Using dentures and partials to replace missing teeth
When you need to replace missing teeth, you will need to talk to your dentist about all your artificial teeth options. Whether you need a partial denture for replacing your front teeth or a complete denture to replace them all, Dr. Boris Yusupov and his team at All City Cosmetic Dental Care in South Huntington, New York, can assist. He is pleased to offer dentures and partials for patients who need to restore the function, beauty, and health of their smiles after tooth loss or extraction.
What are dentures and partials?
Dentures and partials are dental devices that are used to replace missing teeth. Dentures are prosthetic devices made from acrylic resin or metal-based materials that fit directly onto the gums. Partials, also known as partial dentures, are similar to dentures but only fill in a few gaps created by lost teeth. Both types of prosthetics can be removable or fixed permanently in the mouth with dental implants. Either option may be recommended depending on the patient’s needs and situation.
How do I care for my partial and full dentures?
Removable dentures and partials need to be taken out overnight for cleaning and soaking in a disinfectant solution. Fixed dentures and partials do not require removal, although it is still important to brush around them daily. In addition, denture adhesives and special cleaning solutions can be used to help keep them in place while maintaining their cleanliness.
