If you’re concerned about whether you need false teeth, don’t fret: the Designing Smiles PSC team and Dr. Dennis Jenkins have assembled this data for you. Read on and tell us about it if you have any further inquiries during your next checkup.

To diagnose whether you might need dentures. Dr. Dennis Jenkins will check the current health of your mouth. If they find that you are missing an excessive number of chompers or that your remaining teeth are mostly in poor shape, they might endorse that you deliberate on partial or complete dentures. If you are only missing a couple of chompers and the pearly whites you do have are in awesome shape, they may recommend an oral bridge to replace the missing pearly whites instead of false teeth.

The primary need for false teeth develops from a shortage of healthy pearly whites. This can be caused by periodontal disease, cavities or many other dental disorders. Grinding and pressing on pearly whites related to conditions such as temporomandibular joint disorder can also cause tooth loss. Oral trauma, facial damage, pregnancy, malnutrition and drug use can also result in tooth loss. Whenever a tooth is missing, dentures might be a choice.
