If you’re missing teeth, it can be difficult to enjoy the foods you love, your speech may sound different, and you may feel embarrassed to show your smile. Fortunately, our dentists at Hammond Pond Dental Group have several options for replacing teeth with prosthodontics in Chestnut Hill, MA.
The replacement for a tooth or several teeth is known as a prosthodontic. However, there are several forms of them, including:
There is also maxillofacial prosthodontics that helps people with cleft palates, cleft lip, or with damage from accidents or conditions like cancer.
The prosthodontics that you will choose from will depend on the type of work you’re having and the condition of your mouth. If you’re replacing one or two teeth, then our dentists at Hammond Pond Dental Group in Chestnut Hill, MA may recommend a dental bridge or dental implants. However, they will need to inspect your jaw before proceeding with implants.
You’ll also be given the option of having permanent or removable teeth replacements. If you’re considering dentures, you can have implant-supported partials or denture sets that will allow you to have the function of your natural teeth. They will let you eat the foods you love and help preserve your jawbone.
Removable dentures are also a good option for people who want to be able to soak their dentures to ensure they are clean and free from germs. Bridges can be removable or permanent as well, depending on their size and where they are placed in your mouth.
The dentists at Hammond Pond Dental Group will work with you to come up with a solution for replacing your teeth. They can ensure a proper fit, find solutions that fit your lifestyle and give you the full functionality of a beautiful set of teeth.
