Obtain quality dentures “near me” with Boston, MA dentist
Dentures are one of the most popular methods of tooth replacement available today. Anjum A. Ansari, D.M.D. and her team in Boston, MA provide quality restorations such as dentures to patients who are ready to replace one or more teeth.
What types of dentures are available?
There are several varieties of dentures that are used in restorative dentistry. Below are the three primary types available with Anjum A. Ansari, D.M.D.:
- Partial denture – patients missing one or several teeth within the dental arch might want to ask about a partial denture. A partial denture is fabricated with a metal framework and false teeth. The appliance is made to fit snug within the arch, using the surrounding teeth for support to improve functionality. A partial denture can be removed for easy cleaning and can be adjusted as needed.
- Cosmetic full denture – the full denture is the more common type patients think of when they speak about dentures. A full denture is used to replace all the teeth in the dental arch. It is made of high-quality acrylic and includes false teeth and gums. The full denture is held in place with natural suction or denture adhesives available over the counter at local drugstores. This is the most economical way for patients to replace all the teeth in the dental arch.
- Implant-retained denture – for patients who want better functionality and less “muss and fuss” than a traditional full denture, an implant-retained denture may be desirable. This is a denture that is more conservative than a full denture and is held in place with several dental implants across the arch. The implants provide a sturdy foundation for the denture to ensure it fits and functions properly. Patients who have been unhappy with traditional full dentures might consider upgrading to an implant-retained denture.
