Retirement Doesn
Posted on 1/30/2020 by Jared Anderson, DDS
It used to be that when you retired, you knew it was time to get dentures. Nearly everyone who was in their 60s and 70s had dentures. There were a couple of reasons for this. First, adults did not live as long in the past as we do today. In the 1800s, the average lifespan of adults was around 50 years of age. At that point, you didn't have to worry about losing your teeth, you were focused on survival. We also didn't have great dental care in the past either. There were no fluoride treatments, or fluoride toothpaste. Today, adults could expect to live well into their 80s and 90s. Not sure if you'll need dentures or not? We have some answers. Will I Need Dentures? Researchers estimate that 30 million Americans have lost all of their teeth, and over 100 million Americans have lost at least one tooth. Most adults lose their teeth due to extreme tooth decay or gum disease. Tooth decay and gum disease are both caused by a bacterial infection in your mouth. If tooth decay and gum disease are caught early, we can treat them, and save your teeth. Gum disease in the early stages can be treated and cured. Later stages of gum disease mean that we can't cure the disease, but we can treat it, and save your teeth. We have to deep clean your teeth and gums. Tooth decay, if we catch it early, can be repaired. We can fill holes in the teeth caused by tooth decay. We can also repair infected teeth with root canals. Both tooth decay and gum disease can be stopped in their tracks if you practice good oral hygiene. If you brush and floss your teeth regularly and get dental checkups twice a year, you may never need dentures at all. If you have questions about dentures, why not give us a call?...
