New York City Prosthetic Dentistry

Prosthetic dentistry can be used to repair or restore smiles and oral functions. Missing teeth aren’t just a cosmetic blemish but they can also impair a patient’s ability to eat and speak. When a tooth is lost, there is the possibility of other teeth shifting to occupy this space, and while moving teeth can then, in turn, become crooked. Treat these issues sooner than later with our prosthetic solutions.

Is Prosthetic Dentistry Right For Me?

If you have missing teeth, or if your teeth can’t be restored with other treatments, prosthetic dentistry may be right for you. Each situation is unique and we will need to evaluate you in order to recommend the best treatment option. Prosthetic dentistry may be the best solution and in that case you will have two options for dentures which require a different time commitment.

Dental bridges and dentures are treatment options for people who have lost their teeth. Though both options can be installed for you in less than a month, the dentist will walk you through a few key differences and will help you decide what is the best option for your situation.

You will have two approaches to fitting your dentures. The first and immediate approach will allow you to have your dentures the same day. With conventional dentures, you’ll typically wait 8 to 12 weeks after your teeth have been extracted for the dentures to be made.

Another treatment option is dental bridges. Dental Bridges can be fixed or removable and will be made to match the color of your gum and other teeth to create a natural look and feel. A removable dental bridge typically fills the gap between two healthy teeth while a fixed dental bridge is permanently fixed to the jawbone with implant screws. The removable dental bridge may feel bulky and uncomfortable at first, but will become less noticeable over time.

Cosmetic Dentistry

Missing teeth can cause your remaining teeth to shift, and therefore affect your bite, your ability to chew or talk, and potentially affect the symmetry of your face. Prosthetic dentistry provides two solutions to resolve the issue of missing teeth. While both Bridges and Dentures fill spaces between teeth, it’s important to understand which option is better for your case. Dental Bridges act as a restorative bridge across a gap of missing teeth, usually bonded to your teeth permanently. Dentures are made as a removable plate affixed with your permanent teeth. Our experienced team will be happy to help you understand what the best prosthetic dentistry solution for your situation would be. Contact us today to schedule a complimentary consultation.
