In the United States, tooth loss is the leading cause of gum disease among adults ages 65 and older. Complete tooth loss affects 26 percent of adults between ages 65 and 74. In other countries, the percentage is higher. Understanding the concern of tooth loss, the caring team at Four Corners Dental Care in Woburn offers treatments to restore health, function, and beauty to the smile. Among our treatments, we offer removable full dentures.
Understanding the effects of tooth loss
The stimulus necessary to keep the bone healthy disappears when there is complete tooth loss. Eventually the bone resorbs or melts away. Removable full dentures are designed to replace an entire dental arch or all of the teeth. In addition to replacing the teeth, dentures provide support to the surrounding bone and gum tissue. Therefore, full dentures are a viable option for improving the appearance after complete tooth loss.
Restoring the smile
Dentures are used to improve the ability to bite properly and chew efficiently. Our dentures are designed to look and feel as natural as possible. With our customized dentures, patients can count on smiling more confidently.
We take our time to ensure that dentures fit precisely by determining where each tooth should be placed in the full dentures, and how the upper and lower teeth should line up in relation to one other. We take photos to help guide the patient through the process. X-rays are taken to examine the soft tissue and jawbone. We ask about the patient’s goals and customize the ideal smile based on his or her desires.
