Denture & PartialRiverhead, Roslyn and Nesconset, NY

A denture is a custom prosthetic device that our dentists use to replace missing teeth. It can either be fixed in place or removable. If you have lost all or most of the arch of teeth from gum disease, tooth decay, or trauma to the mouth, you can replace them with a denture.

Bella Smiles provides dentures in Riverhead, Roslyn, and Nesconset. Dentures are one of the restorative dentistry services our dentists provide to our patients in Long Island, NY.

No one needs to go through life missing any teeth. If you have an entire row of teeth missing, your face will begin to appear sunken in, adding years to your appearance. Replacing that arch of teeth will fill out the shape of your face, giving you a more balanced and normal appearance. Getting a denture allows you to smile, eat, and speak with greater confidence and comfort.

Our dentists suggest full dentures to replace a full top or bottom arch of teeth. Traditionally, they are removable making them easy to clean and maintain. However, we can now secure a denture permanently with dental implants.

Implant-supported dentures have many added benefits for your oral health and quality of life. They are the next best thing to your natural teeth.

Types of Dentures

Bella Smiles in Riverhead, Roslyn, and Nesconset offers natural-looking cosmetic dentures. We can also secure them with dental implants using the All-On-4 implant method.

Dentures are sets of false teeth that will replace all your lost teeth. Although dentures have long been removable appliances, today’s patients can enjoy the benefits of fixed dentures. This includes secure teeth, a varied diet, and normal speech. Dr. Diana Pop will work with you to determine the best option for your overall health and cosmetic concerns.

Partial Denture: Similar to a dental bridge, a partial denture can replace several consecutive missing teeth. We can provide temporary removable partial dentures, or permanently-secure them to your mouth using dental implants.

Full Dentures: Full Dentures can replace the entire upper or lower arch of teeth, or both arches. Removable dentures have come a long way. Our complete dentures provide beautiful results using quality materials. Dr. Pop will recommend choosing implant-supported dentures for the most stable and healthiest result.

Implant Dentures: These types of dentures are sometimes called All-on-4 dental implants. The dentist attaches them to the jaw using strategically placed dental implants. Dental implant-secured dentures provide the highest rate of patient satisfaction, beauty, and .

Implant-Secured Dentures

Dr. Pop can permanently secure your new cosmetic denture or partial denture to your mouth using dental implants. You will get superior results when compared to traditional dentures with the All-on-4® dental implant procedure. The procedure provides several key benefits for both overall health and lifestyle:

  • Reduce bone loss and shrinkage in the jaw
  • No slipping or fear of teeth falling out
  • You can eat a healthy diet
  • Normal speech for confidence in social settings
  • No need for the use of daily adhesives

If you are receiving an implant-secured denture, your dentist will surgically insert the dental implants into the jaw. They need about 3-6 months time to heal all the way. During the healing process, we may place a temporary denture to protect the gum tissue.

Once your implants heal, we will take impressions of your teeth to make a custom denture. We will permanently attach it to the implants for a secure hold. We perform all phases of the dental implant procedure in the house, from surgical to the final restoration.

Denture FAQs

Which type of denture is right for me?

To determine which type of denture is right for your smile, you will need to undergo a consultation with one of our dentists. Here, we will assess the condition of your teeth, gums, and supporting bone structure.

Today’s cosmetic dentures offer beautiful results for patients missing a full arch or all their teeth. Our experienced cosmetic and restorative dentists who work with patients to achieve a result that meets their goals.

Can anyone qualify for implant-secured dentures?

In many cases, patients will need to have enough stable, healthy bone structure to receive dental implants. You may need a bone graft if your jaw is not healthy or strong enough. However, we can discuss your options during your visit. We offer the All-On-Four procedure as a solution for edentulous patients with compromised bone tissue.

Can I sleep in dentures?

You can wear your dentures while you sleep, although we do not suggest doing this every night. Sleeping with traditional dentures on can cause a sore jaw and gums in the morning. You can sleep in implant-secured dentures because they are not removable and are comfortable all the time.
