Dentures are restorative dental treatments that replace whole rows or arches of missing teeth. Dr. Haim Fedida provides dentures to his patients in Jackson Heights, NY. As a dental implant dentist, Dr. Fedida recommends that patients receive full or partial dentures supported by dental implants.
Implant-secured dentures provide better bone retention and stability to improve long-term bone health. Although they do not use adhesives, they can still allow patients to speak and bite comfortably without the fear of slipping. Fixed dentures supported by dental implants also do not have dietary restrictions.
Why Replace Missing Teeth?
Missing teeth can cause:
- Tooth decay
- Gum disease
- Shifting teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Facial sagging
- Speech problems
- Difficulty biting and chewing
- Further bone loss
If you have multiple missing teeth, your chance of encountering these problems increases. Many patients who have multiple missing teeth or even rows of missing teeth require immediate care.
Partial dentures are replacement teeth made up of a plastic base with a metal framework. Patients with multiple consecutive missing teeth or full rows of teeth can restore gaps in their smile with partial dentures. Traditional partial dentures simply attach to adjacent natural teeth and do not fully restore the function of the bite. When secured with dental implants, partial dentures become a more permanent solution.
Full dentures benefit patients with full arches of missing teeth. Although treatment with implant-supported dentures may take longer than removable or partial dentures, they provide long-term benefits. Dental implants secure dentures in place so there is no risk of slippage. In addition, dental implants help maintain the bone structure and restore the full function of the bite. We are able to convert existing dentures into fixed, implant-supported dentures. Traditional full dentures require messy adhesives and dietary restrictions. Implant-supported dentures do not require regular maintenance or a specialized diet.
