If you are missing multiple teeth, need to have more teeth removed, or are unable to repair your natural teeth due to injury, gum disease, or tooth decay, dentures are one option that can help you restore your smile, eat the foods you love and speak freely and confidently. You may be a good candidate for dentures if you are missing some or all of your teeth and are looking for an accessible, removable solution. Here are some things to consider when determining whether to get dentures to replace your missing teeth.
What Types of Dentures are Available?
Dentures are removable appliances to replace missing teeth. Depending on the number of teeth you are missing, you may need partial dentures or full dentures. Partial dentures are designed to replace one segment of missing teeth while your other natural teeth remain in place, while complete or full dentures cover an entire arch of teeth in the top or bottom of your mouth. At Shine Dental Associates in Long Island, we have an on-site dental lab to produce your custom dentures, customized to fit your mouth perfectly. You can even leave with your dentures the same day you visit our Syosset office for any extractions.
What Are the Benefits of Dentures?
Dentures may provide a number of benefits to help restore and enhance your quality of life after missing teeth. Today’s dentures are lightweight, comfortable, and made from advanced materials that provide excellent fit and durability. With good care, your dentures can last up to 10 years, and our Syosset office provides on-site repairs and relines when necessary. Here are some of the key benefits of dentures:
- Boosting confidence and self-esteem
- Restoring the appearance of your smile
- Protecting and supporting the muscles of your face
- Improving comfort and clarity while speaking
- Restoring your ability to eat your favorite foods
Dentures are often a cost-effective restoration alternative that may be more accessible than dental implants. There are also implant-supported dentures, which may combine some of the benefits of implants and full dentures. Because your dentures can be easily removed, it is easy to thoroughly clean them. Dentures are made to be long-lasting, and with proper care, you can enjoy your new dentures for many years to come.
