Also known as "complete dentures," a full set of dentures replaces all of the upper and/or lower teeth once gum tissue has healed from any tooth extraction. The
first advantage of a well-fitting denture is no soreness when you eat and the
ability to chew food well. The second
advantage is the ability to smile with confidence. When done well, dentures can look beautiful
and natural and feel great.
Before full dentures can completely replace missing teeth in Sartoga Springs, NY, Dr. Moskowitz can provide what are known as immediate dentures. These appliances allow patients to use a set of false teeth while the gum tissue is healing. Once the gums have healed, Dr. Moskowitz can reline the full set of dentures for an ideal fit.
Unlike full dentures, partial dentures are provided when there are healthy natural teeth that remain in the mouth. The partial dentures are customized sets of false teeth that fit around the natural teeth, and are removable. The partial denture fills in the spaces left by missing teeth, which helps prevent further tooth loss and misalignment due to shifting.
first advantage to a partial denture is that it makes use of remaining teeth to
achieve comfortable stability. The second advantage to partial dentures is
that they prevent shifting of unopposed teeth and restore the ability to chew
and smile again.
