If you have many teeth that need to be replaced, you are probably going to be getting dentures. At Teaneck Dentist, our expert dentists, Dr. Richard S. Gertler and Dr. Ari Frohlich, can provide you with beautiful dentures in Leonia to restore your teeth.
When you get your dentures at our dental practice, we know that you will be very happy with the look of your dentures. However, it may take some time to get used to wearing new dentures. At first, it is very common for dentures to feel a bit awkward in your mouth, but in a short amount of time we know that this feeling will go away. There are different types of dentures in Leonia that you may get at our dental office. If you have a full row of teeth that need to be replaced, you will be getting complete dentures. However, if you have several remaining teeth, you can get partial dentures. Partial dentures are made to fit around remaining teeth. They will actually help to protect the remaining teeth by making sure that they do not move around in your gums while you are chewing. This will help to prevent loss of any of these remaining permanent teeth. Sometimes after patients’ teeth are extracted, they get immediate dentures. Immediate dentures are made beforehand, and are inserted into the patient’s mouth directly after their teeth are extracted. This way patients never need to be without teeth as it will take several months for the gums to settle after the tooth extractions. Gums will also shrink. So, patients can wear immediate dentures while their gums finally settle into their permanent shape. Once this occurs, our dentist will fit you for your set of permanent conventional dentures which will fit your mouth precisely, and be your permanent dentures for years to come. We will provide you with exact instructions on how to take care of, and best adjust to, your new dentures.
