We are open - safety is our top priority!
Are missing teeth affecting your ability to speak and chew? Do you find yourself hiding your smile from friends and family? If so, dentures in Rockefeller Plaza may help you reclaim your smile and confidence.
What Happens When You Get Dentures?
The dentures process usually involves several steps. During an initial visit, your dentist will examine the condition of your teeth and gums, and proceed by taking measurements and making impressions of your bite. This ensures that your new appliance accurately replicates your bite. If you have any teeth remaining, they will need to be extracted before you receive your permanent denture. For implant-supported dentures, the dental implants will need to be placed before you receive your appliance. Once your mouth has fully recovered from any preliminary procedures, you’ll be able to wear your new dentures and enjoy a dazzling, new smile.
How Many Types of Dentures Are Available?
Our quality dentures in Rockefeller Plaza are available in a variety of styles to meet your needs. Call us now to find out which style of affordable quality dentures is best for restoring your smile.
Full or Partial Dentures
Often referred to as a complete denture, a full denture can replace an entire row of upper or lower teeth. These appliances can be removable or fixed, and can be attached using adhesive or surgically placed implants. Full dentures are designed to look and function just like your natural teeth. At your appointment, one of our dentists will determine what type of full denture is best for you.
A partial denture can be an excellent solution when you still have many teeth left, but are missing one or more in a particular area of the jaw. Partials are similar to bridges in that they attach to surrounding healthy teeth using a clasp system or other mechanism. Like a removable complete denture, partials should be removed each evening for cleaning.
Flexible Partial Denture
Flexible partial dentures are created using soft, realistic materials. These appliances bend as you chew and speak, and they also include gum-colored clasps for a natural look. When you wear this discreet denture, no one will know you are wearing an appliance unless you tell them.
If you’re looking for a reliable, stable denture without the use of sticky bonding agents, an implant-supported denture may be right for you. While a traditional denture rests on the gum line, an implant-supported denture uses dental implants to remain secure. The appliance can be fixed in place or can be removable with simple snap-on technology.
What Will Dentures at Our Office Cost?
Every person faces unique challenges when it comes to restorative dentistry, and receiving dentures is no different. Because of this, your total dentures cost will vary widely from other patients. In most cases, the style of denture selected and the materials used to create the denture factor into the cost. At your appointment, one of our dentists will review your care plan and explain your possible charges.
What Are Dentures and Why Are They Used?
A denture is a fully customized dental device that replaces a full arch or section of missing teeth. They are usually created using gum-colored acrylic, porcelain, metal, and other durable materials. Choosing affordable quality dentures from our practice can greatly improve the structure of your face as well as your speaking and chewing ability.
Will a Soft Denture Reline Improve Denture Comfort?
Prolonged denture wear can occasionally lead to sore spots in the mouth. With a soft reline, you can alleviate discomfort and wear your device more easily. During this affordable treatment, the dentist relines your appliance with a pliable, soft material that can remain comfortable for approximately two years.
How Do All-on-Four Dentures Work?
The All-on-Four denture technique is a modern approach to treating missing teeth. During this treatment, a full arch of artificial teeth are placed upon four dental implants in the bottom jaw. This provides the wearer with excellent stability and biting power. If you wish to learn more about this denture option, contact our office.
