If you have experienced significant tooth loss, you know the effects that it can have. It can make everyday functions like eating and speaking a real challenge, and it can have a serious effect on your self-esteem and confidence. Our Stoughton dentist at Easton Smiles understands these challenges, and is here to offer you a solution: removable dental prostheses. Also known as dentures or false teeth, removable dental prostheses allow you to get your life back to the way it was before your tooth loss. We offer both partial and full dentures depending on how many teeth you are missing and their location in your mouth.
The first step to getting your own customized removable dental prostheses is to schedule a consultation and evaluation with our Stoughton dentist. During this initial visit, we will explain how the process of getting dentures works and examine your teeth in order to evaluate your tooth loss and plan your future dentures. We will then begin the process of fabricating your customized partial or full dentures. Once the dentures have been completed, you will need to come back to Easton Smiles to have them fitted and so that our Stoughton dentist can show you how to put them in and take them out. We will also instruct you on how to keep them clean and sanitized. When you first wear your dentures, they might feel slightly uncomfortable. You might experience symptoms such as gagging or excess salivation, but they should subside very quickly – usually in the first one to two days. You can always contact our Stoughton dentist if you are having issues with your dentures after that.
Once you become accustomed to wearing your new dentures, you will be amazed at the changes that occur. You will be able to pronounce words properly, chew your food without a challenge, and the shape will return to your face.
