Dentures are a good option if you need a replacement for missing teeth. Removable dentures can renew the appearance of your smile and make it easier to speak and eat with full confidence. Dr. Peter Russo can provide either full or partial removable dentures for patients in South Yarmouth, MA. Full dentures can replace all the teeth in your upper arch, lower arch, or both, while partial dentures leave some of your natural teeth to act as support. At Bass River Dental, we will help you decide whether full or partial dentures are best for your needs, and then have them custom made to look natural. Schedule a consultation at our state-of-the-art facility to learn more about dentures.
Complete or partial removable dentures require adhesives or pastes to remain in place, but implant-supported dentures are anchored with titanium posts in your jaw in order to fit secure and stable. This ensures that the implant dentures will not slip or move out of place, even when eating or speaking. With more security and support, patients with implant-supported dentures can feel confident that their dentures will remain in place. Implant-supported dentures look great and can be treated just like natural teeth. At Bass River Dental, South Yarmouth patients can get custom implant dentures that look natural and feel comfortable.
"After more than 6 months, Aspen Dental could not make my dentures fit. I fired them and chose the closest dentist to my home. It was Bass River.... after going toothless for so long and making so many trips to Aspen for adjustments that did nothing, I had lost hope. Dr Pete and crew not only managed to make my dentures wearable but they laugh at my jokes too! Thanks"- M.S. / Google / May 01, 2021
Best Candidates for Dentures
You may be an ideal candidate for dentures if you have suffered the loss of many teeth, but still have healthy gums and a strong jawbone. If you have natural teeth, these may either be extracted for a full denture or kept with a partial denture. During your consultation, our dental professionals will examine your mouth and discuss your options based on your needs and budget.
What To Expect
If needed, any necessary teeth will be extracted before taking oral impressions, which will be used to make your custom dentures. Partial dentures will be shaded to match your natural teeth for a seamless appearance. Once your dentures are crafted, the fit will be adjusted so they are comfortable and secure. A member of our team will also go over the best way to care for your new dentures.
It may take some time before your new dentures feel comfortable and natural, but it should eventually be easier to eat and speak normally. If your dentures feel loose, return to Bass River Dental to have your dentures re-adjusted. At home, you will need to keep your dentures clean by brushing them twice a day. When you remove your dentures, they should be soaked so they do not dry out. Continue to schedule exams and cleanings at Bass River Dental so the wear and fit of your dentures and the health of your jaw and gums can be evaluated. We will let you know if you need to have your dentures repaired or replaced but with proper care, your dentures should last for many years.
If you have dental insurance, part of the cost of your dentures will typically be covered. Our office will contact your insurance company to determine your exact coverage and out-of-pocket expenses. During your consultation, your treatment plan will be customized so your dentures fit both your needs and budget. To help make your denture affordable whether you have dental insurance or not, Bass River Dental accepts many forms of payment, including medical financing.
