Although dental implants have become the first choice for tooth replacement, there are still many situations where dentures are the best option to replace a patient’s missing teeth. Baltimore dentist Dr. Ed Lazer specializes in adult dentistry and offers a variety of treatment options for patients needing new dentures or replacing poor fitting dentures.
Immediate dentures, or temporary dentures, can be used when a patient has had multiple tooth extractions and needs time for the jaw bone to heal and contract. Once this has occurred, Dr. Lazer can fit the patient for a permanent solution, recommending the treatment that will offer the best overall result. Options can include:
- Implant secured dentures
- AvaDent dentures
- No-Metal partial dentures
Dr. Lazer will meet with patients, perform a thorough exam and offer a treatment plan that suits their oral health needs, personal cosmetic goals and their budget.
For patients who have ill fitting dentures or damaged dentures, Dr. Lazer offers denture repair as well as re-lining to improve the fit and comfort of dentures. Maintaining the fit of oral appliances, such as dentures, is important for overall health and well being: patients with poor fitting dentures or damaged dentures are more likely to limit their diet and avoid social situations if speaking is compromised as well.
