Affordable dentures Brooklyn NY
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.
These are not your grandfather’s dentures; advances in dental techniques, materials and technology have made modern dentures precise fitting and natural in appearance. 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. Our doctor also has to match the color of the base to the exact color of your gums. Our doctor also has to make sure that there is minimal slippage so they look and feel perfect.

Dentures in Brooklyn
There are two types of prosthodontics, which are also known as dentures and bridges. One is the fixed type, a bridge, which is cemented to your gums and anchored to the tooth on each side. The other type is our dentures in Brooklyn. These are removable prosthodontics, and are either complete or partial, depending on how many teeth you need to replace. For many patients, this is the best option, as you can take it out when you want to, either because you don’t need them at that time (such as when you’re sleeping), or in order to clean your gums. Also, fixed bridges can feel unnatural for some people. It is our goal to give you back your complete smile and to do so in a manner that provides you with the utmost of comfort, aesthetics, and functionality.
Partial dentures are used when you have just a few teeth that need to be replaced. Dr. Esses takes impressions that are sent off to the dental lab, where our dentures in Brooklyn are fashioned to fit you with the highest degree of precision. They are held in at the gum line with dental adhesive and on either side with clasps connected to your natural teeth. It is a solution that has stood the test of time for filing the empty space where you used to have teeth. Partial dentures give you a great deal of flexibility to live your life the way you want to.
Complete dentures are similar in many ways to partials, except that they replace all of the teeth on one jaw, instead of just a few. As a result, there are no clasps to hold them in, and they are just fastened to your gums using dental adhesive. There are two types of complete dentures, immediate and conventional. When the last of your remaining teeth have been removed, it is usually advisable to wait a few months for your gums and bone tissue to shrink naturally, which ensures a better fit. This waiting period is for the conventional type. But what if you need our dentures in Brooklyn right away? We’re pleased to make immediate dentures that you can wear without the waiting period. However, adjustments will likely be needed after your gum and bone tissue shrink.
