Dentures - Long Island City, NY.
What are they?
Dentures are false teeth. They are used to replace all of your missing teeth or just some of them. When you replace all of them they are called complete dentures and when you replace some of them they are called partial dentures. Dentures that are given right after teeth are extracted are called immediate dentures.
Dentures are typically made from acrylic. You may choose the color of the teeth as well. Dentures take approximately 5 visits to make. Just like how custom suits and wedding dresses require multiple fittings, so does your personalized dentures.
Our dentists at 1311 Jackson Ave Dental would like to remind everyone that dentures are not a replacement for teeth. Dentures are a replacement for no teeth. Please be very aware of that distinction. If you would like a replacement for teeth then please consider either tooth bridges or dental implants.
Individuals who end up like the above do not arrive there overnight. It is an accumulation of "decisions" to not replace teeth over many years.
Also notice how the teeth start to flare and drift all over the place once you start missing teeth. How else would you get a tooth to be so sideways?
What if I don't want to replace any teeth?
If you start lose a tooth and don't replace it. You may get by for awhile but it sets a precedent for every dental emergency that comes afterwards. You may decide to not replace the second, the third, and so on. Eventually you end up at this stage.
What do you offer?
Unfortunately we are currently not making any dentures at our office due to our patient demographic. The vast majority of all of our patients are in between the ages of 25-35 so we do not have the patient base for dentures.
It does not make any sense for us to stock for a procedure which we have very low volume for. We sincerely apologize!
