All About Dentures & Dental Work

Dr. Murad Rashid is a general dentist at The Dentist Place, in Clearwater, Florida. In this series of articles, he explains the basics behind dentures, diets, and other dental health issues.

What Are Immediate Dentures?

Immediate dentures are the temporary devices that many patients wear when their natural teeth have been taken out and their permanent dentures are not yet ready. Immediate dentures serve their purpose, but they should not be worn for an extended period of time.

Can Dentures Ever Get Knocked Out of Place?

Dentures can get knocked out of place due to severe blunt force trauma. However, this is an unlikely occurrence that does not happen very commonly with most patients.

What Effect Can Tooth Loss Have On a Person's Appearance?

The loss of one or more teeth can significantly change the shape of a person's face. Oftentimes, wrinkles will become more pronounced as a result of tooth loss.

Can Certain Diets Hurt Your Oral Health?

Although there is the possibility that certain diets can cause damage to a patient's oral health, the vast majority of today's popular diets pose no danger whatsoever. Low-carbohydrate diets, for example, are not known to cause decay or any other serious dental conditions.
