A new survey has revealed that denture wearers behave differently than those people who do not wear dentures, in many cases.
Wearing false teeth causes more worries when it comes to dating. They think their date might be put off by dentures.
Denture wearers appear to avoid certain activities, events, and food.
Perhaps part of the problem might be ill fitting dentures, and the fear that the false teeth may fall out causing embarrassment.
Another problem seems to be the irritation and embarrassment caused when food gets trapped under the dentures whilst eating.
If you have just had false teeth fitted you are possibly self conscious, feeling that everyone knows you are wearing dentures.
The survey, performed on behalf of Fixodent, also revealed a lack of knowledge concerning the variety of denture fixatives available to hold the false teeth in place.
With Fixodent, you can eat, drink, laugh, and go about your day knowing that your dentures will stay in place, says Fixodent Brand Manager Matthew Martin (source).
If you recognize yourself behaving like this, then perhaps you need to try out a denture fixative. If you have had your teeth for a number of years then perhaps they just don’t fit properly any more.
Gaps in dentures allow for food to lodge itself inside the space. This can lead to both a sore mouth and halitosis or bad breath.
In the case of badly fitting dentures, there a number of false teeth options. You could perhaps have your dentures relined, or get new dentures.
Many people put up with dentures that don’t fit properly due to finances, but you can find low cost dentures if you shop around.
There is always a solution for slack dentures, and you shouldn’t let wearing false teeth affect your life in a negative way.
Another option would be to replace your loose false teeth with a fixed denture bridge or dental implants. Many people who threw their dentures away because they didn’t like wearing them, found the option of implanted dentures transformed their life.
