Dr. Maurice Benjamin provides traditional and implant-supported dentures at his Brooklyn and Manhattan, NY, offices. These custom restorations are easy to maintain, and they can provide you with an attractive, natural-looking smile. He uses advanced techniques and high-quality materials to create personalized restorations. Your dentures will fit securely and comfortably around your gums to restore form and function. With dental implant-supported dentures, your restored smile can provide virtually the same level of function as a healthy set of natural teeth.
Are You a Candidate for Dentures?
If you are missing several teeth, you are probably a candidate for dentures. Before you receive your denture, your gums and any remaining teeth should be free of disease or decay. Removable dentures do not require surgery or invasive preparatory treatments. However, dental implants will require a certain amount of bone tissue in the jaw. If you have delayed addressing missing teeth for many years, you may require a bone graft in order to be eligible for implants.
Our custom restorations are easy to maintain, and they can provide you with an attractive, natural-looking smile.
Dr. Benjamin offers implant-supported dentures, which are attached to the jawbone using titanium posts. Implant-supported dentures give you a greater degree of stability and security than traditional dentures provide. You will be able to eat tough foods and speak properly without worrying about the denture shifting. Once your implants are in place, they will prevent further bone atrophy, meaning you may never require adjustments to the fit of your denture.
Creating and Placing Your Personalized Denture
First, Dr. Benjamin will take impressions of your jaws (and dental implants, if you choose this support method). Our lab will use these impressions to create a custom restoration that closely conforms to your gums and complements your facial features.
Your new restoration will be made with durable, lifelike materials. Once the restoration is finished, you will come back to our office for a fitting. Dr. Benjamin is happy to make any adjustments needed to make sure that your new denture meets your expectations.
Benefits of Dentures
Missing teeth can present negative oral health and aesthetic effects, and dentures can alleviate many of those problems. Our meticulously crafted prosthetics will fit precisely, so you will be able to eat a complete diet and speak with greater clarity. Additionally, your restoration will support your lips and cheeks to prevent an aged, sunken look. Your denture can also eliminate the feelings of self-consciousness that can result from missing teeth.
Caring for Dentures
Although dentures do not decay, they still require both daily at-home care and periodic checkups with your dentist. Dr. Benjamin will instruct you in how to care for your denture and maintain your oral health as a denture wearer.
