If you have several missing teeth that need to be replaced, our dentist can provide you with a removable dental prosthesis in the form of full dentures or partial dentures. When you need this type of expert dental care, you will want to visit us at our prosthodontics practice, Todd D Wortman, DDS. Our top-notch prosthodontics, Dr. Todd Wortman, will be able to provide you the very highest level of Larchmont prosthodontics care.
As well as providing patients with full dentures or partial dentures, we also are able to provide patients with flexible dentures. These flexible dentures contain no metal, and are often welcomed as a better aesthetic option for our patient. When a patient has missing teeth, it is very important that these teeth are replaced by some method. If teeth are not replaced by our Larchmont prosthodontics dentist, the patient is sure to develop some type of additional dental problem. To begin with, if there is a gap where teeth are missing in the patient’s mouth, adjacent teeth may try to move over to fill in the space. This can cause the bite to be moved out of alignment and additional dental problems will be created. Additionally, there will be serious problems for the teeth that are located directly above or below the space left by the missing tooth. When a patient chews, the tooth directly opposite the space will be pushed up and down, and it is likely that some type of serious problem will be created in the jawbone. This can lead to periodontal disease and even to eventual additional tooth loss. This is why it is so important to come to see our dentist regarding getting removable dental prosthesis to replace your missing teeth. Our dentist will make sure that your new dentures fit your mouth perfectly, and looked great. Not only will your smile remain healthier, but you will look and feel better as well.
