Fix Your Smile with Dentures in Fitchburg, MA
Like other smile restoration treatments and dental technology, dentures have vastly improved and been modernized in the last few decades to provide maximum function, comfort, and aesthetic improvements to your smile whether you are 30 or 60. Despite increased awareness about the dangers of gum disease, tooth loss remains a significant problem among American adults. According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), over 40 million American adults are missing all of their natural teeth. And it's not just seniors that have to worry about tooth loss. Gum disease and accidents can (and do) affect young adults of all ages as well.
Different Denture Styles
Dentures are available as a temporary or permanent solution, and there are several options designed for full or partial tooth loss. Some people choose dentures to wear for a short time following extractions or tooth loss while they wait for a permanent pair or other restoration like dental implants (immediate dentures). Partial dentures help to keep the teeth from shifting and can be used in lieu of crowns and bridgework if you are missing a few teeth. Other denture options include:
- Complete (full) dentures
- Implant supported dentures
- Custom dentures
- Snap-in dentures
