Completely Restore Your Smile with Dentures
Whenever possible, your dentist in Cortlandt tries his utmost to save your natural teeth. However, sometimes tooth loss happens, despite best efforts from you and Dr. Taxin. Losing a tooth clearly changes the way your smile looks, but especially if you’ve lost a significant number of teeth, you know all too well how it can affect your speech, eating habits, and appearance. Your face can begin to show dramatic signs of aging, and your overall health can suffer. Regardless of the reason for your tooth loss, Dr. Taxin offers full or partial dentures to help you regain your smile’s strength, function, and health.
What are dentures?
Dentures are prosthetic teeth that are attached to a gum-colored plastic base. Technology has become so advanced that dentures these days appear much more lifelike than in years past. There are two main types of dentures: partial and full. Dentures are typically secured in place using suction, metal clasps, dental adhesive, or dental implants. Catering to your needs, your dentist in Cortlandt can create a personalized treatment plan for your dentures, ensuring that they look natural and feel great for years to come.
What are partial dentures?
If you still have some remaining healthy teeth, partial dentures may be the right treatment solution for you. You can have partial dentures permanently fixed in place either by anchoring them to the surrounding healthy teeth or with dental implants. The other option is that you can have removeable partial dentures. Either way, it’s important to practice good oral habits to ensure that your remaining teeth and gums can stay healthy in the long term.
What are full dentures?
Believe it or not, you can restore your entire smile, even after total tooth loss. If this is the case for you, Dr. Taxin and Dr. Schwartz may recommend full dentures. With full dentures, you can get a fresh start with a natural-looking set of brand new teeth. Like partials, these dentures too can be fixed with implants or removeable, according to your needs.
Keep in mind that no longer having any natural teeth does not mean that you get a free pass for oral care. Every morning before you insert your dentures, if they are removeable, you need to brush your gums, tongue, and palate to remove plaque and stimulate circulation in the tissue.
Whether you need partial or full dentures, whether you want them fixed with implants or not, Dr. Taxin and Dr. Schwartz can help turn back the clock and restore your smile. Contact our office to schedule an appointment with us today!
