If you’re wondering whether our Brooklyn dental implants or dentures are the best option for you, there are some features of each that you should keep in mind when making a decision. Here at Biddulph Family Dental, it is our goal to always provide you with the methods for replacing missing teeth so that you can regain your complete smile.
Traditional dentures have been around for a very long time. While there have been many advancements over the years, the general concept of them has remained the same. Dentures are removable. They consist of a plastic base colored to match your gums, with a supporting metal structure as a foundation. Prosthetic teeth are attached to it. The exact number depends on how many teeth you need to restore. In the case of partial dentures, there are clasps on either side of it to attach to your other teeth. Dental adhesive holds the dentures in at the gum line. This treatment is simple, effective, quick, and does not have any specific requirements to be a good candidate. Our Brooklyn dental implants give you a tooth replacement that looks, feels, and even acts like a real tooth. They don’t sit on your gums. They are anchored into your jaw. There are two main parts, which are the titanium post that is surgically placed in your jaw; and the tooth-colored crown that is cemented to the top of the post. Your jaw bone grows around and fuses with the post, turning it into a root that is as reliable as your natural ones. Your jaw bone must be thick enough to support the post, but even that can be addressed with bone grafting if you aren’t eligible on that basis.
