Periodontal disease, decay, and injuries are common reasons behind natural tooth loss. People with one or more missing teeth may find it difficult to chew foods, drink beverages, or even talk. There are a variety of options available to patients wishing to obtain a renewed smile. So, the first step in the process is to schedule a consultation with a reputable dentist to see which methods best meet your needs.
While dental implants and veneers garner most of the attention these days, dentures are still around, and modern advancements ensure that the prosthetic devices fit more comfortably than ever before. Unfortunately, people that choose dentures usually have to go for an extended period without teeth. Traditionally, the dentures are manufactured at an off-site location, and they will not be ready for approximately two weeks to a month. Don’t let this aspect catch you off guard by choosing an organization with an on-site dental lab. Some of the lab services available from our Long Island office include but are not limited to…
• Same Day Dentures, Repairs, And Relines
• Partial, Valplast, Or Full Dentures
• Mini Implant Supported Dentures
• Immediate Replacement Or Temporary Partial And Full Dentures
Limited Doctor Say Might Hinder The Final Result
Doctors can work closely together with lab technicians when they have an on-site dental lab. This collaboration is beneficial because it allows the team to create dentures that are the right size, shape, and shade to match your existing natural teeth. When the prosthetic devices are designed elsewhere, with limited dentist input, rather than getting the beautiful pearly whites that the patient envisioned, they may end up with a less than stellar smile.
Additionally, if the dentures are too thick, fit incorrectly, or cause pain, they may have to be sent away again, which leaves the client without their teeth for an even longer amount of time. Don’t let this become your fate. Instead, pick our dentist with an on-site dental lab to get the immediate results that you seek. If any alterations or adjustments need to be made to the prosthetic devices, they will be done in prompt fashion on the premises. Aside from looking fabulous after walking out the door, patients can eat, drink, and do other things that they normally would. Practice good oral hygiene to keep natural teeth as long as possible, but know where to turn when the time for dentures arises.
