Family. Friends. A job. A house to live in. A meal on the table – at every meal. The things many of us are thankful for could go on. What you won’t see on that list if you’re missing teeth is your smile. If you’ve lost teeth, need some extracted, or have been wearing uncomfortable dentures that keep falling out, it doesn’t have to be that way. With help from your Peabody, MA dentist, you can get reliable replacement teeth that will give you something to be thankful for, perhaps for the rest of your life.
It’s time to stop passing up the foods you want to eat from the holiday spread. It’s time to call 978-705-6051 and explore your options. Our dentists have decades of experience replacing teeth. Until then, take a look at three tooth replacement options that can fill your smile.
Be Grateful For A Dental Bridge
Fixed bridges are a go-to tooth replacement. Although they usually replace one tooth, they can replace a few in a row. They’re made of several joined dental crowns, and we cement them firmly to your natural teeth so they won’t come out.
Most bridges last a decade or longer. We use high-quality materials to ensure your bridge’s longevity. For maximum life of your bridge, you can choose to attach it to dental implants.
It’s possible to eat like normal again with your bridge. Next year, you won’t have to pick and choose your Thanksgiving foods based on your teeth but rather on your preferences.
Be Grateful For Dentures
If you’re already wearing dentures, the idea of getting another set may not sound like a great idea. If you’re missing many teeth and have been told you need dentures, you might think the same thing. However, our dentures aren’t like the old dentures you might be thinking of. We use sophisticated technology, materials, and techniques to make sure your dentures fit well and look realistic.
You can choose full removable dentures or partials if you’re missing several and not all of your teeth. Many of our patients opt for implant-secured dentures instead. We can attach a lower denture for you with as little as two implants. In some cases, we can adjust your current denture to attach to implants, usually with ball attachments that snap onto the denture.
Either choice – traditional dentures or implant dentures – will give you so many more meal options than you had with no teeth, with many missing teeth, or with poor dentures.
Be Grateful For Dental Implants
Dental implants are generally considered the best tooth replacement. That’s because they offer the greatest durability, stability, functionality, diet options, lifelike appearance, and even oral health benefits. The key behind this is the placement. Implants are small posts that we place under your gums, inside your jawbone. When the bone grows around the implant, it secures it and makes it the ideal foundation for replacement teeth, whether single crowns, bridges, or dentures.
We can replace one tooth or even all the teeth in your mouth, sometimes giving you implants and attaching the replacement teeth in one visit. You could go from toothless to a full smile in as little as one appointment!
The best part is that dental implants usually last a lifetime, especially when they are placed properly and cared for properly. We make that easier for you with 3D imaging that lets us see the most precise details of your mouth. We also use digital planning guides that ensure smooth placement. And when you come for your six-month checkups, we’ll always look at your implants to make sure they’re looking great.
Enjoy Your Thanksgiving Meals & Beyond
We can’t count how many of our patients have come back thanking us for their new teeth. They tell us how they weren’t embarrassed or had to skip their favorite foods at their last holiday gathering. They tell us they smile proudly for the family photo. Some people hadn’t done either of these things for decades and didn’t even think it was possible.
How about you? How about your loved one? Are either of you in need of replacement teeth? Get ready to improve your smile with superior tooth replacement options and enjoy every meal you sit down to. Call Dr. Argeros and his team at 978-705-6051 to get started, or contact Contemporary Dentistry & Implantology online. Like our other patients, we know you’ll be thankful for your new set of teeth!
