Learn more about dentures and whether they are the right dental treatment for you.

Are you missing some or all of your teeth? Have you wondered the best way to treat your tooth loss? Then it’s time you talked to one of denturesour Billerica dentists Drs. Barry and Adam Danzig or Dr. Lili Tayari about whether dentures might be the best option for you. Discover more about dentures and what they can do for you.

What types of dentures are available?

When you visit your Billerica general dentist for a consultation we will discuss your treatment goals, lifestyle, questions and concerns and any habits you might have. Through these questions, we can determine whether dentures are the right restoration for you. After all, we want to meet your unique needs to give you the smile you want.

Here are the most common types of dentures to choose from:

  • Partial dentures: These restorations are great for patients who need to replace multiple teeth but still have some natural, healthy teeth left.
  • Full dentures: Those dealing with complete tooth loss can regain a full smile with a full set of dentures.
  • Implanted-supported dentures: These dentures don’t need to be attached with adhesives. Instead, this restoration is stabilized with the use of dental implants, which are surgically placed into the jawbone.

Are you a good candidate for dentures?

Most patients dealing with missing teeth can benefit from wearing dentures. It is important to keep in mind that dentures aren’t the same as natural teeth, so while you will enjoy having a full smile again it won’t be exactly like natural teeth. But the more you wear your dentures the easier and faster the transition will be.

Patients who aren’t right for dentures include those with sensitive gag reflexes, poor jawbone health, and those who grind their teeth. Those with deteriorated jawbones can receive a bone graft prior to getting implant-supported dentures.

Dentures have helped countless patients regain a healthy smile. Isn’t it your turn? Call Grateful Dentists in Billerica, MA to schedule your consultation today!
