Do you need the dentist if you have dentures?
Updated: 10/12/2012 5:59:16 AM

Do you need the dentist if you have dentures?  Thanks to the many advancements made in the dental health industry in the past few decades like water fluoridation, many people are keeping their natural teeth well into their golden years. However, that doesn't mean that dentures are a thing of the past, and people who wear them need to know that just because they have dentures, doesn't mean they don't have to visit a dentist regularly.

Recently, Dental Health Magazine published an article stressing the importance of dental care with dentures. According to the news source, even people who have no remaining natural teeth need to go to the dentist for regular check-ups. While he may not be concerned about tooth decay anymore, he can still check for signs of oral cancer, and make sure that the soft tissue in the mouth is healthy.

People with partial dentures actually have a higher risk of tooth decay than people who still have their natural teeth. That's because food particles are likely to get stuck in between the teeth and partial dentures, so it's important to brush, floss and visit the dentist.

WebMD states that people who don't want dentures should consider dental implants, which are a more permanent option. However, not everyone is a candidate for these, and individuals should consult their dentist to find out what's right for them.
