3 Signs It Might Be Time for Dentures for Litchfield Park, AZ, Residents

It’s vital for everyone to recognize the signs indicating it’s time to consider dentures. Knowing what to look out for can be the difference between prolonged discomfort and a radiant, confident smile. At all three of our Burns Dentistry locations, including one in Litchfield Park, Arizona, we’re ready to help you figure out if dentures are right for you.

What Are Dentures?

Dentures are prosthetic devices constructed to replace missing teeth, and they are supported by the surrounding soft and hard tissues of the mouth. They may be necessary if you have any of the following conditions:

1. Gum Disease

If your gums are constantly red, swollen, or bleeding, it might be more than just a minor issue. Advanced gum disease can result in tooth loss, which may lead to the need for dental dentures.

2. Severe Tooth Decay

Constant pain or sensitivity in your teeth? Tooth dentures might be in your future. When teeth suffer from severe decay that fillings and crowns can’t salvage, it’s often best to replace them with false teeth.

3. Speech Difficulties

Struggling to pronounce certain words? Missing teeth can hamper clear speech, sometimes to the point where you may not be understood when you talk. Dentures may be able to help.

This was the first dental office that ever gave me a tour of there office which I thought was pretty neat. Office is really nice and clean. Dr. Holtan was very nice and friendly and loved how he took his time on explaining everything to me. So extremely grateful and highly recommend Burns Dentistry.”
