If you have experienced significant tooth loss or have had to have many of your teeth extracted, you know how much it can affect how you go about your day to day activities. Simple things such as chewing your food or pronouncing word properly suddenly become challenging. You may feel self conscious about smiling in public. Our Larchmont dentist
, Dr. Todd D Wortman, understands these struggles and is here to help. Removable dental prostheses, also known as dentures or false teeth, are a wonderful option for dealing with the issues associated with tooth loss. Depending on the amount of teeth you are missing and their location in your mouth. Dr. Wortman will recommend either full or partial dentures for you. The first step to getting your own dentures is to visit our Larchmont dental care facility for a consultation and evaluation. During this initial appointment Dr. Wortman will thoroughly examine the current state of your teeth and discuss the process with you before beginning to have your own set of dentures fabricated. Your dentures will be completely customized to fit your mouth comfortably and safely, and in a way that looks completely natural.
