Move On From Dentures That No Longer Feel Comfortable

While your dentures may have felt secure and comfortable throughout the day when you first received them, you may worry because they no longer feel as stable as they used to. Loose or insecure dentures can frustrate you because they can make speaking and eating difficult, and because they leave you worried about potential embarrassment during the day. People often grow less comfortable with their dentures because of jawbone deterioration, which occurs gradually after you lose teeth. With dental implant-held dentures, or hybrid dentures, you can preserve your jawbone density and have an easier time feeling secure with your restoration during the day. Our Shrewsbury, MA dentist’s office is prepared to help you make the switch to implant-held dentures so that you can eat, smile, and speak with more confidence! (more…)

How Do Implants Fit Into Plans To Replace Lost Teeth?

Tooth loss can have a significant impact on a person’s smile and oral health, making it difficult for people to adjust to. Fortunately, a modern approach to prosthetic dental work can address both the cosmetic effect of tooth loss and the negative change in your ability to bite and chew food. With the support of a dental implant, a restoration can be trusted to hold up against years of pressure created by biting and chewing, which means you can maintain a more comfortable dental function. It can even provide long-term protection for your jaw by preventing the deterioration of bone tissue that can occur when tooth loss has occurred. Our Shrewsbury/Grafton, MA area dentist’s office has experience helping patients recover from tooth loss, and we can take on both isolated tooth loss issues as well as more severe losses. (more…)

Chipped, Worn, Or Flattened Teeth? Veneers Can Help!

A smile that used to appear flawless can gradually wear down over time and become less symmetrical while appearing less healthy. Some wear and tear can be a natural consequence of friction from biting and chewing food through the years.

Fortunately, cosmetic dental services provided at our Shrewsbury/Grafton, MA dentist’s office can be effective against gradual wear and tear. With porcelain veneers, we can restore the appearance of your smile by placing thin, custom restorations on the fronts of teeth to change their shape, size, and color! (more…)

What You Gain By Making The Switch To Implant-Held Dentures

Removable dentures are custom-made because your restoration will need to be the right shape and size to fit comfortably. Unfortunately, even a carefully made denture can become less comfortable as time passes. This occurs because tooth loss leads to a loss of density in your jawbone. As the bone deteriorates, the denture can start to feel less supported, and can be more prone to slipping! If you have a denture that no longer feels comfortable, or if you are hoping to avoid this issue when receiving your first denture, talk to your Shrewsbury/Grafton, MA dentist’s office about implant-held dentures. With dentures held in place with dental implants, you can have more bite support, feel more comfortable with your restoration, and avoid issues with jawbone deterioration! (more…)
