What Are Dentures?

General wear and tear on your teeth can lead to missing teeth and gum tissue. Dentures are a more traditional avenue to restore your smile. Having gaps in your teeth can erode your confidence and make you feel self-conscious. We always want our patients to feel happy to show off their smile which is why we offer high-quality dentures as part of our suite of restorative dental services.

What Are Dentures?

Modern dental technology has vastly improved the fit, feel, and function of dentures meaning they are more natural-looking than ever before. Dentures are supported by your gum tissue and jaw.

There are a number of different types of dentures available:

Full Dentures

Full dentures are the perfect option for you if you have had all of your natural teeth removed, while partial dentures can be a great alternative if you have only lost some of your teeth.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are attached to a metal frame and are secured to existing teeth in order to fill in empty spaces.

Removable Dentures

Removable dentures are fixed to the gums with adhesives which means you can have a much better chewing ability than without dentures.

Implant-Retained Dentures

Dentures are frequently used in combination with dental implants which are called implant-retained dentures.

Implant-retained dentures are a great way to restore your confidence as they have a more natural look and can be placed over dental implants. The beauty of implant-retained dentures is they look, function, and give you the same sensation as your natural teeth. There is also the benefit of no movement because they are anchored to dental implants. Dentures can also be used as a temporary option if you wish to have further work done on your mouth.

How to Maintain Oral Health with Dentures

All types of dentures need proper care and you will also need to continue to maintain your oral hygiene even if all of your natural teeth have been removed. Your dentist can advise you on the best cleaning methods to keep your dentures feeling and looking fresh.

All of our dental treatments at Skyline Dental Designs are dedicated to helping you restore and improve your natural teeth, but when teeth do need to be replaced, dentures are often the best choice.

Top Family Dentist in Weehawken, NJ

Loved my experience here! The staff is friendly and welcoming, and the office is clean and beautiful. Dr. Kaplan was great - he was friendly, didn't rush anything, answered all of my questions, and did my teeth cleaning himself. Very happy to have Skyline Dental for my future dentist visits.

I have been seeing Dr. Kaplan for a couple of months to correct some cavities and look into orthodontics options. I'm very pleased with this practice overall as well as with the doctor. The staff is kind and responsive, the doctor is very attentive and gives you time if you have questions. Very recommended!

Seamless process from start to finish. Dr. Kaplan is the most thorough dentist I've been to. He took the time to get to know me and my oral health/goals. Explained my options and treatment plan. His actual treatment (for fillings) was completely painless!
