Metropolitan Center for Complete Dentistry in the Summit, NJ area offers several options for the replacement of one or more missing teeth, including dentures and partial dentures. Many of our patients suffer from missing teeth and seek out solutions to replace them.
A toothless smile can be embarrassing and even hinder patients from enjoying many things in life. Eating, talking and smiling are difficult without teeth.
Replacing your missing teeth with dentures is a great way to regain your confidence and allow you to chew and speak much easier. It is important to replace a missing tooth as soon as possible to avoid the development of additional dental problems that may compromise your quality of life.
A denture is a removable dental appliance and a replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissue. They are made to closely resemble your natural teeth and may even enhance your smile. Dentures are considered very durable appliances and will last many years but may have to be remade, repaired, or readjusted due to normal wear.
Types of Dentures
Dentures are custom made artificial teeth used to replace missing teeth and some of the gum tissue. They are made in a dental lab with impressions of your mouth. Dr. Raj Upadya offers removable dentures as well as fixed, permanent dentures in his Summit, NJ dentist office.
Partial Denture: Partial dentures are similar to a dental bridge because they replace several missing teeth. They are made to fill gaps in your smile. They are secured using metal clasps and remaining teeth.
Full Dentures: Full Dentures are used to replace the entire upper or lower arch of teeth. They are typically made of acrylic and are made to sit snugly over the gums.
Implant Dentures: Dentures secured by dental implants permanently attach dentures to the jaw using strategically placed dental implants.
Benefits of Dental Implant Secured Dentures
Dr. Upadya, a Summit, NJ dentist, will use dental implants to permanently secure a denture or partial denture for superior results when compared to traditional denture techniques and options. Many patients report that their traditional dentures will slip around in their mouth or fall out altogether. Implant-secured dentures can solve that problem and will offer many more benefits than removable dentures.
We perform every phase of the dental implant process right in our Summit, NJ area dentist office. We will surgically place the implants in the jawbone which also help maintain healthy bone structure. The implants will be used to secure a hybrid denture. Dental implant secured dentures allow patients to enjoy a diet without restriction and can help patients feel more confident in their smile.
This procedure provides several key benefits for both overall health and lifestyle:
- Reduce bone loss and shrinkage in the jaw
- No slipping or fear of teeth falling out
- Enables a healthy, varied diet
- Normal speech for confidence in social settings
- No need for the use of daily adhesives
