For the millions of New Yorkers and Brooklyners reading this, we are here to talk about dentures. We all know what they do, who usually gets them, why we see them in a glass of water, and the jokes that come with them. They are important in a person’s everyday life when their real teeth begin to fail and become frail. Whether it’s a full or partial denture, it’s important to find the right ones made by the right people.
The cast metal partial denture is stronger, less bulky and offers a great fit. This partial has a metal framework to which our on-site laboratory will attach higher-quality denture teeth. Since our special metal framework is made by an outside laboratory, availability of this partial is about two to three weeks.
The flexible partial is made from a special material that gives you added comfort and fit. It is only available in participating practices.
Acrylic partial dentures are more affordable, but they tend to feel more bulky. This partial has an acrylic base into which the denture teeth are set and is attached to your natural teeth with small metal clasps. The acrylic partial may be available with more durable, natural-looking teeth, right up to the Ultra partial. The practice staff can inform you of availability in each office.
