Full & Partial Dentures From Your Dentists in Somerville
Custom-made prosthetic devices that are used to replace one or more missing teeth, at Middlecoff Dental Group in Somerville, we know that dentures can serve as an excellent option for restoring both confidence and function to a patient's smile.
What types of dentures are available and how are they made?
There are two main types of dentures: full and partial. Full dentures are used to replace all the teeth in an arch while partial dentures are used to replace one, two, or many teeth.
Dentures are made from either acrylic or porcelain and are customized to match a patient's natural tooth color. And while full dentures are often removable, partial dentures are usually held in place with metal clasps that attach to the natural teeth.
Is everyone a candidate for dentures?
In most circumstances, yes. However, there are some medical conditions that could affect a person's ability to wear dentures, so it's always best to consult with a dental professional to determine if dentures are right for you.
How long do dentures last and how should they be cared for?
Full and partial dentures can last for many years with proper care. It's important to brush them daily, just as you would your natural teeth, and to soak them in a cleaning solution overnight.
Patients should also undergo regular checkups to ensure that their gums and any remaining teeth are healthy.
