Dentures Options and Process in Chelmsford, MA
There are two types of dentures, complete and partial. Complete or full dentures are used when all of the natural teeth are removed from the mouth. There are two types of full dentures:
- Conventional Full Dentures – This is when all of the natural teeth are removed and the mouth tissue is given time to heal before the dentures are put in. It could take a few months for the gum tissue to heal and during this time, you would be without teeth.
- Immediate Full Dentures – Before natural teeth are removed, we take measurements and have dentures fitted for your mouth. Once the teeth have been removed, dentures are immediately placed. While you do not have to spend any time without teeth, follow up visits and adjustments are needed as your mouth heals. Once your jaw bone is fully healed, your dentures will need to be tightened.
Partial dentures are another option when natural teeth remain. This is similar to a bridge but is not a permanent fix. This consists of replacement teeth attached to gum colored plastic base that is held in place in your mouth. If you are choosing a fixed partial denture, the denture is cemented into place using adjacent teeth for support.

Our Happy Patients
I am a new customer to the dental practice but am very pleased with the level of care that I have a received so far. My hygienist, Stephanie, was very thorough (and gentile) during the cleaning/exam and went above and beyond to assist me with my insurance coverage. 5/5 would recommend to anyone in search of a new dentist!
I have been going to this practice close to 20 years. There was a different doctor before however even the new team is great. No complains over any of their treatments or recommendations.
