Dentures

Removable devices that replace missing teeth and surrounding tissue, restoring functionality and appearance to the mouth.

Dentures can restore missing teeth

Missing teeth is a serious oral health concern that can also diminish your self-esteem. With multiple types of dentures, Nasrin Sadeghi, DMD, Medha Singh, DMD, BDS, MS, and the team at First Dental Associates in Reading, Massachusetts, can replace a few teeth, a full arch, or all the teeth in your mouth. Call the office today or schedule an appointment online to find out if dentures are right for you.

What are dentures? 

Dentures are removable prosthetics that replace missing teeth and surrounding tissues, such as your gums. They can restore some or all of your teeth with natural-looking, artificial replacements. Creating dentures requires careful measurements and impressions to ensure the most comfortable, functional fit.  

First Dental Associates specializes in creating custom-made dentures that look and feel like your natural smile. 


Are there different types of dentures?

First Dental Associates offers multiple types of dentures to suit your needs, including:

Complete dentures

Complete (or full) dentures replace the top and bottom rows of teeth. To replace all the teeth in your mouth, full dentures include artificial teeth that connect to a pink acrylic base mimicking your natural gums. The prosthesis rests on your gums and includes artificial tissue that covers the roof of your mouth for a snug fit.

Partial dentures

Partial dentures only replace some of your teeth. They’re ideal if you still have a decent amount of healthy teeth left in your mouth. Like complete dentures, partials connect to pink acrylic gums but don’t cover the roof of your mouth or rest on top of your gums. Instead, a metal framework attaches to your surrounding teeth to hold them in place.

Valplast® dentures

Valplast dentures are soft partials made of flexible thermoplastic materials. They’re lightweight and biocompatible, making these partial dentures ideal for individuals with acrylic allergies.

Implant-supported dentures

Implant-supported dentures connect to dental implants (replacement tooth roots) rather than resting on your gums. They secure your dentures in place for a stable fit.

First Dental Associates offers two types: bar-supported dentures and ball-supported dentures. The former includes a metal bar that attaches to 3-4 implants, while the latter has a small ball at the end of each implant to help your dentures snap into place.

How do I care for my dentures? 

Depending on the type of dentures you have, the team may recommend that you:

  • Invest in a soft-bristled toothbrush
  • Brush them daily
  • Use denture adhesive
  • Soak them overnight
  • Schedule regular dental visits
  • Take them out nightly

Handle your dentures carefully to avoid damage, and contact the team immediately if you experience any problems with their fit or function.

Fantastic Team

This is a team of wonder women! Their kindness compassion and complete lack of judgment was a slice saving as the impeccable job that they did on my ex-partner's teeth. It was one of the worst situations they had seen and a very delicate situation they tended to with utmost care. Even fun! The relationship ended but my gratitude for them is eternal and hope more humans can be like them!

Personal Experience

I was referred to First Dental Associates by a family friend and have been a patient for more than 5 years now. The team at First Dental makes a visit to the dentist a pleasurable experience. Upon entering the office, I am greeted by Carol at the front desk, whom always wears a smile and asks how my family is doing, creating the kind of personal experience that is hard to find these days. The hygienists are always so friendly, professional, and thorough with cleanings. Dr. Sadeghi, also very kind and professional, has completed flawless dental work for me from replacing fillings to administering my Invisalign treatment. The office is impeccably clean and the equipment is all new. If you are looking for a dentist in the Reading area, I highly recommend First Dental Associates.

Years of Great Service!

I have been going here for years. Extremely professional, kind, empathetic, and always considerate. I've had 3 pain-free root canals...hard to believe. I had neglected my teeth for years because of a fear of dentists. (I had a WW2 Navy dentist as a kid.......

Years of Great Service!

I have been going here for years. Extremely professional, kind, empathetic, and always considerate. I've had 3 pain-free root canals...hard to believe. I had neglected my teeth for years because of a fear of dentists. (I had a WW2 Navy dentist as a kid....enough said). Dr Sadeghi and her staff always take the time to ensure you a pain-free experience. The bonus is her hands are very tiny ...you won't feel like you have 2 or 3 spoons in your mouth. The quality of her work is superb. I can assure you that you will be impressed...I always am!
