Gouvernuer, NY dentist Dr. Nicholas Gardner offers dentures and partial dentures for the replacement of one or more missing teeth. These traditional restoration options can be either fixed or removable, providing a functional smile that supports your dental health and overall well being.
Types Of Dentures
There are two basic types of dentures:
- Partial dentures: used to replace one or several missing teeth, a partial denture is similar to a dental bridge and will complete your smile.
- Full dentures: a full denture will replace the top or bottom arch of teeth (or both) for a smile that can be either fixed or removable.
Choosing Dentures: What To Consider
Modern dentures have incorporated many of the advances in dental materials and technology, offering patients results that are more natural looking, comfortable and stable than the dentures worn by previous generations. There are several options for securing your dentures, including the use of dental implants for a more stable result.
Dr. Gardner will thoroughly evaluate your dental health and discuss your personal goals before making a personalized recommendation for replacing missing teeth with a type of denture or partial denture. Whenever possible, Dr. Gardner will recommend an implant secured denture for the most natural looking and functioning result and improved oral health. Also known as “all-on-four”, implant secured dentures can help to reduce the bone loss that typically occurs after losing one or more teeth. This can cause the shape of the jaw and the function of the bite to change, often affecting the fit of a denture or partial over time.
