Should I have all of my teeth extracted and just get dentures? I have bad teeth and I am always needing crowns.

Q:Should I have all of my teeth extracted and just get dentures? I have bad teeth and I am always needing crowns.

A:No.It can be frustrating when you require extensive dental work but dentures are not comparable to your own teeth. Your chewing force drops from 200 lbs per squire inch down to 40 lbs per squire inch. And your ability to taste your food decreases dramatically as well.
