After Dentures
This patient was missing all of her lower teeth. Not only did this make her hesitant to smile, it made many simple dental functions difficult or painful. The dentists at our Queens, NY, dentistry practice restored the aesthetics and function of her smile with customized dentures attached to mini dental implants. It's no wonder our practice has been featured in Vogue and Cosmopolitan

4 Important Reasons to Replace Missing Teeth with Dentures

Makes eating a healthy diet easier.

Fills out your cheeks, reversing the aged look that more than one missing tooth can cause. Think of it as a "denture facelift."

Boosts your self-confidence at social or business gatherings, thanks to your bright, newly restored smile.

Helps you speak more clearly, because your tongue needs teeth to correctly pronounce certain sounds.

AvaDent® Digital Dentures

Our amazingly lifelike dentures are designed using in-house digital technology. Our on-site lab technician will personally meet with you to ensure your digital dentures will fit comfortably and match your existing teeth beautifully.

Digital dentures are seven times stronger than conventional dentures and are available in traditional removable or implant-supported varieties. They are milled from a solid piece of premium dental-grade material that resists cracking and breaking.

While traditional dentures can take weeks to be crafted, fitted, and placed, high-tech digital dentures can be created and placed in just two visits to our Astoria dentistry practice

Digital dentures feature a strong acrylic base that matches the shade of your gums. The denture is bacteria-resistant, which can cut down on bad breath issues. It is also shrink-resistant to ensure a better fit for years. Meanwhile, these restorations are highly regarded for their ability to look and function just like natural teeth.

Your precise digital treatment plan is kept on file at our office, so it is easy to replace your dentures should they become lost or damaged.

Implant-Supported Dentures Versus Traditional Dentures

Traditional dentures rest on the gums, held in place through a combination of suction and a mild adhesive. Implant-supported dentures are attached directly to the jawbone using prosthetic tooth roots for exceptional stability.

Benefits of Implant-Supported Dentures

For the right candidates, our dentists recommend implant dentures over traditional dentures for several reasons:

  • Dentures supported by dental implants won't fall out or shift. 
  • With proper care, your dental implants can last a lifetime, making this procedure an excellent investment.
  • Implant-supported dentures give you a stronger bite than traditional dentures that are removable, allowing you to eat all the foods you love.
  • The implants provide the stimulation needed to stop the bone atrophy that follows tooth loss; traditional dentures don't provide this benefit.
  • You can brush and floss your implant-supported dentures just like normal teeth, with no need for removing and soaking.

Dr. Degel Discusses Mini Dental Implants

For the right candidates, mini implants are a highly beneficial tooth replacement option. They can be used when there is limited jawbone tissue in which to place an implant. In this clip, Dr. Clifford Degel, a member of the American College of Oral Implantology, talks about the many benefits of mini implants and how the implant surgery and placement of your dentures can be done in one visit. 

What to Expect When Receiving Digital Dentures

Today’s full and partial dentures are natural-looking, more comfortable than ever, and can last for decades with proper care. Plus, digital dentures make it possible to restore your bite in just two office visits.

Day of Procedure

First Appointment

We will take a precise digital impression of your teeth and gums. If you have dental implants, we will also take impressions of them. These impressions will be sent to our on-site dental lab, where your full or partial dentures will be carefully crafted using digital technology.

Second Appointment

Your dentist will work with you to fine-tune the shape, color, and fit of your dentures. When this process is complete, you can expect a bite that is comfortable, functional, and looks great.

Our Comprehensive Denture Services

Denture Repair

Should your traditional full or partial dentures crack or break, our practice offers top-quality repair services. Issues like small chips or cracks can be repaired during your appointment, but for more serious problems, like severe breaks, recreating your dentures in our lab may be recommended.

Denture Relining

Over time, your traditional dentures may not fit as well as they used to due to changes in your jaws caused by missing teeth. A reline involves our dentists reshaping the base of your dentures to help them fit better.
