Well one thing to consider is that when you have complications like dry mouth from Sjorgrens Syndrom is that a denture is not going to be easier to wear. What I mean by that is, a dry mouth and dentures don't miss. The bacteria from our mouth will definitely accumulate more on the denture increasing complications of yeast or candida infections on the ridge, roof of mouth, tongue, etc. They also simply irritate the mouth more, more friction and less lubrication causes more spontaneous sores. So although your dentist probably does like get the money from the bridgework there are advantages to keep fixed teeth, rather than removable ones. Have you, or your dentist, talked about a salivary stimulant medication at all?
