TOOTH LOSS IS SOMETHING WE DO OUR UTMOST TO PREVENT here at Dental Partners of Boston. However, sometimes it just simply can’t be avoided. Fortunately, thanks to modern-day technologies, walking around with gaps in your smile is no longer something you’ll have to live with. For cases with only one or two missing teeth, dental implants may be the best plan of action. For more serious cases, like those of you with 3 or more missing teeth, or hardly any teeth left at all, we recommend dentures.
Here at Dental Partners of Boston, we offer both complete and partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when very little of your original teeth remain. One of our highly specialized dentists will first remove any of your remaining teeth so that your dentures can be fitted. Next, a mold of your gums will be created and sent it off to a dental lab that will create your customized set of dentures. Oh, and don’t worry—we will fit you with a temporary set until your permanent dentures are finished!
Partial dentures are recommended for patients with only a few missing teeth. Not only do partial dentures fill in the spaces created by missing teeth, they prevent other teeth from changing position. Here at Dental Partners of Boston, we are also pleased to offer implant-supported dentures.
If you are missing teeth, or have a loved one or friend that is, request an appointment with one of our dental specialists today. We will work with you to create a individualized plan that best fits your specific needs. There’s no need to live with those gaps any longer! It’s time to fill in the holes and give you a smile you’re proud of.
