Dentist in Rockland County, NY that offers Dentures & Partials

Common Type of Dentures

Cosmetic Dentistry Associates offers several types of dentures to meet the needs of their patients. We can provide you with a complete removable denture or one that is fixed with dental implants. We also offer partial dentures if you have some remaining teeth present. The type of denture you will need depends on how many teeth you are missing and your unique needs. We will design a custom denture to meet your needs for the upper or lower arch or both.

Removable Dentures

We offer custom complete and partial removable dentures. Choosing to replace your missing teeth with removable denture will require you to remove it daily. The appliance will require a thorough cleaning every day. Removing your full denture daily is also necessary to rest the gums. Most dentists agree that you should take out the dentures nightly, giving your gums a chance to rest and thoroughly clean them.

A removable complete denture is designed to replace an entire upper or lower row of teeth. This dental appliance, consisting of a framework with false teeth, rests on your gums and stays in place through suction and muscle control, ensuring a secure and functional fit.

A removable partial denture can replace several missing teeth on the upper or lower row of teeth. Partial dentures are made of a framework consisting of metal clasps and false teeth. The replacement teeth are strategically placed on the framework to fill in the gaps in your smile. The mental clasps snap onto a few remaining teeth to secure the appliance.

Fixed Dentures

Dental implants allow our team to secure dentures to the upper or lower arch. Implant dentures offer more stability and a better functioning smile. This appliance allows us to create a set of false teeth that will function similarly to natural teeth.

A fixed implant denture is a fixed implant-supported denture. This type of dental restoration is permanently secured to the jaw. Implant-secured dentures are a long-term solution for tooth loss that offers superior stability. As a long-lasting, stable solution for tooth loss, fixed implant dentures will allow you to smile, chew, and speak without worry of slippage.

Your dentist must place between two to eight dental implants in the jaw bone. The implant posts will fuse to the bone, providing a stable base for the denture and a replacement for the teeth roots. With teeth implants, you significantly lower your risk for bone loss. This type of denture is fixed in place, and only your dentist can remove it.

You also have one more option to choose from. A removable implant-supported denture is similar to a fixed implant-supported denture, but it is removable. This option gives you the stability of securing the denture with implants but the convenience of being able to remove it for cleaning and maintenance. This type of denture is a step up from a traditional removable denture.

Benefits of Implant Secured Dentures

When you lose your teeth, the remaining teeth shift to fill the empty space your missing teeth left behind. The bone underneath your missing teeth also begins to deteriorate until the point where it can no longer support your remaining teeth.

Implants are designed to replace the natural tooth root, which helps stimulate the jaw bone and prevent further deterioration. Many patients choose implant-supported dentures because it offers them a secure and natural looking solution for missing teeth.

With implant supported dentures, you can also look forward to these key benefits:

  • Improved gum health
  • Prevents bone retention
  • Prevents facial sagging due to missing teeth
  • A more secure solution
  • More convenient
  • Less irritation to the gum tissue

During the healing phase, we will place a temporary denture to restore function to your smile. After the healing process is complete, we will take impressions of your teeth to help create your custom dentures.

We will create your custom denture with your specific needs in mind. A beautifully crafted denture will fit comfortably and blend seamlessly with your natural smile.

Frequently Asked Questions about Dentures

Dentures are a popular choice for tooth replacement. However, if you are preparing for your first set of dentures, we understand you may have several questions. Our dental practice has compiled some of the most frequently asked questions

Do you need adhesive for partial dentures?

Dental adhesive is not always necessary, however you can use it to improve the fit of your partial dentures. If your dentures are well fitting, you will usually not need any help keeping them in, however some people still choose to use adhesive for a sense of security. If your old dentures do not fit properly anymore, you may need new dentures.

Can you eat with partial dentures?

You will still be able to eat and drink the same foods as before getting your partial dentures. Although, you will need to be a bit more conscious about the types of foods you eat. You may find it difficult to clean your dentures if you eat sticky foods, and hard foods may damage your dentures over time.

What should I do if I have a broken denture?

Call your dentist immediately. Visit us, we may be able to fix your denture. Although, sometimes, a fixed broken denture can cause more harm than good. If its structural integrity is compromised, we may recommend getting a new one.

Are dentures hard to wear?

It will take time to adjust to new dentures. Dentures secured by dental implants should not be difficult or uncomfortable to wear after this period. Alternatively, removable dentures that use adhesive to stay in place may feel uncomfortable. Dentures can still shift and make eating hard and crunchy foods difficult. Because implant-supported dentures receive support from artificial titanium tooth roots, they will feel more natural than removable options.

Can I sleep with dentures?

We recommend removing dentures before sleeping. Sleeping with dentures in your mouth can increase the risk of gum irritation, bacterial buildup, and appliance damage. You can also be at risk of denture stomatitis, a condition that occurs when yeast forms on dentures. Wearing your dentures for too long, particularly at night, can increase the possibility of developing denture stomatitis.

How long do implant dentures last?

Your implant-secured dentures can last 15 to 20 years with the right care. The dental implants that support your dentures are permanent.
