Dentures in Melrose, MA
Looking for dentures that fit your lifestyle? At Exquisite Dentistry, we understand having a beautiful, confident, functional smile is important for all patients. Restoring your smile with high-quality dentures gives you control over your life again. Offering top dentures and partial dentures solutions in Melrose, MA and beyond, Dr. Talluri and his team are proud to help our patients regain their confident smiles.
We offer the following denture systems at Exquisite Dentistry:
Traditional dentures are made after the teeth have been removed and the tissue has healed (usually about 6 months after the last tooth was removed).
Immediate dentures are delivered to the patient the same day the teeth are removed. They often require adjustments over the first several months of use and are usually relined after the tissue has healed (typically 6-12 months after the dental extraction).
Removable partial dentures are great when you need an affordable option to help replace several missing teeth in either the upper or lower arch. A partial has replacement teeth connected to a gum-colored plastic base that often has a cast metal framework. Partial dentures can help keep your other teeth from shifting, allow you to speak and eat better, and help support your cheeks and lips so your face does not appear older and sunken in.
Cast Metal Partial Dentures
Cast Metal Partial Dentures slide over your existing teeth to help fill any gaps you may have. At Exquisite Dentistry, cast metal partial dentures are custom-made by expertly trained technicians to fit securely in place and remain highly durable.
Flexible Base Partial Dentures
Flexible Base Partial Dentures (also called Valplast partials) use a state-of-the-art technology to create a lightweight, metal-free partial denture. Each appliance is handcrafted to help ensure a natural look and feel with increased flexibility and comfort.
How Do I Care for My Dentures?
Dr. Talluri and his team are here to help you care for your dentures and ensure they last for years to come! Dentures and partials require daily maintenance in order to keep them clean and looking nice for years to come. If you do not properly care for your denture or partial it can harbor bacteria and become permanently stained. Our team recommends the following denture care tips:
- Be careful when cleaning your denture or partial in the sink. Setting out a folded towel or filling the sink with water prior to handling them can help prevent your dentures from breaking if you accidentally drop them.
- Utilize a mild cleanser to help clean your denture or partial. Many cleaners are too abrasive and can damage your appliance. We recommend you always ask your dentist what they recommend or check for the American Dental Association (ADA) seal of approval when determining which products to use.
- Your dentures need to be kept moist when you are not wearing them. We recommend you keep them in a cleaning solution or water to help prevent them drying out or losing their shape.
Even if you have a complete set of dentures (top and bottom), it is very important that you clean your tongue and gums daily and schedule regular dental checkups to ensure that your smile stays healthy.
How Much Do Dentures Cost?
Your total dentures cost can vary depending on a few factors, such as the type of dentures selected, the materials used, and any additional services that may be required.
The cost of dentures may not be covered by dental insurance, or may only be partially covered. We recommend that you check with your specific insurance provider to see if you have coverage for dentures. At Exquisite Dentistry, we offer financing options which spread out your payments and help fit dentures into your budget.
