The benefits of replacing those old dentures
Dr. Grooms treats a wide variety of dental issues at his practice. One of which, includes taking care of those patients who have been without teeth for many years and have dentures sometimes older than he is. As dentures are worn throughout the years they stain, wear and sometimes break. As the teeth wear down, the bite will collapse causing an aging smile, sunken in face, and sometimes even pain in the jaw joints. If you believe any of these apply to your situation, you should consider replacing your old worn denture. Below is a picture of a denture, Dr. Joshua Grooms did this week. The old denture was 30+ years old and the patient was more than ready for a new set.
