The days of traditional, full set dentures are slowly being replaced by more diverse types of dentures. For example, there are digital dentures that involve the use of digital imagery to take a complete image of your gum tissue, bone structure, and teeth. The use of digital X-ray to make digital dentures reduces the number of visits to the dentist for the completed procedure. It also helps the dentist to keep a permanent record of your dental care in case you need to replace your dentures. There are several types of partial dentures, such as a cast partial denture or a flipper.
Here at your dental professional at Oasis Dental in Hempstead, NY we use a variety of denture treatments. These include Flexite, Valplast, Portrait IPN Densply, and Vatallium 2000 Densply. Our array of denture options lets us choose the best type for your denture needs. As technology evolves and additional denture options become available, we will do the necessary research to determine if these denture treatments are the best option for our patients.
Dentures are a solution for anyone who has lost some or all of their permanent teeth. Younger people especially those who play high-impact sports, such as soccer or basketball, are more likely to need dentures due to sporting accidents. Adults who are involved in car accidents or work-related accidents may also be in line for dentures if they lose more than one tooth at a time. The reality is that with the advanced treatments and technologies used for making dentures today, you can’t even tell them most people are wearing dentures. They look like a natural part of their smile. Contact our offices at Oasis Dental to schedule an appointment for dentures.
