Install Dentures Even Though They Have Been Toothless For Years.?
r n r nHello, I plan to attach dentures to my parents because most of the upper teeth have come off. Can I still attach dentures even though they have been toothless for years?
Good afternoon, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Teeth are an important component for someone, both in terms of aesthetics or appearance, from communication in the form of articulation and ease of speech, and to facilitate the process of eating. Teeth function to tear, cut and smooth food so it is more easily swallowed and digested by the body.
So indeed, if someone experiences toothlessness, or tooth loss, either because of collisions, accidents, age, or other reasons, there are many activities that are disrupted daily. For this reason, the recommended advice is regarding dentures, implants / implantation of teeth or bridges, provided that there are still teeth on the left and right of the toothless area.
Regarding your question, indeed the installation of false teeth does not have to be close to the time the teeth are dated. You can attach dentures or dental implants even though the original teeth were dated decades ago. But what you need to understand is that before deciding, your parents should do a dental check-up first. Your dentist will assess the condition of your parents and convey the best treatment options, whether using dentures, implants or bridges based on the conditions. Do not ask for treatment, installation or purchase equipment from something other than a dentist. So, hopefully answering your question.
