Everyone is self-conscious about something. Unfortunately, for many people who wear dentures, the experience is often one of extreme self-consciousness and the impact it has on one’s life can be damaging.

In 2015, a US Oral Care Survey (Biting Into Denture Care) revealed the negative impact dentures have on self confidence for people who wear them. One surprising result of the survey was that 53% of respondents said they received their first set of dentures at the age 44 or even younger.
