There are three types of dentures, including partial dentures, full dentures, and denture implants.
Do people still get dentures?
Yes they do. Most people we reccomend to get dental implants but for those that dont want dental implants, then dentures are the way to go.
Dentures are used to replace missing teeth and the surrounding tissues. A few different metals or acrylic resin can be used to make dentures. We provide cosmetic dentures for teeth replacement for our patients in Astoria, NY, Queens, NY, and surrounding communities.
Dentures offer several cosmetic and functional advantages. It is important to replace the missing teeth, as the surrounding teeth may shift position. When teeth are missing, it can interfere with the ability to eat and chew food properly. In addition, missing teeth can cause sagging of the face and ages the appearance of the face. Also, when the teeth are not replaced, it can result in bone loss.
There are three types of dentures, including partial dentures, full dentures, and denture implants. The right treatment depends on the specific needs and extent of tooth loss in the individual patient. Your cosmetic dentist will assess the condition of your teeth and recommend the best treatment option for you.
At Steinway Family Dental Center, we often recommend denture implants for our patients. These dentures are secured in the gums using a permanent dental implant. There are several advantages to this type of denture, including improving speech, chewing ability, and retaining the natural facial shape. We encourage our patients in the Astoria, NY and Queens, NY to contact us to schedule a consultation and learn what type of dentures are best for you.
