Dentures in Weymouth
If you’ve been dealing with tooth loss, then you are likely focused on the way you look. That’s completely normal. Your appearance, after all, has a tremendous impact on the way you feel about yourself and the first impression others get when they see you. Your smile is, therefore, an invaluable asset.
Your dentist, however, is also concerned about how the loss of even a single tooth can impact your oral and general health. Did you know that one missing tooth increases your risk of losing another tooth? And you are more likely to have decay in your remaining teeth as well as gum disease if you have tooth loss.
In addition, you may not be able to eat a balanced and healthy diet, which can affect your overall well being. For these reasons, replacing missing teeth will not only enhance your appearance, but may just help to also improve your health. Of course, the sooner you opt to have dentures made, the more likely you are to avoid these and other problems that can develop as a result of tooth loss.
The dentists and their team at Columbian Square Dental offer several types of dentures in Weymouth to help solve the problem of tooth loss. Your new smile will look good and feel great, too. The skilled craftsmen that we work with in our dental lab will create a prosthetic that closely replicates your natural smile.
Partial Dentures in Weymouth
If you are missing one tooth or a few teeth along an arch, then consider having a partial denture. You and your dentist will decide if a removable or fixed denture is best for you.
A removable partial consists of a false tooth that is attached to a metal base. Clips or brackets are incorporated to hook on to adjacent teeth so your partial is inconspicuously held in place. A is designed to fit like a puzzle piece between remaining teeth.
A fixed bridge is also called a crown and bridge. For this prosthetic device, two dental crowns mounted to teeth on both sides of the gap in your smile support false teeth that fill in for missing teeth. The crowns can also be attached to implants when abutment teeth are not healthy enough to support a bridge.
Full Dentures in Weymouth
If you’re missing all of the teeth along one or both arches then consider full dentures. Many of our patients find these to be an excellent choice both aesthetically and economically. Your denture will fit securely along your gums, but not so tight that they are uncomfortable. The base of your dentures are shaded to look like the natural color of gum tissue, and the false teeth have the shape and sheen of natural teeth.
For the most comfortable and secure tooth replacement option, choose implant-retained dentures. These combine the beauty of dentures with the security of dental implants. Partial and full dentures can both be outfitted to attach to implants that are surgically embedded in your jawbone. You’ll never have to worry about dentures slipping or changes in the shape of your jaw when you have implant-retained dentures.
