The Mental, Physical and Monetary Costs of Loose Dentures
Traditional loose dentures are very costly, they are costly to your pocketbook, your self confidence and to your body. People are too willing to allow severe damage to their bodies and self in order to save perceived monetary cost. What they may not realize is that the cost of traditional loose dentures can be quite high.
|Self Esteem:A reduction of self esteem is a common problem in patients who wear dentures. From worrying about dentures coming loose, clicking when they speak, or becoming painful as they rock back and forth, patients have reported socially pulling back after they receive their denture appliance.
|Physical Changes:Without the root connection between your teeth and jawbone, the patient will see a swift change of appearance in their facial appearance. The bone will pull in, reducing in size, and give patients the sunken, smaller appearance that we commonly associate with old age.
|Monetary Costs:Getting your removable dentures is the just the initial cost. Patients will be required to schedule frequent dental visits for adjustments as their jawbone naturally decreases in size from bone loss. They will also need to purchase adhesives, cleaners, and solutions for their denture device. If a denture is lost, new dentures will need to be purchased.
The most frustrating part of all of these costs associate with traditional dentures is the fact that they were never a good solution to begin with. Traditional loose dentures only provide the most minimal ability to chew, and are known for their discomfort.
