Dentures & Partials An Overview

Dentures have long been the most highly recommended option for the replacement of a full top or bottom arch of teeth. Traditionally, they have been removable for daily cleaning and maintenance but the development of dental implants has provide the ability to permanently secure your dentures with many benefits. Learn more about dental implants vs. dentures, the cost of dental implants and the benefits of dental implants.

Riverhead dentist Dr. Sal Lotardo offers natural looking cosmetic dentures which can be removable or secured with dental implants using the All-On-4 procedure. There are generally two types of dentures:

  • Full dentures: used to replace a full top or bottom arch of teeth
  • Partial dentures: similar to a dental bridge, used to replace several consecutive missing teeth

Dr. Lotardo will always recommend securing your full or partial denture whenever possible for the best comfort and long term oral health benefits:

  • The implanted post acts like a tooth root and reduces bone loss in the jaw which can affect the fit of the bite and your appearance
  • No need for daily adhesives
  • Enables a varied, healthy diet and normal speech
