Dentures for the modern world
At Neighborhood Smiles in Belleville, we understand that suffering the loss of your natural teeth can be traumatic. It really is losing an important part of who you are as a person. Thankfully, with advances in modern dentistry, todays dentures are a far cry from those of generations past. Modern dentures are comfortable, secure, and natural looking so you can forget about your teeth and get back to enjoying the things that matter most.
What are my options?
At Neighborhood Smiles, we have several denture options available – which is right for you will be determined in a comprehensive consultation with your Belleville dentist. Things such as your current state of oral health, facial shape and contour, complexion, age, budget, and desired results will be taken into consideration.
If you have some healthy teeth remaining, we will do our best to preserve them as best as possible – a partial denture can complete your smile. If you are missing all of your teeth you will require a full set of dentures.
If you have suffered from jawbone deterioration or atrophy due to missing teeth and are not a candidate for dental implants, we will suggest traditional dentures. Traditional dentures are bonded with a special denture adhesive to the surface of the gums. Your dentures will be artfully crafted with precision technology to look, feel, and function just like your natural teeth.
If Dr. Yakowicz determines you have sufficient jawbone health to support dental implants, he will suggest implant supported dentures. This is the most recommended tooth replacement solution – by doctors and patients alike. Dental implants are surgically inserted into the gums to serve as anchors for stabilized dentures. This is the most secure, life-like way to replace teeth with dentures. Dental implants also help preserve jawbone health and facial structure.
