There are a variety of reasons that people lose teeth during their lifetime, the most common being because of periodontal disease or tooth decay. Even losing just a couple of teeth can affect both your appearance, and also your oral health. When teeth are missing, there is less support for the cheeks and lips, which can cause facial muscles to sag, which makes eating and speaking more difficult.
The solution is to replace those lost teeth with dentures. The doctors at Dental Care Marlboro can determine the best course of action for each patient’s specific needs, and provide the most comfortable and affordable dentures in Marlboro, New Jersey.
Complete Dentures — These are worn by patients who are missing all of their upper or lower teeth. These sit on top of the gums, and are typically placed within two to three months after the teeth have been removed or extracted.
Partial Dentures — When not all of the patient’s teeth are missing and only some need to be replaced, this is the best solution. A pink-colored base is attached to a metal piece, and those two pieces hold the denture in the mouth, making them removable and convenient.
If you’re in need of dentures of any kind, call our Marlboro, New Jersey, office today and we’ll work with your personal situation to determine the best plan of treatment.
