You know, it doesn’t have to be the end of the world just because you have lost a tooth or in fact, all of them. Yes it will be a shock at first, but then you have to find a way of replacing them. Dentures have often been scorned at over the years, and there is a degree of justification in that: they always looked as though no thought at all had gone into their design, as well as having no sympathy towards the person that had to wear them. Today it’s a very different story: a lot of thought and effort has gone into the design and are very sympathetic to the wearer. Modern dentures are manufactured out of softer rubbers that mould themselves to the mouth, even if the gums shrink over time. Cements have got stronger, and hold them in as if the were super-glued. Implants combined with a set of dentures secure them against the gums and give an immense amount of security and freedom to the wearer that was never available to past generations. There has also been a large rise in the amount of people opting for partial dentures because of the amount of work put into the study of gum disease and the treatment of it, and people prefer partials over say, dental bridges and implants; they are easy to manage on a daily basis, simple to wear and also, very cheap in comparison.
