Top-Rated Dentures in Manhattan NYC
Dentures are removable appliances that look like natural teeth. Patients may have full dentures (upper and lower) if all their natural teeth have been removed, or if the patient elects to have any remaining teeth extracted. Partial dentures can be a good fit for patients who have one or several missing teeth. With partials, the prosthetic teeth are attached to a metal frame, which connects to your natural teeth. These are a removable alternative to bridges.
What You Should Know About Dentures
The decision to proceed with dentures is a big one, and we understand you likely have a lot of questions. Some of the most commonly-discussed topics include the following:
- If you are considering dentures, contact us to schedule a consultation. We will be able to make recommendations on full vs. partial dentures, or if dentures are even your best option. As dental technology improves, we have more options available to us than ever before.
- Dentures require ongoing maintenance. Just as with natural teeth, dentures can harbor bacteria, so daily cleaning is required. When you are not wearing them, they must be kept in a
cleansing solution or in water, so they do not dry out, crack, or lose their shape. We recommend dentures be removed at night, to give your soft tissue a chance to rest.
- If you need to have teeth extracted prior to being fitted for dentures, we may be able to do all of this in one appointment. We will be able to provide guidance based on your specific case when you come in for your consultation.
- Dentures can be color matched to your existing teeth, even if your upper and lower teeth are different. If you are a candidate for partial dentures, rest assured that the final product will match the surrounding natural teeth. However, they cannot be whitened. If you are looking for an overall whiter smile, discuss this during your consultation, so we can look at teeth whitening options for your natural teeth prior to completing your partial dentures so that there are no problems.
Ongoing Denture Care and Repair
Our team will discuss proper care for the long term. Our goal is patient comfort; if you start to develop irritation to your gums, you will need to have the dentures adjusted. Without natural teeth in place, your gums will shift over time. Dentures do also wear out eventually. It is likely that they will eventually need to be relined, replaced, or replaced to ensure comfort and function.
Also, even if you have full dentures, you should still schedule regular dental appointments, so our team can evaluate any changes with your gums and overall oral health as well as the price of care and available discounts.
