Full and Partial Dentures in NYC
You might be wondering… What’s the difference between a full and partial denture?
Partial dentures are used when you’re only missing a few teeth – meaning you still have many of your natural teeth. Partial dentures are held in place by a base plate or a clip. However full dentures replace all of your teeth and are held in place with an adhesive. Full dentures can also be attached to a dental implant post for a secure fit.
Dentures have come a long way in recent years and we have some of the best dentists in NY that can help them look natural and more comfortable than ever.
Here are some of the most common questions we get:
I’m planning to get dental implants, can I get temporary dentures?
Absolutely! We can provide you with temporary dentures while the dental implant is fusing with your bone to become strong enough to support a crown. Our temporary dentures can be work until your implants are ready.
Will I ever get comfortable wearing dentures?
The length of time it takes you to get comfortable with a denture depends on the type you have…but most patients get fully adjusted in 2 weeks or less. Partial dentures don’t take as long to adjust to because it only replaces some of your teeth. Full dentures take a little longer to get used to but wearing your dentures as often as you can will help you get used to it faster.
Are dentures easy to care for?
It’s almost as easy as brushing your teeth. You should take your dentures out before bed, rinse them thoroughly, and brush them to remove any food particles. Dentures should be soaked while you sleep and can then be placed back into your mouth when you wake up.
