Complete Dentures & Partial Dentures in Brewster, NY

Do you have trouble chewing food because of missing teeth? Do you have an oral health disease that requires tooth extraction? A partial or complete denture in Brewster might be the answer for you. Learn more about the different types of dentures available at our practice.

What Are Complete and Partial Dentures?

Dentures are removable replacements for missing teeth and the tissues that surround your teeth. Affordable quality dentures and implants are available in partial and complete options. In general, a dentist may suggest partial dentures when you still have some of your natural teeth. You could be a candidate for full dentures if all of your teeth are missing.

Types of Removable Dentures

Within the categories of complete and partial dentures there are several types of dentures. Take a look at the descriptions of each below. Talk to one of our professional staff members to see which type of dentures may be the best fit for you.

Complete Dentures

Complete denture prosthodontics are removable dental prostheses that can replace all of the teeth in an arch, which is either the upper or lower teeth. Some people may have just one complete denture, whereas others may have two.

When it comes to methods for replacing all of the teeth in an arch, complete dentures cost the least. The number of steps needed to fit your complete dentures is also the fewest among other treatments. Getting a conventional complete denture in Brewster involves removing all of the teeth from an arch and waiting at least eight weeks for the gums to heal before making the prosthesis. The wait ensures that the denture will fit correctly.

Transitional Partial Dentures

Transitional dentures are removable partial dentures or RPDs that serve as temporary prostheses. Dentists recommend them for patients who are transitioning from one condition to another. They’re an immediate solution for replacing missing teeth.

For example, you might get a transitional partial denture during the process of removing damaged teeth. The transitional denture replaces the missing teeth temporarily. As more teeth are removed, the dentist adds more teeth to the prosthesis. Once all of your teeth are extracted from an arch and your gums heal, you discard the transitional RPD and replace it with a more permanent solution such as a conventional denture.

Removable Partial Dentures

A removable partial denture is a prosthesis with replacement teeth attached to a gum-colored base. Sometimes a metal framework holds the denture in place during use. You could have a removable partial denture for one tooth or several teeth. Along with filling the spaces that missing teeth leave behind, a partial removable denture prevents your remaining teeth from moving around.

Call our office if you think that a removable partial denture in Brewster might work for you. Our dentists can give you more information about flexible removable partial dentures. We can also give you an estimate for the removable partial denture cost after assessing your oral health.

Immediate Dentures

An immediate denture is a type of full denture that your dentist gives you on the same day that your natural teeth are removed. It keeps you from having to go without teeth while you wait for you gums to heal so the final denture can be placed.

Implant-Supported Dentures

Also a type of full denture, an implant-supported denture is attached to dental implants. It doesn’t rest on the gums like other dentures. Dentists generally suggest denture implants for people who don’t have any teeth but have enough jawbone to support implants.

There are two types of implant-retained dentures. Ball-retained dentures have sockets that connect to ball-shaped metal attachments on the implants. The sockets and ball attachments could be switched in some cases. Bar-retained dentures snap onto two to five implants via a thin metal bar that’s fixed with clips or some other attaching mechanism.

Contact our office if you’re interested in implant dentures. We can give you a denture implants cost estimate after a consultation. Call us at (845) 764-9263 today to schedule your appointment or book an appointment online.
