We’re writing to all the adults in our community to raise denture awareness. If you or someone you care about is a denture wearer, there’s a social phenomenon we want you to know about.
Are you a denture wearer who’s afraid to be seen in public because you think your denture is unattractive? Do you find yourself eating alone because you can’t eat certain foods gracefully? Do you wear your lower denture in your pocket?
Did you know that even if you wear dentures you should be seen by a dentist at least once a year to have your dentures evaluated? At our office dentures are evaluated for cracks, lose or broken teeth, overall fit, and cleaned professionally.
Ill-fitting dentures that slip can cause embarrassment, of course. But if you can’t trust your denture, you may become susceptible to social isolation. Maybe you feel uncomfortable out and about or live in fear of a denture accident in the company of friends and family. Some people give in to the real desolation of life with a bad denture.
Well, don’t do it. Start fresh. Dr. Schoen is a denture specialist that can help you regain function, comfort, and a natural appearance by replacing or refitting your denture. In fact, with the right fit, most denture wearers can eat anything that’s put in front of them, and look good doing it.
In the best of all possible worlds, a denture lasts forever. But in fact, over time, the tissues in your mouth change, and even the best denture won’t fit as well as it once did. The preferred remedy–a new denture–is not always feasible. That’s why there are denture relines.
If you recognize reclusive behavior in yourself or a friend, please call our office at (864) 627-9111. We’ll evaluate your denture and find a way to make it work again–so you can get on with life.
We look forward to hearing from you!
