Dentures sitting in a glass full of water at Chicopee dentist of Our Dentist.Losing your teeth affects every aspect of your life. And, the more teeth you lose, the greater the effects. When you suffer tooth loss, basic functions like eating and speaking become incredibly challenging. Your digestion and nutrition suffer. The quality of your smile, and your confidence, are also significantly impacted. Replacing missing teeth is essential for restoring the functions of those teeth and your quality of life. At Our Dentist, we can replace an entire arch of teeth, or larger sections of teeth, with dentures.

What Causes Tooth Loss?

Tooth loss can be caused by many different issues. Common causes of tooth loss include
•  Gum disease. This is actually the leading cause of tooth loss.
•  Facial trauma, which can result from a car accident, a fall, a sports related injury, or a fight.
•  Severe tooth decay.
•  Bruxism.

Full Dentures

When most people think of dentures, they typically think of full dentures. Full dentures are the traditional treatment for replacing an entire arch of missing teeth. They have been in use for hundreds of years, although they have undergone many improvements over the years. The full dentures offered today consist of acrylic resin teeth set into a rigid acrylic base. They are designed to look much more natural, which can greatly help to improve the aesthetics of your smile and boost your confidence. A full denture is created from an impression of your mouth. The base sits directly on your gums, and the soft tissue provides the necessary support for your replacement teeth.

Partial Dentures

A partial denture is similar in design to a full denture, except that this removable restoration is made to replace a section of missing teeth. This allows all of the healthy teeth in the arch to remain in place rather than unnecessarily extracting them. Like a full denture, a partial denture consists of acrylic resin teeth set in an acrylic base. This type of restoration also has metal clasps, which help to anchor the denture into place on your healthy teeth. This aids in providing additional support.

Implant Supported Dentures

Today, you have additional options when it comes to replacing an arch of missing teeth. In addition to your traditional options, we also provide dental implants. Dental implants use small titanium posts, which are surgically placed into your jawbone. Your bone fuses to the posts, integrating them into your jaw so that they become stable roots that provide support for your replacement teeth.

Types of Implant Supported Dentures

There are different types of implant supported dentures that can be used to replace your arch of missing teeth. These options include
•  Fixed implanted supported dentures. A fixed implant supported denture is the standard implant supported denture. This treatment uses 6 to 8 implant posts to support your replacement teeth.
•  Bar retained implant supported dentures. This treatment is used when you have lost bone mass in your jaw and it is unable to support a fixed implant supported denture. This treatment uses 4 to 6 posts, and a titanium bar is attached to the posts. Your teeth clip into place on the bar and can be removed for cleaning.
•  All on 4 Treatment Concept. All on 4 is a type of fixed implant supported denture that is used when you lack the bone mass necessary for supporting 6 to 8 posts. This treatment uses only 4 posts, which are placed specifically within your jawbone to maximize contact between the posts and your jaw. This helps to maximize fusion for optimal support.
•  Implant retained dentures. Implant retained dentures are traditional dentures that are anchored in place with implants. This treatment is common in the lower jaw, where a denture is more likely to come loose. The denture snaps into place on the implant posts. The teeth need to be removed nightly for cleaning.
•  Implant supported bridges. An implant supported bridge is one that replaces a section of missing teeth, taking the place of a partial denture.

When faced with tooth, replacing those teeth is essential for restoring the functions of your missing teeth, as well as your quality of life. For more information on your denture options, and to find out which treatment is right for you, call Our Dentist today at (413) 217-4455.
