Ask the average person what they think of dentures and most would likely tell you that dentures are for the elderly, but this is not true. For certain, the elderly are the primary users of dentures, but there are other segments of people that use dentures. For example, people who have suffered an injury or poor dental health because they lack access to dental care. There’s no rule suggesting that age is a limiting factor for their use. Dentures regularly help people from all walks of life and age groups.

Dental Partners of Boston is proud to offer denture treatment for those in need for whatever reason. Dentures are a remedy for those who need teeth replacement, and it’s best to contact a specialist to schedule a consultation. Another solution to missing teeth is dental implants, which is a superior option to permanently replace missing teeth. However, not everyone qualifies for dental implants for various reasons including health bone and gums. We will go over your options based on our consultation visit with you.

Highest quality, professional service!

Who Needs Dentures?

When thinking of dentures, some may picture an elderly person dunking their dentures in a glass of water to soak. However, those who have received dentures have discovered how far they have come in the last twenty years of dentistry. They are functionally advanced and thoroughly hygienic as they serve as dental replacements.

The truth is, anyone could need dentures after tooth loss due to gum disease, injury, or difficulties with oral health. Therefore, there’s no shame in asking about dentures or any other dental procedure for that matter. You’ve most likely met people who wear them. Thanks to how discreet and realistic they are, it would be difficult to tell someone is wearing them.

Dentures unlock your ability to eat with comfort, smile naturally, improve dental health, and regain your confidence.

What Options Are Available?

There are two types of dentures: complete and partial.

  • Complete dentures are full replacements for patients who may have suffered full or near full tooth loss. Complete dentures require removing the weakened few teeth left to provide an easy-to-wear full set. Thanks to the nature of complete dentures, they fit perfectly and guarantee a beautiful new set of teeth.
  • Partial dentures are for those who still retain some of their teeth and do not need a full arch created. We take our time to ensure your partial dentures fit in with the natural lining of your teeth, filling the gaps reliably with a gum-colored base instead of with an artificial aesthetic.

Things You Should Know

As your dental situation changes for the better it can sometimes alter how you speak. It may take a couple of weeks to get used to your new set of teeth (we recommend slowly working up to harder and varied foods).

We recommend semi-regularly visits to ensure your dentures are being cared for properly, remain comfortable, and retain their strength. This way, we can provide the best denture experience for you.

One appointment could be all you need to start the road to regaining confidence in your smile. We look forward to speaking with you and answering all of your questions.

A New Treatment for Receding Gums

Receding gums is a condition where your gums pull back from the tooth surface. This causes the root surface of your teeth to be exposed. This form of gum disease is a serious consequence of poor oral health, which may lead to tooth loss.

Receding gums has a number of causes, including aggressive brushing over time, plaque buildup, smoking, hormonal changes in women, family history of gum disease, diabetes, and HIV. Certain medications can cause dry mouth, which increases your risk because your mouth has less saliva than it should. When you have a dry mouth, the tissues in your mouth can become vulnerable to bacterial infections and injuries.

Receding gums is something that is most common in adults 40 years of age and over. For this reason, people often think that it is a normal sign of aging and can go untreated.

Symptoms of Receding Gums

Symptoms of receding gums include the following:

  • bleeding after brushing or flossing
  • bad breath
  • red, swollen gums
  • pain at the gum line
  • exposed tooth roots
  • visibly shrinking gums
  • loose teeth

Receding gums will be diagnosed by a dentist who will give you an examination.

Pinhole Treatments for Receding Gums

In the past, the only way to cover exposed dental roots was via gum grafting surgery. The procedure would stitch over the exposed root harvested gum tissue from other areas of the mouth. Traditional gum surgery was something that often created a lot of bleeding, and many patients found it uncomfortable. Today, however, the solution is far better with the pinhole surgical technique. During pinhole surgery, the periodontist makes a tiny incision above the affected tooth or teeth. Then tiny collagen strips are placed inside of the incision, holding the tissue in place and encouraging healing. This means it is far more comfortable for the patient and there is a reduced chance of infection. The incisions are so small that it means that patients also won’t have to live with scarred gum tissue.

What to Expect from Pinhole Surgical Technique?

Not only is it a far more comfortable procedure, but the pinhole surgical technique is faster. Dentists are able to treat several teeth at one time. Most patients will see the desired results in one or two pinhole surgical treatments. In the past, traditional gum surgery often required several sessions.

While some patients experience some bruising and swelling following pinhole surgery, the procedure does offer instant results. This means patients can enjoy full gum coverage immediately following the procedure, fending off dental sensitivity.

Who Qualifies for Pinhole Surgical Treatment?

If you have gum recession, you are likely to qualify for the pinhole surgical technique. You will need to make an appointment with the Dental Partners of Boston to determine whether the pinhole surgical technique is right for you. During your consultation, you will find learn about the benefits of pinhole surgery and how it can alleviate your symptoms.

Restore Your Smile with a Full Mouth Reconstruction

Have you ever had a bad day and in your worst mood, but then you felt joy when someone made you laugh? Or suddenly grinned back at someone smiling at you? Smiling is contagious. When you smile, your brain releases endorphins, neuropeptides, dopamine, and serotonin, which lowers your heart rate and blood pressure, decreases stress levels, relaxes your body, and lifts your mood.

Of course, you may be holding back your smile if you have damaged teeth, which can lower your self-esteem and confidence. But now is the time to start enjoying all the great benefits of smiling. This is why all of us at Dental Partners of Boston work together to provide you with a full-mouth reconstruction when needed. We want you to smile uninhibitedly.

Smile Restoration with a Full Mouth Reconstruction

Full mouth reconstruction is one of the most complex procedures in dentistry. It involves a series of procedures, which solve severe dental problems and cosmetic concerns. Although the processes involved aren’t all cosmetic, it can include some cosmetic fixes, such as teeth whitening as part of the treatment.

You may consider consulting with us about a full mouth reconstruction procedure if:

  • You have tooth damage following gum recession or gum disease.
  • An accident that has caused damage to your mouth or loss of teeth.
  • Your teeth have become worn down by tooth grinding or acid erosion from food, beverages, or acid reflux.
  • If you’re experiencing jaw pain or headaches caused by jaw misalignment

What Full Mouth Reconstruction Procedures Will You Need?

While a full mouth reconstruction may be necessary to restore your oral health and improve your cosmetic concerns, no two procedures are alike. Only the Dental Partners of Boston dentist working on your full mouth reconstruction can determine the right procedures for your unique dental needs. However, some of the reconstruction procedures include:

Dental implants

Dental implants are the most permanent dental reconstruction method. The procedure involves the placement of a titanium root in the jawbone, with a crown over the implants. This procedure restores a significant amount of functionality, which means you can eat your favorite foods without experiencing any pain or difficulties. What’s more, implants help prevent bone resorption.

Dentures

Dentures are artificial arches of removable upper and lower teeth. Most patients can adapt well to upper dentures because of the suction created between the denture base and the palate. However, lower dentures may require an adhesive.

Although dentures are a popular full mouth reconstruction option, they have some drawbacks. For example, because they’re removable, they can shift when eating or chewing. This means that you may not be able to eat your favorite foods. Also, they don’t prevent bone resorption.

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns may be an excellent option to restore your smile if you have fractured or decaying teeth. Your prosthodontist will reshape your teeth so that the crown can fit over it. Once your prosthodontist has created your permanent crown, it will be inserted and restore the functionality and appearance of your teeth.

Porcelain veneers

If your front teeth are discolored or misaligned, artificial shells, known as veneers, can be created and placed over your teeth to match the color of your other natural teeth.

Discuss Your Full Mouth Reconstruction Options

Do you suspect that you need extensive dental work to restore your smile and oral health? Take the first step and contact us to schedule a consultation. During this appointment, we will discuss your concerns and needs, and help you determine the right full mouth reconstruction procedure for you.

The Dangers of Gum Disease

Proper dental care for your teeth and gums can prevent health problems and prevent serious and painful dental treatments. If you are seeking gum disease treatment, prevention, and control, please contact us at Dental Partners of Boston.

What is Gum Disease?

Bacteria naturally occurs in the mouth, but an overgrowth can lead to tooth decay, which can then cause infection in the gums. If these infections progress without treatment, gum disease, also known as Periodontal Disease will set in. Bacteria builds up in between and around the bases of your teeth, creating plaque. Hardened plaque is only removable during a professional dental cleaning. Plaque is the first indication that a serious condition may be developing.

What Are the Signs and Symptoms?

If you notice that your gums have become red, swollen, and are painful in one or more areas in your mouth, it is likely that you have developed the most common form of gum disease: gingivitis. Sometimes your gums will bleed during your regular brushing and flossing routines. Gingivitis is reversable with a thorough cleaning, excellent home care habits, and regular visits to our office for cleanings and exams. Correcting this condition in time will prevent the disease’s progression into serious infections and periodontal disease.

Am I At Risk for Gum Disease?

For some, there are certain risk factors that increase the chances that you will develop gum disease, especially if we aren’t able to intervene in the early stages. For example:

  • Smoking: Smoking leads to a number of oral health conditions, and it affects your whole body wellness. Smoking has serious repercussions on your oral health, not only staining the teeth but causing gum recession which undermines the connective tissues that anchor your teeth in your jaw. Gum disease is a danger, as is tooth loss.
  • Hormonal Changes: When the body goes through normal changes such as puberty, pregnancy and breast-feeding, and aging, there is often a shift in oral health as the body adapts.
  • Diabetes: Diabetic people are generally at high risk for infections and illnesses, and this goes for oral health issues as well. Well-controlled diabetes lessens the changes, but if diabetes is poorly controlled, gum disease is likely to develop.
  • Medication: A common side effect of certain medications is known as dry-mouth. The lack of saliva can cause an overgrowth of bacteria, making the mouth vulnerable to infection and gum disease.

What Can I Do?

If you are concerned about gum disease, please call our office today to schedule an appointment. We will conduct a thorough exam and recommend a course of action to correct and prevent gum disease.

 

Why Oral Cancer Screenings?

Oral cancer can develop in any part of the mouth. It can often go undiagnosed for a long period of time if you don’t see a dentist regularly. The signs and symptoms can easily go unnoticed. Here at Dental Partners of Boston, we ensure your oral health is in check. We offer complete oral exams including oral cancer screening. It’s something everyone should be receiving, and we can help you with that.

Complete Oral Exams at Dental Partners of Boston

If you want to find out how your oral hygiene is in general we can carry out a complete oral exam at Dental Partners of Boston. This allows us to get a full look at your oral health and hygiene and the chance to spot any problems. We can see early signs of issues that would otherwise go unnoticed. Early screening will ensure the right treatments are provided sooner rather than later to keep you at optimum oral health.

What Is the Oral Cancer Screening Procedure?

we carry out oral cancer screenings as part of our complete oral exams. It’s important that we do this because oral cancer can often be diagnosed late, making treatment more difficult and complex. We can find the earliest symptoms and take action. Oral cancer can develop in any part of the mouth, including the lips, gums, tongue, cheek lining, the roof of the mouth, and the floor of the mouth. As part of our complete oral exams, we can check these parts of the mouth for signs of or oral cancer.

Why Oral Screening Is So Important

Like any cancer, finding the problem early, and getting the treatment you need, is what matters most. Overcoming the issue will be much easier if oral cancer screenings are carried out regularly during your regular dental checkup. This one of the reasons why it is so important to not miss your regular dental checkups. It is our job to keep you healthy and safe. It’s particularly important for people in high-risk groups to receive regular checks. High-risk groups include people who smoke, consume a lot of alcohol, or have weakened immune systems.

Gum Disease Prevention: Teaching Kids Good Oral Hygiene

As a parent, you want the best for your child in terms of their health, including their oral hygiene. But you might be unsure of how to help your child learn to care for their teeth. Don’t worry, we’ve got tips and strategies that’ll help you ensure your child develops good oral health and hygiene habits as soon as possible. This can prevent serious issues such as gum disease as a child and later in life.

Implement an Oral Hygiene Routine Early On

To avoid troublesome issues like gum disease and tooth decay, get into good oral hygiene habits as early as possible. If it’s something that they grow up doing as part of a daily routine, it will stick with them as they grow into adulthood. It will become normal for them and they’ll show little resistance to the idea of brushing and flossing daily.

Make it Fun to Battle Gum Disease

Another good way to establish routines from an early age and prevent gum disease is to make it fun. Sure, brushing their teeth will probably not be the highlight of their day, but you can make it playful and engaging. Even the most dreadful of tasks, like making their bed or cleaning their room, can be made fun. For example, they can brush along with a song, pretend the brush and toothpaste are battling the bad germs (gum disease) in their mouth, you could set a timer, or use incentives.

Invest in Age-Appropriate Brushing and Cleaning Tools

Brushing and flossing are difficult for your child when they are very young. There are toddler brushes and flossing tools that make fighting gum disease much easier. Make sure to choose age-appropriate tools. It will allow your child to play an active role in their oral hygiene from an early age. They won’t have to rely on you to do it all for them.

Set a Good Example

It’s a good idea to brush your own teeth and take care of your oral hygiene while your child is also present. Gum disease is no respecter of age or gender. If you don’t properly care for your teeth, you are just as susceptible as anyone else in developing gum disease. Show your kids that it’s not something that only they have to do. Instead, it’s something that you and everyone else does, too. Kids are impressionable at a young age, and when they see their parents doing something, they’ll want to do the same.

Visit A Pediatric Dentist

Another key part of taking care of your child’s teeth to prevent gum disease is ensuring they have regular checkups with a pediatric dentist. Many offer “practice visits” for children to go see what the office is like before they have their first exam and cleaning. This way, they know what to expect and have been taught to look forward to their check-up. They won’t feel trepidation upon returning for their regular bi-annual visits.

The right pediatric dentist will not only make your child feel safe and comfortable in their care but expertly teach them how to take care of their teeth at home. They will help to establish good habits as your child grows. As they develop these habits, hopefully, they, and you, won’t ever have to worry about gum disease.

Covering the Cost of Dental Implants

A man smiling about dental implants

We realize that finances play a role when we recommend dental implants as an option to replace missing teeth. Implants are the ideal solution because they feel and function just like a regular tooth. It’s essential to keep the bone structure healthy as well, which an implant will ensure, unlike other tooth replacement options such as dentures. We don’t want our patients to believe that without the cash to pay for the treatment, they won’t be able to afford dental implants.

Please don’t consider dental implants to be a luxury option only. Putting off the treatment will only put your oral health, and your overall wellbeing, in jeopardy. At Dental Partners of Boston, we understand that affording dental work isn’t always easy. So, that’s why we have a variety of options at your disposal.

The following is how we try to make dental implants accessible to everyone.

We Talk To Your Insurer About Dental Implant Coverage

You may not have experience dealing with your insurance company often. You may not know what to say or know what questions to ask, but you don’t need to because we’ll do it for you. Our experienced team will speak to your insurance company to find out what they cover and how we can make things work for you.

All you have to do is contact us for an exam and consultation. At your appointment, we will gather your necessary insurer details, such as the name of the company, phone number, and policy reference.

A payment plan is a possible arrangement. Unlike other dental practices, we create your schedule to your specific needs. This ensures the amount you pay back each month is affordable and doesn’t put you under any undue pressure. During your consultation, we will gather some financial details from you to determine what is agreeable for you and us.

How Dental Implants Work

Dental implants are a fantastic solution to missing teeth. They can allow you to return to normality in terms of appearance, natural feel, and function. At Dental Partners of Boston, we have periodontists with years of experienced at placing dental implants.

How Do Dental Implants Work?

Dental implants work by replacing the root of a tooth with a small screw-like metal implant. That implant as it heals becomes bonded with your jaw to format strong root replacement for a missing tooth. Once this implant has been bonded, an artificial tooth or “crown” is fitted.

With a dental implant, the tooth is remarkably stable and performs just like any other tooth in your mouth. It doesn’t get removed for cleaning, and you won’t be left feeling like there’s a foreign object in your mouth, either.

Why Are Dental Implants the Best Solution for Missing Teeth?

Dental implants are the best solution for missing teeth, first and foremost, because of how natural they are in terms of feel, appearance, and performance.

Many older approaches, such as dentures, involve complex cleaning processes and have often required significant changes to the lifestyles of the individuals involved. Dental implants, by contrast, allow you to get on with your life just as you would with your natural teeth. Once the healing process is complete, you can expect to quickly forget about the fact that you have implants in at all.

Here’s a straightforward rundown of the process of having dental implants fitted.

Initial consultation

The first step of the process is an initial consultation with your implant dentist. You will discuss the various options available and will have impressions and x-rays of your mouth taken, as required.

Dental implant placement

Following your initial consultation, you will have the implant itself fitted in your jaw where your missing tooth would be. This process is like any other dental surgery. It will be performed under anesthetic, and will require some healing and may cause a bit of swelling and bleeding. However, it’s worth mentioning that patients frequently find the process to be less painful than they imagined it would be.

Osseointegration

Before the process can proceed further, the main part of the implant has to fuse with your jawbone. This happens as a natural part of the healing process and results in a firm base for the tooth. This process can take up to a few months but is unlikely to interfere much with your everyday life – although you will be on a soft food diet for the first few weeks.

Abutment placement

Once the implant has bonded with your jaw, a small connecting element – called an abutment – will be attached to the implant just above the gum line. Your custom-made tooth will later be attached to this abutment.

Customization and attachment of new teeth

Once the abutments have been fitted, custom-made and lifelike teeth will be installed in place, based partly on molds taken from your existing teeth. When the custom-made teeth have been attached, they will look, feel, and perform just like your real teeth would.

Checkups

Dental implants don’t decay like real teeth, but they do still require the same cleaning routine, along with regular checkups.

Once the implants have healed and settled, these checkups will be essentially the same as any other dental checkup would – and will tend to occur with the same frequency, too. Give us a call today to schedule a consultation with one of our exceptional doctors to discuss your dental implant options today.

What Are Bone Grafts?

Do you want to find out more about bone grafts and how they help your oral health? In this blog post, we’ll look at the different types of bone grafts and why you may need it when getting a dental implant.

What Are They And Why Do You Need Them?

A bone graft is a solid foundation on which we will apply a dental implant. Usually, they are needed because you suffer from a form of gum disease and have left it for too long. As a result, the bacteria eat away at the jawbone and surrounding teeth. The graft allows your dentist to repair or replace your teeth with implants.

Removing a tooth isn’t always an option as it can make depressions and indentations in the bone more pronounced. Therefore, bone grafts eliminate the need to take out teeth and damage your jaw even more.

What Happens If You Don’t Get A Bone Graft?

Usually, patients that don’t opt for a bone graft may choose other options for a tooth or teeth replacement. A different option to consider for a tooth replacement is to get a dental bridge. However, a dental bridge requires a health healthy set of teeth on either side of the gap. These healthy teeth are needed to provide a solid anchor for the bridge. This is not always an option and also requires reshaping the healthy teeth on both sides to place dental crowns as the anchors. A dental crown also does not prevent bone loss from the missing tooth since the crown does not attach to the bone at the root level.

In extreme situations, your jawbone may recede to the point you lose facial contour. When this happens, the only way to replace it is with a bone graft.

Bone grafts also play a significant role in making new teeth possible. Without the foundations to build on, your periodontist won’t be able to make implants stay firmly in place, even with new applicators such as biologically active gels.

The Types Of Bone Grafts

There are three main types of bone grafts:

  • Particulate
  • Block
  • Sinus lift procedures

Particulate Grafts

A particulate bone graft is when small shards of bone are placed around a tooth to hold it in place. The particles add extra stability, making particulate grafts perfect for small sockets and single teeth.

Block Grafts

Block bone grafts build on particulate by using bone particles in blocks. They are used for significant shrinkage as they can reduce the amount by up to 25%. Without significantly building up the bone, there is no way to receive a dental implant.

Sinus Lift Procedures

Sinus lifts are used for extreme cases where the cavity is too close to the jawbone. As a result, a dentist must lift back the membrane to place a bone graft to create more space. This is typically done if there is fewer than 5mm between the cavity and jaw.

How Long Do Bone Grafts Take to Heal?

For major bone graft surgery, you will need to wait three to six months to determine whether the graft is stable enough for dental implants. Minor bone grafts can be done during the procedure, but only if your periodontist believes it’s suitable.

Dental Partners of Boston Can Help

Complete Oral Exams

Regular dental checkups and oral exams are essential for good overall health and well-being. Far too many people put off their dental visits for long periods of time. Here is a look at the thorough oral exams we offer at Dental Partners of Boston. Our team of highly dedicated and conscientious professionals will take great care of your oral health and answer any questions you may have.

Dental Exams of Diagnostic Low-Radiation X-Rays

With low-radiation x-ray exams, we can detect decay, spot tumors, and cysts, and diagnose bone loss. The x-ray dental exams will then allow for quick and effective treatment and correction. Low-radiation x-rays are also useful for determining the precise positions of your teeth and roots.

Oral Cancer Screening

Our oral cancer screening involves a thorough examination of the face, neck, lips, tongue, throat, soft tissue, and gums to spot cancer in the early stages. Here is a look at each of our dental screenings.

Gum Disease Evaluation

Our team will investigate your gums and supporting bone structure for any signs of developing periodontal disease.

Tooth Decay Screening

A close oral exam of all your tooth surfaces will tell us if there is any tooth decay. If any issues are identified from our examination, necessary recommendations will be provided.

Examination of Your Existing Restorations

Your existing fillings and crowns need to be monitored and maintained – and we will conduct appropriate evaluations for that purpose.

Occlusion Analysis

An irregular or otherwise compromised bite can harm the structure of your face, and can even contribute to issues such as TMJ. That being the case, we will evaluate your bite, notify you of any issues, and make recommendations as required.

Smile Analysis

Everyone wants a beautiful smile. If you’re not happy with your smile, we can conduct a smile analysis to put you on the fast track to the smile of your dreams.

Why regular dental exams are essential

Regular dental exams are essential for all sorts of different reasons, not least of all the fact that the mouth is the primary entry point to the body. Poor dental health can cause a slew of other health conditions, and in extreme cases, can even be life-threatening. Good dental health is also essential for enjoying everyday life without unnecessary pain or complications. No one wants to have trouble eating, speaking, or even sleeping peacefully.

Finally, the state of your mouth and teeth have an effect on the relationships you develop with others. For this reason, it’s essential to keep your teeth looking presentable and perform their vital functions properly.

Regular dental exams can help you to identify issues as they are developing, and to nip them in the bud so that you aren’t confronted by significant problems further down the line.
