Denture patients can be a real challenge, with five out of six dentists reporting that denture patients expect dentures to be easier than they actually are.
“Many patients think that dentures will solve all of their problems and will never need to be replaced,” said one dentist.
“Dentures always are a last resort, of course. When dentures are necessary, I make time to hand set porcelain teeth and give the patient the option of having dental implants to secure their gorgeous new denture to (if there is enough bone to support this treatment),” said another. “To say that my patients are thrilled and relieved is an understatement.”
