New You Dentures™
Dentures are false teeth meant to replace your natural teeth in the event of their loss. At our office, we provide you with the opportunity to turn to dentures as a means of substituting for any lost teeth. There are two different types to choose from, so we can ultimately decide what’s best for every patient’s unique situation. These two types are referred to as full and partial dentures.
For the first few weeks or even months after the installation of dentures, they may still feel a bit awkward or uncomfortable. Eating and speaking with them takes practice – after all, the muscles of your tongue and cheek need to learn how to operate while holding your dentures in place. Minor irritation and soreness, excessive saliva flow, and the sensation that your tongue doesn’t have enough room are not uncommon. However, if you experience irritation or have other concerns you should contact us.
Dentures are not the only option for missing teeth, just one of the many that our staff may discuss with you.
Dr. Lawlor belongs to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentists and has been specifically trained in cosmetic dentistry. The American Dental Association does not issue special certifications or licenses indicating which dentists are cosmetic dentists and which are not. The dentist you go to for twice-yearly check-ups is probably not going to be the same dentist you go to for cosmetic enhancement. Unless you’re in the qualified hands of Dr. Lawlor!
We bill all dental insurances and accept credit cards or CareCredit as forms of payments. If your treatment plan is more extensive, we’ll work with you to find a pay schedule that’s comfortable for your circumstances. Any questions? We’re here to help!
We get it. You hate the dentist. You’ve been trained to loathe the very word and everything associated with it. That’s exactly what inspired us to rethink the dental experience, backed by decades of insights and know-how. Meet Maine Dentistry–our space feels both familiar and inviting, our crew seriously knows their stuff, and our approach promotes long-term luster over emergency care.
