Dentures & Partials
While it is our top priority to help you keep your natural teeth for your lifetime, there may be circumstances that lead to tooth loss. Living with multiple compromised teeth can take a toll on your confidence as well as your nutrition since it becomes difficult to properly chew the foods you would normally enjoy. If you find yourself struggling with missing teeth, your optimal treatment plan may be designed to include custom-made full, partial or more stable implant-supported dentures.
Comfortable, Stable Dentures
Full or partial removable dentures are precision appliances that replace multiple missing teeth and even an entire arch of missing teeth. Dentures rely on suction and a secure fit to keep them in place, while partials use metal clasps that anchor to healthy remaining teeth. A denture is typically made of acrylic, and our dentists thoughtfully design them, taking into consideration your facial structure and skin tone, so your new smile enhances your overall appearance while also restoring function so you can enjoy food once again. A partial uses custom-designed prosthetic teeth to fill in the gaps left by your missing teeth, creating a harmonious appearance to your smile once again.
Dr. Steinberg and Dr. Farahani have chosen the finest dental labs and technicians specializing in the crafting of securely fitted prosthetics that feel comfortable and provide stability and enhanced natural appearance.
The Innovation of Implant Retained Dentures
Taking advantage of the advancements in the technology, fabrication, and design of full and partial dentures, Dr. Steinberg and Dr. Farahani will often incorporate the use of dental implants to reinforce the stability of your denture and lock it into place for optimum retention. A few dental implants are placed strategically so your partial or full denture can "snap" into place. Implants ensure that your denture stays securely in place eliminating any movement or slippage when you eat, talk, or laugh. They also provide the additional benefit of stimulating your jawbone, so there is no deterioration experienced over time as there is with traditional dentures, which ensures improved longevity for your appliance.
By designing all forms of dentures using the same exacting standards they apply to advanced crown and bridge reconstruction, Dr. Steinberg and Dr. Farahani endeavor to contribute to your overall health, wellness, eating pleasure and quality of life.
