When you are getting complete dentures for your upper or lower plate, it is understandable that you would want to get them right away. After all, you want to feel confident about smiling and speaking and laughing. And at the office of Abraham Esses, DDS, we can supply you with temporary dentures, or what are also sometimes called immediate dentures, in advance of your permanent ones. There are pros and cons, of course, so let’s lay them out so you can make an informed decision; one that is best for your unique needs.

With complete dentures, the goal is to give you ones that are perfectly fitted for maximum comfort and reliability. When the last of your natural teeth is removed, there is a period of time during which your gum and bone tissue will shrink. This is natural, and waiting for it to occur before placing your permanent dentures leads to less complications and fewer adjustments required for our Sheepshead Bay dentures. Of course, waiting may pose challenges for you. It’s possible that you may feel awkward around friends, family, co-workers, clients, etc. That’s where temporary dentures come in. The pros are that you will have an immediate solution for your lost teeth and will feel more confident around other people. The cons are that the fit will not be as ideal as you would like. They may feel “weird” to you, and the shrinkage of bone and gum will mean that you will need adjustments to account for those changes. There is also an additional cost to getting our Sheepshead Bay dentures right away, since you are getting two sets made: one temporary, and one permanent.

What is right for you? Why not come in for a consultation where you can have all your questions answered and determine along with our dentist which version of our Sheepshead Bay dentures you prefer?

If you have missing teeth that need to be replaced, you will definitely want to visit us at our dental practice, Abraham Esses, DDS. Our Brooklyn dentist, Dr. Abraham Esses, will be able to provide you with removable prosthodontics – dentures and partials – so that your smile can be fully restored.

Complete dentures will replace a full row of teeth in your mouth. If you get dentures immediately after teeth are extracted, these are called immediate dentures. These dentures are not meant to last for a long amount of time. Instead, they will be worn for several months while your gums fully heal. After the gums have fully healed, our Brooklyn dentist will then have conventional dentures made for you. These dentures are your permanent dentures, and will not only be fully functional and comfortable, but they will provide you with a beautiful smile. You will get your conventional dentures probably between eight and 12 weeks after your teeth have been removed. The benefit of getting immediate dentures is that you will never be without teeth, as you will receive these dentures right after your teeth are extracted. Partial dentures are provided by our dentist when there is one or several remaining teeth left in the patient’s upper or lower jaw. The partial dentures will be made to fit around the remaining teeth. The remaining permanent teeth will be protected by the partial dentures, as it will keep the permanent teeth from moving and loosening. Our dentist can also provide fixed bridges for our patients who have missing teeth that need to be replaced. Fixed bridges are permanently attached to adjacent teeth, and will provide a new replacement tooth.

For an appointment to meet with our Brooklyn dentist regarding getting any type of dentures or partials, simply contact us today. At our dental practice, we know that there is never a one-size-fits-all solution to tooth replacement, and our dentist will carefully assess your individual situation to determine what will work best for you.

Missing teeth are not something that you want to walk around without. Aside from the aesthetic disadvantages of missing teeth a mouth without teeth can cause problems with eating, speaking and the lack of teeth can cause the gums to shrink and the facial structure itself to change. Dr. Abraham Esses, DDS helps patients with missing teeth, especially those that have no teeth or only a few teeth to regain their smile and their confidence through the use of affordable dentures Brooklyn NY.

There are two types of affordable dentures Brooklyn NY that our dentist uses – full and partial dentures. Full dentures are used to replace all the teeth on the upper or lower jaws while partial dentures replace a few teeth in one of the arches of the jaw. Partial dentures can replace some teeth on one side of the mouth or some on both sides. Dentures place artificial teeth that match your original teeth in size and color in a wire frame, which is then surrounded by a base that is made to match your gums. Our doctor will take digital images of your mouth and detailed impressions from which the dentures will be fabricated. Sometimes our doctor will have to extract some remaining teeth before dentures can be made. Conventional dentures will not be made until after the gum tissue has healed after an extraction so, the patient is usually without teeth for four to six weeks. Immediate dentures are placed directly after the extractions so there is no time spent without teeth but these dentures often need to be adjusted several times as the gum shrinks after surgery.

Quality affordable dentures Brooklyn NY are a work that progresses in stages. Our doctor has to carefully match the size and color of your teeth, especially for partial dentures.

Extractions in Brooklyn NY

Our dentist in Brooklyn NY Dr. Abraham Esses, DDS strives to preserve teeth through prevention and restoration but sometimes even our best efforts can’t prevent the need for teeth extractions. Our practice specializes in restorative and implant dentistry but our doctor has also had extensive training and experience in oral surgery so our practice can handle extractions of all types without our patients having to go to another practitioner to get a tooth pulled.

Teeth extractions by our dentist in Brooklyn NY are necessary for many reasons depending on the underlying condition or impairment of the teeth involved. The majority of extractions are of teeth that are severely decayed and can’t be saved by restoration. Severe gum disease is another major reason for extractions, where the gum is diseased to a degree that it can no longer support the tooth. Teeth can also be extracted because they are blocking another tooth or to relieve an overcrowded mouth. Extractions also happen in preparation for orthodontic treatments. Sometimes teeth that are severely cracked, fractured or malformed have to be extracted. Other extraction reasons include removing teeth that may get infected for a patient receiving chemotherapy or a tooth blocking the path of radiation therapy to the head or neck.

Teeth extractions can be done by our dentist in Brooklyn NY through simple extractions or surgical extractions depending on the condition and position of the tooth. A simple extraction is usually performed when the teeth to be extracted are visible in the mouth. A local anesthetic is given to numb the area and the tooth is lifted using an instrument called an elevator and then forceps are used to rock the tooth back and forth until the periodontal ligament has sufficiently broken and the alveolar bone has widened to allow the tooth to be lifted out. A surgical extraction is performed when a tooth is not easily accessible. Under general anesthesia an incision is made and the area around the tooth is lifted or maybe removed, often the tooth is shattered to facilitate removal. If you need teeth extracted for whatever reason please make an appointment with our practice.
