Tooth loss can be a traumatic experience for anyone. Whether from disease or simply age, the
individual may be left feeling like a piece of themselves is missing. The loss of confidence and
self-esteem can be overwhelming. At Vanguard Dental, we're committed to restoring the smiles of
individuals in Springfield, MA. With both partial and full denture options, patients can rest assured that
they will leave our office feeling like their former self in no time.
The first type of denture is a partial replacement. Removable partial dentures are an excellent and affordable option for patients who still have some natural teeth remaining. Replacement teeth are attached to a gum-colored base and are connected by a metal framework, which keeps the denture in place. Much like a retainer, they snap in and out of the mouth, making them easy to care for and clean.
The other type of tooth replacement is a complete or full denture. Complete dentures are ideal for patients who have an entire arch of teeth missing. They are typically composed of acrylic resin, a high quality plastic, and are designed to look like natural teeth. Patients may then consider dental implants to keep the dentures in place, or they can use dental adhesives.
Two different types of full dentures are available: immediate and conventional. Immediate dentures are placed immediately after the teeth have been extracted. Conventional dentures are made after the teeth have been removed and are typically ready for placement in the mouth 8-12 weeks post tooth removal. Dr. Kanorwalla and her team will measure and make models of the jaw during a preliminary visit. One advantage to immediate dentures is the patient does not have to be without teeth during the healing process. If you are unsure of whether conventional or immediate dentures are the right option for you, Dr. Kanorwalla is happy to discuss both options with you and help you decide which will be best for your situation and lifestyle.
At Vanguard Dental, returning patients' smile to their former brilliance is a truly rewarding experience. Cosmetic restorations such as full and partial dentures allow us to renew our patients' confidence and help them feel great again about their appearance. Your journey to a renewed smile is just a phone call away. Call Dr. Kanorwalla at 413-543-2555 to schedule your consultation appointment in Springfield, MA today.
