Removable Appliances in Brooklyn Heights, NY
WHAT ARE DENTURES?
Dentures are a reliable solution for replacing missing teeth and restoring the full use of a patient’s bite as well as restoring the visual appearance of a patient’s smile. Dentures are dental appliances that use artificial teeth that are held in the mouth with a base frame. Dentures come in partial sets or complete sets, and they can be permanent or removable.
WHAT ARE REMOVABLE PARTIAL DENTURES?
Removable partial dentures are dental appliances made to replace one or multiple teeth. The appliance is not permanently attached and can therefore be removed at any time to clean your natural teeth.
WHY WOULD I WANT A REMOVABLE PARTIAL DENTURE?
Partial dentures give patients the convenience of being able to replace several missing teeth with a single appliance. This option is much less expensive than cemented bridges or dental implants. Partial dentures usually require minimal reshaping of the surrounding teeth. As previously stated, removable dentures are not permanent, are not supported by dental implants, and are therefore less expensive than permanent dentures that must be supported by dental implants.
IS THIS THE BEST CHOICE FOR TOOTH REPLACEMENT?
The treatment choice of partial dentures depends on the patient’s current dental health. A removable partial denture is not as effective for chewing as cemented bridges and implants. As a removable appliance, it may move up and down during eating. However, in some cases there aren’t enough teeth to support a bridge, and implants may not be an option, leaving a partial denture as the best alternative.
