If you need dental implants, you may want to contemplate dentures as an alternative. The technology behind this form of cosmetic dentistry has advanced greatly in the past decade, and is far more effective and comfortable than it has ever been. Your Worcester cosmetic dentist
at Pearla Dental can have you on your way to a better smile and improved oral health by outfitting you with the perfect dentures to meet your needs.
Dentures in Worcester
For patients suffering from missing teeth, partial dentures can be the perfect fit to give you your smile back. A partial denture can be used even if just one of your teeth remain in your jaw. Your new set of replacement teeth can be attached to the remaining teeth through either metal frame work or natural looking precision attachments. Contrary to popular belief, eating food is actually more enjoyable with dentures, as the replaced missing teeth makes it much easier to chew and speak than your mouth could previously do without them. The Worcester cosmetic dentists
at Pearla Dental recommend that you begin by eating foods cut into small pieces until you are completely adjusted to the feeling of your partial dentures.
Full dentures are the traditional removable replacement teeth that the general public is knowledgeable about, however, few know of the strides this technology has made in the past decade. Today you can still enjoy the same foods you normally would. Once you adjust to the feel and function of your new dentures, you will actually find that these replacement teeth aid you in chewing and speaking clearly far better that your mouth could never accomplish without replacement teeth. These dentures, also known as removable bridges, can be made of gold and other metal alloys, though porcelain is the number one choice of patients and dentists alike. Porcelain can be made to resemble the look of your natural teeth, and best of all, resists stains from tea, coffee, and smoking.
The process of fitting, fabricating, and selecting the right dentures for you takes precision and knowledge of the latest orthodontic technologies, so it is best to visit our Worcester cosmetic dentist
at Pearla Dental. Dentures require a month to be fabricated, and generally five appointments will need to be made with your orthodontist throughout the process, which consists of various molds and a “try-in” made of wax. The “try-in” allows us to be sure that your new dentures will be a perfect fit before the final casting is made. At Pearla Dental, our staff is as brilliant as they are welcoming. We understand the needs and concerns of our clients, and are ready to work with you to find the dentures that are the right fit for your lifestyle.
