Dentures

When extraction of all teeth is necessary, dentures can provide a second chance at a beautiful smile and help to maintain nutrition, maintain the shape of your face and improve speech. Sometimes complete dentures are not necessary, and partial dentures can replace multiple missing teeth, secured to your remaining teeth with clasps. With immediate dentures, you can have a full set of teeth while you are waiting for your gums to heal and your bone to realign after having teeth removed. No matter which kind of dentures you choose, you can be assured to receive natural-looking dentures that match your facial structure and desired tooth color.

What are dental implants?

Dental implants from AK Dental Arts in Staten Island NY

Implants are small metal cylinders placed within the bone where you are missing a tooth. By replacing missing teeth, implants help you achieve aesthetics and function. For people who have lost teeth, they can be the best way to restore the looks and chewing ability. They can be placed almost painlessly and most patients don’t even know they are there.

Implants are used for single tooth replacements, multiple tooth replacements, or to attach to a partial or full denture for support and retention.

There may be multiple ways implants can be used to help your situation. Call us today at 718-448-3366 to allow us to help you make a decision.
