Dentures for Patients in Parsippany
Our goal is to give patients a healthy, beautiful smile that provides confidence and overall wellness. If your smile is missing teeth, it can be difficult to perform basic functions, such as biting and chewing nutritious foods. Many patients we see who are missing teeth also suffer from embarrassment and are afraid to smile, even in the company of close friends and family. No matter the reason you’ve lost teeth, from genetic disorders to injury and dental disease, you should never be ashamed. Our goal is to restore your oral health with full dentures or a partial denture.
At Rauchberg Dental Group, we provide replacement teeth made from advanced dental materials. Dr. Rauchberg pays close attention to detail, creating a prosthetic that closely matches gum color. In addition, we take the tooth size, shape, and color into consideration, so that your full denture or partial denture will look as close to your natural smile as possible.
What is a Partial Denture?
A partial denture is a prosthetic that replaces several missing teeth in one arch. Partial dentures consist of a gum-colored base with replacement teeth that fit like a puzzle with your existing teeth. Dr. Rauchberg designs your prosthetic with both aesthetics and function in mind, making sure that the teeth in your partial denture blends with your natural smile. Partial dentures can be either removable or fixed. Dr. Rauchberg will talk with you about your options and which type of partial denture is right for you.
What are Full Dentures?
Patients missing a full arch of teeth, or both arches, are candidates for full dentures. A complete set of replacement teeth is attached to the base and custom fit for your mouth. Full dentures are molded to conform to your gums and jawbone ridge and are held in place naturally. In addition, the muscles in and around your mouth will adjust to help secure your full dentures. If you require a lower denture, Dr. Rauchberg may suggest saving any remaining natural teeth and fitting you with an overdenture for added support.
A comfortable fit is imperative with a full denture or partial. When you experience tooth loss, the bone and gum may shrink over time. A denture or partial that had a very precise fit a first, may begin to slip or click. Denture creams and adhesives may temporarily solve the problem, but a good denture will fit snugly without these aids. If your full denture or partial slides, or makes speaking difficult, make sure to visit our Parsippany family dental practice as soon as you can. Dr. Rauchberg can refit your denture or partial and alleviate any discomfort.
By replacing teeth, dentures and partials return function allowing you to eat and chew comfortably. And because your teeth support full cheeks, dentures help restore a younger look by filling out a sunken appearance. With a fully restored set of teeth, you’ll have the self-assurance to laugh and smile with friends and family. If you're missing teeth, don't let it affect your oral health and take away your quality of life.
