Dentures and Mental Health Issues



Junior member

Hello, I live alone with no family or local friends. I am in real need of dentures as I have lost weight and enjoyment in food. Bridge on front teeth is over 20 years old and loose and molars on top are missing. I am somewhat concerned that adapting to false teeth could exacerbate existing mental health issues. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
@eileenv I just wanted to mention if you don't find anyone with experience in your situation on here, there is a subreddit just about discussing dentures called r/dentures

I searched that forum for "mental health" and there were quite a few threads.

Hope this may be useful
