to disappear in the front, you will probably become reluctant to smile. And finally, your remaining teeth will begin to shift in a futile attempt to fill in the gaps.
If all this sounds bad, it is. The good news, though, is that you can get your smile and functionality back in any number of ways: implants, bridges and, yes, dentures.
But Dentures Slip!
This is actually a misconception. Your grandparents’ dentures probably slipped and slid, and maybe your parents’ dentures did, too. Today, though, dentistry has advanced to the point where you can have a set of dentures that will fit very well, with no slipping and sliding.
