At our practice, we encounter many people who want quality dentures, but they talk themselves out of buying them because they believe they don’t deserve them. These people think they shouldn’t invest in themselves and feel that economy dentures are good enough for them. But if we really look at it, it’s easy to see that their logic doesn’t stand up. Everyone deserves to invest in themselves, including the investment in quality dentures.
People who don’t want to invest in quality dentures often say it’s a frivolous investment. Even though their current dentures may make them unhappy with their appearance or even physically uncomfortable, they think it’s fine. They can just make do. Even the idea of making an investment to enjoy a higher quality diet of foods that are healthy and delicious somehow doesn’t justify the expense, because their enjoyment and their happiness don’t matter.
But these things do matter. Happiness is an important part of healthiness.
Another factor that many seniors neglect is that your contribution to society entitles you to some small reward. It’s not just the years of work, it’s also the contribution you have made to your family, inspiring your children and even grandchildren.
When you look at all that you’ve done, can’t you see that you’ve earned the right to enjoy a comfortable, attractive, and functional smile?
What ultimately makes quality dentures a good investment is that it’s not just an investment in yourself, it’s also an investment in your family. When you have low-quality dentures, you likely avoid many situations you might otherwise enjoy. You might skip any function where there’s likely to be food because you don’t want people to see you eat with dentures. You might avoid occasions where there’s likely to be a camera because you don’t want to end up photographed.
And even if you show up to events, you might not participate fully. You might skip talking because you’re afraid your dentures might come loose. You might avoid smiling because you don’t want to expose your unattractive dentures.
Whenever this happens, you are denying your family opportunities to enjoy your company and your wisdom. If more quality time with your loved ones isn’t a worthwhile investment, it’s hard to imagine what is.
