Dentures and Dating—What if they find out you’re wearing them?
When patients are told that dentures would be the best solution for their permanent tooth loss, they have a lot of questions. Some of them they ask us, but other questions are left unanswered because the patient is embarrassed to ask, like “What will happen if my date finds out these aren’t my real teeth?” All it takes is one web search to confirm that this is a concern for denture wearers of all ages. This question or ones like it are being asked and commented on every day, so that’s why we decided to tackle it here.
As a new relationship is developing, you definitely want to put your best foot forward when you realize that this person is someone you’d like to get to know better. That’s why you spend the extra time getting ready, choose your words carefully during dinner conversation and learn more about what interests them. They seem to like you too, but you aren’t sure if you are ready to share your secret that is hiding in your mouth. You may even think that if you just skillfully avoid forbidden foods and make sure they are firmly adhered before dates, that you can keep them from finding out for just a little bit longer until you know their feelings are mutual.
