Dentures are removable prosthetic teeth used to replace missing teeth. Attached to a pink or gum-colored base, these prosthetic teeth are natural and beautiful for a more confident smile. There are two types of dentures: complete and partial. Complete dentures, or full dentures, are used to replace all of the teeth in the upper or lower arches, or both. Partial dentures, most often supported by a metal framework, are used when some natural teeth still remain. Our practiced dentist, Dr. DeLapa, will work with you to determine which type of denture will work best for your smile.
We offer both complete and partial dentures in South Salem, New York. Your dentures will be custom made and suited perfectly to your jaw and smile. The process to make dentures takes a number of weeks. During this time, your dentures are made according to specific measurements and molds while your gums heal. Using dentures before your gums heal can lead to multiple complications. You will try on multiple temporary dentures to ensure your final dentures will fit perfectly. Our friendly dental team will work with you through each step of the process. To learn more about complete and partial dentures and how they can restore your smile, we invite you to contact our dental office today.
