When Your Dentist Recommends Dentures
When your dentist recommends dentures, it means that your natural teeth no longer have the ability to function as teeth. Something needs to happen to replace them, or you walk around in nothing but your gums, unable to chew, speak, or smile. If you’ve never heard your other options, you might think dentures are the way to go! They sound pretty good, after all. We have a better idea for you, though. When your dentist recommends dentures, it’s time to call New Albany Implants.
Dentures are a last resort restoration, meaning they shouldn’t be an option until all other methods have been exhausted! Dentures are uncomfortable, they make chewing difficult which limits your nutrition, and they take away your confidence. We don’t think the dentures option sounds good for anyone, least of all you. Don’t take the dentures recommendation until you’ve heard ALL of your options.
Hearing Your Options
After you’ve heard your options, you might still pick dentures, and that’s your choice. The important question is: have you heard ALL of your options? One visit at New Albany Implants, and we will examine you, take images, and consult with you to explain all of your restoration choices. That’s all in your first visit. Once you’ve been presented with your choices, then you can make an empowered choice about what is best for you.
You see, we are partial to our way of dentistry, and we think it’s the best fit for most people, but you might not agree, and that’s okay! Our number one goal is to make sure you have a choice, because some patients only hear one solution: dentures, and that’s not fair to anyone.
