If you are missing teeth, or your existing teeth can’t be repaired, dentures are a great option to restore your appearance and chewing ability. There are different types of dentures, and you should see an expert to find out which is best for you. You need to see Dr. Michael Bleyzer, at Thiells Dentist, in Pomona, New York. He has been providing excellent service to the residents of Rockland County, New York, for 18 years, and he will provide the same expertise for you.

If you need a denture, you owe it to yourself to get the most comfortable and most natural looking denture possible. When you visit Dr. Bleyzer, he can discuss the different types of dentures, including:

A conventional denture- which is a full set of teeth, either upper or lower arch, or both arches; the conventional denture is created and placed in your mouth after teeth have been removed and your tissue has healed, which typically takes 6-8 weeks.

An immediate denture- this full denture is placed immediately after the teeth are removed, eliminating the need to be without teeth. Your soft tissues will shrink as they heal, so the immediate denture will need to be relined to fit as the tissues heal. After healing, a conventional denture can be made.

An overdenture- this denture is made to fit over any teeth that can remain in your mouth. The remaining teeth function as support for the denture. Overdentures have the advantage of preserving bone density and shape of your jaw. Another type of overdenture is the implant supported overdenture, using implants in place of teeth.

There are also partial dentures, commonly called removable partials, which replace only a few teeth.

To find out more about the denture process and which type may be best for you please visit or stop in and see Dr. Michael Bleyzer, your Rockland County denture expert at Thiells Dentist, in Pomona, New York. He will be happy to provide you with a full evaluation on which denture might be right for you. Call today!
