Dentures

dentures_1Patients who experience tooth loss often seek a youthful smile with dentures treatment.
Tooth loss can cause patients to appear beyond their age and lead to a poor diet of only soft foods. Additionally, loss of teeth can result a deterioration of confidence, fear of social events, and even an unwillingness to smile fully. With dentures, you can regain your self-esteem, maintain a healthy diet, and show off a smile that depicts your inner youth. At Nosov Cosmetic Dentistry, we provide full and partial dentures in Wantagh. Dr. Julia Nosov and Dr. Michael Nosov will help you determine which type of dentures will best suit your individual needs.

What are Dentures?

Dentures, also known as false teeth, provide a restored smile to patients who may not qualify for dental implants or other more permanent dental solutions. At Nosov Cosmetic Dentistry, we offer full and complete dentures, giving patients an enhanced smile when they experience several or complete tooth loss. Possible reasons for tooth loss include:

Decay When tooth pulp & nerves decay, the tooth will die & fall out.
Periodontal Disease Infected gum tissue can lead to loss of supporting bone, resulting in tooth loss.
Smoking Smokers are more likely to lose teeth, as there is an increase in plaque build-up and loss of bone within the jaw.
Age As we age, tooth loss can occur due to lost density in the jaw & receding gums.
Cancer Saliva helps prevent tooth decay. Chemotherapy, however, can cause dry mouth, resulting in easier decay of teeth that can lead to tooth loss.
Poor Hygiene Permanent plaque build-up leads to infection that can result tooth loss.
Injury or trauma Often seen in children, common sports injuries or accidents can lead to lost teeth.
Infection Infection weakens gum tissue and can cause teeth to fall out more easily when not taken care of.

Decay, periodontal disease, smoking, and age are all factors that can result in missing teeth, but with full and partial dentures, maintaining the confidence of a beautiful smile is one thing you won’t be missing.

How can full or partial dentures benefit me?

When natural teeth have been lost, full or partial dentures can provide you with the facial support and aesthetic appeal you desire. Full dentures benefit patients who experience complete tooth loss and may be used once teeth have been removed and the gums have fully healed. Partial dentures however, provide patients with a removable fractional bridge or replacement teeth specific to an area where teeth have been lost. In either case, dentures are removable, and must be cleaned and properly cared for. Although dentures do not require surgery, they are not a permanent solution compared to other more involved dental procedures, such as dental implants, or bone grafting. They can however, provide lasting impressions and fit comfortably to gums. Discuss with Dr. Julia Nosov or Dr. Michael Nosov if dentures are the best restoration for your situation.
