Dentures & Partials in Rego Park, NY

Here in our offices at Dental Arts Rego Park, we strive to provide the best dental care in Rego Park and the surrounding area. This includes providing both full and partial dentures. Dentures are a set of custom-made replacements for missing teeth and the surrounding tissues that are removable.

Some Problems Caused by Missing Teeth

If you seem to have lost one or more of your permanent teeth, you have more to worry about than the way you look.

  • Your teeth are indeed a vital part of your face’s structure, so missing teeth can eventually cause your facial muscles to give in to gravity and sag, in turn making you look much older. You may have problems pronouncing some words as well.
  • If you are missing several teeth, you could find it hard to chew some foods, and they must make some significant changes in the way you eat. It can have a deleterious effect on your health, for the fact that foods hardest to chew have the best nutritional value for you; such as nuts, apples, and bread that is whole grain. The easier to eat foods are usually those that have been highly processed and have little nutritional value.
  • Your teeth are not attached to your jawbone as securely as you probably think they are, so the teeth on both sides of a possible gap can, over time, lean toward the space. The crooked teeth are hard to keep clean but will affect the way you bite by the way your lower and upper sets of teeth are coming together.

If you are missing several teeth together, dentures are likely a good option for you.

Partial Vs. Full Dentures

Dentures near you will be custom-made for each patient from the impressions that were taken in your mouth. It will depend on the number of teeth you have lost, as to the type of denture that will be most suited for your situation. Your ideal patient is the one who is missing several of their teeth in a row, and who has good oral health.

If you happen to be missing all, or about all, of the teeth that follow your dental arch, then full dentures might be what you need. If you are missing just a few teeth, a partial denture might be the best solution for you.

They make the base of a set of dentures out of a flesh-colored acrylic or plastic that will rest on your gums and has been perfectly molded so it will fit comfortably and snugly. Your upper set will cover the palate or rather the roof of the mouth. There will be a thin layer of saliva that wets the area between your dentures and the gums to form a seal and anchors the dentures. Therefore, having dry mouth can be a reason your dentures will loosen. Since there must be sufficient area for your tongue, the lower set of dentures is made in a horseshoe-shaped, held in place by the muscles of your cheek and tongue.

A partial is a plate that has one or more prosthetic teeth on it. If you have healthy and sufficient natural teeth, then a dental bridge is possible to use. Bridges are called bridges because they can bridge the gap in between two areas. A false tooth is then anchored to crowns that are on either side of that gap; however, if the natural teeth are not in good shape, the prosthetic tooth could be attached to an implant that has been embedded in your jaw.

It is true that it takes time to get used to wearing dentures and it will never be the same as natural teeth; the false teeth made today are more natural appearing and more comfortable than those made ten years ago.

Dr. Zina and her staff are amazing. I felt very informed about the procedure before hand. They even gave me tips to heal and recover as quickly and comfortably as possible. Overall, a great experience and very happy I chose this practice for my wisdom teeth removal.

It was wonderful being able to remove my teeth and get my new set on the same day. I didn’t have to go to work with no teeth. The staff was wonderful and told me what to expect every step of the way. The staff was awesome very accommodating, they made sure that I was comfortable.

Dr. Zina made me feel so comfortable that I now bring my entire family to see her. She is friendly and sweet and has a very welcoming personality.

Faye Bates

This office is wonderful- very clean facility with friendly and courteous staff. Dr. Zina Gotlieb is so nice and personable, and she spent more time counseling and answering questions than I have experienced at any other dental office. And she did not try to push any unnecessary treatments. I highly recommend this practice!
