Missing teeth make everyday tasks like eating, speaking, and smiling more difficult.
Dentures allow patients who are missing multiple teeth or an entire dental arch to restore the appearance and function of a healthy smile.
Dr. Brian Hirschfield at Lakeview Dental in Lakeville, NY, offers dentures that can fit your needs and lifestyle, with a 5-year guarantee.
The Different Types of Dentures
Traditional complete dentures are a full set of removable prosthetic teeth that rest on the gums and may be stabilized with the use of dental adhesives. Traditional dentures are made from durable acrylic, but will need to be relined periodically to improve or maintain their fit due to changes in the jaw that follow tooth loss.
Partial dentures are typically attached to adjacent teeth with the use of dental clasps. Like traditional complete dentures, traditional partial dentures are removable, and occasional relines may be necessary. Partial dentures can replace consecutive missing teeth, or isolated areas of tooth loss throughout the dental arch.
Dr. Hirschfield can surgically place dental implants into your upper or lower jawbone to secure a full or partial zirconia denture in place. Though dental implants and implant-supported dentures cost more than traditional options, they are a more secure, longer-lasting solution. Additionally, they don't require messy adhesives or uncomfortable dental clasps, and relining is needed much less frequently because implants help the jaw retain its shape.
During your initial consultation, Dr. Hirschfield will help determine which option is right for you.
