Types Of Dentures
There are so many different types of dentures available today that weren’t available before. Regardless of what type of denture you may need, our dentists at Island Dental Associates will custom design them to fit your mouth and match your existing teeth. Here are over 20 options that we currently offer our patients.
Same-Day Denture Repairs, Relines, & Tooth Placement.
Island Dental Associates in Franklin Square is dedicated to providing you with the highest quality and affordability.
Complete dentures, also known as full dentures are a removable upper and lower set of either porcelain or acrylic teeth that are held together by an acrylic or metal base. When you have lost all or most of your teeth a complete upper and lower set of dentures can help you regain your confidence to smile once again.
When you have a few missing teeth, upper and/or lower partial dentures will fill the gaps in your teeth. They are attached to your natural teeth and can be unclipped and removed as needed.
A clear palate denture allows the natural tissue of your palate to show through so no one notices that you are wearing dentures. This option can be used on several types of dentures, even partial dentures. If you already have dentures, a short visit with your Island Dental Associate dentist may be all you need to get started with a clear palate denture.
Acrylic is an affordable option for your partial dentures. It can serve as a temporary solution before getting dental implants or a dental bridge. It can be the best option as a temporary partial while you wait for the dentures you need.
Implant supported partial dentures are secured to your jaw bone with small posts that have been surgically implanted. Your denture is attached to the posts and you can clean your implant-supported denture by brushing and rinsing with mouthwash.

Valplast dentures have a reputation as being the most comfortable dentures available. They are lightweight and flexible and are strong enough for normal wear and tear. Valplast also offers a lifetime guarantee against fractures or breaks.
An alternative to removing your teeth for full dentures is choosing a snap-on partial denture with implants. Instead of using a clasp to attach your partial denture to your permanent teeth, implants are surgically placed in your jawbone so that your partial denture can be snapped into place.
Using a minimally-invasive implant technique, with four dental implants, the Island Dental Associates dentists are able to provide you with a fixed full-arch prosthesis on the day of your procedure.
