Do you want to replace missing teeth but would prefer to avoid costly, invasive procedures? Then our gentle dentists, Dr. Bansal, Dr. Chawla, and Dr. Jun, may recommend that you consider dentures. Dentures are removable, prosthetic dental devices used to restore your smile and boost your self-confidence and health. We offer many different types of dentures in Brockton, Massachusetts, based on your individual needs and which teeth are missing.
There are three main types of dentures available: full dentures, partial dentures, and immediate dentures. Full dentures are shaped like horseshoes and are used to replace all of the teeth in your upper or lower dental arch or both. Partial dentures work in a similar fashion, but there must be some natural teeth remaining in your smile in order for partial dentures to be used. Immediate dentures are prepared and ready to go the minute your teeth are removed, so you never have to go a moment without a full, beautiful smile.
There are many advantages to using dentures. Dentures are easy to make and do not require drilling, surgeries, or shots. Dentures are affordable when compared to other tooth replacement options and can also be adjusted as your smile changes. If you are considering dentures to restore your smile, please contact Dr. Bansal and Dr. Jun, our dentists at Brockton Dental and Orthodontics. We would be happy to schedule a consultation and start you on the road to a more complete, healthier smile.
Denture are acrylic teeth attached to a pink base that are placed in the mouth to replace a full arch of missing teeth. The first step to getting a denture is having an impression taken of your mouth. This impression is then sent to a dental lab where a plaster model of your mouth is made.
From this plaster model, a custom impression tray is created. This tray is then used to make a more accurate impression of the contours of your arch. The dental lab uses this second impression to make a more precise plaster model of your mouth. Using this new plaster model, a wax model is created. This wax model will then be fitted in your mouth in order to establish a relationship between you upper and lower jaw and determine where the teeth will be placed. Your wax model is then sent back to the lab to have teeth added. With the teeth in place, your wax model is trial – fitted in your mouth to see that your bite is properly aligned. Once the model fits well, the denture can be manufactured at the dental lab. After this process is complete, your denture will be fit in your mouth and any final adjustment will be made.
