Dentures Quincy MA
Complete and partial dentures are removable mouth appliances that replace missing teeth. Complete dentures are full teeth replacement. Whereas, partial dentures are for patients who are missing some teeth. Patients choose dentures over other teeth replacement options due to affordability. Replacing more than one tooth can be costly. Dentures maintain facial structure and allow patients to chew and speak clearly. Let us know if you have more than one missing tooth. We can narrow your teeth replacement options that best fit your needs and budget.
How should I care for my dentures?
Dentures, in general, need proper maintenance for longevity and your oral health. Be gentle with your dentures and brush them twice a day. Floss once a day and store them in water or denture solution when not in use. Take care of your mouth as well. Remove bacteria buildup by cleaning your gums, cheeks, tongue, and palate with a soft bristled toothbrush. Routine care helps prevent mouth sores and bad breath.
If I have complete dentures, do I still need to visit the dentist?
