New Dentures for my 102-Year-Old Grandmother-in-law!
What better topic for my very first blog than to write about my amazing Grandmother, Anne. I am just in the process of fitting Anne for her brand new dentures and I have to say, she looks fantastic! My wife, Brenda, jokes with her that she looks like a ninety-year-old!
In all seriousness, one of the reasons that Anne's dentures are such a success story is that Ann has taken such good care of her teeth throughout her life. This has enabled her to keep her own teeth for as long as she did (she just had the last seven pulled recently) which in turn, preserved the bone in her jaw. Good jaw bone means good anchors for dentures which is every dentist's dream.
Anne is living proof that people are living longer these days. Therefore, more now than ever, it's important to take care of our teeth with good oral hygiene habits and regular visits to the dentist so that they we can all have big, beautiful smiles like Anne's for many years to come!
