A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. Full dentures are used when all the teeth are missing and partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain. Every patient is fully examined to determine which solution is right for their situation. A conventional full denture is normally ready for the patient in two to three months after teeth are removed and gums have begun to heal. Partial Dentures are used when one or more natural teeth remain in the upper or lower jaw. Partial dentures may be fixed or removable based on the condition of your existing teeth. Do you think removable dentures may be the right solution for you? Call us today at 516-683-0888 to schedule a consultation with Dr. Grossman.
