Find out whether specialty dentures could improve your overall smile’s appearance.

We all want that perfect smile, but it can often feel like that will never happen when we suffer from tooth loss. While tooth loss can negatively impact our self-esteem it can also cause some further complications for the rest of your smile. While some tooth loss treatment options may financially seem out of reach, this doesn’t mean that you have to deal with a toothless smile. Specialty Denturesdentures in Weymouth can help restore your smile and your confidence once more.

About Dentures

Dentures are one of the least expensive and easiest ways to replace missing teeth. With all the advancements in dental technology, we can now offer a variety of different kinds of specialty dentures to fit each patient’s needs. Plus, our technology can now create comfortable, easy-to-wear dentures that look and feel more like natural teeth.

Types of Dentures

Dentures can either be categorized as partial or full. Partial dentures are ideal for those who only have a couple missing teeth but the rest of their natural smile is healthy and strong. On the other hand, full dentures are designed for those who are missing all of their teeth.

We also offer implant-supported dentures for those looking for a more permanent tooth replacement. By placing implants into your jawbone, we can then securely attach the dentures to these implants to hold them in place. This is a great option for those who routinely experience their conventional dentures slipping and moving around while they eat or talk.

Denture Care

Once you are fitted with your dentures it may take a little while to adjust to the new feel of your smile. This includes getting used to eating and talking with your dentures. Some patients adjust to their dentures in only a few short weeks while others may take a couple months. However, it’s important to gently clean your dentures each day, just as you would your natural teeth.

Opt for denture-friendly solutions and soft-bristled toothbrushes for cleaning your dentures. Also, when you aren’t wearing them, be sure to place them in solution to prevent them from losing their shape.

If you’re suffering from tooth loss then it’s high time you treated the problem. If you are interested in getting dentures, then talk to your Weymouth family dentist, Dr. Harry E.
