First, let's talk about the fear of discomfort or pain. It's natural to worry about whether dentures will be uncomfortable, or if they will cause pain. The truth is, dentures can take some getting used to, and some people may experience some discomfort in the first few weeks or months of wearing them. However, this discomfort is usually temporary, and most people adjust to their dentures quickly.
If you do experience discomfort, talk to your dentist about what you're experiencing and they can help you find ways to make your dentures more comfortable. Additionally, today dentures are made with more advanced and comfortable materials than before, which is also a factor to consider. Check out our Fountain of Youth Dentures.
Another concern is the fear of dentures looking unnatural or fake. Today's dentures are designed to look as natural as possible and it is very difficult to distinguish them from real teeth.
You can also consult with your dentist or dental professional to choose a denture that will fit your face and look best, they can also help you decide the shape, size, and colour of the teeth to match your natural ones, to improve the aesthetic look.
This is a big and common concern, but modern dentures are designed to fit securely in the mouth and stay in place, especially those made with implant-supported dentures. Although, it is normal to have slight adjustments in the first few weeks as your mouth adapts to the new dentures.
In addition, it is also important to maintain good oral hygiene, to avoid infections and sore spots that can make dentures lose.
Dentures can be fragile, and some people worry about them breaking. While it's true that dentures can break if they're dropped or mishandled, they're also relatively durable and can withstand normal wear and tear. If you're concerned about breaking your dentures, take good care of them and handle them gently.
Yes, the process of getting dentures means it will cost you some money, but there are ways to make them more affordable. Many dental insurance plans cover at least a portion of the cost of dentures, and there are also financing options available.
It's also worth noting that dentures can be a long-term investment in your oral health, and can save you money in the long run by avoiding costly dental procedures in the future.
Dentures can also last around 5 to 7 years but in some cases, they may need to be replaced more frequently. This is something that you should consider when deciding whether or not to get dentures.
However, with proper care and maintenance, you can help extend the life of your dentures and make them last longer.
