Dentures at Dores Dental
Your dentures decision at Dores Dental will depend on several factors, including how many natural teeth you still have and whether you want to be able to remove your new teeth. Dr. Dores will walk you through all the factors you should consider.
The three primary denture options are:
- Partial. If you have some natural teeth remaining, this type can work for you. They can be either fixed – meaning only Dr. Dores can remove them – or removable. A removable denture will snap into place without messy adhesives. A fixed denture is anchored into your mouth with metal attachments. Your natural teeth, dental crowns, or dental implants are used to support fixed partial dentures.
- Full. If all of your teeth are missing, you will likely want complete dentures. Like the partial type, they can be removable or fixed. They usually require adhesive or metal attachments to remain in place.
- Dentures supported by dental implants. We make it possible for either a partial or complete denture to be supported by dental implants. This solution will look and function the most like your natural teeth.
Dentures with a Natural Look
To ensure your denture fits well and look natural, Dr. Dores will carefully measure your jaws. He will also take an impression that he’ll use to create a model. You will try out the model to make sure you are happy with the fit, feel, and look of the denture before the final product is created.
Dr. Dores has proven to be knowledgeable on restorative dentistry and any field in dentistry as he holds membership in the American Dental Association (ADA), Massachusetts Dental Society, and the Valley District Dental Society for his continuing education.
