Chicopee area dentist explains
dentures

Patients who have lost teeth may suffer the consequences if they do not address the issue
as soon as possible. When teeth are missing, the existing teeth may shift. This might
require extensive cosmetic work to fix. It can also reduce the efficiency of chewing,
and speaking, as well as affect the appearance of the smile. Dr. Kanorwalla, of Vanguard Dental in the Chicopee area, provides dentures, which can help in addressing these concerns.

There are two primary types of dentures, full or partial. Full dentures are used to replace an entire arch of missing teeth. They can be held in place with suction, dental adhesives, or the placement of several dental implants to provide stability. They are made of high quality acrylics and are an affordable option for patients seeking a restorative treatment that won’t break the bank.

Another type of denture commonly used by patients missing one or more teeth is partial dentures. Using a metal and acrylic framework, partial dentures snap into place using the existing teeth as an anchor. A false tooth rests in the area of need, and it provides patients with a restored smile quickly and easily. This restoration is removable, making it easy for cleaning and care. These may need adjustments over time, and they should be brought to the dentist at every appointment for examination and adjustments when necessary.

Dentures are a fast and affordable way to address missing teeth, and may be considered over alternative solutions such as dental bridges and dental implants. Patients who do not have enough bone for the placement of implants or those who want a removable apparatus may prefer partial or full dentures.
