Debunking 5 Myths About Dentures – Luke, Caloundra Dentist

August 5, 2018 in Dental Tips

Many people may have lost a tooth or two already and are thinking about getting some dentures. However, what’s stopping them from getting false teeth are all the false beliefs around it. In fact, there are countless myths and misinformation about dentures that stop people like you from getting the dental treatment and appliance that you most probably need.

Let’s take a look at some of the 5 most common myths about dentures—and let’s debunk them.

  • Myth 1: Only old people wear dentures. People lose teeth for a variety of reasons at any age. Aside from gum disease and tooth decay, other diseases such as bulimia, anorexia and diabetes can cause tooth loss. Many young people get dentures and you probably just don’t know it because their dentures look natural and beautiful.
  • Myth 2: You have to watch what you eat. People say that when you get dentures, you can’t eat hard and sticky food, but when your dentures fit properly and snugly, you can pretty much eat anything.

  • Myth 3: Dentures are inconvenient. Having the right dentures fitted by your trusted dentist should not be painful or uncomfortable. While you naturally have to adjust to them when you first get them, you will eventually get used to your dentures and not even think that they’re there.
  • Myth 4: I don’t need to worry about dental hygiene since I no longer have teeth. You still have to regularly visit your dentist to check on your dentures. You also have to still clean your gums and tongue to keep them healthy.
  • Myth 5: It’s going to be obvious that I have dentures. Thanks to new technology in dentistry, dentures today look—and feel—impeccably realistic. With proper care, no one is going to notice your pearly whites are all dentures.
