Dentures available for seniors in the Wrentham area
Addressing missing teeth is important for patients of all ages. Teeth missing from the smile can affect aesthetics as well as function. When decay, extraction, or injury results in the loss of natural teeth, it is essential for patients in the Wrentham area to visit a dentist who can provide replacement solutions as soon as possible. The three methods of replacing missing teeth include dentures, dental implants, and dental bridges. Speaking with a dentist at Advanced Dental Practices in regards to which one is most appropriate is the first step in being proactive about oral health and wellness.
For seniors who are missing a number of teeth, the best solution may be dentures. Dentures are a wonderful option for patients who are seeking an economical solution. They are the most affordable way to replace one or more teeth within the dental arch. Seniors will find them easy to take care of to extend their lifespan. They can also be adjusted right in the dental office to ensure proper fit at all times.
Dentures may be either full or partial. When patients are missing one or more teeth in the dental arch, it may be expensive to replace them with dental implants. Patients without enough bone may not be considered appropriate candidates for implants, causing them to consider alternative options. This is when solutions such as partial dentures may be suggested. They are fabricated from metal and acrylic framework and snap into place using the teeth as support. If all the teeth within the dental arch are missing, a full denture will be used. It is made of acrylic with false teeth and can be held in place with natural suction, denture adhesives, or even strategically-placed dental implants.
