When a lifetime of poor dental health, a long-term health condition, or an accident leaves you without teeth, you may find yourself in the middle of a crisis. We understand that you need your teeth to perform some of life’s most basic functions such as chewing, speaking, and smiling. A complete or a partial denture can rescue you from your troubles and restore your dignity in Woburn.
Full or Partial Denture: What’s the Difference?
A full denture is a complete set of artificial teeth when there are no remaining natural teeth. A partial denture is a set of artificial teeth that is designed to fit around any remaining natural teeth. Both types of dentures are suitable for the upper or lower jaw, and many patients find it necessary to use dentures and partials in both jaws at once.
Brand New Dentures and Partials
For our first-time denture or partial wearers, we will take impressions and measurements of your gums and mouth to create a template for your new teeth. These records will be forwarded to a dental lab where the framework for the denture or partial will be designed. These replacement teeth will be completed in several stages, with try-ins and adjustments scheduled throughout the process. When the framework is found to fit comfortably and the artificial teeth look and feel as natural as possible, the entire appliance will be returned to the lab for final processing.
Patients with Existing Dentures and Partials
If you have lived with dentures or partials for many years, you might find that they no longer perform, fit, or look as nice as you would like. Our team can evaluate your artificial teeth, adjusting and relining when appropriate or replacing it entirely when necessary.
You deserve to have a smile that feels and looks like your own, even if you have artificial teeth. For that reason, we offer several options for making your dentures and partials one-of-a-kind. You will be offered the opportunity to provide input into the selection of the shape and height of your artificial teeth, the color of the gum tissue, and the color of the teeth.
