Do you have several missing teeth? Maybe you have lost (or are about to lose) all of them on your upper or lower jaw. With partial or complete dentures, whichever is applicable, you can restore your complete smile here at the office of The Gentle Dentist.
When you have empty space where teeth used to be, it can make you feel self-conscious, but the effects go beyond the cosmetic. Chewing your food can be challenging or even impossible depending on the extent of the tooth loss. Your speech can be affected negatively, too. Our dentures in Garden City are the simple and effective solution. Complete dentures are often put in after a waiting period from the point that the last of your teeth have been removed. The reason for this is that your gum and bone tissue naturally shrink during the healing process, and if the denture is put in before that, you will need to have adjustments in order to achieve a good, comfortable fit. However, immediate dentures can be provided, either temporarily or permanently, for those who need and want them. Our dentures in Garden City may also be partials, replacing only a few teeth. In that case, they will have clasps on either side to attach to neighboring teeth, for greater stability. And for both partials and complete dentures, you will use dental adhesive at the gum line to keep them in place. The foundation of dentures is a pink plastic base, designed to blend in with the color of your gums. There is a metal support structure around it, and the appropriate number of prosthetic teeth on top.
