Custom dentures can be a great choice if you want to replace several or an entire arch of missing teeth. Dentures can restore your smile and help you eat and speak with more confidence. Our team of experienced, board-certified dentists can create either partial or full removable dentures for patients in West Bridgewater, MA. Full dentures replace your entire lower arch, upper arch, or both while partial dentures replace several missing teeth and use your remaining teeth as support. At West Bridgewater Dental, we can help you determine whether partial or full dentures fit your goals and custom-create your dentures for a beautiful, confident smile. Make an appointment with our team today for more information on removable dentures.
"Highly recommend. I've been a patient of Dr. Richard Harrison for 25 years. The practice has recently grown to include several new dentists as Dr. Harrison has reduced his hours and heads towards retirement. Everyone I have seen (dentists/hygienists) has been excellent. The practice is immaculate."- S.D. / Google / Nov 23, 2019

"I love this dentist office, and I’ve been going here for most of my life! They are always so kind, friendly, and helpful. I’ve had a great experience with Dr. Harrison and Dr. Harelick! The whole hygienist staff is wonderful too."- K.H. / Google / Sep 13, 2019
"After my long time dentist retired, I had reservations about finding a new dentist. I didn't want to have any unnecessary work -which would have been costly, time consuming and also unpleasant! I've been going to this practice now for several years and have not had any problems. They are doing a great job keeping my teeth in good shape. Appointments are on schedule, the cleanings are good and they take my insurance. I also like the setting: the building and waiting rooms are nice, and the view of the birdhouses from the patients chair is pleasant."- M.W. / Google / Sep 12, 2019
"My family and I have been patients of West Bridgewater Dental for many years. Back some many years ago I needed to be seen on a Saturday (severe tooth pain on a Friday night) and West Bridgewater made room for me. They care about their patients and Dr. Harrison always took the time to say Hi, shake your hand and tell a corny story or two. Always feel safe with West Bridgewater Dental. Looking forward to working with the newest members of their family. Sincerely- Sandy Auld"- S.A. / Google / Aug 28, 2019
Best Candidates for Dentures
You could be a good candidate for removable dentures if you're missing several or all of your teeth, but your gums and jawbone are still healthy. If you have natural teeth, they can either be removed if you want a full denture or you can keep them as support for a partial. At your initial consultation with our skilled team, we'll assess your oral health and review your options to fit your budget and needs.
What To Expect
In some cases, our dentists may extract any remaining teeth before impressions are taken, which will help customize your dentures. Partial dentures will be shaded to blend with your remaining teeth for an attractive appearance. As soon as your custom dentures are made, our dentists will fit them in your mouth and ensure they're secure and comfortable. We'll also review how to clean and care for your dentures.
It may require some time before your dentures feel natural; however, it should become easier to speak and eat normally. If the dentures feel loose, return to West Bridgewater Dental to have them refitted. You'll need to clean your dentures with a toothbrush at least two times daily. Your dentures should be soaked at night to prevent them from drying out. It's important to continue to attend cleanings and exams at West Bridgewater Dental so our team can examine the fit and wear of your tooth replacement and the overall health of your mouth. We'll discuss if and when your dentures need to be replaced or repaired; however, with proper care, your custom dentures can last for several years.
If you're using insurance, some of the expenses of your custom dentures may be covered. Our team will talk to your dental insurance to understand your benefits and your personal costs. At your initial consultation, our dentists will develop your treatment plan so your dentures match your budget and needs. For help in making your dentures affordable with or without dental insurance, West Bridgewater Dental accepts several payment methods, including low-interest medical financing.
