Does Everyone Need Dentures?
According to the American College of Prosthodontists, at least 120 million Americans have at least one missing tooth while 36 million are missing all of their teeth. Apart from aging, gum disease, decay, cancer, or other traumatic injuries can lead to loss of teeth. More than 90 percent of those who are missing all of their teeth have dentures.
Dentures are created by dentists and are artificial gums and teeth that replace natural teeth that are lost. Dentures are either partial or full depending on the number of missing teeth that have to be replaced. Partial dentures replace lost teeth on upper or lower gums, or only the few teeth that are missing. Full dentures replace all of the teeth lost.
