Whether it’s your heart, an arm, a leg, or your teeth, if you have an issue, there are generally warning signs before the situation grows serious. Teeth are an important part of your overall health and well-being, which means you need to know the signs that suggest you may need dentures. 

7 Reasons Someone Might Need Dentures 

If you experience any of the seven signs below, it may be an indication that you need dentures. At the very least, you should make an appointment with a denture clinic to discuss the process. 

  1.     Loose Teeth

If you have gaps appearing between your teeth where they weren’t before or your teeth are loose, this could be a sign of gum disease. Gum diseases can cause bone loss in your jaw, and when this is severe, you may need your teeth extracted and replaced with dentures. 

  1.     Missing Teeth

If you have missing teeth, you should consider partial dentures, which can relieve the pressure on your remaining natural teeth. When a tooth, or several, is missing it can contribute to the loss of other teeth. Every tooth has its own task within your mouth, and missing teeth force other teeth to do their jobs which can lead to jawline sagging and more tooth loss. 

  1.     Swollen Gums

If your gums are bleeding, tender, red, and swollen, you may have gum disease. These are common signs of gingivitis. Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss, especially if it is left untreated. 

  1.     Difficulty Eating

If you find it difficult or painful to eat chewy or hard foods, you may have cavities or cracks in a tooth. If you act early, you may be able to save your teeth. But if it’s a long-term issue, it may require dentures. 

  1.     Indigestion

Having difficulty chewing can result in indigestion as unchewed food passes into your stomach. Your body struggles to break it down, which contributes to an indigestion problem. 

  1.     Toothaches

If you have a constant toothache, you may be dealing with a tooth (or teeth) that has decayed so badly that your nerve centre is affected. If this is caught early, a filling or root canal may save the tooth. However, if it is in an advanced stage, your dental prosthetist may discuss denture costs with you as this might be your only option. 

  1.     A Lack of Regular Dental Checkups

You should visit the dentist at least once a year, though some people should visit every six months. If you don’t have regular dental checkups it can cause complications with your oral health. 

Denture Options Available 

Flexible partial dentures are a great way to brighten your smile, and the perfect temporary, budget-friendly fix. Removable partial dentures are the ideal solution if you only have a few to replace. Whereas, implant-supported dentures are a natural option that sees the dentures implanted directly into the jawbone. Immediate dentures are stop-gap dentures you wear immediately after having teeth extracted. It gives your mouth time to heal before your final denture is fitted. We also offer meticulously crafted digital dentures, and of course, there is the traditional complete denture. 

What To Look For When Choosing a Denture Clinic 

  •       Reviews

It’s always wise to check online reviews or speak to friends who may have visited the clinic you’re considering. 

  •       Cleanliness

When you visit a clinic, you should find a friendly team of staff in a meticulously clean environment. 

  •       Credentials

Are the clinicians trained and qualified?

From my first phone call to Tomika explaining my situation with my teeth and how bad they were and that I didn't know where to start, to having my first free appointment with Elias was the best thing I have ever done. Tomika is very easy to talk to, friendly and professional. Elias, well he is great, told me exactly what he could achieve, the cost and the timeframe and he was spot on. Read more

Elias prepared a full set of dentures for my 90 year old mother. The service he provided was exceptional, using current technology effectively to create a set of dentures which were far superior to what she had previously had. Elias also made it very clear that my mother could go back at any time if minor adjustments were required. He gives meticulous attention to detail. Tamika ensures that appointments run to time.

State of the art technology and skills and ability to match. I went to the clinic highly anxious ( my previous dental encounter at another clinic resulted in a panic attack and blacking out twice whilst in the chair) due to the poor integrity of my teeth, as a direct result of a health condition I had lost the majority of my teeth and the remaining were nothing short of a train wreck. Elias treated me the utmost respect and kindness. Read more

A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth. At Aesthetic Dental and Denture Clinic, we offer two types of denture, complete and partial. Complete dentures are necessary when all your natural teeth are missing. A partial denture is used when some natural teeth remain. If you are having extractions, we can also provide you with an immediate denture. This is often an interim denture so you can avoid the embarrassment of being without teeth.

A denture usually lasts between five and seven years. Time and natural changes in the mouth will affect the fit and wear patterns of your denture. If your denture is worn and doesn’t fit as well as it used to, it may require a repair or reline. Having your denture checked every two years will help to ensure a proper fit and by following your denture care instructions, you’ll extend the life of your replacement teeth. 

Dentures don’t last forever. Dentures usually last between 5 to 7 years and need to be relined every 1 to 2 years. Over time dentures become worn and don’t fit as well, so it’s important to reline them regularly. The better you follow your denture care instructions, the longer your replacement teeth will last. 

It is advised that you visit your dentist every 6 months for a check-up and clean. This will help to prevent any major oral health issues from occurring. However, if you have bad breath, bleeding gums, discoloured teeth, cracked or chipped teeth, tooth or jaw pain it is advised to make an appointment with your dentist as soon as possible.

At Aesthetic Dental and Denture Clinic, we know attending the dentist can be difficult for nervous and anxious patients. We offer a number of options to help make your next visit as calm and stress-free as possible. Contact us today and a friendly dental technician will be able to give you all the options available.
