Back then, even minor care of our teeth was out of the question. I can remember brushing my teeth with salt water instead of toothpaste simply because salt was cheaper than toothpaste. My mother had bad teeth. My father had bad teeth. I had bad teeth and so did my two brothers and sister. In short, except for the brushing, professional oral hygiene was something we just could not afford. Since then, dentures have become a part of my life and the lives of many other “depression kids” like us.Then, when I was about nine, my two front teeth were accidentally broken completely off. So, for the last 70 years I've been wearing dentures. First I had a partial denture, now I have full upper dentures. So, believe me,I know about dentures and their use and care.
Today, a host of doctors, dentists and other oral specialists have discovered the lack of proper oral care can have serious, even life threatening consequences. There are risks such as: heart disease, gum infection, stroke, diabetes, respiratory concerns and other general health problems. These researchers say common and often chronic infections that originate in the mouth, have been known to spread, through the bloodstream, to many other parts of the body including the heart and lungs. In addition, people with periodontal disease can also suffer coronary artery disease and more.
After I had all of my bad upper teeth removed and an upper denture inserted in my mouth, my first reaction was one of joy and relief. It actually felt good to be able to chew food properly - with no pain. I remember, thinking the problems and pain I’d always had with my bad teeth was now a thing of the past.
Within a year or so, my now toothless gums began to shrink with the result that my denture became loose and then, as time went on, simply chewing food, with my denture in my mouth, again became painful and much more difficult. My dentist said gum shrinkage after tooth extraction was to be expected. He went on to say he could fix the problem by re-lining my denture. Re-lining meant adding acrylic material to my denture to fill the gaps left by the gum shrinkage. After that was done, I had several more related dental appointments when my dentist made more adjustments to take away the high spots in the denture that were the source of quite painful, raw sores on my gums.
Needless to say, all of this proved to be quite expensive. That is when I said to myself: “Terry, there has to be a better way!
So then, my naturally creative and inventive mind went to work on the problem. After much thought and experimentation I came up with the idea for my patent pending invention the: Weber Denture Liner Kit.
This is a new way anyone can use to reline his or her loose dentures. No costly dentist appointments needed. This is an easy to use kit designed to quickly, easily and inexpensively make any uncomfortable or loose denture fit much better.
The Weber Denture Liner kit has an always-soft and finger-moldable liner compound which is durable and easily replaceable (no mixing required). The kit is designed to make false teeth much more comfortable as well as a good way to also have better oral hygiene and thus, according to researchers, a healthier life in the days ahead.
In short, I can attribute my invention of this low-cost do-it-yourself Weber Denture Liner kit for the re-lining of dentures to the lessons I learned years ago as a depression kid. What were those lessons? First, do the best you can with what you have and second, to do it now. Obviously, the result of my experience is this, I am now truly convinced of this fact: your mouth is a gateway to your good health.
