Financial District, MA dentist, Dr. Jack B. Share, offers natural-looking and great functioning dentures for people missing some or all of their teeth. A traditional tooth replacement, dentures have been updated with quality, durable materials and are custom-made to stay securely in place for best eating and speaking.
What you need to know
Not your grandfather’s dentures, modern prosthetic teeth fit well and last for years with good oral hygiene and check-ups with Dr.Share and his professional team. Constructed from life-like acrylic resin, dentures replace some or all teeth lost to decay, gum disease, or injury.
Dr. Share offers many kinds of dentures, depending on patient need and preference. They include:
Partial dentures. Comprised of one or more artificial teeth mounted on a light metal frame, a “partial” secures to neighboring teeth with metal clasps. Dr. Share likens a partial to a puzzle piece which fits new teeth into smile gaps.
Immediate dentures. These full prosthetics fit right onto gums immediately after tooth extraction and suturing. They have 2 advantages: the patient leaves the office with a complete set of teeth, and the appliance compresses the healing gum tissue, relieving bleeding and speeding healing. Unfortunately, as gums and bone do heal, they also shrink in size, necessitating re-lining or remaking of this kind of denture for long term proper fit.
Conventional full dentures. These familiar prosthetics are held in place with the mouth’s natural suction or with remaining teeth. They replace a full arch of teeth and last for many years. Over time, they may require denture adhesive as the shape of the alveolar ridge and gum tissue change.
Implant-supported dentures. For people in good overall health and with sufficient jaw bone, these outstanding dentures anchor right to the jaw bone via small titanium screws surgically placed into the patient’s jaw. Over several weeks, the implants fuse to the bone through an amazing natural process dentists call osseointegration.
When the dental implant sites are fully healed, the Boston, MA dentist places a custom-made removable or permanent denture. This kind of denture avoids the slippage and occasional eating and speaking difficulties of conventional dentures. Plus, the titanium implants reinforce jaw bone density and size as the physical forces of biting and chewing effectively exercise the bone.
All denture patients learn new ways to eat and speak, and their facial muscles and speech adjust very quickly. Individuals also enjoy youthful facial appearance and less skin wrinkling and sagging musculature as they wear their Financial District, MA dentures.
