The American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons states that 69% of adults ages 35 to 44 have lost at least one permanent tooth to an accident, gum disease, a failed root canal or tooth decay, and by age 74, 26% of adults have lost all of their permanent teeth.
Dentures are an affordable solution for people with missing teeth.
Dentures are great, but they are not magic, a fact overlooked by a lot of denture wearers.
Dentures can be challenging for both doctor and patient, as revealed in a The Wealthy Dentist survey where we asked dentists if dental patients have realistic expectations about dentures.
Complained one dentist, who responded to the survey, “No matter how much you tell them how difficult it’s going to be, they still don’t get it!”
A dental implantologist responded, “For every other procedure, I have a sing-page consent form. For dentures my consent form is 4 pages long!”
