Do you have a few or even all of the teeth missing on one jaw? If so, you know the drawbacks that are associated with it. Everything from chewing properly (along with efficient digestion) to your confidence when you smile or speak to someone is affected by not having a complete mouthful of teeth. But here at Best Care Family Dental, we make it our goal to look after not only your optimal dental health, but also your cosmetic needs. Bear in mind, though, that our Jackson Heights dentures, which are also called removable dental bridges, are more than just an aesthetic plus. They can keep other teeth on your jaw from shifting, which leads to discomfort and possibly throwing your jaws out of their proper alignment.
There are two types of our Jackson Heights dentures: partial and complete, which are utilized depending on whether you are only replacing just some teeth or all of them on your jaw. If it's just a few, impressions will be taken and then sent to the dental lab. There, your partial dentures will be created to fit you precisely. When you wear them, they will be held in with clasps to the tooth on either side, and you will apply dental adhesive to your gum line to keep them secure. This allows you to go about your daily life, eat, speak, laugh, normally.
With complete dentures, the process is similar, but there are a few differences. For one thing, often you will need to have a few remaining teeth removed to fit our Jackson Heights dentures. This means that they gum and bone tissue need to heal and shrink naturally. It is because of this that there are two sub-categories of complete dentures: immediate and conventional. It is best to allow the bone and gum tissue a few months to shrink to the point where they will remain, allowing for a more perfect fit for your dentures. However, we also understand that for a variety of reasons, you may not want to wait. If so, immediate dentures can be placed. However, they will most likely need adjustments along the way.
