Did you know that 36 million Americans are missing all of their teeth? According to the American College of Prosthodontists, 15 percent of these people have dentures made every year. In some states, these people can choose to visit an independent health care professional called a denturist. They provide denture services directly to patients.
Dentists provide dentures, too. However, there are some reasons why you might decide to see a denture specialist. You could be referred to a denture specialist by your regular dentist. Or, you may want to see a denture professional for financial reasons.
