Hey! My Grandmother is 78 now. As we all know, when we grow old, we might face teeth-loss. So when my grandma was 70 her first heartbreak happened! she lost her right incisors. Losing one tooth at this age doesn't matter. After a week, one of her canines fell down while she was eating her breakfast. Gradually her teeth lose became very common among us. She was unable to eat. I felt pity for her and decided to find a solution. While researching on the internet, I came to know about dentures. She had six teeth left in her mouth. The ajax dentist ( ) told us to go for removable partial dentures. One week back, she got all her self-esteem back. She can eat, chew and talk properly. My grandma is diabetic, let me know whether these dentures have any side effects?

As long as she pays attention to any soreness or irritation, she should do fine. She probably feels so much better and may even gain a little eight. I bet her smiles are a big treat to her and friends now. When my teeth started to go bad, I quit smiling.

The American Dental Association generally advises diabetics not to wear dentures all the time. Thrush, a fungal infection, is a common complication in diabetics wearing dentures. It appears as red or white patches throughout the mouth and causes a burning feeling and may make it difficult to swallow. It is more likely to happen if you:
experience dry mouth, decreased saliva flow, have problems controlling your blood glucose levels, smoke, are taking antibiotics.
