Everything You Need to Know About Dentures

We often take our speech and chewing abilities for granted until we experience tooth loss. If you have lost several teeth or an entire arch, we can restore your smile with custom dentures. Dr. Julie Liberman has more than 25 years of experience restoring form and function to patients’ smiles using this and other modern solutions.

Dr. Liberman also offers implant-supported dentures for superior stability and comfort. If you live in or around Great Neck, NY, and have experienced the loss of several teeth or an entire arch of teeth, we welcome you to explore your tooth replacement options at our warm and welcoming dental practice.

Benefits of Dentures

Multiple missing teeth can lead to oral health problems as well as aesthetic issues. The absence of even one tooth can lead to misalignment of your entire smile. Individuals who are missing several teeth can appear older than their actual age due to sagging of the skin and facial muscles around the mouth. However, those who undergo denture placement at our Great Neck dental practice can benefit from:

  • Rejuvenated facial features
  • Improved quality of life
  • A restored smile
  • Restored chewing capabilities
  • Improved bite balance
  • Improved speech clarity

We also offer implant-supported dentures, which provide further benefits. Because these dentures are anchored directly to the jaw using dental implants, you can chew any foods you like without worrying about your denture slipping out of place. Meanwhile, implants are the only solution that keeps the jaw from receding following tooth loss. This means you can expect to need far fewer adjustments to your dentures over the years.

A Versatile Solution

Dentures can be made to accommodate a range of needs.

Am I a Candidate?

Our Great Neck dental practice offers multiple denture options, including traditional, implant-supported, full, and partial dentures. If you are missing several consecutive teeth, you may be a good candidate for partial dentures. The removable prosthetic attaches to nearby healthy teeth through the use of metal clasps or other devices. A full denture restores an entire arch of missing teeth. The removable appliance adheres directly to the gums through the use of a bonding agent. Candidates for a full or partial denture should be in good oral health. The gum surface will need to be free of disease or other dental problems.

Candidates for implant-supported dentures must have adequate bone density to receive the implants. Placement of dental implants requires oral surgery, meaning candidates must be in good overall health and free from gum disease.

Dr. Liberman can provide you with a custom set of dentures after two easy visits to our dental practice.

How Are Dentures Manufactured?

Dr. Liberman can provide you with a custom set of dentures after two easy visits to our Great Neck dental practice. During your first visit, an impression of your smile will be taken. This mold will be sent to a trusted laboratory where your denture will be manufactured. Dr. Liberman will take care to ensure that your new prosthetic matches the natural features of your smile. After a few weeks, your dentures will arrive at our office, and a second visit will be scheduled.

During your second visit, Dr. Liberman will carefully examine the denture to ensure that it is a proper fit.

Getting used to dentures usually takes a few weeks or months. Dr. Liberman will advise on how to clean and maintain your new denture to make sure it lasts as long as possible.
