Your jaws, gums, and even teeth naturally weaken over time. By the time the average United States citizen reaches the age of 50, the American Dental Association (ADA) estimates that they will have lost 12 teeth. If this sounds like you, or even if you are younger and are missing many teeth, then Newton Wellesley Dental Partners in Newton, MA has a solution–partials and dentures.
These convenient appliances help you eat and chew normally, and can stave off future health problems like jawbone thinning. If they sound like something that you would be interested in, visit our state-of-the-art office today.
Dentures are a form of dental appliance worn by individuals who are missing all of their teeth. The appliance has two separate sections, with one piece for the upper jaw and the other for the lower. Each section consists of synthetic teeth that are attached to a gum-colored base that sits against your natural gums and fits comfortably.
Dentures replace missing teeth and can be used to assist in activities like eating, chewing, and supporting the soft tissues of your face. They can be temporary or permanent. Temporary models can be taken in and out at night, while permanent ones are affixed to your jawbone.
Partials are worn by individuals who still have some of their natural teeth. Partials are a comfortable appliance similar to dentures, but with gaps between the synthetic teeth that allow you to use your natural ones with ease. Unlike dentures, partials are only temporary, meaning you can take them in and out to take care of your teeth and sleep.
Partials are made from the same materials as dentures and are just as durable and effective.
