One gentleman had false teeth and in the first 15 years he was not even able to eat corn on the cob. He can bite off the corn but his lower plate would be dislodged. Since he had dentures screwed to his jaw, it has been two years. What he can do at age 54 is enjoy that favorite summer treat not to mention eat whatever he wants.
Many people have lost either some or all of their teeth thanks to the high rates of gum disease and tooth decay that we have seen through several years that have passed. Relying on oral prosthesis is done in order to maintain aesthetics and function. True enough, prostheses as these are not good enough substitutes for natural teeth for most of the time, patients find these very ill fitting and extremely uncomfortable. Now, these patients struggling for an answer that will give them comfort, visit one dentist to another as dental cripples.
