You are dealing with significant tooth loss and you are ready to say goodbye to those ugly gaps in your smile but you’re not sure the best approach for doing this. Our Frederick, MD, dentists, Dr. Dave Verma and Dr. Arpana Verma, may be able to provide you with a simple and easy tooth replacement solution.

When most people think about dentures they often think that this is a restoration designed only for older individuals when, in essence, anyone dealing with significant tooth loss could benefit from these oral prosthetics. Dentures could be right for people of all ages who are dealing with tooth loss. You may want to consider dentures if:

  • You want to replace several or all of your missing teeth
  • You don’t want to undergo surgery
  • You want to get your new smile quickly
  • You are on a budget and want to be financially smart about your dental work
  • You want to restore your smile so that chewing and speaking are restored
  • You have unhealthy damaged teeth that need to be extracted

Partial vs. Full Dentures

Which kind of dentures is right for you? When you come in for a consultation our Frederick family dentists will be able to determine the best restoration to improve your smile and your oral health. If you still have some healthy teeth remaining then partial dentures will be all you require. Of course, if you have complete tooth loss or the remaining teeth are irreparable and need to be extracted, then full dentures will be the best option.

While dentures have certainly become better over the years thanks to advancements in dental technology, some people still find themselves a bit disappointed by them. Even though dentures are meant to give you artificial teeth they won’t function in much the same way as real teeth. You may find that dentures sometimes move or shift around in your mouth. You may also find that certain foods are still a bit difficult to eat.

If you still aren’t satisfied with your dentures after giving yourself some time to get used to them then you may want to consider getting dental implants to stabilize your dentures and hold them in place.

If you are looking to get affordable, quality dentures in Frederick, MD, then it’s time to allow the dental experts at Frederick Dental Group to create a beautiful new smile for you.
