Do you have missing teeth that need to be replaced, and you are thinking about getting dentures? If so, you will definitely want to come and visit us at our dental practice, Middle Village Dental Group. At our practice, our dentist can provide you with excellent teeth restorations in Ridgewood which are both attractive and functional.
We have four excellent dentists on staff. They are: Dr. Anatoliy Barak; Dr. Nandor Halpert, Dr. Susanna Isaacs; and Dr. Scott Froum. When you come to our dental practice, our dentist will first give you a thorough exam to help determine which the best way is for you to replace your missing teeth. Dentures are still a very popular teeth replacement method. Today, some patients are choosing to get dental implants to help to securely hold their dentures in place. However, this is solely an option and not a necessity. Our teeth restorations in Ridgewood will be extremely comfortable for our patient, and well-fitting as well. Our goal is to make sure that your dentures are comfortable, good-looking, and totally functional. When your dentures are well fitting, there is much less chance that they will slip or cause you any type of embarrassment. Dental implants can be used to secure full dentures in place, and are especially helpful on lower dentures
When you have missing teeth, you can get fixed or removable bridges or dentures. Bridges are used when you have one or several missing teeth in a row. Dentures are used when you need a full replacement of an entire row of teeth. If you have only a few remaining teeth in your top or bottom row, our dentist may recommend that they are extracted so that you can get full dentures. Even if you only have several missing teeth, it is important that they are replaced using dental bridges. When there is a gap between the teeth in your mouth, it is very likely that your other teeth will shift and try to fill in the gap. This can cause serious bite and jaw problems down the road. A bridge or dentures will also help to maintain the shape of your face and alleviate any stress on your bite. When you have teeth extracted and you are getting full dentures, you will first get immediate dentures while your gums heal. Once your gums have completed healing, in about six weeks, our dentist will fit you for permanent dentures. Immediate dentures are never meant to be worn for any extended period it of time and would ultimately be very uncomfortable for your gums if you did.
