Do You Need Dentures? Can You Trust Your Dentist?

When patients visited their local dentist, they were told that they needed to have their teeth removed and replaced with false teeth.

However, since then allegations were made that many patients had perfect teeth, and didn’t need dentures at all.

Many patients who were given ill fitting dentures were told that if they required problems to be fixed they would have to foot the bill themselves, as Medicaid wouldn’t cover it.

Other allegations were that unqualified people took dental impressions, and sutured gums after teeth were pulled.

There has been a large increase in people making dentures themselves, and stories like this will surely make the numbers rise further.

Most people put their faith in the dental expert, and trust that any treatment is in their best interest.

If a dentist advised that permanent dentures were the best option for you, you wouldn’t like to think they were ripping you off or giving you bad advice.

It’s bad enough that people avoid the dentist because they have a dental phobia, but when they pluck up the courage to go they don’t expect to be given unnecessary dental treatment.

The truth is that most dental clinics are run with the utmost integrity. They care about their patients and want to do what’s best for them.

If you need to find a new dentist, it’s better to go on personal recommendation or check out any bad publicity they’ve had.
