Thanks to new technology, modern dentures are just as functional, strong and attractive as your natural teeth.

There is no reason to live with missing teeth when you can improve your quality of life, confidence, and smile with dentures from the Huntington dentists at Long Island Implant and Cosmetic Dentistry. Dentures are artificial, removable teeth that can replace just one tooth, a complete set, or any number of teeth in between. Today, with the latest technology, dentures are an easy, fast and affordable answer to many dental problems. Call our Huntington, Long Island office to day to see if dentures are the right solution for your dental needs!

Benefits of Dentures

It’s no secret that a smile is a powerful thing. Unfortunately, the opposite is also true. If your smile is missing teeth or has gaps, it can lead to lost confidence in both social and professional situations. Getting dentures can go a long way to improving your self-confidence and overall psychological well-being.

Modern dentures also offer a lot of other great benefits. They are almost maintenance free, and just require a quick cleaning every night. Unlike implants, dentures don’t require invasive surgeries. In fact, the denture process is quick, easy, and pain-free, not to mention affordable.

Modern dentures can also help improve your face’s lines and contours, as missing teeth can lead to a lack of facial structure support, leaving you with a saggy, sunken look. Adding dentures can take years off of your appearance.

There are three main types of dentures you can choose from to take your smile to the next level and enjoy these many benefits: conventional, temporary, and overdentures.

Conventional Dentures

Conventional dentures come in both full and partial sets. The full sets replace a full set of teeth on the upper maxillary arch, or on the lower mandibular arch. They are removable, and come with an acrylic mouthpiece that comfortably adheres them to the roof of your mouth and your gums.

The partial sets of conventional dentures come with removable and fixed options. The removable partial sets attach to existing teeth with clips. They have a plastic base that’s made to blend in with the gums for a seamless look. Fixed partial sets are fitted permanently on the remaining teeth, and are therefore made with materials chosen to closely match the remaining existing teeth. These fixed dentures are more stable than the removable, but often cost more.

Temporary or Immediate Dentures

Immediate or temporary dentures are also referred to as same-day dentures. These dentures are most commonly used for patients that need to have diseased or damaged teeth removed right away, as they fill the gaps temporarily until permanent dentures can be chosen, made and fitted.

Overdentures

Overdentures are permanent replacement teeth held in place by titanium implants. They offer patients reliable strength and stability, as well as the confidence that the dentures will stay in place no matter what.

Your New Dentures

When you’re fitted with new dentures, you can expect a lot of positive change. Your face might take on a more youthful contour, and it will definitely be easier to chew and smile.

There will be a period of a few weeks that you will have to adjust to your new dentures. You can expect some mild irritation and soreness, but both will fade in time as your new smile takes over.

Denture Alternatives

If you’re looking for a more permanent dental solution, you can contact Long Island Implant & Cosmetic Dentistry to learn about denture alternatives, such as dental implants, which are permanently affixed to the jawbone and offer a natural look that’s easy to maintain.
