Bring Back Your Smile with Customized Dentures

Whether you’re missing teeth throughout your mouth or missing all the teeth in your top, bottom, or both arches, it can certainly make your day-to-day more difficult. As you likely know, tooth loss affects far more than simply your ability to smile. Eating becomes a chore, rather than something to look forward to, especially if you previously enjoyed chewy or crunchy foods. For these reasons and more, it’s worth considering a denture not just to take back your smile, but your ability to eat and speak with confidence. Give Dr. Hegazi a call to learn more about dentures in Hingham today!

Why Choose Admired Smiles Dental Center for Dentures?

Who is a Good Candidate for Dentures?

It doesn’t matter how severe your tooth loss might be; if you are missing teeth on opposite sides of your mouth or you’re missing all the teeth in a given arch (or even both arches), a denture can be customized to fill the gaps in your mouth and give your smile back. With that said, you will need to complete a thorough exam with Dr. Hegazi to confirm there is no preexisting dental disease. For example, if you have gum disease or tooth decay, these issues will be addressed first. He can also confirm if any extractions need to be completed to make room for your future denture.

Types of Dentures

Modern dentures are more lifelike and comfortable than ever before. Depending on your unique dental needs and concerns, you have options available to you when it comes to your tooth replacement. This includes the following:

Partial Dentures

If you choose a partial denture, it’s because you only need to replace some teeth on opposite sides of your mouth. The restoration fits inside of the mouth similar to that of a puzzle piece, filling gaps left behind to prevent teeth from shifting out of place. The gum-colored based equipped with acrylic or ceramic restorations wraps around existing teeth using metal hooks to remain stable.

Full Dentures

If you need a full denture, it’s because you are missing an entire arch of teeth. A full denture could be used to replace a single or both arches (also known as a complete denture). While they are also made from gum-colored acrylic and either ceramic or acrylic teeth, they stay in place through natural suction to the gums. In the early days of use, it’s common to use denture adhesive as well.

Implant Dentures

Just like the name implies, implant dentures are paired with dental implants to hold a dedicated denture. That means you can expect substantially improved stability and security when using your denture day-to-day. However, you’ll need to have enough bone tissue for the implants to integrate properly.
