If you’ve lost a number or all of your teeth to decay or gum disease, you may find yourself feeling increasingly self-conscious or embarrassed. What’s worse, tooth loss can also negatively impact your appearance as it often results in bite collapse. Fortunately, Hammond Pond Dental Group has a solution that can help you overcome your troubles with missing teeth.
Dentures are removable dental restorations that are made of a gum-colored base that supports one or several replacement teeth. A denture may be complete or partial. If you’ve lost all of your teeth, you need full dentures.
Visit our dentist in Chestnut Hill, MA today to discuss your tooth replacement options.
Our dentist will carefully and gently examine your teeth and jawbone, as well as take dental x-rays to get further insights into your oral health. If you’re showing signs of cavities or gum disease, the dentist will prescribe treatment for this before moving on to the dental restorations.
The next step after an examination involves taking dental impressions. These impressions may be made manually using dental putty or digitally. The tooth impressions are used in the design and manufacture of your partial dentures.
During your second appointment, our dentist will check to see whether the dentures are a good fit. If not, several adjustments will be made before you’re finally allowed to take your restorations home.
Hammond Pond Dental Group offers after-care support and treatment at no additional charge. Call us today if you’re experiencing any difficulties after getting your dentures at our office.
