Having a full set of teeth is about more than appearance. There are also practical reasons for filling the empty space where you used to have teeth. Here at the dental practice of Laurence K. Levy, DMD, you can get partial or complete sets of our Middletown dentures
. Virtually anyone is qualified to do so.
Dentures are removable appliances. Unlike with fixed bridges, which are also used to replace multiple teeth, you won't need to have your surrounding teeth affected. For partial dentures, clasps will attach to the neighboring teeth. For both partials and complete, our Middletown dentures
are also secured in place with dental adhesive. When you want to put them in, apply the adhesive. Take them out so you can clean them, and also to clean your gums properly. The process of getting them is fairly simple. You'll come in to our office and have our dentist take impressions. The dental lab will get those impressions and make your dentures. They are constructed on a pink plastic base, the color blending in with that of your gums. The structure is supported with a metal framework. On top of the base is the applicable number of prosthetic teeth. When you wear our Middletown dentures
, you will have back your smile the way it was meant to be. In addition, your other teeth won't shift, possibly leading to discomfort and misaligned jaws. Best of all, you can chew your food.
Unlike with dental implants, you won't have to undergo jaw testing, nor is there any necessity for oral surgery of any kind. So if you have any lost teeth, or possibly all of them on one jaw are gone, you should reach out to our office so that we can schedule an appointment for you to come in and get started on a new set of dentures.
