Types Of Dentures We Offer in Jersey City

Our office provides both traditional and implant-supported dentures to meet our patients’ restorative needs and cosmetic goals. We offer three unique types of dentures, including:

  • Partial dentures, often called a removable bridge, are used to replace multiple missing teeth. These restorations will typically have small metal clasps to hold them in place. These can be removed for your convenience.
  • Full dentures can replace an entire row of teeth and rely on natural suction and dental adhesives for support. Similar to partial dentures, full dentures can be removable.
  • Implant-supported dentures provide a stable and secure solution to significant tooth loss. These restorations connect to dental implants, which are embedded in your jaw. For patients who qualify, Dr. Rickerby can perform the All-on-4® technique to replace a full dental arch using only four implant posts.

Benefits of Dentures

Missing teeth can seriously impact your day-to-day routine, causing you discomfort and limiting your diet. However, dentures can improve your ability to chew and speak properly, significantly improving your quality of life. In addition, dentures can restore the aesthetics of your smile, helping you feel more confident in your appearance. Using a variety of strong, natural-looking materials, our office can provide the aesthetic restorations you need for a lifelike, durable smile.

Your Treatment

Depending upon your needs, it can several appointments to plan and customize your prosthesis. In some cases, you may require preparatory procedures before your dentures can be designed. These may include restorative or periodontal treatments, which can address underlying conditions like tooth decay or gum disease. If you are receiving implant-supported dentures and do not have sufficient bone tissue to support implants, you may first require a preliminary bone graft or sinus lift. To ensure the best results, Dr. Rickerby will evaluate your smile during your consultation and determine your treatment timeline. For those receiving implant-supported dentures, you should expect the entire process to take about two and a half months.

Improving Your Quality of Life

As soon as our team has completed all preparative dental work, we can begin the denture fitting process. We will take impressions and measurements of your jaw, which can be used to create a replica of your prosthesis. You will be able to try on your model dentures, so that we can establish proper color, shape, and fit. Once we have confirmed your denture is suited to your needs, your restoration can be manufactured. To provide added convenience, we offer second-day dentures, which are ready for you to wear the day after treatment. Book an appointment today. Call us at (201) 431-0288 today.
