If you’re missing teeth, you may experience significant functional and social difficulties. With no teeth, you’re usually limited to a diet of soft foods, because chewing anything isn’t really an option. Then there’s the embarrassment. Since your smile is generally the first feature other people notice about you, those gaps in your smile can make you feel self-conscious. On top of that, missing teeth can cause you to slur your words, making you feel insecure about speaking with others. The solution to all of these has been around for many years. However, today’s dentures have significant advantages over earlier types. Now you can get them customized to your specifications for a comfortable fit. Further, they look more like natural teeth than ever before. Dentures are also an economical alternative to dental implants for some patients. Schedule a consultation here in our Newburyport, MA office to see if dentures are the right treatment option for you.

Options to Suit Your Needs
You can receive dentures whether you’re missing a single tooth or all of them. When you still have some healthy teeth, partial dentures will fill in the gaps and prevent those remaining teeth from shifting, giving you a complete, healthy smile once again. If decay, trauma, heredity or other factors have caused you to lose all of your teeth, full dentures can allow you to return to enjoying the benefits of an entire set of teeth. Upper and lower dentures are custom-fitted over your gums. If you want added stability, the team here at Newburyport Family Dental can provide you with implant supported dentures. These are secured to your jawbone by implant posts and will stay firmly in place without the use of any adhesives. Request more details today!
