Dentures in Oyster Bay
When you come to Corbin Dental for dentures, we’ll help you evaluate what type you need and the best way to make them comfortably fit in your mouth. Each patient has different requirements for their dentures, making it crucial that we understand your lifestyle and what type of denture you feel most comfortable with.
Different types of dentures include:
Partial dentures function as removable replacements for one or more missing teeth. You’ll receive a custom set of dentures that fits into your upper or lower jaw and fills the spaces with realistic artificial teeth.
Full dentures replace multiple missing natural teeth. Two full-arch pieces fit onto your upper or lower jaw, with some patients needing to fit an entire new set of teeth.
Permanent dentures require minor surgery, during which our dental professionals place metal posts into your jawbone. Dentures attach to these implants and become permanent, needing no more than your regular daily dental care.
How Dentures Work
Whichever type of dentures you need, the procedure to create them remains the same.
1. Dental Exam
At Corbin Dental at Oyster Bay, we begin with an examination to ensure that you have healthy gums and that you’re a good candidate for dentures. Next, we’ll take multiple impressions of your mouth and send them to a dental laboratory where they can create your dentures.
Once your dentures arrive, we’ll call you in and fit them in your mouth. We’ll ensure that you can smile and talk comfortably, making any adjustments that we can to make them fit. If you choose permanent dentures, we’ll place your dental implants, then wait for your jaw to heal before we place your permanent dentures.
After you receive your dentures, continue to attend regular dental checkups so our team can track any changes in your gum line or jaw function. You can remove and brush your dentures with a soft toothbrush and toothpaste. If you experience unusual pain or discomfort while wearing your dentures, come see us so we can evaluate what’s going on and do what we can to help.
