Dentures Can Restore Your Smile and Confidence
With the great advances in dentistry, our doctors deliver beautiful, natural looking dentures at our Brooklyn Heights, NY practice. At Dentistry at the Heights, our wide range of dentures can satisfy both aesthetic and functional needs. A denture is a customized appliance designed to replace a partial or full arch of missing teeth and provide support for your cheeks and lips. When you come in for your consultation, one of our skilled doctors will help you decide which type of dentures is the best for you. We offer three different options: full dentures, partial dentures, and implant-supported dentures. The most appropriate choice will depend on your aesthetic goals, budget, and dental condition.
Are Dentures Right for You?
Dentures can be a good option for anyone who has experienced extensive tooth loss. It is important to consider each of the dentures we provide in order to find the one best suited for your unique needs and desires. Traditional, partial, and implant-supported dentures are fitting for:
- Patients missing several teeth or a row of teeth
- Patients considering replacing all of their teeth
- Patients with realistic expectations
- Patients that can follow good oral hygiene and care for their appliance
Types of Dentures We Provide
When considering dentures for missing teeth, we provide three different options at Dentistry at the Heights:
Traditional full dentures are an affordable option to replace all of your upper and/or lower teeth. Although you can easily remove them for cleaning, your custom-made denture will have a gum-colored acrylic base held in place with suction and a mild adhesive. Your dentures will be customized for an impeccable fit and to match the natural look of your smile.
Partial dentures fill in gaps between missing teeth. This type of prosthetic is supported by metal clasps that fit around healthy remaining teeth or dental crowns. As with full dentures, we will design your partial denture with a gum-colored acrylic base to fit well and match your smile.
Implant-supported dentures are permanently affixed in your mouth. These highly stable restorations attach to the bone with dental implants. Implant-supported dentures require surgically inserting these titanium posts into the jawbone. Once your jaw has healed, your dentist will attach your customized denture. An implant-supported prosthetic will not slip out of place when you speak, laugh, or chew. We offer the Prettau® Implant Bridge, which is one of the most natural-looking and long-lasting dentures available.
We offer three different options: full dentures, partial dentures, and implant-supported dentures.
Benefits of Dentures
Dentures can improve your smile and restore your dental function. In turn, they can boost your self-esteem and overall appearance. Dentures have many other benefits:
- Improve your ability to bite, chew, and speak
- Support your facial structure, giving your mouth and cheeks a fuller appearance
- Prevent any remaining teeth from wearing down or shifting
- Customized to match the look of your natural smile
Traditional and partial dentures are cost-effective and non-invasive. Implant-supported dentures do cost more and require surgery. However, they also offer unsurpassed stability and will typically last the rest of your life. To find out if dentures are a good option for you, contact our office today.
