Well-fitting dentures and “gold-standard” tooth replacement to complete your healthy, stunning smile
If you have lost one tooth, a few teeth, a group of teeth, or an entire upper or lower arch full of teeth, at Let’s Smile Dental, we have a treatment for you! Our team of dentists can complete your smile precisely, safely, comfortably, and conveniently with both partial and full dentures. The modern techniques and technologies at our practice in New York City also allow our dentists to rebuild a tooth or several teeth from the “root up” with implants designed like real, natural teeth.
Conventional, well-fitting dentures
Depending on your current needs and any extractions in the future, we may recommend either partial dentures or complete dentures. The complaints associated with earlier-generation “traditional” dentures have generally had to do with “fit.” A poor fit can lead to discomfort and dysfunction; for instance, the denture may slide around and cause painful oral sores.
At Let’s Smile Dental, we use advanced diagnostics to design dentures that perfectly fit your mouth. Those who still have some teeth left can benefit from partials that attach to natural tissues with precision clasps or attachments. Our well-fitting upper or lower dentures “stay put” due to suction in the mouth. They hug the contours of your mouth precisely. We also work closely with patients to assure they adjust well to their new teeth and that their satisfaction with dentures is sustained for life!
Over time, oral tissues evolve. The denture that formerly fit so well may become loose and cause embarrassing slip-ups and irritation. No problem! We will check for fit during your hygiene visit and make recommendations as needed. These recommended services may include relining or rebasing the denture.
Oh, and modern denture-wearers never have to worry about the dentures “wearing them,” with teeth that look “plastic” or “too perfect.” We are exacting in our approach to designing dentures that are indistinguishable in appearance from healthy, natural teeth.
A note on implant-retained dentures
Our dentists may discuss dentures retained with dental implants during a denture consultation at our practice. These dentures get their support from cylindrical-shaped posts or implants placed in the jawbone. Each implant is made from biocompatible materials and is designed to grow into the surrounding bone naturally. Implants become a part of the jaw. So, once dentures are connected to them, the implant functions like natural tooth roots. Implants can also replace a single tooth or a group of teeth.
We look forward to discussing the pros and cons of the various treatment options available at our practice in NYC. Call (212) 831-8940 to schedule your appointment at Let’s Smile Dental today.
