Tooth loss has many drawbacks, including lowered self-esteem and reduced bite function. But missing teeth can also make speaking difficult and impact your oral health.

Fortunately, modern dentures in Midtown, NY, are an excellent way to restore your smile when teeth are missing. They are practical, affordable, beautiful, and they restore function. So you’ll be smiling with ease and enjoying your favorite meals again!

Of course, dentures are only one of the teeth replacement options we offer in New York, NY. And it’s essential to learn whether you’re a candidate for dentures and how they work.

How Dentures in Midtown Work

There are three types of dentures: complete, partial, and implant-retained. And each option is custom-made to work with and complement your smile.

Complete Dentures

Complete dentures take over for total tooth loss. Our full dentures are prosthetic teeth on a plate or arch that depend on suction and gravity for stability.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are like complete dentures, but prosthetic teeth are situated on an arch and fill in only the spaces where natural teeth are missing.

Implant-Retained Dentures

Some patients prefer a more stable or fixed tooth replacement option. Your Midtown dentist uses four to six dental implants to secure your denture to the jaw. We also offer implant-supported bridges.

Learn Whether You’re a Candidate for Dentures

We start you with a consultation for options like cosmetic dentistry and tooth replacement. Your dentist can better determine whether dentures are suitable for your tooth replacement and smile goals at this visit.

Fortunately, dentures and partials work well for most patients seeking tooth replacement. Your dentist will talk to you about what to expect with dentures.
