Attractive, Functional, & Easy to Care For
Your health depends on your teeth. You need teeth to eat well, so that you can nourish your body and your mind. You need your teeth to speak well, so that you can make your health concerns known and get the care you need. If lost teeth are impacting your quality of life, dentures may help you regain what you’ve lost.
Dr. Teresa Salem understands how important teeth are to her patients and she wants to ensure that you have the dental function you want and need. In our Holbrook, MA dentist’s office, she offers three varieties of dentures: full, partial, and implant-supported. If you need an attractive set of dentures that function well and fit beautifully, schedule a consultation at (781) 995-3334.
Denture technology has improved since the days of your grandmother. Today’s dentures are carefully engineered from modern materials so that they chew and stay put better than ever before. Fitting technology has also improved. Many dentures require little or no adhesive to stay in place. Full dentures let you live a normal, healthy life, even after extensive damage to your teeth and gums.
Partial dentures can be a good option for patients with a sizable gap in one area of the mouth, but healthy teeth in the rest of the mouth. A partial denture will allow you to speak and eat normally while preserving your healthy teeth.
Implant Supported Dentures
Have you seen comedy routines where a character can’t seem to keep his dentures in place? For many people, these ‘comedies’ are actually the stuff of nightmares. After all, what could be more humiliating than teeth shifting as you eat or talk? Implant supported dentures give extra security. Instead of sitting against the gum and staying in place with adhesives, implant-supported dentures attach to tiny screws implanted into the jaw. Dental implants help the denture stay in place and eliminate the risk of it shifting during use. Ask Dr. Salem if implant supported dentures may be right for you.
