Why Do I Need to See a Dentist If I Wear Dentures?
- Oral Health Check-up: Regular dental check-ups allow your dentist to examine your oral tissues, gums, and remaining teeth (if any) for any signs of disease, infection, or oral cancer. These routine examinations can help detect early-stage issues that may not be noticeable to you.
- Denture Assessment: Dentures can wear down, become ill-fitting, or develop small cracks or fractures over time. Regular dental visits enable your dentist to assess the condition of your dentures and make any necessary adjustments or repairs to ensure they continue to fit properly and function optimally.
- Gum Health: Denture wearers are still susceptible to gum disease. Your dentist will examine your gums for any signs of inflammation, infection, or changes in tissue health. They can provide guidance on proper denture care, including cleaning techniques and the use of denture adhesives, to maintain healthy gum tissues.
- Jawbone Health: Wearing dentures can lead to gradual bone loss in the jaw over time. Regular dental visits allow your dentist to monitor the health of your jawbone and provide preventive measures or treatment options to mitigate bone loss if necessary.
- Oral Hygiene: Even though you have dentures, maintaining good oral hygiene is crucial. Your dentist can offer guidance on proper denture cleaning techniques, recommend specific oral hygiene products, and provide tips for maintaining a clean and healthy mouth.
- Denture Relining or Replacement: Over time, changes in your jawbone structure or oral tissues may cause your dentures to become loose or uncomfortable. Regular dental visits allow your dentist to assess the fit of your dentures and recommend relining or replacement when needed to ensure a comfortable and secure fit.
- Overall Oral Health: While dentures replace missing teeth, they do not provide the same level of function and support as natural teeth. Regular dental visits allow your dentist to monitor your overall oral health and address any concerns or issues you may have, helping to maintain your overall well-being.
