Dentures can be designed to replace a single tooth or an entire dental arch. These trusted restorations can be made for a fraction of the cost of fixed or "cemented" bridgework. At Livingston Dental Arts, we offer several types of dentures to meet the restorative needs of patients in Livingston, NJ. To review your candidacy for dentures, contact our office today.
Complete and Partial Dentures
We offer both complete and partial dentures. A traditional partial denture, also called a removable bridge, is used to replace more than three missing teeth. A complete denture is used to replace an entire arch.
Types of Dentures
A traditional denture is a removable prosthesis that is held in place using surrounding teeth or dental adhesives. Since their invention, advances in technology have introduced new types of dentures. At Livingston Dental Arts, we offer several types of dentures. These include:
- Traditional dentures: These removable dentures feature a gum-colored plastic base and artificial teeth. They are custom made to blend with surrounding teeth.
- Immediate dentures: These dentures can be placed as soon as your teeth are removed. Generally, they require more adjustments and are usually used only until permanent dentures can be made.
- Implant-supported dentures: These permanent restorations are held in place by dental implants, which are small metal posts that have fused with the jaw.
When you visit our office, our experienced doctors will work with you to determine the type of denture that is right for you. Contact Livingston Dental Arts to schedule a consultation.
