Ah, the joys of aging. Our back gets a little stiffer, we lose a bit of the spring in our step, and yes, our teeth can begin to wear out. Of course, much of that depends on how well you have taken care of your teeth throughout your life as well as your eating habits. Take a look at this short video we will explore what options you have in the event that your teeth begin to wear out.
Many people operate under the assumption that if their teeth wear out, the next step is to get dentures. Hold on–you may have many other options. Another common notion is that as teeth wear out we can replace them with implants. That is true though not always the best alternative. Some people think that a crown will solve the problem. Maybe and maybe not.
The good news is that the options are varied and you have multiple choices. You can even correct an overbite later in life and not suffer from any discomfort while you are eating. The best person to discuss this with is your dentist who will examine your situation, offer you some options and let you decide what is best for you.
