According to the American College of Prosthodontists, it’s estimated that over 50 million people across the nation are missing at least one tooth. Over time, your teeth can become worn-down and damaged, ultimately resulting in needing to have them replaced or repaired. Fortunately, we offer a variety of helpful, custom-tailored restorative treatments to allow you to regain the complete function and feeling of your natural smile and replace missing teeth in Long Beach, NY, helping you maintain your confidence and a great quality of life.
For patients looking for a more permanent and stable alternative to traditional bridges or dentures, we offer implant-retained restorations. Secured by surgically-placed titanium posts, these prosthetics feel and look like your natural teeth. The posts themselves fuse to your jawbone through a natural process called osseointegration, which allows them to function like the roots of your teeth, preserving your jawbone and facial structure. This is also a great option for patients who are tired of dealing with slipping or shifting dentures!
If you’re missing one or more consecutive teeth, you may be able to benefit from our customized dental bridges. These prosthetics are comprised of two dental crowns on either side of free-standing replacement teeth, called pontics. The crowns are cemented to the natural teeth located on either side of the gap in your arch, anchoring the replacement teeth in place. With daily maintenance and care, these restorations will be able to last you for up to 15 years!
Whether you’re missing several or all of your teeth along an arch, full and partial dentures can help. They both consist of customized replacement teeth attached to a gum-colored acrylic base. Full dentures utilize the power of natural suction to stay in place while partial dentures are designed to fit securely around your natural remaining teeth. Once placed in your mouth, you’ll be able to speak and eat more easily, restoring your overall quality of life and helping boost your confidence.
