A denture is a removable tooth replacement which also replaces adjacent tissues. It can be made of several different types of materials. Complete dentures will replace all your teeth, while a partial denture will fill in the space left by one or several missing teeth; it a will keep other teeth from moving into the position of lost teeth. This is very important because once teeth begin to shift in this manner, you can develop serious orthodontic problems as it can affect your entire bite. If you have lost most or all of your teeth, a complete denture is generally the best prosthodontics solution for you. You will get a partial denture if you have some natural teeth remaining. Dentures serve many important functions. Not only will they help you to chew better, and improve your speech, they will also provide needed support for your facial muscles so you will be able to retain a more youthful appearance.

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.
