Periodontology involves the study of the structure of teeth. Certain diseases erode the structure of teeth, necessitating removal of some or all teeth. When teeth are removed, a dentist or periodontist often recommends dentures. Denture wearers have to take care of their teeth using denture creams. Recently, there have been several denture cream lawsuits including the fleet phospho soda lawsuit and the poligrip lawsuit resulting from side effects from denture creams. In order to avoid wearing dentures, or to make sure you care properly for your dentures to avoid a denture cream lawsuit you will need to consult with a Periodontist.
