Overcome tooth loss with natural-looking dentures in North Brunswick. Schedule a consultation with our friendly and professional to see if dentures are right for you.
Tooth loss can be a serious problem that affects not only your ability to eat and chew but your overall self-confidence. At Your Expressions Family Dentistry, we want to help you overcome tooth loss and restore your smile with high-quality dentures. Depending on your needs, we may recommend traditional dentures or fixed dentures.
Dentures are removable dental prosthetics that we use to replace missing teeth. Our office offers dentures made from high-quality acrylic and other dental-grade materials to recreate the natural look, function and strength of your teeth. If you have lost most or all of your natural teeth due to disease, injury or aging, you may be a candidate for dentures.
Dentures come in two types:
A full set of dentures fit over the gums of your upper and lower jaws to fully replace your teeth. We recommend full dentures to patients who have lost all their teeth.
A partial denture sits on a metal frame and attaches to your natural teeth. Sometimes called a removable bridge, a partial denture is used to replace multiple missing teeth.
Regardless of the type of denture you need, you will care for your dentures the same way. Take them out at night and soak them in a denture cleaning solution. Brush them every morning to clean away built-up food debris and keep them fresh.
Over time, changes in your gum tissue and jawbone density will affect the fit of your dentures. You may use denture adhesives to ensure a snug and comfortable fit. Our dentist also recommends regular checkups to reline your dentures for better comfort and fit.
For patients who want a permanent solution to tooth loss, we may recommend fixed dentures. Fixed dentures are dentures supported by dental implants, anchoring them to your jaw for superior look and function. With fixed dentures, you will be able to resume normal eating and brushing habits without fear of your denture slipping or becoming uncomfortable.
Fixed dentures also prevent jawbone loss that occurs after you lose your natural teeth. Your jaw will fuse to the posts of your implants, preserving the look and strength of your jawbone. Be sure to discuss your needs and concerns with our dentist to determine if fixed dentures are right for you.
With proper care and regular checkups, your dentures will last five to eight years. Your dentures will eventually wear down and need to be replaced to ensure your comfort and overall oral health.
Your treatment costs will depend on your needs. We will provide a complete breakdown of all fees during your consultation. For your convenience, we accept insurance and offer flexible financing options to help you get the care you deserve.
