What are the Cons to Dentures?

Posted on 4/26/2021 by Alexandra Garcia DDS MS
Those patients who have suffered extensive tooth loss whether through neglecting their oral hygiene and not practicing good oral care or through disease or trauma have a lot to deal with. They are faced with coming to grips with tooth loss and with coming to decision in regard to the treatment plan. One of the most frequently chosen solutions is also one of the most reasonably priced.

This can cause irritation due to rubbing the soft tissues of the gum or the interior lining of the cheek. Traditional dentures are held in place by an adhesive and patients have to have a tube of it with them wherever they go. It can be messy and usually needs to be applied multiple times throughout the day. Dentures are not a permanent solution.
