Restore Your Bite
If you are one of thousands of people suffering with tooth loss due to injury or dental disease, dentures can make a real difference in your quality of life. Whether you need to replace a few missing teeth or a full set, dentures will bring back your confident smile and allow you to once again enjoy all the foods you love. The dentures provided by the dentists at Greater Long Island Dental are of the highest quality, created with skill developed through years of working with denture patients. Dental technology has improved dentures, so the varieties available now fit more precisely and look better than the ones your parents may have worn. Today, dentures can be supported by implants or carefully crafted to achieve a snug fit onto the gums. The best type for your individual situation can be determined in a personal consultation with one of our expert dentists.

The latest technology in dentistry allows your denture appliance to attach securely to dental implants placed in the jawbone. Strong, virtually indestructible titanium implants are placed by an oral surgeon, and these implants serve as prosthetic roots for your new teeth. There are many benefits to using this process, including the prevention of bone recession. When teeth are lost, the jaw bone begins to deteriorate, which can potentially lead to further tooth loss. Implants are perceived by the body to be natural roots, halting the atrophy of the jaw bone permanently.
Other benefits of implant-supported dentures include greater freedom and confidence. Implant-supported dentures and partial bridges are firmly attached, so slippage is never an issue. You can eat most any food and speak clearly without worrying that your dentures might shift out of place.
Permanent Fixed Dentures
Other options for Greater Long Island Dental patients include permanent fixed partials, also called dental bridges. This appliance attaches to two dental crowns placed on your teeth. Your new artificial teeth blend beautifully with your natural teeth and also serve to prevent the existing teeth from changing position.
At Greater Long Island Dental, we're proud of the quality of our traditional complete and partial dentures. We take time with each patient, conducting a thorough exam to ensure a custom fit. Your dentures will be carefully crafted to fit snugly, yet gently onto your gums. These dentures are comfortable and designed to stay secure without slipping. Partial dentures, or bridges, are attached to surrounding healthy teeth or dental crowns, and are easily removable for cleaning. Made of acrylic, these prosthetics beautifully mimic the look of your natural teeth and gums, and will encourage you to smile without hesitation as you enjoy the good life again in your social circle.
