Why choose dentures?

Dentures are popular as a tooth replacement option for many reasons. They are versatile and can be tailored to fit your specific needs. These appliances:

  • Improve the appearance of your smile
  • Allow you to eat your favorite foods as normal and speak with confidence
  • Prevent facial sagging caused by missing teeth
  • Can be used as a temporary or long-lasting treatment for tooth loss

What are my options for dentures?

Dr. Zaknoun offers both removable and implant-supported dentures at Cape Cod Dental in Wareham, MA. Removable dentures are held in the mouth with natural suction or a special dental adhesive. They can be taken out for cleaning and sleeping. On the other hand, implant-supported dentures are anchored to implants, providing a secure fit and preventing issues like bone loss in the jaw.

Partial dentures are also available for people who are missing multiple teeth but have some remaining natural teeth. These dentures are made to fit around the existing teeth and fill in the gaps. On the other hand, if you are missing all of your teeth, full dentures can be custom-made to fit your smile.

How do dentures feel?

Some people associate dentures with an "unnatural" feeling in the mouth. However, with new advancements in dental technology, dentures are now more comfortable than ever before. It may take some time to adjust to the feeling of dentures, but they should not cause pain.

At Cape Cod Dental, we start the tooth replacement process by taking impressions and measurements of your mouth to ensure a proper fit. We also use high-grade materials to create realistic-looking teeth that match your smile. Our attention to detail and commitment to patient comfort make our dentures feel as close to natural teeth as possible.

Caring for your dentures

Proper maintenance and cleaning are important if you want your dentures to last a long time. Here are a few tips for caring for your dentures:

  • Brush your dentures with a soft-bristled brush and non-abrasive toothpaste
  • Handle your dentures with care and try not to bend them out of shape
  • Soak your dentures in a cleaner or water to keep them moist and prevent warping
  • Rinse your dentures regularly to remove food particles and debris
  • Visit Dr. Zaknoun regularly for dental check-ups and adjustments
