Do you have missing teeth that impact your appearance and lifestyle? If so, you may benefit from our custom-made dentures in Belmont. Dr. David Salibian offers a variety of denture options to treat a wide range of cases. Before committing to your treatment, we’ve included some important information you may be curious about! Read on to learn more about our dentures and whether or not they are right for you.
We offer different types of dentures to treat all patterns of tooth loss:
If you’re missing part of your smile or random teeth throughout your mouth, Dr. Salibian can use a partial denture to complete your grin like missing pieces to a puzzle. A partial denture is typically made up of a gum-colored base that is attached to artificial teeth, held in place using metal clasps.
For those missing all or most of their teeth, we may recommend a full denture. This is a gum-colored based attached to artificial teeth that are typically made of durable resin. The prosthesis rests on top of the gums, relying on suction and denture adhesive to stay in place.
This option combines dentures and dental implants to provide the most stable full smile replacement available. Using an average of 4 dental implants that are placed in the jawbone as supports, we can mount a denture on top. This solution looks and feels like a natural smile because dental implants replace teeth from the roots up.
Because no two smiles are the same, the only way to know if you’re a good candidate for dentures is to visit our office for a consultation with Dr. Salibian. He will carefully examine your mouth and the condition of your overall health before recommending a personalized treatment plan. Keep in mind that any preexisting issues must be corrected before getting dentures. Plus, you may need tooth extractions in the case of full or implant-retained dentures. Usually, denture candidates are those who are missing teeth, committed to oral health/denture maintenance, and ready to enjoy a full set of teeth. To schedule an appointment, don’t hesitate to contact our office!
The key to long lasting and successful dentures is how well you maintain them. Be sure to remove them every night, soaking your prosthesis in denture solution or water. This shakes loose plaque and bacteria that build up throughout the day. While you may not have natural teeth, it’s vital to brush your gums and tongue to prevent disease and infection. You can also use a denture cleaner or soft-bristled toothbrush to gently clean your artificial smile, keeping it nice and beautiful. By following these steps as well as visiting our office regularly, you will enjoy your dentures for 5 to 7 years!
Dentures are a highly personalized product, so the cost of your tooth replacement will largely vary from someone else’s. Everything from the number of teeth Dr. Salibian needs to replace to the materials used to fabricate your prosthesis will incur their own unique costs. Our office is happy to break them down for you in more detail during your next appointment.
Getting dentures in Belmont for the first time is quite the adjustment at first.
